I bet you’re looking at this while…
Stealing a moment to daydream on your lunch break
Feeling the onset of Sunday scaries before full-out Monday dread
Asking Google to find you a dream job
Researching “How to get paid to travel the world” then deciding you’re going crazy
believe me, I get it.
All your ambition and wit landed you this fancy corporate job,
but any sense of meaning, purpose, and true fulfillment got left at the door.
that was me.
I was praised for getting a top job right out of business school, earning more money than I knew what to do with, consulting for corporate giants. But it left me empty.
I felt like I was throwing away my chance at an exciting and meaningful life in exchange for the security that comes with a job that represents money and status but not me.
I did the pragmatic thing. I’m so thankful I did. But I knew it was time to use the clout I had earned to fuel my own dreams, instead of someone else’s.
I was losing my mind because…
I had NO IDEA how to find a dream job that would be fulfilling, but also pay the bills
If I quit, I feared judgement for playing into the Millennial stereotype
I was so worried I would regret my decision
If so you probably have a browser history that looks something like this:
> Corporate jobs that let me leave by 5pm (thoughts: meh what the heck, this is just the same thing I’m trying to escape from)
> Well-paying non-profit jobs (thoughts: wait is this really my passion? Hold on…what am I actually passionate about?)
> MBA in Entrepreneurship (thoughts: ok at least this sounds cool and I would have more time to figure things out)
> Art History masters program in Rome (thoughts: hmmm well if I’m craving some inspiration and excitement in life…)
> Yosemite Park Ranger job openings (thoughts: screw it, I just want to be at peace in the wilderness)
GASP. Then this thought…
What am I doing!? What do I REALLY want to do with my life!?
Wait also - as a believer and follower of Jesus, what does the Bible say about work!? HOW AM I NOT CRYSTAL CLEAR ON THIS ALREADY after years of going to church!?
*cue reading what the Bible actually says a calling is and how to find it and then thinking WHY ISN’T EVERYONE SCREAMING THIS FROM THE MOUNTAIN TOPS!?*
My last straw was realizing
I could take this leap or spend the rest of my life working myself into the ground to make someone else rich
Even if I screw everything up at first, I have a much better chance that I’ll be where I want to be before 30
I was working so hard to master things I didn’t even care about while letting my true potential go to waste
I was SICK of scrolling through Instagram, envying people who had the guts to create an inspiring, meaningful life
I was so annoyed at myself for binging “How I Built This”, filling myself with inspo, but doing nothing about it
I knew that so many people shared my desires, doubts, fears, and confusion while dreaming of a purposeful & rewarding career, but were left STUCK not knowing exactly how to find one!
My answer became clear.
I was going to pave my own path, find my true calling, and help others do the same so we can be proud of the way we spent our lives
So I turned in my notice and jumped.
Not once have I looked back and been anything less than elated that I did.
What clients are saying:
Entering the third year of my career, I was expecting nothing short of great things! I thought surely by year three I'd have things figured out and begin to make the impact I saw so much potential for in addition to finding the level of joy in my job I had always dreamed of having.
Not the case. Work was more difficult and less enjoyable than expected despite the incredible mentors I had walking along side me.
Enter Kelsey Kemp.
Our video chats consistently brought about new questions and understanding that extended beyond my current circumstances to reach past where mentors had been before. Our calls not only brought hope but also tangible change.
Sweet soul - it’s time to:
Build a career you and God can be proud of
Understand the fact that you were created to be a unique masterpiece
USE your talents in service to the world, in a way that is meaningful to you
Realize that following your calling doesn’t mean you’ll have to give up your hopes of financial prosperity
Get crystal freaking clear on your mission and exactly how you’ll make a career out of it
Create a transition plan you can be confident in
If you’re sick of quotes like…
“What are you going to do with your one wild and precious life?” - Mary Oliver
…on the ‘Gram hitting you deep, but not having a lick of certainty on what to do about it…
Personally, listening to “The Fools Who Dream” from La La Land put me at risk of booking a one-way ticket to Europe at any second.
But I get it. You’re probably thinking, “YES, Kelsey. I so feel this pain, but…”
What if I’m just one of those people that doesn’t have a grand mission or outrageous, unique talents? Maybe not everyone has a calling (<— Let me just say right now - this is SUCH a lie!!)
Maybe I just need to go back to school to have more time to figure this out while adding more credentials to my resume? AGH. but I don’t want to lay down $50,000 just to buy time and relief from this draining corporate job!
Is it even possible to feel confident in making a big leap?
Maybe I just need to be reasonable and content with my current job. As an adult, I just need to get used to the “real world.”…right?
If I get a new job, what if I make less money than I do now? If that’s the case, shouldn’t I just be saving money instead of investing in you as my career coach?
It feels like I’m jumping off the train to traditional success - what if I’m never able to get back on it!?
