Podcast: Recorded April 1, 2010 (43  min)

I’m often asked if anyone can really love what they do. To set the record straight, Nancy Anderson joins me with her new book Work with Passion at Midlife and Beyond and asks:

  • Are you as happy on Monday morning as you are on Friday afternoon?
  • Do you work with or for people who have the same values?
  • Do you wake up in the morning looking forward to a new day of challenge and growth?
  • Does your work give your life meaning and purpose?
  • Do you make the money you need?

If you can answer “no” to any of these questions, then you’ll want to join Nancy and I as we explore working with passion. We’ll talk about Nancy’s intuitive and practical approach to create the life you were born to live and how you can find work you love.

Aired: Thursday, March 25th at 3pm EST

Carolyn heads to provide answers and resources to working women everywhere about new career directions, surviving a layoff, changes needed in the workplace, launching a new business when money is tight and more.

“So much of what we read today seems out of touch with the times. While it’s lovely to pick up a magazine and view a nicely-painted rosy picture of the working world (“Re-invent Yourself With a Makeover and Get That Raise!”), sometimes that just doesn’t resonate when you’re up against a wall after a tough day.”

Carolyn is a straight shooter and doesn’t like to sugar-coat a thing.  We’ll talk about what women are really encountering in the work place, the good and the bad, and action steps that work toward having a successful job and career in today’s working world.
