It’s time to get some deeper insights from our guest, we have Isaac Morehouse. In this episode, Isaac and Christopher had a wonderful conversation on how to start or restart your career. They also talked about how to discover the right role for yourself, how to build the right skills to fulfill those roles and how to get the job of your dreams.
Crash Your Career
This is the most condensed version that Isaac came up with to get across the same mindset in a way of thinking about career launch. He is very passionate about helping young people so they don’t get left behind.
The way he processes his ideas is by talking and writing about them that helps him to put his visions of category designs into words.
“If I explain it, then maybe there’s a big chance that I can build it.” – Isaac Morehouse
This is the first step that we need to focus on in order to have a
legendary start. According to Isaac, they are focused on 3 things – discover
some roles, build a profile and tailor a pitch.
If you can do all those 3 things, it will get a lot easier and you can
have an amazing career launch.
“Paper credentials aren’t going to launch your career, you’ve got to be your own credential” – Isaac Morehouse
Unpacking the 3 Things
He compares the idea of, what do you want to be when you grow up to a
funnel. Every step in your life, you should be moving in that funnel and people
are being trapped because of this.
The perfect fit for you is probably something that doesn’t exist yet,
something that you have never heard of or hasn’t been invented yet. The way to
get to it is to start experimenting as you will learn by doing it.
“The only way to know what is a really good fit is to try anything that is not really a bad fit.” – Isaac Morehouse
