Have you ever heard the old saying, “Find a job you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life”? That’s the dream. To wake up everyday, do something you love and get paid for it. Now, we all can’t be paid to watch sitcoms and eat pizza—else I would sign up right away. So how do you find out if what you are doing is right for you?

1. You are excited.

Do you find yourself jotting down ideas for work late at night, talking your family’s ears off telling them about this exciting new opportunity or product that your company is releasing, or even going into the office willingly on weekends? Being excited about what you are doing is a clear sign that you should be doing it.

2. You’ve mastered your craft.

Maybe it’s not mastered just yet, as I am a firm believer that we are never done learning. However, doing something that you are good at breeds confidence, which results in job satisfaction. Being satisfied by your job is not the only sign that it is perfect for you, but the job can’t be perfect for you without it.

3. You are not simply trading time for money.

When you are in a less-than-fulfilling job you clock in when necessary and clock out when necessary. You are simply there to do what is required of you during the hours that your employer requires it. When you’ve found the right career, you are trading your skills and your passion and receiving a whole lot more than just a paycheck. If you had unlimited resources—would this be your career of choice?

4. You have your blinders on.

We often hear about having blinders as a bad thing—they stop you from seeing the context and therefore distort your picture. However, when you are choosing a career, sometimes that context can distort what we really want. Maybe every woman in your family has been a teacher, or your parents are lawyers who want you to join the family business. When you do not pay attention to all the opinions of what others believe you should be, you find out what will make you happy.

5. You are part of something bigger.

Whether that something is a team working towards the same goal, or a positive change on the world stage, this is about more than earning a living and self-satisfaction for you. You are one piece in a grand mosaic. Your surroundings make you feel welcomed and appreciated.

Do you feel this way about your job? What would you change about your current work situation?

I began my entrepreneurial career at 18 years old owning a franchise with a landscaping company. Over 8 years I grew my first business to a multi-million dollar business with over 10 managers, 80 staff and 25,000 customers and then sold it when I was 26. I then took up a position with the company I sold it to and proudly held the position of National Sales Director for the largest direct sales company in Canada servicing over 400,000 homes specializing in property beautification services. Then I had the idea for GoWrench Auto and knew I had to pursue it. We specialize in providing "Auto Repairs and More Right to Your Door" with certified mobile automotive technicians. In other words, we come to your home or work to fix your car and save you the time and hassle (and even some money!)  of bringing it in. I am very passionate about people, business, sales/business psychology, performance, and overall having great interactions with staff, customers, professionals and investors. I have meticulously studied business and sales to become the utmost and highest level performer and achiever in my field and continue to pursue knowledge in my business and personal life.
