On January 21st, I attended the CANNEXUS 14 Conference in Ottawa which brings together professionals in Career Counselling. My colleague Dragana and I presented the some of the leading edge work we do with our organization, World Skills, which is dedicated to integrating newcomers into Canadian Labour Market. I also participated in on the seminars by Ken Keis, an internationally known author, speaker, and consultant─ in the past 24 years, Ken has conducted more than 2500 presentations and 10,000 hours of consulting and coaching.
Ken’s work is very interesting to me as it is similar in many ways to the work with I do with myself and others – an approach which is driven towards helping people live their soul mission or purpose. His presentation reinforced that there is a high percentage of people who are unhappy with their jobs, which anecdotally is true from my experience. At the end of Ken’s presentation, I did a quick two-minute interview with him.
My question to him was, “Why do you think that we don’t live our life purpose?”
Listen to this quick video to hear his answer and what got him motivated to living his purpose.

Why do we not invest in ourselves?
TuneIn to the clues which life wisely nudges you towards. StepUp and invest in yourself to grow and live your soul mission.
