Do you fantasize about walking off the job, Angela Bassett style - just to meet reality when you got home?

Have you ever dragged yourself to a shift knowing your boss was going to flip their lid and berate you about how the till was off by three cents, leaving you feeling demoralized and downright abused?

Do you see Instagram advice to "just quit" but the price of eggs is sky high and you still have student loan debt?

I mean, slamming the door in your bosses face would feel great, but adult you knows that relief would be short-lived and it would probably end up on TikTok anyway. 


You aren't alone.

Many (most?) people, myself included, don't have a trust fund, spouse or family to fall back on. Walking away isn't reasonable when you hold the full weight of providing for yourself and those you love. 

Now this sounds bleak, but we've only talked about the first chapter of your story. It's true, you may not have the luxury of just waltzing away from a job without a care, even if that job makes you want to chew your arm off.

But you don’t have to stay there forever either.​

My goal is to help you take the very doable steps toward a long-term, fulfilling, and sustainable career. 

I've lead people and organizations through the change process for more than a decade. What I know from first-hand experience, is that long-lasting change doesn't happen overnight. It takes time, especially if you lack support, resources or experience. 

This is why all of the resources I create have a long-term support option, including the 7 Steps. You'll not only receive an easy-to-follow guide to help you create an exit strategy, but you'll also receive weekly support completely free until you are able to find a new job.

Imagine handing in your resignation, calmly and on your terms. Starting a career path that highlights your strengths, sparks your curiosity and feels satisfying at the end of the day. It won't happen overnight, but it can happen.

"You're not a conventional coach/counselor/advisor and that's awesome because traditional, weirdly, has not worked for this erstwhile rule follower.

I cannot speak more highly of your integrity, rye wit, intuitive eye and efficacy in validating the humanness of the struggle to identify one’s work in the world."

"I think that, most likely, I would've given up on my dream career had it not been for the work we did."

I’m Shannon Post and I’m a career coach—but not the conventional blue-suit-and-tie type. I believe finding the work you love is an act of rebellion that will change the world.

What I know is, if you hate your job right now, it isn’t your fault. We live in a culture that depends on people believing work is supposed to suck. The good news is you have the power to change that. This is a skill you can learn. ​I can also tell you that you're not alone. I searched for the work I was meant to do for well over a decade. I’ve had crappy minimum wage jobs and what on paper were “dream jobs.”

I was a professional classical singer performing on the most famous stages in New York City. I was a dog musher for a prominent Iditarod racer in Alaska. And I was a CIO and top senior IT executive leading teams in technology and mapping. Read more...
