Oprah’s ‘O’ Magazine posed the following cover story question in the November 2010 issue: “What is your true calling?” Well, these Inspirational Blasts are a response to that question. It’s one I’ve considered long and hard. In shifting gears professionally over 13 years ago, I went through a period of self-discovery and career re-assembly that at times felt like pulling and re-arranging teeth. But in a more practical sense was like giving birth to twins; one named professional calling, the other true calling. At a glance they may look identical but are really not the same. Taken together, they give life real meaning.

There’s no easy answer to the question but there is a right answer that will be made known to each of us. As you consider all the factors for making life work, be mindful of living-out your life’s worth. This will position you as an eyewitness to deeply cherished moments and a living witness to your peers, friends and family. Some people have come to know me as an Author/Speaker, Blogger and Dreampreneur. That’s because I employ my professional calling as an authority on reinventing your career, starting a business and living your dreams at www.JoetoCEO.com. However, my true calling allows me to deliver “vocation inspiration.”

So, in a nutshell, that’s the story of my life. My thanks to you for sharing this time and space together. We’ll see each other down the road sometime, maybe even meet-up at the coffee house, lunch counter or dinner social.
