Sharon chose quality of life, without leaving salary behind. Our time was so helpful to me. While our conversations seemed in some ways very casual your questions and probing really gave me pause to think. In facing the sense that I might get laid off (which I was right about), and wondering about starting my own business - I was really at a crossroad and struggling. While I wanted to find more meaningful work, and get out of the corporate rat race so to speak, I wasn't quite ready to jump out of my salary. With a child entering high school, it was too soon. As it happened, I was laid off but had 3 terrific jobs to select from as well as an option to start a business with some friends, In the end, in great part due to our conversations, I ended up taking a job which was absolutely ideal for me at this stage of life. While I opted to delay entrepreneurial adventures, I took a job which is extremely rewarding. While still very satisfying financially, I actually chose the job which offered the lowest salary - but which offers a great sense of purpose and a solid quality of life. I truly don't think I would have landed where I am had it not been for your guidance and helping me really think hard and evaluate where my priorities lie. Thanks so much for your help Jessica! I would happily recommend you to others looking for support at a juncture. You are gently probing while being respectful, curious and insightful, not to mention a great listener who can summarize and feed back some very important dimensions to the conversation.
