Event Overview

It's hard to have a spectacular life if your work isn't great.

How many of us have just fallen into our careers? Probably a lot. How many of us then end up feeling stuck in the very careers we fell into in the first place?  Probably a lot.

This workshop is about finding your happy work and your spectacular lifewhatever that means for you.  It’s about getting really intentional (somewhere between mindful and meticulous) about your career plan, in a decidedly unboring way.

We have a specialized knowledge about the way work works and in our time together we’ll help you map out the start of a path that meets you where you are today – whether that’s highly motivated or mired in mediocrity, bold + brave or scared + stuck, highly self-aware or completely ignorant to what you really want.

What you can expect from this experience:

Minimum age

All ages welcome

What's Provided

Wine & beer (oh, and Work + Life Planners and copious amounts of fudge brownies, too)

What You Can Expect From This Experience
  • Self awareness and discovery of what matters to you and why it matters
  • What you absolutely can’t compromise on in your career
  • Clarity + direction + inspiration
  • Unbridled fun

As a proud workaholic, John Philbin has always known how important it is to love what you do, to wake up every morning and find joy, challenge and passion in the work you do for the world. As the founder of Happy Spectacular, he wants to bring that enthusiasm for work to other people and stop talking about our work and our life like they are two separate things. When his ADD lands on work, he can be found coaching, writing and spreading the word about Happy Spectacular. Perhaps what is more relevant is that John has his Ph.D. in psychology from Loyola University, Chicago and has been working in management consulting and executive coaching at the last company he founded with some of the world’s most respected companies.

Jodi Wellman is a co-founder at Happy Work Spectacular Life, which means she’s happy if and when others are happy in life– especially through work that has the power to take one’s breath away (in a good way). When she isn’t baking brownies, Jodi is coaching, writing and developing Happy Spectacular experiences to rock your socks. Jodi is a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach with CTI and a Professional Certified Coach with the ICF– working with entrepreneurs, leaders, and individuals looking to get so, so much more out of life.

    John and Jodie are a great team, and by the end of the class I had a better idea of where I should focus my job search efforts.
