Why I Do What I Do
Just a few years ago I went through the toughest time of my life; some would call it a personal crisis, today I’d call it a long-overdue paradigm shift I needed, to get focused and reaching for the life I was meant to live. It all started when I got laid off from what I, back then, considered being my dream job. The worldwide financial crisis was full-blown, and like so many other companies, the agency I was working in was struck hard by it. All of a sudden, I was out of a job, and I had no clue what I wanted. In the following months, my world came crashing down. I was out of a job, got depressed, the relationship I was in ended, I got hospitalized and registered as homeless.
A New Beginning
It took almost a year for me to get back on my feet. When I found a place to live, I began a journey of soul-searching, looking for a deeper meaning in life. I spend time working intensely on Stephen Covey’s ‘7 Habits of Highly Effective People‘, which turned things around for me. It was at this point when I got back on track, I started sharing my story.
Not knowing what I was doing, I set up a blog, and I began writing about the things I’d learned from being laid off and sidelined in the game we call the job market. The single goal I had launching my blog, was to hopefully inspire and motivate, at least one other person out there in the Danish cyberspace so that other people wouldn’t have to go through the things I had.
That goal set me off on a journey that I had never thought or dreamt of. Suddenly I began receiving calls and emails from different Danish media’s, asking if they could interview me on the situation in the Danish job market. I helped journalists get in touch with the job seekers reading my blog, articles about my story were in the newspapers, and I began to receive requests about doing some speaking engagements about my story and how I had changed things around.
The speaking engagements led to doing workshops, and I got to work with the people I wanted to help motivate and inspire the most, the job seekers. All the experiences I’ve had since I began sharing my knowledge have now led me to want to share my career branding strategies with you, so you can start attracting a new world of career opportunities and get the career you want and deserve.cc
