How interested are you in the career transition guide described below?
Perhaps the most frequent question asked by visitors to Peak Prosperity is “What Should I Do?”.
An important component of the answer to this question is finding purpose, specifically in regards to what you do for a living (what your “career” is).
My work at Peak Prosperity provides me with the opportunity to speak with a large number of people each week. From these discussions, I would estimate over 70% of these folks are actively dissatisfied or, at best, unfulfilled by their current job. The reasons span a wide range: some simply feel a bad fit with the career fate steered them into, others fear their expertise will have little relevance to a future shaped by the Three E forces. Whatever the cause, most express a desire to switch to an entirely different profession if given the opportunity to do so.
Through research and application, I have learned that there is indeed a process that yields the self-discovery, visioning, planning and implementation that ultimately results in finding professional fulfillment. It has been conducted for decades and is well-understood by competent career counseling professionals.
There’s little about this process that is novel or complex. It doesn’t require you to spend a lot of money. It doesn’t require you to go through any special training beforehand.
The difficulty lies in both having the courage to wrestle with yourself as well as the reserve to see this journey through to its conclusion.
I have firsthand knowledge of how well this process works; I used it to successfully transition from dissatisfied Silicon Valley executive to proud co-founder of PeakProsperity.com.
I've just finished the manuscript for a detailed (50+ pages) career transition guide based on this methodology, titled Finding Your Way To Your Authentic Career. It lays out a step-by-process for first identifying the work you're best-suited for, and then securing a career in your new 'best fit' field.
While it's going to take several more weeks to polish and publish it, I'm interested in developing an informed estimate for the relevance and appeal of such a guide.
