How do I find my purpose or my calling? How do I find work that pays the bills and makes my heart sing? How do I incorporate self-care and self-love into my career goals? How do I change careers once I've already started down one path?
If you've asked yourself any of these questions, join author and facilitator Adam Smiley Poswolsky for a one-day workshop on coming alive with your work and creating a purpose-driven career. In this participatory and creative workshop, you'll complete exercises that will help you define what meaningful work is for you, find more clarity on your life purpose, and how to find a job that's right for you. You'll identify the roadblocks and fears holding you back and develop a personal road map for what career success looks like for you in coming months and years. You'll develop a self-love plan so you can show up fully to share your gifts with the world. Most importantly, you'll identify the tangible action steps to get where you want to go and learn how to build a supportive community to reach your vision of success.
Join Poswolsky's lecture on finding purposeful work in the 21st century. His book, The Quarter-Life Breakthrough, an Amazon bestseller, shares the stories of many twenty- (and thirty-) somethings who are discovering how to work with purpose (and still pay their rent). Despite struggling with debt, recession, and the jobs crisis, these millennials aren't motivated by money. Rather, they're driven to make the world more compassionate, innovative, and sustainable.
Topics include how to:
· Get unstuck and turn your quarter-life (or midlife) crisis into a breakthrough.
· Find alignment between your work and your purpose.
· Make meaningful career changes and get paid for who you are and what you believe in.
