Description

Are you a big-picture thinker? Do you hate working on little details but thrive when working on large complex problems?

Big picture thinkers face specific challenges when looking for a fulfilling career. For once, they cannot "work their way up," as often by definition they are terrible at entry level or very detailed work. They also have a higher than average need to be creative and can get easily bored or distracted. They are visionaries, big problem solvers and can make great leaders.

Sounds familiar? If you feel stuck at work, or in your business, you might be a big picture thinker trying to do the work of a detail-oriented person. I wrote a blog post about this topic, see if it applies to you :)

Discover what to look for in your next career as a big picture thinker. Repurpose Your Purpose is a program to help you figure out what to do professionally and support you while you go for it! Founder Aurora Meneghello's career advice has been featured on CNBC, Glassdoor Blog, Bustle Magazine, and more.

ARE YOU READY TO MAKE A LIVING DOING SOMETHING THAT YOU LOVE?

No BS, no fluff, come ready to:

  • Learn how to find a fulfilling career that WORKS FOR YOU
  • LEARN FROM SUCCESSFUL CAREER CHANGERS who already took the leap - and landed successfully
  • EXPAND YOUR NETWORK

PANEL TALK + AUDIENCE Q&A + START EXPLORING YOUR OWN CAREER JOURNEY AS A BIG PICTURE THINKER:

  • What you absolutely need to have in your CAREER to feel fulfilled
  • Why most career ADVICE out there will not work for you - and what will
  • How to think BIG, instead of suppressing that side of you
  • Whether ENTREPRENEURSHIP is right for you

Meet and hear from big-picture thinkers who changed careers - leaving jobs that didn't feed their spirits to embark into professions or businesses that they love and feel passionate about.

Psst: This is NOT going to be your typical panel discussion

PARKING DETAILS: There is FREE parking at Phase Two - finding the parking lot can be a bit tricky if you have never been there before. I recommend you give yourself 15 min to find it - follow my detailed instructions.

Phase Two address is 5877 Rodeo Road, Los Angeles, CA 90016, parking is in the back.

To drive to the back of the Phase Two building, turn on Corbett Ave, off Jefferson Blvd. or La Cienega Blvd (depending on where you are coming from). As you drive down Corbett, you will see a sign that says 5877, turn in the little alley with the open gate.

See map and photos to help you find the place. Look for parking at the back of Phase Two first, and if you cannot find a space, head to the rooftop parking - see map. Someone will be outside to direct you to the rooftop parking if the primary lot is full.

If you get lost, find See's Candies on La Cienega, Corbett Ave is right next to it, see map and picture below.
