Have you ever felt so stressed out at work that you want to quit? Right then and there. Just walk out the door. Ciao. Hasta la vista, baby! I don't blame you.

A lot of companies try to “fix” workplace issues with free pizza, happy hours and trips to the bowling alley. While these excursions might provide temporary relief, it’s almost needless to say that empty calories, hang overs and bad shoes don’t address what’s really going on — the deeper needs of human beings who are just trying to find their place in the world and who only want to make a difference.

That’s where I come in. I am Colette Kelli, heard weekly as the host of my own radio show, “Beautiful Monday: Making Mondays NOT suck one job at a time!”

I believe the secret to happiness at work is to treat your job as if it's your own business. Unleash your inner entrepreneur--your inner Donald Trump except YOU have better hair.

Ha ha. I crack myself up.

Why should you listen to me? Let’s put it this way… I have SURVIVED working in corporate America for over 30 years in at least 50 jobs. Actually, I’ve lost count. HR people just love me ;-)

Over the course of all those companies and all those jobs, I went from thinking I was wasting my life to experiencing life through the lens of passion, activating my infinite potential.

I have developed some serious bad ass hard won wisdom THAT WORKS for me and it will work for you.

Tune in and turn on! With special guests and calls from listeners, I share simple techniques anyone can do, anywhere, anytime, to turn the job you have, the one that’s stressing you out, the one you think you hate into your next great career move.

Talk to you soon!
