Whether you are looking on your own, or are forced into it, there are certain steps you can take to find a more fulfilling career.

Click the player to listen to podcast episode #1056 of The BIGG Success Show. Below is a summary of our discussion…

Our show today is inspired by the movie, Larry Crowne.

Here’s the storyline:

Larry, played by Tom Hanks, was a superstar team leader at a big-box company where he’s worked for over 20 years. He gets called to the office, where it’s expected that he will be recognized as “Employee of the Month” again, but instead, he is told that due to a company policy change with management, he was being let go.

His bosses said that his lack of a college degree would prevent him from moving any further up the ladder. Larry had enlisted in the Navy as a young man and started working for the store after his service was over.

As a middle-aged man, he finds it hard to get hired. Deep in dept with a mortgage and unclear on what to do, Larry heads to his local college to start over.

Let’s go to The Professor’s Whiteboard for 3 tips for a more fulfilling career.

On The BIGG Success Show today, we were pleased to be joined today – all the way from Australia – by Peita Diamantidis (@peitamd on Twitter). She is the Co-Founder of Caboodle Financial Services and sidekick at Zaptitude.

She’s also a self-described financial maths nerd and movie geek. We spoke with her about her fantastic book, Finance Action Hero*.

For you fellow film buffs, we’ve never seen a book about money with so many movie mentions!

So do you want to be a Finance Action Hero? Then listen to the show and you’ll discover:

  • the key differentiator between somebody who succeeds and someone who doesn’t
  • the good news about how you succeed financially
  • what you can learn from watching kids and adults at the beach
  • the reason so many people miss out on their adventure of a lifetime
  • how great coaches get their team to win in spite of the odds
  • the two things to do when you’re feeling financially overwhelmed
  • why high-performing athletes don’t focus on their strengths
  • the surprising mistake many people make: calling in the experts too soon
  • why you should not have a Rainy Day Fund (and what you should do instead)

We thank Peita for sharing her time and wisdom with us. And we highly recommend her book to you.

The book is like having a conversation with Peita. She’s removed all the financial jargon so it’s easy for anyone to understand. It’s fun, yet incredibly informative. You, too, can be a Finance Action Hero!
