Why She Helps People Choose a More Meaningful Life
Like most people, I grew up in an era where the societal norm was to get an education, get a job, rise in rank, work till you’re 65 years and retire. I spent years conforming to that paradigm. I became an overachiever switching careers often but remained unfulfilled. 20 jobs and 6 career changes later, I left feeling empty and unfulfilled. No number of promotions or pay increases could fill the void, I was desperately unhappy.
Even though I thoroughly enjoyed the people side of my career, the culture became increasingly toxic and I was tired of being told when, where, how and who to work with. I won’t even talk about office politics.
Every new career or job was a new challenge and I would throw myself in, bursting with energy and waking up excited every day. But eventually, I would end up feeling like I was running on empty and totally unfulfilled. I always knew that I wanted to do my own thing and social impact on the world.
Two years ago, a health scare changed my life forever. I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and hypothyroidism. I was placed on a lifetime sentence of medication and I knew I had to now only make changes to my physical wellness but my life as a whole. I didn’t want to spend another moment doing things I didn’t enjoy and suppressing my life’s purpose to impact the world in a great way.
I started Joan Nwosu Coaching in response to a large number of stuck, unfulfilled corporate professionals with a desire to start a meaningful business or career but had no idea how to transition. My goal is to help them get clarity and support to achieve their dreams and ultimately create the life they want.
