There’s no point in you searching for a job if you don’t know what you really want. . .
You’ve been trapped in your job for a while – maybe years now – because you don’t really know what you want to do next or how to get there.
And if you don’t know what you really want, it doesn’t seem to make sense to be careless with your responsibilities and just make a leap for the sake of doing something different.
Your job has lost all it’s magic – if it ever had any. You just don’t feel any excitement about it, and you can’t muster the energy to care. And sometimes you’re worried about what that means for your job security.
Do you feel like crying on Sunday nights or just driving somewhere else on Monday morning?
Or maybe it’s a quiet slow death. No real punches to the gut, but just a slow, torturous slide into oblivion. . .
I know what it means to struggle with work you hate.
Let me tell you my story . . .
It starts a long time ago (well maybe not that long), way back when I was a kid. My dad was a hard worker, and he did everything he could to provide for our family – my mom, me and my sister and little brother.
But “everything he could” turned out to include working insane hours at a job that was not only extremely stressful, it was sometimes physically dangerous.
It took its toll physically, emotionally and psychically on the whole family, but still, he wasn’t able to focus on anything more inspirational than doing the work that was right in front of him so he could be rock solid for us.
I always thought it was such a waste of his huge potential and that it was just really, really sad.
And I’m afraid your job might feel the same way . . .
But whatever is happening at work, there’s another, sadder story.
And that is that no matter how painful your work day, there is also the lost possibility of what your day could have been.
Because the truth is that you could have had a work day that you loved. You could have a job you love. A career you love.
But you’re just not sure what that means or how to make that happen.
And that’s why you’re reading this now.
Career coaching to help you stop being stuck in your job and start doing work that feels like you.
I help 30, 40 and 50-something professionals, executives and C-Levels find or design work they want to be doing. Work that is more passionate and creative. Work that feels like YOU.
If you find yourself feeling stressed, bored, or with a constant nagging sense that you should be doing something different or something more, I can help you.
If you know that your creativity and potential is being killed at your job, and is just waiting to be unleashed onto something (even though you don’t know what it is yet), my career coaching can help you.
If you wonder if you have to stay shackled to the “golden handcuffs” or can you figure out a way to use your talent, skill, and passion and get paid for it (instead of just slaving away at something that makes you feel like a zombie), I can coach you to a career you feel amazing about.
When you work with me, you get deep insights and career change knowledge.
I understand you, fast. I’ve spent years working as a clinician and therapist, as a career and mindset coach, and I have an intuitive ability that’s a lot less weird than it sounds.
I know that finding the right career is about so much more than just landing a job.
It’s about finding the intersection of what you truly want to do and what someone will pay you for, and then crushing all the obstacles – internal and external – that get in your way.
I’m Jessica Sweet, career coach and therapist. I’ve been doing career coaching and career consulting for over 5 years to help clients change careers, and I’ve spent my whole career helping people understand themselves better.
I work with people who are successful, passionate, and can’t be easily defined by one label because they are good at (and excited about) too many different things.
It’s hard for them to put a label on themselves because they have so many skills and talents that they just don’t know what to call themselves, and they’re tired of being put in a box.
Does that sound like you? Are you ready to find work that feels like it uses all of you?
Here’s what success has looked like for some of my clients:
Career Coaching Makes It All Possible
My entire career has been dedicated to helping people understand themselves better and achieve their goals.
But Jess, what if . . .
What if I really don’t know what I want to do?
What if I make too much money to leave my job?
What if I’m worried about what people will say about leaving?
What if I’ve spent a ton of time and money to get where I am?
What if I don’t know what my passions are?
What if I am totally confused?
What if I’m not ready to leave my job just yet?
What if something else is holding me back?
To you I ask: Are you happy in your career?
Because if the answer is no, it truly is time to email me, no matter what else is going on.
I’ve seen all these situations and coached people through them. The most important thing is your happiness. (And yes, I recognize you probably won’t be happy if you don’t make any money or leave your job too soon or jump too fast into something else you don’t love. . . )
The real question you should be asking is this:
Am I ready for career happiness?
If the answer is yes, then email me now and we’ll talk.
