What’s holding you back from furthering your career? From making that career change you’ve always dreamt of… starting that business or going out on your own? Why aren’t you asking your boss for that promotion? Continue reading “The First Step You Should Take Today”
There has been a lengthy silence here at Prepare to Tack. I will not apologize for that silence because, to put it bluntly, I’m not sorry. Not one little bit.
Yes, I offer career coaching services through Prepare to Tack, but that’s not really what this site is all about. Prepare to Tack is all about discovering and pursuing your passion, creating a life that you’ve always dreamed of.
I want to share with you the reason why I have been silent for a while. Continue reading “Turning A Dream Into Reality”
Are you unhappy with your career? Do you go home each day, feeling drained and like your life has become a broken record? Is something just not clicking with your job or your professional goals?

One of the things I really enjoy doing when I am not sailing is watching one of my favorite YouTube channels—Sailing SV Delos. Watching from the beginning, as these two Americans documented their sailing journey around the world, I have always taken notice of the challenges they face and the positivity they maintain as they tackle those challenges. It helps me to get excited about my next sailing adventure.
Now, you may wonder what a YouTube sailing channel has to do with Prepare to Tack and changing your career. YouTube, per say doesn’t have anything to do with it, but the people and their story actually have quite a bit to do with many of the things I share with you on how to create a career you’re passionate about. Continue reading “They were normal people—like you and me…”
Live aboard cruisers have a saying. It goes something like . . . “if you wait until the boat is perfect, you may never leave the dock.”
This saying can apply to many things in life. If you don’t take action, you will never move forward. Continue reading “Now or Never”

Do you hold back when it comes to investing in yourself and your dreams?
When you stop to think about it, you invest in things everyday. When you purchase a book online, you are investing in your knowledge and the author’s career. By changing the oil in your car, you are investing in your wheels and your ability to get from point A to B. When you purchase a new couch, you are investing in the aesthetics and comfort of your home.
So why is it so difficult to invest in yourself?
Are you longing for a life filled with passion, a meaningful career that works with the lifestyle you want for yourself? What’s holding you back from taking action and making it happen in this new year?
Is the busyness of the holiday season tempting you to put your new career change on the back burner?
Developing a new career can seem like a full load to take on, especially during the holiday season. Maybe you are working a full time job while developing your new career in the evenings and on weekends. Pile a lot of holiday expectations and events on top of that, and you may soon find yourself stressed out and a bit lost when it comes to what to do next.
As an American, this is the time of year that I tend to reflect on the people and things I am grateful for. There’s just something about expressing gratitude that makes me feel good. It seems to calm any stresses that are going on in my life, helps me focus on the positive things that are happening, and gives me a better outlook. Not only that, but it also motivates me. With that said, it begs the question, why do we only take time out for this once a year? And more importantly, why aren’t we practicing gratitude when it comes to our careers?
