118: How client Jaymie Fillebrown landed a job that merged her passions + negotiated a 15% raise
Think "following your calling" will require you to take a pay cut and waste all your past experience? THINK AGAIN! Before working together, Jaymie was burnt out in her software engineering job. Her old sense of being a bright high-achiever had been worn down over the years into a lack of motivation that spurred her to the realization that it was time to make a change. Her story is one of God showing up in the biggest and seemingly impossible ways in the career story you get to hear today. In this episode, you’ll hear Jaymie share: How she went from majoring in education, to becoming a software engineer, to wishing she could be a teacher but knowing she couldn’t because of the income she needed to make for her family and other life circumstances God called to her - then to the crazy moment when God made it all work and provided in spades Her story of learning NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GOD - Just ask and pair your prayers with strategic action The honest fears and doubts that came up along the way Why she almost didn’t work with me, but why she’s glad she did Details about how she got through a technical interview she didn’t know all the answers for How she negotiated her salary for the first time and landed an unprecedented 15% pay raise within her company And what it was about The Calling Academy that made a difference with it all Go send Jaymie some love on LinkedIn after you listen to this episode! I can't wait to see what God does with the rest of her career. ------------------------------------------------- ✅ Want to land a new, purposeful job in the next 3-6 months?

103: I witnessed a miracle. Here's the story + lessons it taught me
Eeek. At the risk of sounding crazy or sharing vulnerable details, I need to give credit where credit is due: God showed me a miracle this week in a moment that really tested my faith, and I'm sharing it in the hopes that it's what you need to hear. This is a longer episode, but if you stick around until the end, the last part might be most important of all. This is the truth behind why I do what I do. Sincerely, Kelsey

101: The one thing I WISH I knew before trying to get a job or start a business [Ecclesiastes 11]
Oh man. I came across Ecclesiastes 11:1-6 this morning and thought: "THIS WOULD HAVE RESOLVED SO MUCH AGNST AND DISAPPOINTMENT if I had memorized this before trying to get a new job or start my business!" Because this passage perfectly sums up a life-changing lesson we often forget: Trying to predict the shortest path to success is often a waste of time. We don't know what God is going to work through. Just take faithful action and trust that God will probably surprise you with what ends up working out.

97: Networking | Scared to bother people? Click to hear the 5 reasons you don't have to be
I’m recording this episode to (hopefully once and for all) give you the PEACE and confidence you need to finally reach out to people who can make a huge difference in your career! Because the fact is, so many of us hold back from reaching out to people in companies or careers we admire, just because we’re worried about bothering them, annoying them, being pushy, or "using" them to achieve your goals. To me this is so sad, because the reality is that, as long as you take the obvious and simple steps to just make sure you’re respectful of their time, you aren’t bothering them at all! In fact, there are at least FIVE perspective-shifting truths about networking that, when I share these with my clients, they (100% of the time) take a big breath, relax their shoulders, and have a big smile of relief spread across their face as they say, “Ah. Gosh. Wow. That makes so much sense. Ok! This really isn’t a big deal! I can do this!” Then it’s so rewarding to see them go from taking little to no action, overthinking everything, worried as can be - to actually feeling totally free and excited to network to their way into an incredible career. It’s so freeing! So. Today I’m going to share these 5 perspective-shifting truths to help you excitedly move forward with networking, knowing that you’re not bothering anyone you’re reaching out to - in fact (!) you’re actually honoring them, giving them a chance to feel fulfilled as they help someone in a spot they were once in themselves, and in some cases, you might even be HELPING them by reaching out! Sound crazy? It’s not. Tune into this episode to hear the 5 reasons someone will be happy to pick up your call. ------------------------------------------------------ ✅ Join the Job Offer Accelerator waitlist!

95: The 10 life-changing benefits of networking (BESIDES getting your resume passed on to hiring managers)
Why do most people get sweaty palms when thinking about networking? Because they reduce it to a series of favors to just get your resume passed on to someone who can give you a job. No wonder they feel like networking is disingenuous, pushy, fake, and manipulative! The good news? There’s not only a different way to go about networking that will save you from feeling fake and manipulative, but there’s AT LEAST 10  lesser-known (but way more important) reasons to network, other than just getting your resume passed on to a potential employer. The 10 benefits I share in this episode, not only serve as 10 reasons for why you should start making connections, but they can also be translated into meaningful questions you can ask the person you’re talking to in these networking conversations. Btw, make sure to stick around until the very end, because you might find my last points especially surprising! Happy networking!

Today I’m joined by my friend, Eduardo Zaldivar, a venture capital and private equity investor who has humbly and boldly achieved great heights in his career early on for the glory of God and the good of others. Eduardo has worked in Consulting, at a Startup, and is now in Venture Capital and Private Equity before headed to school next fall for a joint Stanford MBA and Harvard Masters in Public Policy program. My favorite thing about Eduardo is that he is truly passionate about lifting up others in mentorship and encouragement to help them achieve their own highest goals. This episode is full of thought-provoking wisdom and practices you can implement to fulfill your own definition of success in your life and career. While this episode is full of advice you can learn from, I think it’s even more powerful to simply witness Eduardo’s example as a Christ-follower who isn’t driven to “succeed” for is own sake, but rather to uplift others materially and relationally. I know you’ll be inspired by Eduardo’s exceptional perspective, humility, and purpose in behind his hard work, which he pursues with a sense of calling.

84: ACCOUNTANTS - What to Do if You’re Dissatisfied in Your Career | A Former Client’s Turnaround Story from Public Accounting to being a Director of a Startup
Hey accountants - we see you! This week's guest, Megan McGinnis, and I BOTH began the first two years of our careers working for two of the "Big 4" Public Accounting Firms. Megan was in Audit and I was on the advisory side of the business in Tech Consulting. We know that, especially if you've worked SO hard to earn your master's degree and take your CPA exams, it can be ESPECIALLY difficult to consider leaving the field to "start over" in a new one if you're feeling dissatisfied. That's why Megan came on the show to share her crazy encouraging story of reclaiming hope, excitement, and peace in her career after making a HUGE pivot this summer! In less than 6 months, Megan: 1) Went through the career coaching process with me and discerned the new path she was called to pursue 2) Left accounting and started a fully booked out business as a Virtual Assistant 3) Was taken on as a full-time employee by one of her Start Up clients, where she now serves as the Director of Operations! In this episode, Megan shares: - Advice on how to know if it’s time to leave - How to know if you should just work as an accountant for a different company vs. switch career paths altogether - Practices you can use to make your time in accounting more life-giving if you’re feeling called to stay, even if for just one more busy season - Words of comfort and wisdom if you’re worried about “sunk cost” or wasting your accounting experience if you choose to switch career paths - I also share my prayer for you and your career at the end of the episode! Enjoy!! P.S. In the episode, I mentioned that Megan is a licensed CPA. I forget to mention that she's technically just a CPA candidate as her application is still pending in the Covid slow-down! *s/o to all you detailed-oriented accountants who read the fine print* haha ------------------------------------------------------ ⚡️Apply for Career Coaching: Schedule a free, 30 min consultation with me to assess how career coaching can help you identify your true calling and land the exact job that will pay you to fulfill it: Learn more and apply at www.kelseykemp.com/coaching ------------------------------------------------------ 👯‍♀️Let’s Connect!

82: My prayer for the person who feels scared to dream or has a hard time envisioning what they really hope for
Isn't it funny how "dreaming" can be hard sometimes? It's easy for our brains to demolish a fun thought with, "Well, that's not really possible, so there's no use thinking about it." Even as a dreamer/imaginative type, I fall into this trap all the time! But the truth is, our imaginations are GOD-GIVEN! It's a good and faithful thing to open your mind and ask God, "What are the exciting and meaningful things you'd like me to experience, create, and be a part of?" This is especially powerful in the context of your career! That's why I recorded this prayer: To ask God to give you freedom from any fears, doubts, and limiting beliefs that might be holding you back from experiencing the gift of dreaming big. Because when you dream with God and open yourself to the possibility of being obedient to step out in good, God-given dreams - who knows what could happen in your life and career!? 🙏🏻 As always, feel free to let me know how I can be praying for you specifically by messaging me on Instagram at @kelsey_thecalledcareer ------------------------------------------------------ ⚡️Apply for Career Coaching: Schedule a free, 30 min consultation with me to assess how career coaching can help you identify your true calling and land the exact job that will pay you to fulfill it: Learn more and apply at www.kelseykemp.com/coaching ------------------------------------------------------ 👯‍♀️Let’s Connect!

You’ll get to hear Brianna’s story of how her 10 year career as a professional track and field athlete, traveling for competitions all around the world, gave her an idea that would lead to her next purpose-filled career move.

Her pivot included a two year venture into corporate America and another few years of hard work before her business idea became a fully built-out reality. Dreams take work, and time, and grit, but doing what you love and honoring who you are can be so rewarding.

The Job Library | Missionary Overseas
Today’s podcast is a very special conversation with a friend who serves as a full-time missionary overseas! This is such a rich conversation, filled with wisdom and comfort in response to huge questions like: How do you really know when you’re called to do something? Particularly, how do you know if you’re really called to move to another country and share the gospel of Christ with a largely unreached people group? Is it fear and guilt talking, or is it God? HOW do you share the gospel with someone? How do you get over intimidating concepts like fundraising and overcoming the temptation to have a savior complex? How do you prepare yourself to move to another country? I know this conversation is about missions in particular, but it really felt like it was just about how to lead a faithful life as a follower of Christ, called to make disciples in all nations and in all sorts of ways. I know I'll be revisiting this episode again and again. I hope you savor this conservation as much as I did! ------------------------------------------------------ ⚡️Apply for Career Coaching: Schedule a free, 30 min consultation with me to assess how career coaching can help you identify your true calling and land the exact job that will pay you to fulfill it: Learn more at www.kelseykemp.com/coaching ------------------------------------------------------ 👯‍♀️Let’s Connect!

Today’s podcast topic is alllll about getting our thoughts (and terms) straight on some CRUCIAL aspects of your personal attributes. We are going to be talking about the EXACT difference between skills, strengths, talents, and gifts. Why? Because the sooner we move away from ambiguous, interchangeable terms to describe ourselves, the sooner we get clearer on exactly who we are and what we have to offer - and that kind of personal clarity can lead to anything from landing job offers (due to being an excellent communicator of your strengths) to understanding what job you're best suited for in the first place. So in this episode, I'll not only share exactly WHAT each of the terms mean, but HOW you can uncover what your personal attributes are in each of these categories, so you can utilize the heck out of what you're good at in your career. ------------------------------------------------------ ⚡️Apply for Career Coaching: Schedule a free, 30 min consultation with me to assess how career coaching can help you identify your true calling and land the exact job that will pay you to fulfill it: Learn more and apply at www.kelseykemp.com/coaching ------------------------------------------------------ 👯‍♀️Let’s Connect!
