In pursuit of a dream job (inspired by Chris Guillebeau's Born for This), I took a leap of faith and left a good position with a fine employer to search for opportunities more closely aligned with my passions and interest. #1goal: to find happiness in my career and bring my best self to work each day. Knowing that I could not go it along on this frightening journey, thankfully I found Mary Kozik, executive coach extraordinaire. Over a period of three months, Mary and I dove deep to identify my personal values and the characteristics of a job and work environment most important to me. Exploring what could surely bring happiness personally and professionally, she led the way with useful tools to unlock "the answers inside waiting to be found." Mary's approach is second to none. She is strategic, thoughtful, and encouraging, with just the right amount of followup between appointments to keep me on task. Most importantly by doing the difficult work of self exploration and trusting Mary and the process, I found clarity and landed a fantastic position! If you are seeking job nirvana with the help of an enthusiastic and empowering expert, I highly recommend Mary. She's the best!
