Career Adventure Guide

Our Career Adventure Guide

Welcome to 2022 and beyond.  We are here to help you make 2022 a Joyous Adventure.  And we’re here to help you build skills and strengths to get you unstuck and moving in a bolder, more energized direction.

Why We Do This

There are lots of online career guides, skill quizzes, and heavily-marketed job sites out there.  We love many of them.

This Guide is the joyful exploration of what you might want to do to broaden your ideas and bring in new possibilities.  We aim to help you

  • rethink your own storyline and frameworks on jobs,
  • find the right tools and networks for you, and
  • set up personalized and supported follow-up systems to keep the journey and explorations going.

The Time is Now
