The 4 step process included in the book

Who am I to write a book about finding passion in your career and life?

Picture of the author, Steve Van Remortel

I was no different than you.

I spent 35 years of my life searching for more. I was on an aimless pursuit, resulting in a life absent of meaning and fulfillment. And I can imagine you feel some of those same things.

That’s why you’re here.

Like so many of us, I left high school with no clue as to what I wanted to do the rest of my life. I went to college because that’s what my siblings did.

But without a passion leading me in my studies, I got a stellar first semester GPA of a 2.2.

Way to go Steve…

I decided to keep going for another semester. Because I was working two jobs, I decided to take a night course. And that is when everything changed.

The teacher started talking about business strategy and it sat me straight up in my chair. It was almost like the room went from black and white to color. That was it.

Business strategy was my passion.

After that day I completely transformed as a student. I graduated with high honors and got a successful sales job. Everything was going perfect, or at least I thought.

The issue I now faced was that I didn’t know what to do with my passion. It was like being on a boat with a strong motor, but with no steering wheel to direct it. That was until I took my first behavioral science assessment.

After taking the assessment, I was in for a rude awakening. It was the first time in my life that I started to truly understand who Steve was. The strengths and weaknesses.

That assessment opened the door for to finally do something with my passion.

Once I fully realized my behavioral strengths and limitations, I then was able to wrap that around my passion for business strategy. It was not easy at all. But it led me to where I am now, a strategy and talent advisor, speaker, and author.

It even led me to starting my own consulting firm, which just hit 20 years!

That breakthrough of wrapping my strengths around my passion has provided me a fruitful and meaningful life. And that same transformation is available for you.

Because you already have the two ingredients needed. You simply need to become aware of them. And that’s what this book and process will do for you.

It won’t provide you with some hack or trick to make millions and retire early. It will use who you are (your strengths) and what fires you up (your passions) to create a career plan to love what you do, deliver it naturally, excel at it, and get rewarded for it.

And then using the life map provided in the book to make your career plan a reality and live the life YOU want.

If you are ready to become passionate about your career and find meaning in your life, read this book. The time is now to start writing a new story.
