Designing Your Encore Career – Locating the SA-WEET Spot!

I think we each have a personal sweet spot as well. It’s the state of mind in which we experience the most joy and satisfaction in being ourselves. And from that place of pleasure and joy in being ourselves, energy arises to flow out into our day bringing with it the depth and resonance of our own beingness, bringing with it blessing. ~ David Spangler

I love sweets. I’ve had an incurable sweet tooth since I was a kid. And so when I find something I love I’m likely to say…SA-WEET!!! Like NO KIDDING!

I’ve been saying it a lot the last few weeks since reading The Big Shift by Marc Freedman. Here’s why…

I found out that what I’ve been coaching about for the past 10 years has a name. Who knew?

It’s called an Encore Career.  SA-WEET! Like NO KIDDING! Even the video I created last year alludes to it – I just didn’t know about the terminology used in the book. (You can watch the video to the left of this post.)

I found out that the components of an Encore Career are what I’ve been talking about all along!

  • Finding your joy in work that lights you up and gives you a reason to jump happily out of bed every day. (Passion)
  • Doing work based on what you love fulfills you and serves and blesses others. It gives you and them a GREAT experience. (Purpose)
  • Getting paid to do what you love is the gravy. (A Paycheck)


I found out that when Passion, Purpose, and a Paycheck® come together, it’s called convergence.

I call it the SA-WEET spot.

And now you can too! Like NO KIDDING!
