Ans: When the founders of Work You Want started to look for the work they really wanted to do, the road how to get there was not at all clear to them.
What was clear to them however was that they absolutely wanted to make sure, that they end up with work they really wanted to do. Because they were convinced that it would be so much more fun, so much more motivating, so much more fulfilling. And ultimately, they would be so much more successful. They wanted to have a purpose why they got up on a Monday morning. They wanted to feel the inner fire again.
To them, this topic was very important, and they took it seriously. Why? Because of the time they spent at work. Because the impact work has on their life – mentally, physically, financially speaking. They felt that not spending time on work they really wanted was a waste of (their life) time.
So they got started on finding the work they love. They went through the ‘career service’ material of their MBA (>8 years old by then), read tons of books, clicked through hundreds of blogs, and took a US>2000$ course “how to find the job they love”. They also each interviewed more than 30 successful entrepreneurs and executives on what they recommend discovering, finding, and getting Work You Want. And of course, needless to mention the amounts of friends and current and former colleagues they talked to (the reassuring thing here always was: They had the same challenge of finding work they loved!).
After finding the work they loved, the founders of Work You Want put down their learning in the process of finding work they love and decided to share this with everyone who is in the same spot. That was the base for Work You Want and you find all of those learning plus the learning from working with >200 participants in this offer.
Today, our mission is to help 1000 people to discover, find, and get work they really want. Because that makes this planet a better place.
