Overview

This book is about how to find a meaningful and fulfilling career – the career you were meant to have.

You will discover the 45 TRUTHS of how and why people really choose their life’s work and how they achieve true joy for themselves and others.

This book was written for all those who are either out of work, changing careers (like those leaving the US Military), are stuck in a job they hate, or are just starting out in the world of work and trying to find their true career.

There’s nothing more stressful than trying to support yourself and your family in a minimum wage job, working two jobs just to pay the bills. I’ve been there!

It’s a scary time!

If you’re like most people, you have what I call a JOB (Just-Over-Broke). Here you’re just trading time for money – just to make it through the month, and doing the same thing next month.

Without a career you’ll most certainly experience;

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

Is this really what you want?

How much longer will you continue your insane behavior; doing the same thing over and over again, while expecting a different result? There has to be a better way! Well there is and it’s time for a change – this is why I wrote this book. I can help you find the career you were meant to have!

One of my clients said it best when he wrote,

“Thanks to Ed, I learned the secrets of running a successful job search and in only two weeks I found my career position. I actually had two offers from which to choose and was able to leverage that situation into a 10% raise plus a bonus, all before I ever worked a day. Thanks doesn’t seem enough.” – William S., San Diego, CA

I bring over 20 years of experience as an Executive Career Coach, helping thousands of people, from recent college graduates to CEO’s, find meaningful employment. I worked for four of the largest outplacement and e-cruiting companies in America in Seattle, San Diego, and Kansas City.

It was here that I learned how help my clients find their TRUE Careers – the career they were meant to have.
In this guide, you’ll learn, step-by-step;

The real benefits of having a career
The most important thing to every employer on the planet
The real definition of a TRUE Career
The things in life you really control and can therefore change
The 45 TRUTHS to finding your TRUE Career (How and why people choose their life’s work and how they achieve true joy for themselves and others)
How to explore different careers and what to look for

Having a career brings these benefits;

Become absolutely essential to any organization
Happiness, self-esteem and prosperity
Personal fulfillment, making a difference
Work and life balance
Goal achievement and financial stability
Peace of mind concerning your career
Never having to worry about being a burden on your family
Better live a blessed life, exercising stewardship over your time and choices

Everything in this guide has come from my personal struggles finding employment and the struggles of my clients. I’ve personally used everything in this book. They worked for me, they worked for my clients, and I know they’ll work for you!

If you (or someone you care about) are either out of work, changing careers (like leaving the military), struggling in a dead-end job with no future, or just starting out in the world of work, this is your chance to turn things around by give yourself a competitive advantage. If you want the benefits of having a meaningful and fulfilling career, this is the guide for you!

I believe that winning is a choice. Choose to win! Because I know you were born for greatness!

Enjoy!

Ed

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.
