In this episode, I’m on a mission to open your eyes to new possibilities.
What do you really want from your life?
And how can you reimagine your next career move to help you fulfill it?
If you’re feeling stuck in a job you hate, were just laid off or fired, just graduated, or you have no idea what you want to do with your life, this episode is my gift to you.
I wanted to do something to help you gain the clarity and courage that you need to make a big change when you’re feeling uncertain.
So I’ve arranged for you to meet with one of the best experts on the planet for a zero cost masterclass and coaching session on getting clear on your next career move, Amy Porterfield.
Her new book, Two Weeks Notice, is the playbook for how you build a successful side hustle or business with zero prior experience.
Amy’s taught more than 50,000 people just like you how to go from dreading their job to designing the life and work they’ve dreamed about.
Today Amy is coaching you, and when you’re done listening to our conversation, you’ll not only be inspired, but you’ll also have the tactical next steps to take.
And, if you’ve ever quietly dreamt of having your own business, my mission today is to pour gasoline on that fire.
After you listen, you’ll think differently about what you’re capable of, and you’ll get a taste of what COULD be.
I always say you are one decision away from the rest of your life.
If you’re ready to design a life you love waking up to, we’re about to teach you how.
