Questions & Answers


Webinar Overview

Be the You, YOU Want to Be and LOVE your Life!

When a career coach sits you down they often ask you, “what do you want from life?” so that they can know what careers to recommend for you.,ost people don’t know what they want from life so they just spit out some generic answer like money, happiness, or helping others and end up convincing themselves that that answer was their own. We want to help you answer that question every career adviser asks.

As humans, we get to choose what we believe and who we want to be. Those are the two most important choices you will ever make so make sure you put a little thought behind them. Few people take the time at the beginning of their careers to understand the fundamentals about what kind of careers and jobs will co-exist with answers to those questions. But you will! You will put your life and career decades ahead of others and position yourself to make the right decisions to launch and lead a successful career.

Malcom and Simone will focus on the following three themes:

  • What specifically do you want to maximise with your life. You only get one shot at this, how will you spend it?
  • How to choose a job and career trajectory that maximises what you have chosen to spend your life on and who you have chosen to be.
