Craft a Life You Love

A three month mentorship program

Dear Burned-Out, Closet-Mystic, Corporate Worker,

 

If you are reading this, then you are likely trapped in what I call The Corporate Stress Theme Park.

The only way to escape your corporate-theme-park life is to turn around, face away from the park, find a destination you want to get to, and then move toward it.

 

I’d like to help you get out for good.

I should warn you that this is a long love letter. It is crafted to help you get a clear sense of where you are, and how to get out, and feel better. I would recommend taking your time getting through it. Or, you can skim and jump around to the parts that matter to you. 

 

What is the Corporate Stress Theme Park?

 

Let me tell you a story…

Imagine that you are looking for work.

 

You end up going to a theme park with friends. You see a roller coaster and well… it looks exhilarating. Why not? So you pay your money, get on and off it goes.

 

You’re laughing and screaming the whole time. It’s a shot of adrenaline that makes you feel more invigorated and alive. 

 

As you pull in at the end, the person working it says, “Want to go again?”

 

Well… why not?

 

“You know,” they say. “We’re actually hiring people to ride the roller coaster. Studies show that if people see someone riding the roller coaster, they’re more likely to want to ride.”

 

You could be paid to ride a roller coaster? Yes, please!

 

That’s solution #1: You get a job. Problem solved. But wait...

 

But, of course, the second time isn’t as fun as the first. You don’t feel so great after.  

 

The third time even less so. But you are being paid, so there’s that.

 

By the end of the day, what was once fun is now grinding you down and wearing you out. 

Spending all your time and energy on the roller coaster is starting to become a problem.

 

“No more roller coaster for me!” you say and ask around the theme park if any other rides are hiring riders. 

That’s solution #2: You get off the stressful roller coaster.  Problem solved. But wait…

 

You ride the teacups but those get boring really quickly. You check out the fun house but that is terrifying and disconcerting. After awhile, you’re sick of them too. 

 

You walk around the theme park and try the meditation garden and a nifty yoga class. Ah, that feels good. 

 

That’s solution #3: You de-stress yourself. Problem solved. But wait...

 

Eventually, you have to get back on a ride, in order to get paid. 

 

But you don’t wanna ride any of the rides any longer. You want to escape the stress theme park. You use your vacation time and take a break. You go to the Bahamas for a week, since, that’s all the paid vacation time you have. Woohoo! You come back refreshed.

 

That’s solution #4: You get away from it all. Problem solved. But wait...

 

After a few weeks, back at the theme park, you feel sick again. Ugh.

 

Your routine is to go to work and come home. Home is a sanctuary. Home starts to feel like a recovery center. You make dinner, zone out to Netflix, sleep and repeat the day all over again. You live through the theme park week patterns - the depressing Monday, the humpday Wednesday and the Thank God It’s Friday (TGIF). When will this end? 

 

You want to exit, but you aren’t sure how. 

 

Even going home isn’t a solution. Home is next to the theme park. In fact, your neighborhood is basically owned and was built by the people who run the theme park. They live right next to you and they are stuck in the same exact cycle that you’re stuck in. You know there must be other exits and options, but the only one you can see is “quit” which isn’t going to work for you. 

 

You can’t afford to quit.

 

There are no exit signs. 

 

So you drive out of your neighborhood in search of other work. 

That’s solution #5: You look for some kind of way out. Problem solved. But wait…

 

In the end, you get so lost and turned around and it takes so long and costs so much staying in motels along the way that you need to head back home to go back to that theme park job you hate. 

 

You feel trapped. 

 

And you are out of solutions. 

 

What now?

I see many corporate workers trapped in this dynamic. Trapped in the idea that the corporate theme park is the only way to live. It isn’t. 

The only true way out of your corporate-theme-park life is to turn around, face away from the park, find a destination you want to get to, and then move toward it.

Ah… but it’s not so simple.

 

What I’m about to share could be useful to you if…

 

  • You work a super stressful corporate job somewhere in America

  • You have quit a job or two but don’t feel better. You still feel trapped

  • You've had a panic attack or two and know what it is to be completely overwhelmed and stressed out and you want solutions.

  • You go to bed with a “to-do list” in your head and you wake up crafting a new one. 

  • You find yourself worrying over your worries

  • You have noticed your body’s reaction to the stress of life in corporate america. Maybe you have trouble sleeping, digestive issues, or, have migraines or strange body aches or illnesses, even autoimmune disorders.

  • You have absolutely NO TIME for anything extra and are running yourself ragged on the daily. However...

  • You are ready to take action and change in small meaningful ways, daily, from the moment you hit “go” and commit to working with me. This could look like 15 minutes a day or perhaps a 1-3 hour block each week. 

  • You are interested in prayer, meditation, tarot, oracle cards or astrology and are intrigued by the idea of exploring divine guidance and inspiration.

If that all seems like it’s a fit, download my eBook to learn about how this Corporate Stress Theme Park exists in real life, and read on to learn more about how I can help.

The only thing that will actually help in the long term is making a plan to get off the roller coaster and out of the theme park. 

You desperately want to escape not only from your job but from the corporate theme park entirely. And yet you see no way out. There is too much confusion and you aren’t sure where the exits are or how to get there. 

 

This happened to me too.

My Story:

 

I first encountered the Corporate Stress Theme Park when I was working my first HR job out of college, a temporary position for $13/hr, and trying to pay off my student loans and rent an apartment and support myself and a partner. When I got hit with just one more bill, it felt like the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back or the last snowfall that started the avalanche. 

 

I started working out and moving my body. I started binging on Netflix. I went for walks on the weekends. I cleaned my house obsessively. I started drinking more alcohol. I used all of the regular hacks to beat back the stress and anxiety. 

 

But it didn’t work. 

 

I took different jobs at different companies with different scopes of work. I learned and studied side passions like yoga, Shiatsu bodywork and stress reduction techniques. No matter what I did, in my free time, I still felt anxious and burned out. 

 

The stress kept coming back. Again and again. Some “fire drill” - needing information or a project done immediately and at top priority - would happen at work. This created a fast heart rate in my body, slow and stagnate breathing patterns, anxiety and touchiness and a biting commentary response to anything someone asked me to do. 

 

I was super stressed out. 

 

I’ve been in Corporate America, Human Resources and Recruiting, for 15 years and I have seen the insane amount of stress and anxiety it can drive into people.​

There is a way to opt out of corporate america. For good. It is simple, but can be difficult, and it requires practice. 

So how do we finally get off of the Stress Roller Coaster? 

 

You need a map and a compass you can trust so that you can find your exit.

Honing the Compass

A compass can guide you out of the park. You need a compass that can find YOUR True North. Everything in the park is twisty turny; the park is not designed to help you leave. You need to trust yourself so that you know when the exit signs you see are real exits from the corporate system. 

 

This compass is divine guidance and trusting your gut. Trusting your internal orientation to the world. Learning how to tune in and work with your intuition will help you reconnect to your essence and trust your sense of True North. 

Reading the Map

Once you know which direction to go, you need a map in order to figure out how to get out of the park. 

 

This map needs to come from someone who has been there and done that, someone who has rode the rides and walked around the park, who has taken the vacations and gone back into the whole thing. 

I have been there, and done that. I know where the true exits are. Let me give you a map you can trust.

Together, we will get you out and keep you out of the theme park. For good.
