I worked in many different companies and sectors. Government, Manufacturing, Fortune 500. I’ve been on all sides of the table too. When a hiring manager has a need, they usually are doing their best to make sure they’ve got someone in mind already.
Let me ask you a question: When do you have the most power to negotiate? Out of all the possible times, the very best time to negotiate your pay, job, terms or anything else is when you’re making a career change to a new company and new job. Specifically right after they’ve made you an offer. Why is that?
Do you feel like you’re leaving your family behind while you try to gain success in your career? Or maybe you feel stuck in your career because you’re trying to be there for your family?

Have you wondered how you can move from being a good job candidate to being a great candidate? Have you identified your big “value-adds” from your past job experiences and how you can apply them to any industry? Have you wondered how to open more doors of opportunity during informational interviews?
How to Find Time for a Career Change
What do you think is the secret to why high performers get help so easily (and we enjoy helping them) and why it’s so painful to have to help many other people? Is it that they are genetically endowed with likeability, or that we’re just biased as human beings to want to help people who are already doing well? Maybe, but I don’t think so.
What if you get rejected from what you thought was going to be your purpose? What if the work you thought would be meaningful isn’t?

If that’s you - you’re going to learn how to turn an end into a beginning of what’s next in your life.
When thinking about meaningful work and the various pieces that need to come together, it might cause you to wonder, “Are these even possible together, and, if so, how do real people actually find these opportunities?” With the help of science and some real people who have done a great job finding meaningful work and career happiness, we’re going to break down the answers for you.
We are announcing several things that are going on right now with HTYC! Listen to this special (limited time) episode!
Organizations that focus on employee experiences create more profit. Employees want more meaningful work and work experiences and are willing to take less pay for it?

Is meaningful work really even obtainable in the first place? The short answer is “yes,” but in reality it happens differently than what most of the world thinks it does.

Many of us get exhausted. Maybe it’s because of a lack of sleep. Maybe it’s from working too much or too hard. Maybe it’s from stress. But being exhausted doesn’t mean that it has to be a negative in your life. Laura Morrison was used to be exhausted, but now it feels different. “So, I still leave work exhausted. It's just that now the exhaustion is from kind of flexing my brain and personal development and kind of much more excitement about the work that I'm doing and being invested in i
