You need a portable career-but want want a fulfilling one.
You can have both!


Where are you now?
Do you dread Mondays?
Do you want to develop a fulfilling career but don’t know how to get started?
Do you find yourself counting down hours until the weekend?
Are you feeling like your natural skills and abilities are undervalued and underused?
Do you want a job, but have no idea what you want to do?

 
Where do you want to be?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, take a moment to ask yourself:
What is keeping me from a fulfilling career?
What would finding a job that I truly love do for me?
What would finding a job that I truly love do for my family?
What is one thing I can do today to move one step closer to finding my fulfilling career?

 
The Importance of a Fulfilling Career
Research has shown that anxiety and discontent experienced by one family member can have negative effects on overall family dynamics. As most active-duty armed forces personnel are married, and nearly half have one or more children, it is important for each family member to feel supported and fulfilled. As military spouses, we often spend a great deal of time taking care of our family without taking time for ourselves. We can lose track of what motivates us, inspires us and refreshes us. As each day passes without time for reflection or a chance to recharge, we become accustomed to not taking time for ourselves. This repetition can become a routine as days turn into weeks or months, and sometimes even years before we realize that we have neglected to "fill ourselves full".


 
How to Find Your Fulfilling Career
What you may find meaningful and fulfilling in a career is often not the same as your best friend, your sibling or your spouse, making it important for us to resist the temptation of doing a job that others think we will be good at or following in our friends’ footsteps. Finding your fulfilling career means identifying your values, recognizing your natural abilities and embracing your passion. My role as a career coach is to assist you in discovering what these factors are, should you not already know them. There are many potential career paths for military spouses, and I can help you find one that matches who you are and what you enjoy.

Remember, a portable career does not have to come at the expense of a fulfilling one!
