You’re frustrated. Because your whole life you’ve been told something that you’re convinced doesn’t have to be true.
You’ve always been told you have to choose.
You can do good in the world.
Or you can do well.
And you’ve always wondered if you can bring your best self to your work, if you can create an environment for your people to do their best work, if you can create products and services that serve the world rather than deplete it, and you can create and enjoy abundance, too.
But on the rare occasions when you talk with someone about what you really want, about what you see as possible, people look at you like you’re crazy.
And then they go back to complaining and doing what they have always done. Sacrificing their soul for the sake of a paycheck. Or sacrificing their well-being for the sake of a cause.
You know you’re not crazy. You know this is a false choice. But why haven’t you taken action? What’s getting in the way?
Your success is your biggest obstacle.
Maybe you’re a CEO building a company. Maybe you’re just in a job that pays really well. But it’s not quite right. Every time you have to do something that doesn’t quite feel right, that you have to pick the short term bottom line over what’s right for the long term, you die a little. But most people would think you are crazy if you told them you’re unhappy, that it’s somehow not enough.
I understand. I’ve been there. It can feel crazy to risk your material success.
You’re afraid that you can’t have both money and meaning.
I assure you that’s not the case.
I’ve worked with people who got the role they wanted with the company they wanted and got a pay increase (sometimes a big one) in the process.
I’ve worked with people who have created new roles within the same company so that they could pursue a lifelong passion.
I’ve worked with CEOs who reworked their businesses to create more meaning, and it turned out that more profit showed up, too.
I can assure you that meaning and money, purpose and prosperity, can coexist quite happily, if you are willing to let them.
You may not know all the specifics. You don’t need to.
You just need to take the first step.
I can help.
I look forward to speaking with you.
