Day 268 - Loving What I Do
Wow, what a day.
It started with an informational interview with one of the directors at SE Works. I talked to her about a project I want to work on to either create an organization similar to WorkPlace in Connecticut (as featured on 60 Minutes a couple Sundays ago), or perhaps to work with a program that already exists in an effort to help long-term unemployed executives and managers - an almost invisible group within the uncounted. As I discussed the ideas, I really felt as if this could go somewhere, and she promised to try to put me in touch with a few people within the state WorkService organization.
Then I had two meetings almost back-to-back with coaching clients. Both went very well, and I was able to earn a little pocket change.
All three conversations remind me of the joy that comes with helping people in this atrocious economy. I love what I do. I want to keep doing it. I have to keep doing it.
