“Every so often along comes a book that feels more like a conversation with an old friend.

The questions keep coming, the sequence makes a lot of sense, the advice is priceless and the result is unexpected. It is well worth the read and the time invested.

This packed 97-page eBook will open up your body, mind, heart and soul to capture a uniquely personal “Sweet Spot” of career direction for you. Don’t let the playful title fool you. This is an in-depth piece of educational, self-reflective and self-assessment career material. It is loaded full of insights, exercises and inquiries to have you gain clarity around your ideal career where passion and joy can flow.

Here’s just some of the big things you are going to accomplish in this book:

  • You’re a working professional, manager, executive in transition, or entrepreneur wanting to direct your career in a fulfilling way, so you will be learning what really matters to you and where your real passions lie. The answers will become obvious as you work the exercises in this book.
  • Not so obvious is the idea that you will learn to look into yourself from different angles that you may have never considered before, yielding insights you’ve never had before, supporting you to consider avenues and directions you’ve never pursued before.
  • You are going to learn what makes you tick and fits for you in several different realms of your career existence: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
  • You are going to learn how to get out of your own way and your own mind to wake up to dormant areas of interest that have gone long untapped and unappreciated. (Did you know that “appreciate” means to grow in value?)
  • You are going to learn to find newness, giddiness, and renewed romance in your current career path, if it still authentically calls to you.
  • You are going to learn to allow entirely new career options and directions to become evident for you and will find support here and in related works for making those changes…no matter what your age or years of experience.
  • You are going to learn that you are not locked into anything you’ve done before but, rather, can use your past career experiences as wake-up calls and signposts to what you truly want.

And you will learn tons more along the way

Chapter 1 kicks off the book by distinguishing the elusive “S Spot” (Sweet Spot) of common ground where skills, play, and pay come together…so that you understand that it can happen, even for you.

Chapter 2 empowers you to take back control of your career, realizing that you need not be a victim to unfulfilling work but can call the shots…even here, even now.

Chapter 3 introduces The Four Pillars of Career Satisfaction—the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of your ideal work…so that you get into right work, right now for the right reasons.

Chapter 4 will help you sort out your ideal physical blueprint of career satisfaction…so that your body enjoys your work as much as any other part of you. The physicality of your career shapes how you interact with your work and the world around you.

Chapter 5 provides clarity around the mental aspect of your right work…so you’re dealing with ideas and issues in industries that light you up and have you truly engaged. A mind is a terrible thing to waste…especially for 8 hours a day.

Chapter 6 explores the emotional dimensions of your career satisfaction…so that your heart is lifted up and you experience a “flow” in your workday. Actively choosing the emotions you want to experience gives you say over how your day goes.

Chapter 7 guides you toward discovering the spiritual element in your work…allowing you to generate and experience greater purpose and calling in what might otherwise be lackluster activities.

Chapter 8 inspires you to adopt a life’s mission of continually locating, landing and living in the Sweet Spot of Career Satisfaction, so your work becomes your greatest SELF expression.

Look, it’s kinda silly to give a guarantee on a digital eBook that you’ll already own and can’t return, but I’m so committed and convinced that you’ll get at least one career-altering nugget or nudge from this eBook (if not hundreds) that I want to give you a fabulous no risk guarantee.If for any reason you think my ideas are ridiculous and don’t work for you, simply let me know and I’ll refund your purchase price. More than fair?

Finding the S Spot playfully suggests insightful and clever ways of determining your next career move. As someone recently leaving undergrad, I would not have thought rigorously about my physical environment, for example, nor would I have united multiple job descriptins to create a new one of my own. Finding the S Spot is a useful tool on the path toward satisfying employment.”
—Camille Bridges, New Grad and Management Consultant

“I really think it’s brilliant how Darrell packed so much empowerment in such a few pages! I can’t think of anyone who would ready this book and not have it make a profound difference in how they look at their choices in life, especially pertaining to careers, and how they could not walk away feeling uplifted, re-energized, and inspired! BRAVO!! This will benefit so many people in so many ways, I will be shocked if this isn’t a bestseller.”
