and ease into the conversation.
Everything is waiting for you.

Regardless of your age or stage, the career center guides you through a series of self-reflection steps to define and document what you want. Isn’t this the time to get out of the passenger seat and take over the steering wheel of your career?
listen for what it intends to do with you.

I developed these tools as career/life mirrors. Tools to help you fully express who you are and to move you closer to who you want and need to be.
I have curated many powerful sources of inspiration, motivation, provocation, and education that have informed and shaped my journey.
I write to share ideas inspired by others to inform your journey. My blog, ass kickers and other posts are intended to provide you with provocative insights to align your life with your virtues.
We live in a society where our health is an afterthought. We subscribe to a trickle-down theory for our well-being. We are told to fit in, to conform, to assimilate, and to get along. This crazy tension between these pressures and who we are, want to be and are meant to be, undermines our well-being. So much of our society tries to push us into molds behind the façade of independence and individuality. As the old Asian proverb espoused, Expectations to go to college, buy a big house, nice car, get promoted, buy more things, the kids go to college and try to outdo their parents and the vicious cycle continues. The stock market soars, GDP rises but we feel like we have more debt than dreams. A recent study of adolescents showed that suppressed “meaning” and “dreams” were the sources of their anxiety. Can you hear the hammers?
So much of our society operates from a trickle-down mentality.
