Doing Work of the Heart

Meaningful work is one of life’s greatest pleasures.

Over the years, I have coached clients and friends as they moved from business to business, from full-time to part-time work (and vice versa,) or to completely new careers. All in search of fulfilling, rewarding work that makes a difference.

I’ve been lucky to experience several careers myself. I worked professionally as a college professor, a high school teacher, in direct sales, as a business executive, and as a small business owner. Looking back, it is amazing to see how all these experiences prepared me for the next — even when the path wasn’t immediately evident.

I’ve also learned that how we live our life away from work influences who are in our career. Over the last couple of years, I worked (and sometimes struggled,) to put together the important pieces of my life so I could be my best in all things. I learned to cook healthy food, became disciplined in my yoga practice, found a new church, focused on my family, learned to paint (well, kind of), and made more time for friends.

One of the most rewarding experiences has been volunteering for our local Hospice. Over the last two years I made phone calls to bereaved families, provided respite care for patients, worked in the office and helped with special events. Like Hospices across the nation, I found that our organization is one made up of extraordinary people doing extraordinary things. I wondered if there might ever be the opportunity to work alongside these people professionally.

Recently, a position was posted in the Volunteer Department at our Hospice. The job description listed skills and tasks that perfectly fit my own experience.

I got the job.

What I know with utter certainty is that this is what I am meant to do.

What I also know is that saying goodbye is never easy. Sherra is an amazing business partner. Our business, Big Picture Coaching, sprang from her vision. I will be forever grateful to her, and to each of you.

Thank you for your time.  For reading our blog, working with us on the phone, corresponding by email, and for always striving to be the best in your own business. I admire each of you as small business owners and as great people.

As I leave this phase of my career, I ask you the same questions I have asked myself over the years: 

  • Where are you in your career?
  • Are you doing work that counts?
  • Are you leading a life that makes you better in all things?
  • What is your next step?

If you need help finding the answers, get in touch with Sherra! As she continues the work of Big Picture Coaching, I promise she will help you discover your heart work.

I wish you the very best.
