SIMPLE brand #51: Ken Coleman - From Paycheck to Purpose



In this week’s episode of the SIMPLE brand With Matt Lyles podcast I talk with Ken Coleman, author of From Paycheck to Purpose, The Clear Path to Doing Work You Love!


if you’re like most of the 55% of Ameircans who are looking for a new job it’s possible that you’re not entirely sure what you’re looking for. Or if you do know what you’re looking for, you may not fully know what it’ll take to get there.


If you’re not fully satisfied with your job today, then you likely want a more rewarding career.


But a rewarding career doesn’t just happen. It’s built, step by step, opportunity by opportunity, decision by decision. It takes a lot of intentionality to know the right steps to take, the right opportunities to pursue, and the right decisions to make.


And no matter where someone is in their career, it can leave them with a lot of questions on how they can really excel at each new level.


How do you get clear on understanding the work you were called to do?


How do you develop and manage the right relationships in your career?


How do you create a personal brand and reputation that has employers seeking you before you’re even seeking them?


How do you add value to your organizations and teams?


How do you lead and influence others?

It’s almost like you need a field manual to know exactly how to navigate these things in order to excel in your career.

And that’s why I’m happy to talk with Ken Coleman this week. 


Ken holds the title as “America’s career coach.” He’s the #1 national bestselling author of The Proximity Principle. And he’s the the nationally syndicated radio host of The Ken Coleman Show that’s heard on over 70 stations, SiriusXM, and his podcast where he helps listeners discover what they were born to do and while providing practical steps to make their dream job a reality.


And Ken’s new book comes out next week! - From Paycheck to Purpose: The Clear Path to Doing Work You Love.


Not only does Ken show how intentional, focused work over time leads to career success, he also lays out the seven stages for discovering and doing the work you were born to do so you can have career significance.
