Ep. 180 - Do What You Love - with Vicky Oliver

The Impact Entrepreneur

Vicky Oliver’s favorite days begin when somebody writes to her and says they read her book and it helped them get a job. But Vicky didn’t start her career writing about job hunting – it took quite a few twists and turns before she stumbled into a mission that she loved. Vicky got her start in advertising. But, after September 11, 2001, there were articles in the New York Times every single day about people switching their careers. And this wasn’t because of a downturn in the economy – it was because they were looking inwards and asking, “Am I doing what I want to be doing should I die tomorrow?” And when people were honest with themselves, they started making gigantic changes. Vicky enjoyed writing commercials, but there was always the lingering feeling that she was making corporations rich, making millions of dollars for them, without really enriching herself. So she looked at her skill, which was writing, and asked herself: Can I do something else with this skill? Can I help people more? Throughout her career in advertising, Vicky was constantly looking for the next job opportunity, and she was actually really good at securing the jobs she wanted. She realized that she knew quite a bit about job hunting, and that was how she could help so many others achieve their mission. She started writing some articles, and then eventually a book. Even though Vicky made more money when she was in advertising, writing books turned out to be the thing that brings her the most satisfaction. As she says, “If you look at what you love to do, you will probably be better at it than if you just do something because you think it's going to make you a lot of money.” Don’t be a podcast junkie… Resources: Read: Bad Bosses, Crazy Coworkers & Other Office Idiots: 201 Smart Ways to Handle the Toughest People Issues Live Like a Millionaire (Without Having to Be One) vickyoliver.com Twitter: @vickyoliver Facebook: @vickyoliver Get your copy of Master the Key: A Story to Free Your Potential, Find Meaning and Live Life on Purpose -- We are brought to you by the Lawton Marketing Group, a full-service advertising and design agency serving companies and entrepreneurs at all levels.
