How I transformed my life from living “the” dream to living my dream.
Who doesn’t want to live the dream? Certainly after a decade of my ambitious 20’s I was expecting to be living the dream when I hit my 30’s. I had lots of the pieces of “the dream” in place. I had gotten my Master’s degree, and was living on the outskirts of Boston working in the high-tech field during the great dot com bubble. I was earning good wages and by all accounts doing well as a career-oriented young professional. But I wasn’t happy.
I was starting the process of looking for a new career, but I had no idea what I wanted to do. I was incredibly fortunate that a job fair that I went to had a group of life coaches who were giving away 15 minute sessions. I didn’t know about life coaching at the time, but I had 15 minutes to spare and felt that I could really use some guidance. Looking back at it now, I realize that was a pivot point in my life. I hired a coach.
