Know what you want to do next in your career – and get paid for it.
It's ok if you are 40 (or older) and you still don't know what you want to do when you grow up.
You're not alone. In fact, if that is you, read on.
Because we’re never given much direction on choosing a career that fits. And even if you happen to find something that does work, you might have fallen out of love with it after being in that same career for a while.
The big question looms: What's next?
But that question turns out to be bigger, and more painful than you'd imagined. . .
A bad career ruins everything.
Not knowing what you want to do in your career isn't just about work.
It impacts every aspect of your life, until it's the only thing you can focus on.
You've tried on your own to figure out what's next, but you're not having any luck.
It seems like you've tried everything, and you keep coming up empty.
- You've read all the books,
- Taken career and personality assessments until you feel like a lab rat.
- And Googled "what am I supposed to do when I grow up" more times than you want to admit, but you still always feel like you're spinning your wheels.
Still, no answers. Only the empty, sinking feeling of being really unclear about what you want to do, or what you can do, that isn't what you're doing now, and no clear concept of how to begin to figure that out.
And then, real life kicks in.
There's the money you need to make. You think, "It would be nice to quit and explore what's out there," but you're not going to do that. You begin to think this idea of finding something you love to do is all a dream, so you try to get yourself back to reality.
But you're miserable.
You worry that your lack of motivation at work is going to be noticed, and you'll be fired, so you do your best, but you're still only dialing it in.
You're hating work. You're grouchy at home.
Pretty soon, you find your career is impacting your health, your well-being, your relationships, your sleep, your motivation, everything, and you know something's got to change. . .
Can You Really Figure Out WhatYou Want Next?
When you find something that excites you, it can energize the rest of your life.
But you can't live on sunshine and rainbows alone. You've gotta earn some money. And at this point in your career, we're not talking about what you can find in your couch cushions, either. Real money.
Is it possible to change careers to something you're excited about and make money as well?
Absolutely. If you couldn't, changing careers would be easy. Being able to do all the things you need to do at once is one of the major things that makes career change hard, or you would have done it by now.
But changing careers to something you love and making money it's absolutely possible.

A Clear Path Forward -
A Career Change Group for Midlife Professionals & Executives
While it's easy to dream of running off to bartend on a tropical beach, or wait tables until you make it big in Hollywood, or live off your travel blog while exploring the far reaches of the world, we have to be at least a little practical.
In this group, our goal is to:
(1) figure out the career that excites you,
(2) that you can get hired for, and
(3) that you can make money doing.
You might have taken all the tests, read all the books and even been to all the seminars. But in my experience, those things only address part of the problem, or the wrong problem all together. Looking at your interests, goals, and the unique challenges you can solve in the marketplace will allow you to target a career that is right for you.
In fact, the sooner you figure out what is next, the sooner you'll be on your way, happily earning your next paycheck.

After one career change that didn't work well, I knew I needed to find meaningful work but had no idea how to get there. Through our discoveries and conversations, Jessica led me on a new pathway to graduate school and a future in non-profit service. Jessica is someone you can trust to offer honest advice and take the time to accurately direct you to your best-fit. I've now recently finished a master's degree in a new field and have a wonderful job in a new city. Jessica was a pivotal element to this change, and I would recommend her services to anyone.

Here Is the Overview of What We'll Cover
Check out my proven four-part system below.
Defining You & What You Want
Not knowing what you want next in a career can feel like a lonely, empty void. You need to know what you want and what lights you up. What kind of experiences align with what you're looking for? Which ones don't? In this module, we'll get clearer on you, and what you're truly looking for.
Your Career Needs
In this set of modules, we look at what you need to make this job work for you. What are the nuts-and-bolts requirements that you have to have before you'd say yes to a job?
A Job You Can Be Hired For
The rubber is meeting the road now. Because while it's all well and good to be excited about something, it's another thing to make it realistic. Here's where we take a look at transferable skills and more to figure out what you really can do. But there's a trick: This is not a linear process. We're using design thinking throughout. That means we're looping back on our assumptions and decisions as we gain more info.
Once you have a job title in hand that looks like it checks all the boxes, you have to do your best to make sure that it is "The One." Or at least the one for now. Use one of my tried-and-true methods for making sure your new career is your true love before you take a flying leap.
