This post is all about our February 20th launch of Living for Monday’s first official offering, Career Kickstarter. We’ve been working hard on this program for nearly six months straight, and on February 20th we’ll release it to the world.
As you can imagine, we’re extremely excited about it. We’ve given a ton of information below, but I hope you’ll take the time to read through all of it. And if it looks like the Career Kickstarter program might be for you, let me know asap – I want you to have a spot. If you have questions or want to learn more before signing up, let’s set up a meeting or phone call – email me at Barrett@Livingformonday.com.
If it’s not for you, but you know someone who might be interested or could benefit, please share this blog post with them or send me their contact information and I’ll send them this information directly.
I can’t thank you enough for your continued reading of my blog here at Living Values. The Career Kickstarter program is the culmination of hundreds of hours of work, and I could not be more excited about the upcoming launch.
Here’s the details:
The Living for Monday Career Kickstarter Program
Living for Monday is an Atlanta-based coaching, consulting, and training company whose mission is to equip individuals and organizations to do fulfilling, meaningful work. For a more informal explanation, check out our motto:
“Don’t wait for weekends to do the work you love”
To us, this joyfully explains our core belief that work should be stimulating, purposeful, and worth waking up for on Monday morning.
Living for Monday currently offers free and paid products and services that help college students and young professionals discover and get hired for their dream jobs (and a bunch of other cool stuff, but that’s for another day).
A limited number of spots are open in our Career Kickstarter program, which begins on February 20th, 2012. The coaching curriculum is designed for individuals or self-formed groups of 3-5. After the spots fill up, the only way the curriculum will be available is via the online self-study version. I promise the coaching portion is worth your while (see testimonials below). Currently, there are only 17 spots left for coaching. Don’t take the decision lightly, but certainly take advantage of the opportunity before the spots are gone. (We won’t open the curriculum up again until the second half of 2012.)
The remainder of this post outlines the details of the “Career Kickstarter” program and it’s benefits.
An inside-out process to discover your dream job (and get it)
Through our curriculum, our clients receive three key benefits:
(a) Transformed mindset :: stop dreading the concept of work, learn where you provide value, and figure out how to get paid for it
(b) Accessible toolset :: acquire practical means for breaking into the industry where you want to be and stop hoping a dream job just shows up
(c) Expanded job set :: “over 80% of today’s jobs aren’t advertised” [CNN Money] – learn how to access the hidden job market without destroying your professional network in the process
Through these benefits the Career Kickstarter program helps clients move from “I don’t know what I want to do in life” to having a plan to land their dream job in just 10 weeks.
Who Career Kickstarter Benefits
Let’s be real, this program isn’t for just anyone. It’s difficult. As a participant, you should be ready to push yourself and be pushed. That’s simply what it takes to find fulfilling work.
The only thing we require is a determination to succeed and a dedication to the Career Kickstarter program. We’ve worked with students getting ready to graduate, young business owners, and young professionals making career switches. Anyone who has the desire to start or move into a passionate career and is willing to put forth the effort will benefit greatly from our program.

What our past clients have to say
“Barrett and I started working together 2 months ago with the intention of aligning my values, strengths and passions with my small business. The results have been amazing. Barrett has a unique ability to ask the right questions that force me to think deeper into what my business needs and why. It has allowed me to have purpose in what I do. We have seen increases in revenues of 30% since we started coaching.” – Chris Reene, Business Owner, via LinkedIn
“There is something about having an outside, professional perspective that is truly different from what family or friends could offer you. I have learned so much about my strengths and weakness and how to be proactive with both. For the first time in my career, I have genuine, SPECIFIC direction that I can be proud of and excited to accomplish!…Every time I hang up the phone (I’m a cross-country client), I feel a surge of productivity.” – Kat Cowley, Writer, via LinkedIn
“Barrett has been stellar during our working together. His ability to relate and encourage make for productive and comfortable sessions. He can easily communicate in person, via phone, or through Skype, bringing a needed flexibility to the meeting locations. After our sessions, I feel motivated to define my future and take my career search to the next level.” – Miles Buchanan, Student, via LinkedIn
