ESCAPE MONDAY: Creating Your Dream Career (You May Not Know Existed)

With Michelle Ward, aka The When I Grow Up Coach

Hate your job but have no idea how to turn your passions into profit?

Feeling stuck figuring out how to use your skills to pay the bills and have fun doing it?

After going through her own career change from musical theater actress, to office assistant, to one of the most sought after career coaches for creatives, Michelle Ward has helped hundreds of people figure out what they really want to be when they grow up.

We’ll also hear from some special guests who’ve carved creative careers out of passion projects, hobbies, and things they always loved to do but never thought anyone would pay them money to do it.

It’s time to love Mondays again!
