As I recently shared on my other blog, my wife used to call me a “Sunday Jerk.”
Well, on Saturday I was fine. I was happy. But on Sunday, I could feel the weight of Monday morning building. I could sense the stress of the clock ticking as I got closer to returning to a job I didn’t feel called to do.
At first I thought it was just me, but then I started to talk to people and realized we’re becoming the “I’m, But,” generation. When I ask someone what they do, they tell me the same thing, “I’m a teacher, but I want to be an artist.” “I’m a customer call center representative, but I want to start a business.” “I’m a ________, but I want to be a _________.”
Across the country I heard that same story from people of all ages.
More than 80% of employees in the US want to change jobs.
College graduates face a 16.4% unemployment rate when they finish school.
People in their 50s are being forced to look for “encore careers” due to layoffs.
In order to provide hope and a plan for folks facing these situations, I wrote the book Quitter and started the Quitter Conference. This two-day event is a crash course in closing the gap between your day job and your dream job. When the last two conferences sold out, churches began to ask if we would take the show on the road.
After a conversation with Dave Ramsey, we realized the best thing to do is offer a simulcast of the entire event to churches like yours on September 21-22. (It starts on Friday at 6PM Central – 9PM and then Saturday 8AM – 4PM Central.)
If you’re familiar with my blog and book, Stuff Christians Like then you know the event will be a fun, honest, insight packed event. (With possible bouts of breakdancing from me.) Invite everyone from high school students to single adults and married couples. (It’s hard to find someone these days who is not in the middle of a career transition.)
You don’t have to be a tech genius to run the simulcast, we’ve got an entire team to help make it an incredibly easy experience. And whether it’s held in a Sunday School classroom or the sanctuary is up to you depending on how many folks you invite. Don’t miss this special event. If you’d like to bring the Quitter Conference to your church call 800-572-0375 or email us at [email protected].
p.s. Not a church, but still want to see the Quitter Conference? We’re live streaming the Friday night session. You can sign up here for an individual pass.
