“Oh, you hate your job? Why didn’t you say so? There’s a support group for that. It’s called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar.” ― George Carlin
Sadly, this isn’t far from the truth: most people don’t like their jobs.
According to Gallup, 51% of people are not engaged at work. That means half of all working adults aren't happy in their so-so, vaguely tolerable job.
What’s even worse is that an additional 17% are actively disengaged, meaning they hate their jobs. We think these statistics are nothing short of tragic, and we want to help.
If you’re in either of these camps, but you’re ready to make a change, this course is for you. We’ll help you transition to a career where you can:
- Be respected and valued for the work you do
- Get paid what you’re worth
- Use your natural talents for what you were meant to do
- Have more flexibility, time, and freedom in your life
- Help others and make a difference
So get out of a job you hate (or just don’t love) and transition
smoothly into a life with more freedom, money, and fulfillment.
