How Jessica turned her business administration degree into a gourmet food career
Many college graduates are faced with a job market that simply do not have a job in their chosen career field. A college graduate in St Louis area named Jessica faced this same problem. Her college degree in business administration opened up a few corporate management opportunities in the 2018 job market. She was very frustrated, and her friends were having the same problems.
Jessica ordered my Career Destiny Fast Track program which included three coaching consults. During our second consult, we played a little game called “mix and match” that I had learned from Fredric Lehrman’s program called Prosperity Consciousness.
Mixing and Matching her Career Destiny
We took the self-assessment exercises she had done in Define Your Career, and listed her talents, what community she enjoyed, and other lists and wrote each one on a sticky note. Jessica then put them all in a jar and shook it up. She then picked two slips at a time, to generate a list of paired words. Music and ice cream was one pair. Didn’t see what she could do with that one. Then Gourmet Food and Sales were paired, and the light bulb in her mind lit up. She excitedly began to form a business plan in her mind right then and there. Four months later, she emailed me to tell me “I’m generating almost $600 a week in profit from this business venture out of my parent’s home and I’m planning to build a website to grow it even larger!”
Jessica’s case study success story reveals how you never know what career you will define – or how – till you go through the process and give it a creative try. She defined her talents, and the other three factors of an optimal career, and used them as the raw material to build a path to her optimal business, gourmet food.
A career change success story
Brandon was a partner in a successful construction business in Georgia but wasn’t enjoying himself in the rat race of the declining Atlanta area real estate development industry. He was also in the process of finalizing a divorce and just really needed a change.
He was at a point where he had was financially able to try something new without starving. After going through the 5 factors of an optimal career, and defining his career destiny, he then set up his career goals in the Career Destiny Fast program.
After the goals process, he determined Real Estate was still a business he loved. He also discovered his optimal community was in tropical weather. He developed goals to enjoy the Real estate business but in a tropical climate.
Brandon Discovers his Possibilities
He researched his possibilities and is now successful – again – in Costa Rica in Real Estate sales in less than a year. He just emailed me to thank me “Thanks for helping me clarify and set goals, Larry. Not only am I loving it in Costa Rica, I met a lovely lady and am now happily engaged and planning on a new family.” Brandon’s case study reveals what I see often: you are sure about two or three of the 5 factors of an optimal career, and just need to identify and focus on the one factor that you have a blind spot in, to make your breakthrough.
