S2-Warning: If you don’t do this reality check, you may get fired


Thurs 07th March 7pm GMT

From Stage 2 (S2) of the Passion Pays journey: Build Your Expertise, Naturally

Have you ever wondered what would happen to you if you lost your job? Whether you’re working for yourself or for someone else, whether it’s your clients or your boss keeping you working, our current world of work does not guarantee that they will still keep you tomorrow. This is the illusion of security I refer to in my book Passion Pays. Gloom picture, I know. But if you perform a strong reality check, you can make the right adjustments before it’s too late and you can feel confident about your present and your future.

This is exactly what we are doing in this week’s episode. In the previous episode, we worked on being clear on what you really want, and such clarity will make things easier here.

Join me with guest, career coach Meera Shah (see her details below) in this pratical, yet fun-filled episode on Thursday 07th March 2013 at 7pm GMT. Meera and I are giving 3 specific exercices to give you the best chance to, not only keep your job, but most importantly to be confident of your own abilities to get the job that you want.

S1- Get clear on what you really want in 5 mind-blowing steps

man in middle of questionsFri 1st & Sat 2nd Mar 2013 7pm GMT

From Stage 1 (S1) of the Passion Pays journey: Understand Your Passions, Fundamentally

Many people don’t know what they want or they want much less than they deserve. But if you don’t even allow yourself to find out what you really want, you don’t stand much chance of getting it.  How can you ask for what you want if you don’t know what it is? How can you convince yourself or anybody else if you don’t have the clarity that comes with your determination?

In the first (much anticipated and much belated!) episode of the new Get Passionate Radio show, we are addressing the soul-searching question: “What (on earth) do I really want to do (with my life)?”

In this two-part episode, I lay out the 5 steps that I applied to go, in  one week, from a blurry idea and uncertain future I couldn’t even formulate, to finding 3 helpers, 4 strategies, a list of role models and a roadmap to carry out my vision. If you want similar or better results about the next steps in your career, you do not want to miss this episode. You can listen to part 1 here and part 2 here.

If I tell you Jaws, what tune comes to your mind? In fact if you hear that tune even while walking in the forest, you’ll be turning round, automatically scared of the shark coming at you!

What is the main obstacle now facing art students? How can an artist brush off critism and rejection? How can you get into art galleries? We all know about the “starving artist”.

Leaving art school with a degree in 3D design, Nikki was a Goldsmith/Designer Jeweller before making a leap into advertising (Young & Rubicam) and film and tv set design (BBC).

She is also in the collection of Freshfields Bruckhaus Derringer and is represented by Cricket Fine Art, London, where she will showcase a solo gallery exhibition “Fierce Friends” from 25th Sept to 06th October 2012.
