Looking for career ideas? Struggling to discover your true calling or what “it” is? That one thing you’re going to be good at but just haven’t had the time or the resources to really pursue? We know this feeling all too well.
When you’re in a line of work (or even unemployed) that you aren’t finding fulfilling, fun or worth your time, it’s difficult to find the energy or the drive to find a good career or business to pursue that you truly find rewarding.
Your time and energy may be exhausted. You may feel like you’re not only running on a never-ending treadmill, but there’s no hope for finding a way off it.
On top of it all, you don’t have the extra money you need to even make ends meet, much less look for a career or start a business in a field you know you’d enjoy more.
