claim your career bliss: interview with l’erin alta-devki

“I knew that [my day job] wasn’t sustainable although I was getting money to travel [and] to do all these other things that I wanted … I did not want to get up in the morning and go to work. There was something greater that was calling me that I was not moving into ……

claim your career bliss: interview with the purpose fairy

“[If you] peel off the layers that other people put on you…you shine. You go back to your origins … [To live this way] imagine yourself on your deathbed now – I certainly did. Now ask yourself this: ‘Is this how you want to live your life [until then]?’” – The Purpose Fairy, Writer and…

claim your career bliss: interview with tad hargrave

“One of my mentors … his money vanished … like 2 million dollars of his life savings gone … In an interview he said: ‘I spent 40 years doing what I wanted to do. I still have those 40 years. I just lost the money. [Others] lost the money and the 40 years.’ … One…

claim your career bliss: interview with tanya geisler

“If it’s not hard, then it’s not important. Bliss is fluff, bliss is fun, bliss is joy. That’s for after you’re done working. That’s for Friday nights. That’s for a very small window. Bliss is for vacation. This is life baby. If you’re not sweating and working your fingers to the bone, then it’s not…

i’m fine, thanks.

Oh no. You’re not. Don’t even start with me. Seriously, when you tell someone “I’m fine, thanks” have you ever really paused to consider how not fine things really are? If you were really fine you would be on purpose, you would be singing your song (that only you can sing). By the way, you…

“In any context … I want to be doing things that I am super passionate about, that have all kinds of energy, but that are [also] restful. Not this kind of ‘striving, frantic, tension-producing, what am I doing, who am I, what’s going on, exhausting hamster wheel-spinning in my head’ – I don’t think these…

claim your career bliss: interview with geekstar paul jarvis

“[Entrepreneurs and solo-preneurs]* are afraid to be themselves in their work. They think [being authentic] isn’t professional, that people won’t like them, that their personality won’t match with everybody else’s. I know that my personality doesn’t match with everybody. And I’m happy about that . It’s how I know that who is working with me…

what was i thinking (when i decided to become an entrepreneur)?

So you’re considering entrepreneurship and thinking to yourself: “What am I thinking? I must be crazy!” Starting a business seems so risky after all. And maybe you’re like I was – almost mad at yourself that there isn’t some other way that you could be happy, doing something equally as gratifying without all of the…

a real career conversation

Have you ever had a real conversation with someone about your career? Someone you felt safe with and could really trust? Probably not. And understandably. Career is the aspect of our lives that has as much to do with survival as self-expression. And we’ve conditioned ourselves to believe that survival and self-expression cannot co-exist in…
