    visit to the Carolinas I spent an afternoon wandering the River Arts District in Asheville NC a couple of months ago This unique neighborhood along the French Broad River is home to more than 165 artists with working studios located in 18 turn of the century industrial buildings I loved that people are welcome to wander in and talk with the artists and if you re lucky observe them at their craft What really struck me was the unbridled enthusiasm of the artists I spoke with Their passion for their work was a tangible living thing exuding from each studio I visited No one tried to sell me anything either I loved that Take Jonas Gerard for example Born in Casablanca Morocco in 1941 he migrated to NYC and began showing his art on the streets at the age of 16 Although he spent years working in the engineering field his passion for his art eventually lead him to pursue it full time Largely self taught he is best known for his abstract art He describes the essence of it as To unfold the spirit of self exploration by painting or creating freely without restraint or self criticism To develop a deeper trust in one s intuition and instinct as they happen To realize that letting go of set goals opens up a whole world of infinite possibilities I think these are terrific goals for anyone seeking fulfillment in their work don t you agree William B Leonard of Bold Life said it would be hard maybe even impossible to find anyone who is more passionate and energetic about his work than Jonas Gerard He is an artist with the heart of a showman and he happily welcomes visitors into his studio to watch him work As he paints he dances in front of the canvas to music that blares raucously from his cd player and talks while painting saying that he has no idea where the music and paint will take him Another studio I visited was Pattiy Torno s When she was in high school she decided to head towards fashion design as a career She says on her webpage It was the only career I could think of that would allow me to earn a living doing what I love most sewing She apprenticed in the fashion industry in New York and then started her own business in the 1980 s as she wanted to get back to the simple joy of playing with fabric She began making quilts See her picture above with a thimble on her finger and quilt behind her As I sat in her studio drinking herbal tea that chilly afternoon I was struck by how much she truly loves what she does Pattiy shared her work and encouraged me to touch and try on her creations I walked out with one of her lovely fleece hats on my head Whenever I wear it I think of the joy of the artist who made it and it makes me feel good it s nice and warm too Do you have passion at work If you are shaking your head NO you might re consider if you feel or express any of the following Empowered energized excited unstoppable joy entertaining creative evocative motivated a sense of flow giving to others or sharing your talents And if none of those words apply you might rethink your career path Life is too short to spend more than half your waking hours in passionless work Filed Under Featured Finding Your Passion Tagged With

Peneguy an editor with the Wisconsin State Journal The subsequent article Ages stages are factors in education career was published in the newspaper on 12 10 12 It was at the back of the Sports section under the heading Education for Life and I thought it might be helpful to share it with you Here it is in full All the world s a stage and all the men and women are merely players they have their exits and their entrances And one man in his time plays many parts His acts being seven ages William Shakespeare The average American now works close to 50 years That s a heck of a long time to do something you detest Luckily you don t have to Even in today s economy and job market you don t have to feel trapped at a job that makes you want to run screaming for the exit Nor do you have to feel hopeless if your career is threatened by changes in technology and society Whatever stage of life you re in whether you re new to the workforce or a seasoned worker you have options in education and occupation You just have to find out what you really want to do know what your talents and gifts are and figure out who needs what you have to offer says Madison based career life coach Dee Relyea Your 20s Although some people are questioning whether or not college still offers a good ROI labor force data still reveals that the college educated do earn more than their peers without degrees and the higher the education attained the higher one s earnings over a lifetime The times of spending seven years in college for a degree in Medieval Literature may be gone but college is still a smart choice as long as one s chosen career path requires a college degree An awesome thing about being in your 20 s is that you may have great flexibility at this stage of life Relyea talks about Sally who attended college in Minnesota and earned a liberal arts degree After she returned to her home state of WI she went to work in an off which didn t suit her said Relyea Because she had a roommate which lowered her living expenses she had some wiggle room in terms of her salary needs So she worked part time in retail and part time providing marketing for a martial arts school She began trying on different workplaces says Relyea She discovered she really liked social media and since she had no need for a steady paycheck she decided to do that and be a freelance writer full time Since all of her work was done via computer she was able to live anywhere so she moved to Denver It was the perfect scenario for Sally Your 30s Another client of Relyea s Bob got a computer science degree went to work at Epic where he had no trouble getting his foot through the door He loved his job until his position changed and he was required to travel frequently This was a problem because he had dogs and he was miserable with the travel aspect of his job Bob realized that his favorite thing was teaching computer skills to other people so he stared a home business doing that He needed to earn a little more so he picked up a part time job at the Apple store Addendum to this story from Dee which evolved into a full time career and where incidentally he met the love of his life and is not only fully engaged in his work he is engaged to be married The universe works in wondrous ways Your 40s Betsy had a high end marketing job at a Fortune 500 company As technology advanced and Betsy was required to carry a smart phone she found she had no respite from the office whatsoever says Relyea Betsy was a single mom with two adolescents and she was working 70 hours a week Then she heard the company was going to be bought out She came to me to create an exit strategy says Relyea Betsy completed a career assessment the MBTI which revealed her natural personality preferences and transferable skills She discovered she wanted to teach She had a master s degree in marketing but she needed to go back to school for a teaching degree When she was laid off she got a severance package which gave her the time and the money to get the education she needed She was prepared and thrilled when she got that pink slip says Relyea Today Betsy is a high school teacher and loves what she does Your 50s and 60s In middle age many people find themselves discontented with unfulfilling jobs They want to do something they are passionate about says Relyea Sometimes they have been downsized and sometimes they want to respond to an inner calling You have a right to enjoy what you do for a living says Relyea It s really not a luxury she says We don t have much time on this earth You shouldn t have to do something you don t like Often people in this age range have golden handcuffs they re held hostage by a big house or a fancy car or expensive recreation But you can choose to downsize your standard of living she says People have successfully done that to find more fulfilling work A lot of people in their 50s freelance or consult and work part time in retail or whatever to make ends meet Multiple streams of income are the way to go Relyea has answers for any questions you may ask For example what if you want to start a home business but you need health insurance You do have options she says If you have a spouse you may get it through them Umbrella group policies are available the Chamber of Commerce may offer insurance as do almost all professional associations You might be able to get COBRA to tide you over until insurance is easier to purchase through the Affordable Care Act You can find a way to do what you have to do The bottom line is that you do have choices There are many paths available just decide which one you want to take I ve seen some people achieve some amazing things says Relyea I d love to hear stories of your career experiences Please comment below Dee Filed Under Career Transition Featured Tagged With career consulting freelance fulfillment job social media work Merging Work and Play September 25 2012 by Dee Relyea I love the sense of playfulness the artist captured in the movement and sheer delight of the two children in this picture I took this shot while waiting for my plane in the Greenville Spartenburg airport in SC It is a reminder to have fun to find time to play in our lives and to experience light hearted moments I am heading there again this week and remembered this photo I got to thinking that the average person spends an inordinate amount of time at work and not enough time in play The traditional American work ethic is to indulge in leisure pursuits or play only when our work is done There is a common belief that work requires self discipline long hours and sacrifices As a career coach I often ask people what the word work means to them I get answers like boring drudgery wage slave too many hours frustrating exhausting routine hard meaningless etc I remember asking my daughter as a new college grad what came to mind when she hears people talking about getting a job and going to work She thought for a moment and then said I see a sweaty bald guy in overalls dragging a ball and chain in a warehouse with a concrete floor and small windows and it s raining outside and the water is dripping on the floor I wonder how many other people have such dour imagery around the concept of work FYI my daughter is an entrepreneur at heart and is enjoying being a freelance writer and social media consultant in Denver as I write this We are taught that we must strive for success and be our best and work hard to get ahead Well meaning parents teachers and other authority figures tell us to keep your nose to the grindstone and pay your dues and climb the ladder to success This doesn t sound like much fun to me Does this advice motivate you to go out there and get a job Surely there is a way to make a living and be happy at the same time a way to merge work and play What if we shift our perspective and start bringing a sense of playfulness into our jobs Wouldn t our workday be more pleasurable Absolutely Let s look at the concept of play As in this photo the children appear to be alive in the moment are having fun and seem to be exhilarated Considering they are sculptures that s kudos to the artist How can we bring this joy this sense of fun and being present into our daily work lives A good place to start is by looking at your situation with new eyes Here are some questions to consider Does your work environment support you or deplete you Are you doing work you enjoy and find satisfying Do you feel valued and appreciated at work by peers and management If freedom and flexibility are important values for you does your current work provide these Think of play as an activity in which you are fully present enjoying the moment feeling free valued and appreciated by the other players Whether you work for somebody else or are self employed there are ways to bring more playfulness into your life For starters if your work environment doesn t support you change it This is easier to do if you are the boss but even as am employee there are often options to personalize your work situation Would you be more comfortable and potentially more productive with an ergonomic chair or an office with a window How about suggesting flex time or job sharing to balance your work and leisure time What are you passionate about Can you create a livelihood doing things you are passionate about See The 100 Startup for guidance on this Is there a way to bring passion into your work If you work with a team do you mutually appreciate and value the other players What might you do to contribute to the well being of co workers What needs to happen in order for you to have more fun at work to feel energized and yes playful Sometimes it is as simple as shifting your perspective and changing your attitude Work and play are words used to describe the same thing under differing conditions Mark Twain Filed Under Featured Finding Your Passion Tagged With appreciation attitude awareness balance job Passions play values work Finding Fulfilling Work is Like an Easter Egg Hunt April 6 2012 by Dee Relyea It is Easter weekend and I find myself remembering my children at 3 and 5 excitedly exploring the house for the colorful eggs and other goodies plastic wind up chicks jelly beans in pick plastic wrap and the like left by the elusive bunny I loved watching the kids dash from place to place excitedly shrieking with glee when they discovered an egg or foil wrapped treat The joy in their little faces at uncovering an unexpected goodie was truly a wondrous thing Once the more obvious eggs had been located the process evolved into a more serious hunt Although the kids would diligently follow our suggestions of where to look they were most proud and excited about the treasures they discovered on their own Finding fulfilling work is sort of like an Easter egg hunt First you look at the obvious what your education skills and training qualify you to do and hope there is a match in the current market When there isn t we need to look harder Consider How might your particular set of gifts experience and abilities benefit others What talents do you possess that the world needs Who needs your talents This applies whether you are seeking employment or considering starting a business We often fail to recognize that our gifts things that come easily to us can be marketable skills Do you have a green thumb with plants Are you creative in the kitchen Do you tinker with cars or bikes on the weekends Are you a movie buff that enjoys critiquing films How might your interests where your talents are often demonstrated be applicable to the workplace What are your transferable non occupational specific skills I challenge you to look beyond your work history your education and your stated qualifications Find those less obvious eggs and put them into your basket err search for fulfilling work Filed Under Featured Finding Your Passion Tagged With employment gifts talents work Let Your Passion Fuel Your Work March 1 2012 by Dee Relyea When you enjoy the nature of your work your potential for true career fulfillment skyrockets positioning you for greater success In reality many people are not in work they love but in jobs that they need simply to pay the bills They diligently move through their work week doing what needs to be done to meet the required performance standard You know the scenario hanging onto a job even when you are burned out or yearn to be spending your precious hours focused in another direction You slog through your days and gaze eagerly at your weekends so that you can do the stuff you are passionate about The question is do you even have enough energy at the end of your day your week your long stint without a vacation to really enjoy your time off when you have it Can you keep working the day job week after week month after

Relyea Holidays aren t always Jolly days There are more errands to run tasks to do lists to make and follow through We get stressed out trying to get it all done so that we can actually enjoy the season Then there are the social gatherings some mandatory and not always pleasant Sometimes it s our own family interactions that put a damper on our best intentions to have a Happy Holiday How can you shift this scenario and bring the Happy back into the holidays Try being your Best Self Carolyn Hax a columnist for the Washington Post was recently asked how to define Best Self Here is how she answered that question in her column of Dec 13th It s when you like yourself Or when you re getting the most out of your strengths and succumbing the least to your weaknesses It s highly personal but here are some ideas for cultivating strength Are you doing things that are meaningful to you well suited to your interests skills and talents and challenging enough to keep you humble This is also the key to joy in your chosen work Are you with people to whom you want to be kind who reinforce your good choices and who don t inspire persistent doubts about whether they re dependable genuinely fond of you free of ulterior motives honest with you Are you that person to those you love When you are impressed by grateful or concerned about someone do you show it Do you take responsibility for your choices and their consequences This is hard for many but if you can consistently operate this way you will stop blaming others external circumstances for your life as it is you stop being or feeling like a victim and instead begin feeling and being empowered Don Miguel Ruiz says in his book The Four Agreements Be impeccable with your word and Always do your best Similarly Hax asks the reader Do you honor your promises and commitments to yourself and others and Are you representing yourself honestly to yourself and others How about dealing with your weaknesses so that you can be your best self Here are some of the questions Carolyn asks her readers to consider Do you resist the impulse to blame others when things go wrong Do you understand the boundary between you and others business and stay on your side When you re unsure do you admit that and seek help When you re about to express negativity or a criticism do you ask yourself whether it needs expressing And imagine how its target will feel I challenge you to consider these questions and be honest with yourself in your answers This doesn t mean berating yourself or wallowing in regret Forgiveness is a powerful activator for positive change Forgive yourself and others for not being their best selves and move on In every moment we can choose to be our best self and by doing so we become more mindful and sometimes even

back and visit me while he was on a vacation in Madison He wanted to share his joy of a new baby and his appreciation for the role I played in helping both he and his wife land wonderful jobs in St Louis Rob was working as an organizer for a labor union when we met He really enjoyed his role in educating union leadership researching and writing content for the website building and managing social media and creating training and marketing materials What he didn t like so much was the constant travel and long hours In 2011 Rob s position required his involvement in demonstrations regarding the governor s Budget Repair Bill which impacted collective bargaining agreements After 5 months of being embroiled in the protests Rob was ready for a change of pace He has a high value for harmony and strives to build community and collaboration wherever he goes Spending Feb June with crowds of frustrated angry people was both exhausting and disheartening for him He decided it was time to update his resume and begin looking for a new job preferably in St Louis Missouri He attended both of my mini courses Rock Your Resume and Ignite Your Interview and had hired me to help him find a new position We went through the process of identifying what work tasks he did best and enjoyed most and emphasized those on his resume his Linked In profile and in his correspondence with potential employers Next I asked Rob to write out what his dream job would be Rob s ideal work needed to offer innovation autonomy collaboration research writing teaching training advocating and community building One of the things we worked on was structuring questions he could ask in interviews to help him learn more about the work culture and management style to determine if the jobs he was applying for might be a fit to his ideal work It took a few months of networking and using Linked In contacts conducting informational interviews and searching job listings in all the higher ed institutions in the St Louis area but Rob found a great job as did his wife This month he is celebrating two years being in a job he loves in one of Missouri s prestigious universities His work not only combines his education and experience but it is in alignment with his core values and fits his lifestyle enabling him to spend more time with his growing family Rob s wife Laura also attended the Rock your Resume class and was the first one to obtain work in the St Louis area She is very happy in her job in higher education and will soon be starting classes towards a masters degree If you are unhappy in the work you re in consider a change It is possible to have fulfilling satisfying purposeful work Whether you do it with a coach a book or a friend please explore your possibilities for a brighter more

Listen to your inner voice I had a birthday this week and got to thinking about how quickly the years go by It saddens me how many people slog though endless days working at jobs they don t like What stops them from leaving an employer or an occupation they don t find satisfying Why do they grit their teeth and continue to go to a job that drains their energy and robs them of precious hours they could be using in pursuit of more joyous work I ve been re visiting some to the books in my career coaching collection and in How to Find the Work You Love I discovered something I thought important to share The author Laurence Boldt suggests that what stops us from pursuing a calling or finding our life s work are the Voices of Doubt Here is how he defines these inner voices The voice of doom and gloom You might identify this for yourself when your mind starts up about fears of financial ruin Are you really going to become a bag lady if you quit your job Is it really riskier to ignore your creative urges and stay in work that pays the bills but sucks your precious life force As George Bernard Shaw put it If you are going to let the fear of poverty govern your life your reward will be that you will earn but you will not live I think sometimes we just have to feel the fear and move forward anyway You never know what opportunities may come your way once you start moving towards your ideal career The voice of conformity Evidence of this voice occurs when you start worrying about others opinions of you For example when I decided to launch my home based business 10 years ago I got some negative response from people You ll never be successful don t you know most small businesses fail in the first couple of years You have no business in being in business You don t understand the principles Go get a steady job and get a regular paycheck like everybody else If I had succumbed to those opinions I would have missed out on years of fulfilling heart engaging and energizing work Just reading these old voices of conformity brings my energy down Don t let the naysayers undermine your intentions to follow your heart Trust your inner wisdom and go blaze a new trail You don t have to do a certain job you can choose differently The voice of self diminishment This one is insidious and can derail your best intentions These are the messages we tell ourselves about not being enough You fill in the blank Don t put off following your passions because you think you have to get more training practice organized money or whatever you feel is missing This doesn t mean that you don t do any preparation to realize your life s work it does mean you stop trying to talk yourself out of it because you are feeling inadequate Do some research and find out the truth For instance do you really have to have a degree in business to start one No you don t The voice of idle complaint Another name for this voice could be the whine and procrastinate process We all know people who seem to enjoy complaining You know the ones that love to share how awful their work life relations situation whatever is Please don t do that to yourself Evidence of the voice of idle complaint appears when we procrastinate When we turn a deaf ear to the voice of our inner wisdom and come up with excuses to ignore it For example you might say to yourself or others I will make a career change when I have enough money my husband wife finishes school when my kids go off to college when I get fired or laid off when XYZ occurs We wait for some external circumstances to change in order for us to take action to create our own future Write down a few actions you can realistically take towards making your dreams for fulfilling work come true and then do them I am not suggesting anyone act irresponsibly and just assume if you leap off a cliff your wings will appear but I am encouraging you to really examine your reasons for staying in a job or work situation in which you are truly unhappy Your time is limited so don t waste living someone else s life Don t be trapped by the dogma which is living the results of other people s thinking Don t let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice And most important have the courage to follow your heart and own intuition They somehow already know what you truly want to become Steve Jobs Steve got it right He certainly

Skills and Talents and Find Your Ideal Career June 11 2013 by Dee Relyea Are you thinking it is time to get a different job or shift careers The first step is to identify your package of skills talents and natural abilities We all have abilities life experience knowledge talents passions creativity yearnings interests and skills within I imagine them as being different shapes sizes and colors kind of like this picture I took of Dale Chihuly glass I find clients often assume that they are stuck in the same type job because that is all they have done in the past If we look beyond the job description and instead look within ourselves we can discover a wellspring of transferable skills and hidden talents that can help qualify us for a variety of potentially satisfying jobs Let me give you an example Scott had been a master electrician for 15 years He climbed up ladders and crawled through ducts while wiring commercial buildings At 35 he was finding the physical demands becoming challenging and decided to explore a career change When I asked him what he liked best about being an electrician he responded it is really satisfying to wire an entire system and then bring a building to life with the flip of a switch We began exploring how this could relate to other kinds of careers You see if you start with what you really most enjoy about your work and look at where you can do something similar in a different environment some times the ideal career reveals itself After identifying his transferable skills and natural gifts Scott decided to become a chiropractor He compared the work of being a chiropractor to his career as an electrician In both cases he said you are working with the electrical system In the human body it is the nervous system but my role is the same Determine where the electricity is failing to connect and fix it He went on further to say instead of working in a building with ducts and blowers to move the air and maintain the temperature and electrical wiring to circulate the juice I work on the human body it too has respiratory circulatory and electrical systems Today Scott has a thriving practice in Landrum SC and says he just loves his work He s good at it too I often see him when I am visiting there You never know what new wonderful career may be just around the corner Identifying your own skills and talents is the first step in exploring other kinds of work Need a nudge to start looking at your own Here is a list of Transferable Skills for you to select from After you identify the skills you possess review the list and note those that you really enjoy doing Then mention those in correspondence with potential employers emphasize them on your resume describe them in interviews or launch a business built on them YOU have a unique package of skills talents and abilities Why not use them and live the work you love Filed Under Career Transition Featured Tagged With career change creativity job Passions skills talents work How to Have More Mindful Moments May 14 2013 by Dee Relyea Last week I facilitated two workshops on mindfulness for employees of John Deere Financial I was struck by how earnestly engaged the participants were in the process It was like they were hungry to explore mindfulness What a gift it is to give ourselves time out to allow our busy brains to re focus on the present moment as we did during those workshops For the most part we move through our days on autopilot Scientists tell us that the average human brain thinks 70 000 thoughts a day Now if those were all empowering positive thoughts imagine how different our lives might be Unfortunately we humans tend to ruminate on the past and imagine and plan for the future We also tend to get in loops of repeating memories or patterns of thinking Consider the times you have re played a situation in your head and thought about what you could have should have or would have done differently if given a chance to do it over The nice thing about using mindfulness techniques is that every time you awake to the present moment you have the opportunity to consciously choose how to move forward to the next one When you consider career paths choosing wisely can make all the difference in whether you experience a job that is boring or stressful vs having work that is interesting and enjoyable The more consciously aware we are the more control we have over the course of our lives Instead of being at the mercy of our mental default programs we can start to wake up to

  • SoulCollage® — Career Life Coaching
    to SoulCollage is the powerful effect of self inquiry questions that reveal what your card means I find it is most helpful to experience this process with others One person asks the questions and records the answers for the card maker The recorder then reads back what the card maker said It is amazing what can come out of you Additionally you may want to journal about your card s What was your experience in identifying with the image What thoughts or memories did this process elicit Magic in the Air She Who Leads the Parade What makes SoulCollage different from other collage processes Usually people make a big collage representing several things all one large sheet of paper like a Dream or Vision Board In SoulCollage you work with just one energy or theme per card Additionally SoulCollage is comprised of 4 suits Council represents archetypes or universal principles which seem to be influencing our lives Examples might be Strength Love Faith the Great Mother Father the Guardian Protector Transformation the Destroyer the Magician Happy Child the Hermit or Serenity as pictured above Committee represents the inner parts of you or multiple facets of your personality like my card pictured below the Photog which features a few of my favorite shots Community represents the people and pets and even places that inspire love or support you They may be present in your life today or in your past such as ancestors or teachers For example my Fur Friends card pictured above right is about the joy and companionship I had with past pets Companion represents your physical energies as in the Chakra system or animal guides or totems the Photog Committee suit Card Readings Beyond the enjoyment of card making you can also use your deck to do a reading It s you own personal guidance system There is no limit to how many cards you can make and each is a perspective of your personality or an aspect of you Ask a question and pull one or more cards To read them you take on the role of each of the cards you ve picked and answer from its point of view The key is to just allow your intuition and imagination to give a voice to your images Where did SoulCollage come from It began with Seena Frost a psychotherapist She attended a three year training with Jean Houston and at the end she made cards for the other participants Those cards became the Community suit Since 2001 Seena Frost s work has ignited a worldwide interest in SoulCollage and has evolved into an international community of facilitators and SoulCollagers enjoying and sharing this simple yet profound process There are now over 1 500 trained SoulCollage Facilitators in 28 countries and 12 Trainers who travel internationally You can find out more about SoulCollage available workshops and facilitators in your area by going to SoulCollage com If you are in the Madison WI area I d love to
