About Define Your Career
The best way to tell you about define your career is to tell you about my mission.
Define Your Career is dedicated to manifesting your career destiny and eliminating underemployment. With a recent study from Gallup Organization The State of the American Work Place showing 70% of Americans don’t like their jobs, and are not fully engaged, this is a large workplace issue:
“Gallup finds that (of approximately 100 million holding full time jobs) the 30 million engaged
employees in the U.S. come up with most of the innovative ideas, create most of a company’s
new customers, and have the most entrepreneurial energy.”
You want to be one of the engaged ones. To thrive – not just survive. With our career plan
blueprint and dedication to your breakthrough, you can.

What’s our secret?
Simple. The Define Your Career assessment process is a career plan blueprint that takes
proven business marketing strategies that successful businesses use. It applies those
strategies to help you assess the ideal employment or business venture that works for you as
Successful businesses know what value they best bring to market, and know how to message
that value to generate business. You will understand how to harness that same power for
yourself as an individual.
So instead of being a commodity, just another employee looking for just another job, you are a
branded superstar that knows what your greatest marketable value is. You’re someone who
knows where they fit and knows where they are going. So the hiring process is near effortless
and in fact will magnetically attract you. This means:
- No competition – you will find career and business opportunities no one else can
- Lifetime job security – because you create a solution that is unique to just you – you
create a lifetime employment path that no one can ever take from you or fire you from
- Career satisfaction – because you are working with the right community and right
audience, you are happiest and most productive
- Certainty in your career decisions – if you are deciding if being an entrepreneur is right
for you, or if you should invest in continuing education, or even move to a new city, this
process vets your decision

You simply slide down a funnel of 10 career self-assessment exercises that reveal what career
or business is optimal for you, in less time than it takes to watch your favorite movie.
