Ready to dive deep and find work that feeds your soul?
You're in the right place.
I’m Julia Bushue and I help people who are unsatisfied with or undecided about their career direction figure out what they want and how to get there.
Whether you’re just starting out, wanting a change, or returning after an absence, I’ve helped someone like you find clarity, confidence, and direction.
I don’t have to tell you how frustrating and disempowering it is to work at a job you dislike.
And yet it feels equally intimidating to make a change when you don’t know how.
Fortunately, you don't have to figure it out by yourself.
Imagine approaching your search for meaningful work as an epic quest: a challenging but ultimately rewarding source of growth and personal transformation.
Learning to navigate change in this way opens the door to a more emotionally resilient way of being in the world, no matter what life throws at you.
This soul-centered attitude is at the heart of my approach.
“Here we are and what the hell are we
going to do with it”
- Frank O’Hara
Career change isn’t all assessments, resume-writing, and tweaking your LinkedIn profile (barf). It’s also about discovering your right livelihood and answering Frank O’Hara’s question for yourself.
This process requires intelligence, compassion, courage, curiosity, perseverance, practicality, and soulfulness. It demands absolute honesty about what you want and what you’re willing to do to get there.
It’s not always easy, but it doesn’t have to be soul-sucking. In fact, doing this work is one of the best presents you could give yourself - and I’ll be by your side every step of the way.
Who I Work With:
You've got a shiny new degree, but you're not sure what to look for in your first job.
You've worked hard to get where you are, but you aren't happy anymore and you don't know what to do.
You've spent some time away from a traditional career and you're trying to plan your re-entry strategy.
My approach centers on helping you build the "3 Cs":
clarity about what you want
confidence in your ability to find or create it
cognizance of available methods, options and resources
Successful change requires two essential elements: strategy and mindset.
The longer I do this work, the more I recognize Rumi’s wisdom when he said, “Work at least as hard in the invisible as you do in the visible.”
Mindset is everything, but most of us never learn to cultivate it. You can have the best strategy in the world and still fail if you’re not in mental and emotional alignment with it.
If you’ve ever tried to make a big change on your own, you know how hard it can be to stay on track. It's easy to get confused about your next move or stall out when you get frustrated.
My job is to guide you through the process and help you course-correct when necessary so that you don't get lost in analysis paralysis, fear, or self-doubt.
