    Crafting a Meaningful Career

    Change is inevitable. The days of getting an education, going to work for a company for thirty years, retiring, and playing golf until you die are long gone. By some accounts, Americans will have seven or more career changes during their working lives. Whether those changes are big or small, they all involve introspection on what you want out of your life, risk assessment, and consideration of the impact your decision will have on the lives of those you care about the most. This unique course offers you an opportunity to: examine the pros and cons of past employment; deep dive into what motivates you; and create a plan to confidently move on to the next level. It's about defining your unique purpose and how to make it a reality, not about filling in a slot on an HR staffing chart. Drawing on more than 40 years of experience as a creative consultant, Tony Luna will help you discover your new role and connect with a growing network of talented people who are now living their dreams. Redefine your goals and explore the exciting possibilities your talent has in store for you in this information-packed, vital, and enlightening class! In the words of George Eliot, "It's never too late to be who you might have been."
