Multi-Passionate Must-Haves sale ends today – FOREVER! (Duh Duh DUH!)


mpmh2015

The 3rd Annual Multi-Passionate Must-Haves sale ends at midnight Pacific today and I have to remind you about it in big, bold letters!

About, oh, 100% of my clients would classify themselves as being multi-passionate (and I do, too!), so there’s a good chance that you, dear reader, resonate with having a lot of different interests, passions, and projects on your plate.

While most of the world tells us to “Pick One Thing”, we know that we thrive with variety and always seem to want to learn something new. And that’s why Multi-Passionate Must-Haves was created in 2013 – to scratch our learning itch and not break the bank doing it!

26 courses, audios and ebooks – worth $1,730! – that help you to integrate your many passions into your life, are yours for just $97 until midnight. That includes my EXCLUSIVE product, Find Your Career Compass, along with products from Jennifer Lee, April Bowles Olin, Mayi Carles, Cory Huff, Leonie Dawson, and so many other multi-passionate rock stars.

Grab your copy of Find Your Career Compass (& 25 other products!) at the 3rd Annual Multi-Passionate Must-Haves Sale!


I’ve been teasing ya for a while about this, but I can now let the cat out of the bag!

In 1 short week, the 3rd Annual Multi-Passionate Must-Haves sale will be kicking off, and I created a brand new workbook for it.

career_compass1

Find Your Career Compass will help you clarify and articulate what makes you unique, why you’re valued, and what you want to be known for in your field. Then, you’ll use these foundational pieces to create your career compass and put yourself back in control. You can use your career compass internally to guide you to make the right decisions, as well as externally to speak to your manager and/or clients, make connections, update your cover letter, and more. And lookit! The image above gives ya a peek into my upcoming rebrand!

I based this e-book on a recent workshop I gave of the same name this winter.

Watch Create Your Dream Career for free this weekend!


Screen Shot 2015-04-07 at 10.57.15 AM

I just got a heads-up that Create Your Dream Career will be rebroadcasted on CreativeLive this weekend, from 9am Pacific on Saturday 4/11 through about 8:30am Pacific on 4/12.

I’m super excited for this rebroadcast since those of you with traditional jobs don’t have to worry about sneaking over to the site on company time to watch the class. You can watch from the comfort of your own home, pjs encouraged!

Here are some reviews of the class that I swear I didn’t pay for:

“(…)the class really opened my eyes to the possibilities of having the career of my dreams, and being able to truly love what I do every single day.”

“Michelle’s course put me back on track into guiding me towards my goals. Her course curriculum is actually broken down into a very logical way, but she’s so energetic and fun you don’t feel like you’re in this boring classroom setting.”

“Michelle Ward is truly inspiring, best course I’ve ever taken through Creative Live!”

“(Michelle’s) enthusiastic, kind personality really shines through each of the lessons.

It’s the debut of Grown Up Gigs – the podcast!


I just couldn’t help myself.

I just had to bring my Grown Up Gigs interview series to the podcast airwaves, and the first two episodes are available to listen to on iTunes right now!

It’s my 5th Entrepreneuriversary today, and it’s such a big way for me to celebrate.

Grown Up Gigs: freelance Creative Director Luke Ward

The first episode features a talk with my husband, who is celebrating his 2nd freelance anniversary (no, he does not wanna say “freelanceiversary”) this month. I wanted to shine a light on what it’s like to be a dual-entrepreneurial household, and how we make it work while, um, paying a mortgage in Brooklyn and making sure our child is fed and clothed.

You’ll also hear some background on me and why this series is so near and dear to my heart. It’ll feature a new segment called, “THAT’S a Career?”, where I showcase some “crazy” business ideas that grown-ups do for work.

Dream Careers Made Tangible


Dream careers made tangible

It’s hard to think of anything that excites me as much as seeing my clients take all the puzzle pieces of their dream careers and turn them into something tangible.

Whether it’s while we’re working together or years later (do you know I’ve been The When I Grow Up Coach since ’08, and full-time since ’10?!), it doesn’t matter: I do the biggest of happy dances.

Two recent former clients in particular made me wanna shout their new businesses and recent offers from the rooftops, and I realized I should reach out to all my former clients to ask what I can put in the spotlight for ’em.

Now, I have a few hundred former clients, so I’m glad they didn’t all respond (can you imagine the length of that post?!), but here’s the excitement from those who did:

New York magazine and a New York-based workshop


Did ya see that I was in this past issue of New York magazine?

I’ve been dying all day to get my hands on today’s copy of New York Magazine. My Kindle hasn’t refreshed with it, my issue has yet to arrive, & my local newsstand said they never got it today. Thankfully, Luke snagged a copy tonight & sent me this pic. I have yet to read the article & it won’t be online until next week…but I’m SO damn proudcited about this.

A photo posted by Michelle Ward (@whenigrowupcoach) on

I did happy dances all over social media about it, but held off happy dancing here ’cause I was told it’d be about a week ’til the article would be put online.

Thankfully, that week is up and you can read about what we give up when we become “freedom-seeking, self-determining, autonomous entrepreneurs” right here.
