Welcome: Let's get started
This site is designed to be a community for people who want upshift and uplift. As it relates to upshift, I like to think of it this way. You may not know exactly what the IT is, but you do know that you need to move UP from your current situation as it relates to your career life.
As an example:
- You may not know what you want to do in your career life.
- You may be working and want to advance to the next level, but feel stuck and unsure of how to do so.
- You may have reached a point in your career life where you have discovered you need to change directions.
We provide resources in the form of blogs, articles, podcasts and more to assist with all of those situations. Over time, you will find a more guide-tour based on your situation.
Naturally, your first question is probably, “where should I start?” We all know that the answer is, “it depends.” It truly does depend on your situation. However, let me highlight some of the resources on the website, allowing you to best gauge the best starting point based on where you are.
Where should you start
- Success on Your Own Terms Online Training: We offer a self-paced, online training program that sequentially guides you through critical steps, that build upon each other, to help you reach your success. From identifying your passion and purpose, clarifying direction, creating a support team, nailing your pitch and developing and executing a plan.
- Success On Your Own Terms – The 6 Promises: This is an abbreviated reading that helps you consider the process of identifying your passion and purpose, establishing goals, translating those goals into an action plan, creating a powerful network that will assist you in executing that plan, succeeding and then helping others do the same. Many complete these abbreviated readings and find hit the spot…again, depending on where you are. However, we also have full training available, complete with a 40-plus page workbook, that takes you step-by-step through each activity to help you get to success.
- Success Thought of the Day: I personally believe that everyone should sign up for this as I subscribe (no pun intended) to the notion that the first hour of the morning is the rudder for the day. Being intentional about starting your day with a boost of motivation is important. I invite you to visit that point, peruse it for yourself and if it feels right, then sign-up to receive it by email each morning.
- Podcasts: Acknowledging the three examples noted above, our podcasts are designed to empower you through awareness and actionable insights. As a platform for learning, I interview practitioners and experts with a focus on three key topics: leadership and personal development, entrepreneurship, and social justice (with an emphasis on education).
