Pop the bubbly or crack open the kombucha because…we’re celebrating today!
Three years ago today (April 1, 2019) I hit “publish” on the Flourish Careers website for the very first time.
I remember thinking to myself, “Either this is going to be the biggest April Fool’s Day joke…or it’s going to be the greatest joy!”
Luckily, it turned out to be the best decision I ever made, and I’m SO grateful to you for coming along on this adventure with me.
Truthfully, as an introvert #UrbanHermit, visibility on the internet and reaching out to strangers has always felt pretty daunting, but I created this community for heart-based job seekers anyway.
And I’ve been blown away by the kindness, insight, and generosity of the humans I’ve been lucky enough to meet through it.
Together, we have…
-Pulled weeds of doubt and discouragement.
-Left environments that drained us and stunted our growth.
-Planted our feet firmly in new paths to fulfillment.
-And said “yes!” to find the places and ways in which we can truly flourish.
Reinvigorating Your Career from the Inside Out
When you’re ready for a career change, it’s easy to think of it as running AWAY from something. Difficult bosses, a draining work environment, feeling overworked and underappreciated, the Sunday scaries…
But to truly reinvigorate your job search, you have to reframe your thinking.
What are you running TOWARD? Your passions, the people that inspire you, a lifestyle that excites you, a love of Monday mornings, a new role that generates your energy, an industry where you can make an impact…
And once you know you’re running toward all that, it’s easy to pick up the pace.
