How To Find And Do Work You Love

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

This is a very inspirational talk with Scott Dinsmore.

Scott Dinsmore’s mission is to change the world by helping people find what excites them and build a career around the work only they are capable of doing. He is a career change strategist whose demoralizing experience at a Fortune 500 job launched his quest to understand why 80% of adults hate the work they do, and more importantly, to identify what the other 20% were doing differently. His research led to experiences with thousands of employees and entrepreneurs from 158 countries. Scott distilled the results down to his Passionate Work Framework – three surprisingly simple practices for finding and doing work you love, that all happen to be completely within our control. He makes his career tools available free to the public through his community .

What business are you really in?

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

What business are you really in? What do your clients really want—whether they know it or not? What’s your legacy?

Take Starbucks — are they really in the coffee business? How about Apple, Toms and Facebook? Each of these great companies redefined the business they are in, and in each case, the results they have generated have been spectacular.
