On October 20th Beth and I interviewed Monica Parker, JD about the joy of being fully engaged in our work and knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that we’re making the unique difference we’re meant to make. We discussed several of the roadblocks to making a career change—roadblocks such as (1) identity issues; (2) lack of support from family and friends; and (3) educational and personal debt. Monica offered us the three-step process she uses with her clients (lawyers and non-lawyers alike) emphasizing that we can’t just rely on fate or chance to bring us a lovely, new career. Monica may be reached through her website http://www.leavingthelaw.com or by email at monica(at)leavingthelaw.com.

Would love to hear what you think!

Monica’s Coaching Suggestion

Remember what it was like to be a child?  Carefree, curious, joyful, playful, open.  Temper tantrums experienced and then quickly let go.  Lots of laughter and fun.  If you didn’t want to do it, you didn’t.  Tap into that child-like nature. You still have it.  It’s that kind of energy and passion and excitement that will sustain you as you make your career transition.  As adults, we tend to squelch that stuff.  We call it immaturity.  Nonsense.  It’s the essence of living a purpose-filled life. Think of any adults you know who love what they do.  I’ll bet they’re exhibiting some, if not all, of the characteristics described above.

Monica’s Quote for the Day

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”  ~Poet Mary Oliver
