To make a successful career shift - and, really, to get anything you want in life - you need a good plan, flexibility and strong focus. It also takes persistence and fortitude to stay on task in spite of possible distractions and the “dead ends” or “set backs” which occasionally crop up along the way.
Using selected material from the “Go For It!” Module of their popular program, "The Career Finder Method," Jay Markunas and Angela Loëb help you get focused, set goals, keep your momentum and get results.
The purpose of this “Career Finder: How to Find the Right Career” course is to give some valuable tips while introducing a few of the concepts for a successful career change. For the more comprehensive course, please check out the complete Career Finder program, which comes with 3 hours of video, a 65-page guide and an online DISC assessment, at www.GreatOccupations.com .

From the help re-writing my resume, to the worksheets that helped me to understand my key competencies (very useful for competency-based interviews), to understanding the importance of networking and LinkedIn. Every piece of information and advice Angela gave me was incredibly helpful and definitely got me out of my job search rut.

Angela is the ultimate expert at what she does.” Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity – Jamelyn Hart, Austin, TX

A participant in one my classes once said, "Imagine if we lived in a world where even a small percentage of people started doing what they were born to do - wow what a world it would be!"
Yes! I agree!
I'm grateful and honored that my self-development programs and processes continue to serve so many all over the world. It's awesome to see that "small percentage" of engaged and excited people growing daily!
Basically, I'm really into self-development... learning it, teaching it, and supporting others who do too.
And I like results. While it's fun to talk about the esoteric side of things (and I really do love having such conversations!), it's even more fun to take action. What I do best is translate big, abstract concepts on how to make the most of ourselves and get where we want to go in life into easily understood and executable steps that work. All of my programs, as well as the books and articles I've written, reflect that passion.
After a 3-year hiatus, I'm back on Blog Talk Radio with my own show, Be Radiant Radio. Hope you'll find me there and tune in live or listen to the archived recordings at your leisure.
And please feel free to friend, follow, like, and link with me online at G+, Facebook, and Twitter.
Be well and shine on!
