Show Notes

Scott Anthony Barlow (Happen to Your Career Podcast) knows what it is like to be miserable in his job and struggle to find a way out of it. Today, Scott is on a mission to help as many people as possible find fulfillment and happiness in their careers. He and his team at Happen to Your Career help others avoid the same mistakes he made trying to find meaningful work. 


In this episode, Scott and I talk about the importance of finding the right “fit” in your career and why every career professional must get more specific about the value they bring to their current or future organization to live lives that are more personally and professionally fulfilling. 


Scott’s new book, “Happen to Your Career,” is available for pre-sale here
