What People Are Saying

Working with Cheryl last year was one of the best experiences in a long time of pursuing my professional development. She was able to help me define my visions, focus my efforts, and guide me towards an efficient and successful job search. Even though she has not worked in my field, she provided me with plenty of tailored resources and taught me how to use social media tools for professional networking and growth. Even after finding a new job I continue to work with her on my career development goals, because she thinks out of the box and gives advice that consistently brings me closer to the 5-year goal that she helped me formulate. Cheryl always appears to be one step ahead of your thought process and is extremely talented at asking the necessary questions so you can reach your own conclusions as to what seems best for you. She is motivating, supportive, optimistic yet realistic, and one of the most positive forces you can have on your side while trying to reach the next goal.”

Susanne Ebling

Cheryl has been a pleasure to work with and she gets results. I found a new position, in a tough economic environment, through LinkedIn using the strategies that Cheryl taught me. I was in the job market actively looking for over six months. I was not using social media before the pilot program with Cheryl and was having very limited success. Once I started using social media based under Cheryl's direction, my success rate improved dramatically and the number of interviews increased resulting in multiple job offers. I highly recommend Cheryl as a career coach.

“I had been struggling with the umptenth rewrite of my resume for weeks, unable to get it to speak out for me. Then a mutual friend recommended Cheryl. I didn't call her right away since I stubbornly insisted to myself that I could do it without help. Finally, I realized that I needed a new set of eyes and some new thinking. Cheryl's response knocked me over. In a few short days I had a powerful resume that is exactly what I was looking for as well as a cover letter that I can easily customize. Cheryl delivers!

Richard Floyd

Cheryl wrote my resume, and after weeks of sending out my old resume and getting no phone calls, as soon as I got the first draft I sent it to a few job listings and was 5 for 6 in return phone calls- yes 5 for 6!!!..after no responses in the first 2 weeks; Cheryl's work made that much of a difference!! I know anyone looking to move on from where they are working and needs that GREAT resume should contact Cheryl immediately.”

Perhaps you have dreamed of turning your passion into a full-time career.  Whether it is singing, knitting, sewing, or fishing, maybe you have secretly thought that if you could do this all of the time, your life would be wonderful.

But how can you really make it happen?

Here are some critical questions that you should ask yourself before proceeding with turning your passion into a career:

1) Is your passion a viable career?

In some cases, there aren’t any real opportunities to make your passion a real career. Even though you may enjoy doing it, there may not be a market for what you want to do. Your passion may be part of a dying industry, like photofinishing for example. According to Business Insider, this industry is expected to see revenue fall 9.9% per year over the next five years. This is not a career that would be sustainable over the long term.

2) Will you be able to sustain yourself with this type of work?

This point is related to the one above. If you try to go into a dying industry, you will not be able to sustain yourself financially. There must be a thriving market for what you want to do.

3) Can you find work in this field in the geographic location where you live?

Some types of work are only located in certain geographic locations. Skiing and oil drilling immediately come to mind. If you are in a position to relocate and want to relocate, then this will not be an issue for you. But if you have obligations where you are, and you are not mobile, then trying to pursue your passion full time will not be a realistic option.

4) Would you still be passionate about this type of work if you had to do it full time?

Some people love certain types of work, but that is only because it is something that they can do at their leisure. Having to do it for pay and having to satisfy clients can take the luster off something that you would otherwise be passionate about. For example, if you love music, would you still love it if you had to live or die by the reviews? Would you be willing to do what it takes to live your dream, given the fact that the music industry is one of the most competitive of all industries?

These are some heart searching questions that you must ask yourself before you can make the best decision as to whether or not you are willing to pay the price to turn your passion into a career.
