Networking Breakfast: Identify Your Life's Core Purpose with Jeff Pelletier

Hi Friends - this is an event I will be ATTENDING. Please join me!

I joined the Mount Olivet Career and Calling Leadership Committee earlier this year to support people at any stage of their career with inspiration, fellowship and learning.

The September event is on “Finding Your Life’s Core Purpose” and it is one of those topics that is really great and applicable to everyone. We have an activity that will help you identify your two-word life’s purpose based on research from career coach Jeff Pelletier (, who will be there leading the conversation. I got early access to the activity and can’t tell you how energized it made me to be able to sum up my purpose in two words!

Key details:

Date: Wed. September 25th, 2019, 7:00am – 9:00am (feel free to leave early if you need to)
Location: Mount Olivet Church

Register in advance ($15 - includes a light breakfast):

Other notable details:

  • This topic is that it is about your whole life and you can lend whatever spin to your career that you want (aka all “careers” welcome).

  • While there is a religious affiliation, you can pretty much guarantee anything I’m involved in to be “religion light”.

  • Everyone is welcome. You can even invite your spouse if you want to. ;)
