Starting a career and following until retirement used to be the societal norm. Today many find themselves wanting more, yet still held back by their own fears.
• Are you in a career that you now feel doesn’t effectively use your talents?
• Have you left a successful career after discovering your passions? What made you take the leap?
• Are financial restraints or fears holding you back from making a move to be happier?
• Do you think you aren’t capable of doing anything else? What steps could you or are you taking to change that?
• Is your family supportive of your desire to try something new?
If you are already working with an Editor at The Good Men Project, you can request them—or request me, J.W. Holland, and I will be happy to assist you. Please indicate that you are responding to this Call for Submissions.
Join the conversation at The Good Men Project. Here’s how:
The Good Men Project is different from most media companies. We are a “participatory media company”—which means we don’t just have content you read and share and comment on but it means we have multiple ways you can actively be a part of the conversation. As you become a deeper part of the conversation (Which really is “The Conversation No One Else is Having), you will learn all of the ways we support our Writer’s Community—community FB groups, weekly conference calls, classes in writing, editing platform building and more.♦◊♦
