My Story: 

You Can Do Work You Love!

I had been riding the crest of a wave with a successful career in recruitment and was only thinking about my next placement, until one day I had a moment that hit me and would change my thinking forever. I had a good friend call me in tears, frustrated with her life. She had a career she hated, she had no time for her family. She’d been talking about making a career change for years but didn’t make the leap because she just didn’t know how.

After learning about her pain I decided to do some research. I found out terms like “find your dream job”, “work life balance” are “career change” are searched tens of thousands of times per month.

​My name is Alex Wilson-Campbell. It’s likely that you’ve never heard of me before. I’m not famous and I don’t come from a wealthy line of successful entrepreneurs, I don’t have a degree in business and I didn’t even get great grades at high school. And yet these past ten years I purchased a quarter of a million dollar house near central London, launched online and offline projects that helped thousands of people find jobs and get their career on the right path.

I have thousands of online readers, email subscribers and social media followers who follow my blog and all this has happened in just the last five years. Now, I don’t share about this to brag, rather I want to bring clarity to exactly how I got here. But first let’s talk about a serious problem our generation is struggling with.

And What's The Problem I'm Referring Too?

Well, it’s the same problem that my friend is facing, as well as many others. Happiness, fulfilment and purpose. In a recent study, around 80% of people are dissatisfied with their life and unhappy at work. They work in a job that they dislike, their self-esteem and confidence is low, they’re unhappy and don’t make enough money. It’s pretty clear how we got here too.

Over the past 50 years we’ve studied hard at university with the impression that all we need to do is get a degree and a CV and we’ll find the career or business of our dreams. We then found ourselves in tens of thousands of dollars in debt with no plan B, or idea where we’re going to end up in the coming years and nothing more than a slim hope that we’re going to find our calling. Or at least find our happiness.

What's Stopping You From Changing Your Life?

But sadly many of us don’t. And we then start our own family with no idea how to guide them in their career and to set an example on how to cultivate a successful and happy life. I know that over 80% of you dislike your jobs. So if you’re not making enough money or you hate your job and you don’t feel like you’re in control, you’re not alone. But what’s stopping you from changing your life? Is it fear? Is it knowhow? 

That’s what it was for me just a few years ago. You see, my success didn’t happen quickly. And I slumped to my lowest ebb with redundancy, the pressure of bills to pay and my first child on the way ...And when I look back now I realise that I went from job to job with no plan as to where my career would take me, I had no one who had been there and done that, to help me along the way,I was short on confidence and relied heavily on recruiters which was a big mistake.

What's Your Focus?

But I began to reflect on my life, my values and the hundreds of people I’d helped to find their way in the world as well as my experiences and expertise. I knew it was time to make a small but significant change that would have a massive difference for a happier life for myself and my family .... Everything was coming into focus .....

I finally uncovered my strengths, passions with a determination to make a contribution to making a sustainable contribution to people’s lives. I used my marketing and recruitment skills and my support network (and no little perseverance) to help myself and generate numerous opportunities for work that actually meant something to me and, that I’d be proud to tell my children about.

But why am I telling you this? You see, just like I want my friend to love her life and have a career that she can be proud of, I want the same for you. The pain in her voice is a reality for thousands of people who are dissatisfied with their professional lives. And you know what, if you dislike your work, you often dislike your life. There is nothing that makes me more satisfied than knowing I make enough money to provide for my family..that I have the time to be a good father and that I have a career plan that will build mine and my children’s future. But the question that thousands of people per month are still asking is, “how do you get there?”

​Luckily, finding meaningful career path is easier than ever before. There are literally hundreds, if not thousands of people every day who are leaving their careers to chase their dreams and finally start work that they’re passionate about. And here’s where I can help. This is where I can personally join you on your journey. Over the past few years I began receiving at least one email per day asking me how to find a job they love. Now, while occasionally I would write back, it just became impossible to help everyone.

Because of this demand I wanted to create a programme that took everything I’ve learned over the last 15 years about figuring out your strengths, values and passions and turn it into an affordable, effective coaching programme. But I didn’t want to create one of these scam sites where people are sold a false reality. No, I actually wanted to create a programme and a curriculum that really worked.

Supported by my great Associates, I want to provide my students with the shortcuts, the blind spots and the wisdom that will literally save them thousands of hours in wasted time.
