Hello my name is Steve and I’m actually recording this testimonial to share my recent experience of working with Nemo.
I actually came to Empjoyment because I’m a career changer myself. Trying to get into a technical role was a particularly challenging for me, so I needed some extra help. When I saw that he had a website coaching and a podcast supporting these things, I had to reach out and get some help with my own situation.
I had come to a crossroads essentially where I had gone out to pursue a career of my interest, and I had spent pretty much spent the last three years acquiring all kinds of skills to give myself the best resume to get out there and get one of these positions. After several interviews and exhausting my network, I actually wasn’t able to get a position that I’ve been dreaming of!
And so at this crossroads, I wasn’t sure if I was two steps away from greatness or if I needed to go a completely different direction for what I aspire to in a job in a career.
For me, there was a lot of fear and anxiety with “which step do I want to take next”. It was very challenging to want to pursue this [career] any further with the disappointments and setbacks that [I] had faced at this point.
What was great about working with Nemo is in our first one-on-one coaching session, I was able to just speak freely and let all of my feelings be expressed with my frustrations. That was something where, as I would seek out friends and family to get help, they could understand me but they lack the ability to really sense and get me to where I wanted to go. That’s where Nemo was a huge help because he was able to listen to my concerns and offered really constructive guidance to get me towards the goal and the career that I actually truly aspired.
What was really great about our one-on-one coaching sessions is he would always have something of action that I could take between our next session. What I found great was it was tailor-made to me, so I was given advice on certain books articles that I should follow up on to get a better understanding for where I wanted to go next. Even some of his podcast episodes on Empjoyment were just really eye-opening to me.
As I uncovered this information that Nemo pointed me in the direction of, it was like getting splashed in the face with a bucket of cold water for me because I was just getting exposed to new information that just woke me up and got me refocused again [on] where I wanted to go.
Ultimately, from these one-on-one coaching sessions, I’ve been able to pretty much walk into and make steps towards my end career- the career I’m going for.
It’s hard to quantify at this point in time, but I am taking little steps each day every day towards my dream career whereas it feels like now that I was taking steps towards something that wasn’t quite what I wanted out of life and out of my career.
Not only that but as I take these steps through talking and working with Nemo and his coaching, I have no fear, no doubt, no worry that the path that I am on is the right path that I’m supposed to be on.
I just wanted to share this experience because if I’m having these challenges I know someone else out there is.
I just can’t say enough how much of a help Nemo has been to me to give me this strength and courage and confidence to go after what I want in a career.
I can really say I’m going to be living the Employment lifestyle where you get joy out of your employment and combine the two and that’s really a great thing because it’s something I haven’t had before.
I couldn’t be more grateful for all of Nemo’s help.
