Nov 10, 2020

Let me ask you a question…when you go to work every day, are you doing a job or is it your dream career?

Fearless Practitioners - Be Brave and Turn Your Contacts Into Your Dream Career

Because there is a difference!

One of the things that I have learned from my years in private practice is that sometimes things just don’t work out. It wasn’t because I didn’t work or try hard enough, it was just not meant to be.

Being brave enough to follow up on emails and connect with people can be the key that unlocks your dream career. Listen in as Amy shares how she built her dream career by tapping into her connections, following up with people and being brave.
