Work for creative people, and for all sorts of people, looks different now. Don’t fear the shake up.
Do you hate the question, “What do you do for a living?”. Have you ever asked it of someone and then felt like it was the wrong question to ask as soon as you said it? I have a few suggestions and a really funny story about my own experience too.
In January (2016) I’m talking about the concepts of calling and meaningful work.
For more on how you can join in that worldwide endeavor for yourself, in your own way, visit the #synCREATE page.

A theme this month is all out vocation. There will be other things covered each week too, but we will be trying to think differently about vocation and asking what it means to do meaningful work at different seasons of life.
What does it mean to you?
For Lori and her journey she wonders about doing God’s will.
What do I believe vocation is?
Privileged statement, “Do what you love and love what you do vocationally.”
Asking am I squandering gifts?
Should I live out my gifts outside a paying job?

About finding your calling.
About rewarding work that doesn’t pay
About doing jobs you didn’t expect or ones that seem to not be right for us.
What to you find meaningful in work? A greater purpose? Improving lives and soul work and a cause.
