As you reach out and hit the snooze button, the thought of another day at work almost makes you vomit.
The feeling of dread washes over you.

Yes, another day begins.

Another day in that soul-sucking boring place you call work. 

“I hate my job”, you mumble as you pull the covers back over your head.

Day after day, month after month, year after year, the same routine, the same grievances, the same people, the same slow passage of time until you can finish work and go home.

Then you get to do it all again tomorrow.

“I hate my job,” you say under your breath as you collect your things and leave the workplace.

It’s a cycle that chips away at your spirit. Eats away at your very soul. Creates hatred, anger, mental health issues, alcoholism, family issues and just plain brain-dead zombies.

Angry man at desk"I hate my job", creates anger, mental health issues, alcoholism, family issues and many other issues.

You know I’m right. You have seen them. 

Look around you at work. 

See the folks who have succumbed. 

Those guys that have given up. 

The ones that have been there for years. 

Do you want to end up like them?

It doesn’t have to be this way? I would like to help you.

Here’s The Staggering Truth

53% of American workers are just like you, dragging their feet to jobs they despise? 

That’s more than half of the workforce of the USA! 

Why be a stat? 

Why be part of a statistic that only highlights and brings misery?

Acceptance Is Never The Answer!

You could numb the pain at a bar, turn your frustrations into physical exertion at the gym, or zone out in front of the TV. 

Let’s be real—none of these will change your tomorrow. 

It’s a band-aid over a gaping wound. 

Are you willing to settle for this?

You are better than this.

Break Free. 
There are so many pathways to choose

woman on a lit pathThe path forward must start with you.

My Experience, Your Strength

Before I take you there, it is fair to know why you should listen to me and what I have to say. 

I’ve walked in your shoes. I’ve transformed my path from “I hate my job” to happiness. If you need warts and all details, hit the link here to the “About Me” page.

I retired in 2005 after 35 years of running my business. Since then, I’ve devoted most of my time to mentoring, coaching, guiding and changing ‘hate your job’ into ‘love your job’.

I help people like you, move from loathing to loving their job.

Through this site, I’m spilling every experience that led me to a business and a life I loved and now I’m giving back. I’m passing it on.

I’m bringing hope to thousands, that, when asked “How’s the job?” The response is the same way every time, “I hate my job”.

I want you to convert to “I love my job”.

happy man at deskThere is a change in everything when you go from hating your job to loving your job.

I genuinely want  to help you

Help and guide you to love what you do.

As someone who once stood exactly where you are, and transformed that despair into a thriving new direction, I’m here to share my insights and steer you towards the light. 

This isn’t about lofty promises. This is about practical steps to reshape your life.

Today Marks the Beginning

Here are some things I can help to make a difference in your life.

Rethinking Your Future

Leaving a job you hate can be scary, but think about the alternative. 

Put it in perspective, nothing will change if you keep doing what you are doing.

Why would you want to do that?

You are dead a long time my friend. 

This is not a rehearsal. 

You only get one shot at life.

So flick despair and misery for joy and life fulfilment.

Change your job

Consider a job that aligns with your passions or starts a side hustle. 

Conventional paths aren’t the only ones.

Start Your Own Business

Many have gone down the startup path. This is not for everyone. But it is the most exciting and fulfilling. Knowing you are building an asset. Creating a pathway for the next generation if they are inclined. 

Being your own boss is most satisfying.

Making decisions and controlling your destiny, well, you work it out. 

Revamp your skills

Learn a new skill. Enroll in a course. Your current skills got you here, but new ones will get you further.

Mindset Matters

Change your attitude. Shift how you view work. Sometimes this is all it takes to see things differently.

It’s Not About The Money

I know that is a glib statement, but it is true. I have seen many people change their direction and earn less money. 

Initially, it is a daunting prospect, but it’s not always about the money. 

What price is happiness, joy and fulfilment?

What is the price of contentment?

The money will come

I have said it hundreds of times. 

The money will come. 

Most people put the cart before the horse. 

Get the system and processes right first. 

Get yourself in the best position for you. 

The money will take care of itself. 

Amazing things happen, and opportunities appear when you are doing what you love.

What do you love to do?

This is the $64 question. 

Maybe this is the hardest thing to discover. 

Some know instantly, others I have to take them through a process.

Not everything is set in concrete. 

Remain flexible. 

I will teach you how to achieve this.

From Loathing to Loving Your Journey Is My Mission

This is what I love to do. I love helping people find their ‘north star’. This is what makes me happy. It’s what I do. 

I love what I do.

I stumbled on a chance meeting with my mentor, coach, trainer, or whatever you want to call it many years ago. He instilled in me how why and when I should do specific actions. 

It all worked. 

Did I have setbacks and failures? 

You bet I did, as will you. 

The clever thing is knowing how to cope with them. My mentor was there for me when those moments occurred. 

As will I be there for you.

My dream is to see some of you guys take my processes and teachings into the next generation and the next. If I can help 100 people in similar positions to you and you each mentor 100 people, well you do the math.

I’ve gone on long enough. If you have read this far, you need to get on board.
