Creating Your Own Opportunities

Ken Coleman is America’s Career Coach, the #1 national bestselling author of The Proximity Principle and From Paycheck to Purpose, and host of The Ken Coleman Show. Ken is known for helping people discover what they were born to do and providing practical steps to make their dreams reality.

In Amy Jo’s conversation with Ken, they talk through his personal journey and how he had to realize that “Nobody is sitting around thinking about how they are going to help you. You have to help yourself.” Ken went back to the basics and started with connecting, which he describes as a posture of learning.

Ken left the business world to move into broadcasting with no degree, no experience, and little connections. He talks about how he overcame fear, doubt, and pride issues. Ken had to collect on his career collateral so that he could get in the broadcasting industry and win.

Amy Jo and Ken discuss the difference between making things happen versus a letting things happen, and you’ll learn three key questions to ask yourself when considering changing careers so you can win in the next one.
