How has COVID impacted your career? Some of us were lucky enough to hang onto our jobs and continue on the same path. But some of us found ourselves violently placed in unfamiliar territory.

When Karen reached out for help, she had just lost her job after 32 years at the same company. She felt scared, lost, and alone - but she did the work and gained the clarity and confidence she needed to move forward in her job search.

On this episode of The Bridge to Fulfillment, Karen and Blake dig into the moment Karen began to realize that positive change and fulfillment was possible for her, the mindset shift from forging the path forward on her own to asking for support (plus all the tremendous ways that decision paid off), and the process of re-acquainting yourself with your goals, your priorities and your own incredible skills and value. Tune in for an inspiring story that might feel very familiar this year.

Favorite Quote

“I've learned that through this whole experience - be yourself and show your secret sauce. Because we all have something different to offer, we all have something that is different about us that will be huge to somebody out there; and you will find that right place, and I'm confident that I will find that right fit. I'm not afraid anymore. I'm not afraid to go out there and find what I need to find and find what I'm looking for, because it's there.”
