Overview

This book is about how to enhance the career you already have. It was written for those who already chosen a career field, but are struggling trying to build a more meaningful and fulfilling career.
From Volume 3, FINDING YOUR PATH: How to find the career you were meant to have, you discovered the 44 TRUTHS of how and why people really choose their life’s work and how they achieve true joy for themselves and others.
We are all put here on this earth for a reason. I believe that reason is to add value to the lives of others - in some meaningful way.
Most people wander through life, going from one job to another, just trading time for money. Worse yet, most people either hate their job, see no future potential for themselves, or are complacent about their career. It does not have to be that way. If this is you, then this book can help you!
Unfortunately, most of us learn this by either trial and error, or by just letting fate answer the question. And, some of us never find the answer.
I know it’s possible to experience enjoyment in your work, because I have found it. I have helped thousands of people find the careers they were meant to have over the past 20+ years as an Executive Coach in Seattle, San Diego, and Kansas City.
It was here that I learned 40+ SECRETS to finding and building your TRUE career; the career you were meant to have, the one that matters, makes a difference for others, and makes you feel needed, fulfilled, and alive.
This is why I wrote this book; to help more people than I had been, coaching one person at a time, to find and build the career they were meant to have.
I titled this book Building Your Path because I’ve helped thousands of people navigate their way through the maze of possibilities to find and build the career they were meant to have; their TRUE career.
The purpose of this book is to tell the truth about building your career. You will find no theory or hype here. Every small and simple thing found in this book, I have personally used and I know it works.
In this book you’ll learn, step-by-step;
What is most important to every employer
Where your career is right now
Where you want your career to be long term
How to create career goals that are SMART and Personalized
How to create a good goal Plan of Action (POA)
How to achieve your career goals?
What are the benefits of having a career rather than just a job?
Become absolutely essential to any organization
Happiness, self-esteem and prosperity
Work and life balance, and financial stability
Goal achievement and personal fulfillment
Peace of mind concerning your career
Never having to be a burden on your family
Help you to stand out from the rest
Better live a blessed life, exercising stewardship over your time and choices
What if I don’t have a career?
For those of you without a career, who have what I call a J.O.B. (for Just Over Broke), are trading time for money just to pay the bills, here is what you can look forward too.
Failure to develop all your talents
Reduced total income over your lifetime
Reduced retirement assets
Reduced ability to contribute to others
Failure to achieve your true potential
Reduced opportunities for family members
Greater chance of being a “burden” on your family
Constant worry about not having enough; running out of money before you die
All my life, I have been the recipient and practitioner of tough love coaching and you will see it in my writing. I do this to get your attention and to hopefully spur you to action.
So leave your ego and your emotions at home, because I am about to give you the unvarnished, un-sugar coated truth behind creating and strengthening your career. And, in most cases, it will be just the opposite of what you think you know about the subject.
Stop wishing you had a better career and do something about it. Put an Executive Coach on your Team TODAY!

Meet the Author

I was lucky! From age 7, I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wanted to be a Soldier.

In 1964, four days after graduating from High School, I joined the US Army and found myself in Basic Training and Advanced Infantry Training at Fort Dix, New Jersey.

A year later, I became a Cadet at the United States Military Academy at West Point. In 1970, I graduated as a 2d Lieutenant headed to Airborne and Ranger School, then off to Viet Nam for a year.

In 1978, I returned to West Point to teach Military Science and earned my Master’s Degree from Long Island University in night school.

My greatest achievement during my time in the military was helping 1400-soldiers begin their college education during my last two years in Germany as a Battalion Commander. I wanted to give my soldiers something of real value - something that no one could ever take away.

After 24 years as a US Army Officer, from Viet Nam to Desert Storm, I retired in 1992. I then decided, with a little help from Anthony Robbins, that my second career would be as an Executive Coach. For the next 20 years, while working for four of the largest outplacement and e-cruiting companies in America from Seattle, San Diego, to Kansas City, I helped hundreds of people, from recent college graduates to CEO’s, find meaningful careers.

In 2011, I retired a second time and decided to document everything I learned from all those I willingly followed over the past 50+ years, in both the US Military (as a US Army Officer) and in Corporate America (as an Executive Coach), before their lessons were lost forever. I wanted to pay tribute to them because many of them aren’t here today to tell their stories.

My greatest joy comes from writing books that help others avoid or overcome the problems I’ve faced during my lifetime.

That same year, I created The Career Maker, a site dedicated to providing career advice to those who want to enhance their career by becoming absolutely essential to any employer, have just lost their job, are changing careers (like those leaving the US Military), or are stuck in a dead-end job just trading time for money.

Today, I’m privileged to live in Lee’s Summit, Missouri (near Kansas City), where I enjoy writing, eating sushi, and watching movies with family, friends and my best friend - my wife, Diana. When I count my blessings, I always count her twice.
