My goal is for this website to help you leverage these ingredients as you discover your vocation.
In 2013, I was let go from MediaComplete. I’d been working there for over 9 years. During those nine years, my wife gave birth to four more children, we dealt with some serious medical issues, and life happened. We’d actually moved to Nashville, TN so that I could work at the company. However, during those 9 years, I’d been so busy working in my life, I’d never built my life!
Losing my job was not a fun experience. I had a family to feed, a mortgage to pay, and didn’t have connections with people outside of my old job. Over the next 6 months, as I conducted my job search, I was able to discover four simple ingredients (Passion, Skills and Abilities, Interests, and Environment) that put me in a place to find my next job, career, and, ultimately, my vocation.
In 2014, I started working with Acklen Avenue. I love the company, love the team I’m working with, and love what I’m doing. My job gives me an opportunity to pursue my passions, empowers me to use my skills and abilities, and allows me to pursue my interests while also providing a great environment for me.
Since then, I’ve coached other people as they began looking for their next job. Pulling together the same ingredients: passions, skills and abilities, interests and environment, I help them pursue the best career for them.
I couldn’t have done it without help. For some of the best resources and references I’ve found and used, check out my Resources page.
