Taking Your Career To The Second Act Exponentially   

​EVERY day TV shows, commercials, and movies are made. Actors study written scripts and "act" out characters that convince, persuade, influence or inspire the viewing audience of the authenticity of the role they are playing. Cue cards and teleprompter's are used for television host, news reporters, and audience members; and now add to that Reality TV, edited for drama and suspense. Keeping all this in mind, understand that written words are given to them to study, read, rehearse, and speak.

PERHAPS you can use some these same tools, tactics, and techniques in your career change, and be intentional about taking your career to the second act exponentially using these same methods. During this research project, I am making dynamic discoveries and ideas that may help you through the process. Perhaps these practical approaches will give you inspiration into "how to" proceed through the career transition.


Career test are usually one of the easiest ways to answer the question, "Where do I start"?

Think of your dreams and aspirations as you take the test.

Take the test without thinking about your previous work experience; choose answers based what you would "Love To Do?". The result of your responses will give a list of career interest and options. Explore and research your results for... Ideas, Insight, and Inspiration.
