A Call With Me: 10 Truths to Unlocking Your Career Purpose

If you were to look at the path my career took to get to this point as if it were a trail on a roadmap, it would be filled with bumps, spikes, dips, stark left turns and reroutes.

There is no possible way when starting out, I could have predicted the course I would ultimately take. Of course in the beginning what I wanted out of my career looked very much like a straight path but the Universe had other plans for me.

What I Know For Sure About Uncertainty

I watched an episode of Super Soul Sunday (my guilty pleasure) this past weekend, with Barbara Taylor Brown, a religion professor at Piedmont College.

I decided the to-do list would have to wait.
