FIND WORK THAT BRINGS YOU ALIVE.

The Vocation Program is a 6-month private coaching program that helps you find the work you’re made for–and take steps to start doing it.

YOU want work that energizes you, where you feel valued, where you’re growing and making a contribution, and using the best of yourself.

I have a proven, 4-phase program with the support and tools to get you there—quicker than you may have imagined.

HOW MUCH IS IT?

Right now, work is bringing you down.

Some of the following might sound familiar:

• You’ve lost interest in your job, and aren’t challenged in a way that matters to you.

• You’re not using all your best skills at work, or building new ones you care about.

• You’ve been at your job for a while, but you’re not advancing—and not feeling appreciated.

• You feel drained and restless at night, sometimes dreading work the next day.

• You’d like to be in new work, but don’t know what—and have no idea how to get there.

But none of this is who you are. Deep down, you know you’re meant for more and have much to give. 

What would be different for you if you were happy in your work?

 Really consider that. I’d bet:

1. You’d wake up more energized and excited to start your day.

2. You’d feel more motivated and confident at work, because you enjoy what you do and know you’re valued there.

3. You’d connect with others more easily, in and outside of work.

4. You’d be able to focus and make decisions more easily, in your work and everyday life.

5. You’d feel more present and all-around healthier, not carrying around stress of dreading your work.

Sounds wonderful. But how do you get to more fulfilling work from here?

Building a happy, meaningful work life might feel totally overwhelming right now—maybe even impossible. It’s true that it takes hard work and the willingness to grow. But it’s not as complicated as we make it.

Bottom line, what you need is:

• a structured, step-by-step process to gently drill down to what makes you most alive, and what work path you’re called to now, &

• objective, intuitive, professional support to help you reflect deeply and ultimately connect the dots of where you feel called in your work—and act on them.

I know what it’s like to feel frustrated in your work.

Hi, I’m Sara :).

I was unfulfilled for nearly a decade in my work, and had no idea how to fix it. Learn more about this here.

Today, I not only have the meaning and joy I wanted in my work; I’m much happier across my life, too. This includes:

> In my relationships, including meeting my life partner.

> In my home life.

> And maybe most of all, in my understanding of who I am and what I’m here to do.

For me, getting clarity around work piece initiated a huge breakthrough to other things I wanted across my life. I don’t know why, but in my case, the work piece had to come first.

If you feel stuck in work—and it’s affecting your larger life, too—I’d love to help. 

I can help because finding work fulfillment has been the biggest dilemma of my adult life so far, and I’ve come through it. And using everything I learned through my own experience, study, and coach training, I created this coaching program to help people like you come through it, too.

Because the world’s a better place for everyone when more of us are happy in our work, and I know from the deepest place in me that you’re made for powerful things.

INTRODUCING THE VOCATION PROGRAM:

Your map to finding work that brings you alive.

This program is designed for people who view their work not just as a career, but as a calling.

My approach is both practical and spiritual. We work from the inside out in the understanding that, as Parker Palmer puts it, we can’t tell our lives what we intend to do with them without first listening to them telling us who we are.

I guide you through a ripening process where you can arrive at an answer of where you feel called right now and move with it because you know it’s true for you. You feel it viscerally.

My role is to provide you with the tools and support to move through a deep vocational discernment process, and to witness you each step of the way.

How the program works:

You work with me as your private coach. We meet regularly over the phone or Skype to work through a proven, 4-phase process designed to help you:

• identify work that excites and connects with you,

• get a realistic picture of what it looks like in practice, and

• take steps to move into the vocation calling you now.

Here’s what it looks like phase by phase:

Become aware of your energy, what matters to you, and who you are today.

The program starts with an online energy assessment to explore how your energy is currently working for you and also against you at times. Once you’re more aware of this, you can start making the changes you want.

I also help you stop and take stock of who you are today (including your values, strengths, and more) along with—this is a big one—who you want to be at the end of your life.

In knowing better who you are, you’ll soon be able to more clearly discern what you want to do in your work.

Explore a vital, more subtle part of who you are: your larger purpose/passion.

Now with your solid foundation of self-awareness, you’re ready to go deeper and hone into your larger purpose/passion right now.

This is what Rumi calls “the one thing you must do” because it gives the world your best and makes you feel more fulfilled than anything else you can do. And it’s what I believe is the secret ingredient in identifying work that’s meaningful to you in a lasting way :).

I also help you drill down to why this purpose/passion matters to you—by clarifying what kind of world you believe in and want to help create that connects to it.

Fully grounded in your larger purpose/passion, you’re now ready to explore work that will help you live it.

To map forward in a meaningful way with your work, you have to first understand where you’ve been. So you’ll start this phase by clarifying what’s worked for you and what hasn’t in your past jobs, and why.

I guide you on getting clear on the things you need in a work situation to feel fulfilled. Then I’ll help you choose three work directions to explore that align with your larger purpose and energize you right now.

Engage in live work experiments to identify what works for you in reality.

In our last phase, you’ll engage in six weeks of live work experiments with my active support each step. You’ll do research, informational interviews, and possibly shadowing and/or volunteering.

Drawing on all you’ve learned about yourself in the first three phases, (this is key) you’ll reflect regularly on your work experiments as you go along.

By the end of this program, you’ll be ready to discern which direction has the most energy for you right now—and start moving into it.

What’s the investment?

The investment for the Vocation Program is $3847, or 10 monthly payments of $427. (Save $423 by paying in one sum up front.)

“I was referred to Sara from someone who knew I was exploring big changes in my work life.  I was burnt out and developing a negative view of work.

Sara encouraged me to examine my mental habits surrounding my expectations of myself in work.  She helped me believe that I could create and own a work life which encompassed my talents, values, and purpose. I benefited greatly from Sara, a coach who knew how to listen, question, and encourage me.  I now feel ownership of my work life and have a much more positive outlook.”

MATT RICHARDS

“After two Peace Corps assignments, meeting with Sara was just what I needed to align my deepest convictions of who I knew I was and who I wanted to become.

I honestly never imagined that I could be so satisfied in my career and in my family life, and I feel I owe much of my present satisfaction in life to Sara’s influence on me in that very critical and transitional time in my life.  She taught me that life is a mission and not a career.  She helped me establish persistence and kindness as ruling properties in my family.”
