Episode #38 - Client Spotlight: How Dr. Jae Sevelius Went From Stuck & Comfortable to Making an Empowered Career Move


We’ve been raised to follow prescribed ideas of our career paths. Go to a good school, get your degree, get in with a great organization, climb that ladder to its highest heights and then retire. But like so many who follow that path, they often abandon any ideas of doing worth that expands their mind, fuels their passion, positions their authority, aligns with their life and values, and brings genuine fulfillment and happiness. Today on the podcast, my client Dr. Jae Sevelius shares how they took control of their career and made an empowered career move.


In this episode of the Midlife Career Rebel Podcast, you'll discover…


  • Why trying to find “career distractions” won’t get you career fulfillment.
  • Why repeating your old success formula won’t get you what you want.
  • How the self-discovery process opened Jae up to greater opportunities.
  • How they found an aligned position that valued all they had to offer.
  • How the Career Rebel Academy gave them the tools and courage to say yes when the universe opened doors for them.
  • Why having a coach is so critical to growing and developing in your career.
  • That leveling up requires you to move out of your comfort zone.
  • Advice for those considering the Career Rebel Academy.
