How To Get A Purpose-Driven Job & Make More Money

“So, why do you want to be an accountant?” I asked a fellow student in college one day... RELATED: 5 Ways To Make More Money “They get a high salary," he replied. I gave a bit of a friendly laugh, and we moved on to the next subject. What I really wanted to say was: What the heck are you doing!? I didn’t want to tell him what to do with his life. It’s his choice, and his values. But a high salary is a sad thing to have it all come down to. I mean, money can pay for an enjoyable life. But if you’re going to spend 40+ hours a week doing something, shouldn’t it provide more than just money? The truth is that you can get more from work than just a big paycheck. You can love what you do. Contribute to a meaningful cause. Grow your skills. Have fun, and work with inspiring people. In fact, many people around the world already have this type of job. It’s called...


The New Purpose-Driven Job

In this article, I’ll show you a simple, proven way to get a purpose-driven job in as little as 30 days. It works so well because it’s a completely new approach that’s tailored specifically for purpose-driven companies. Now, these “purpose-driven companies” aren’t your typical corporation. They encourage and empower their employees. They have fun office environments, and unique benefits. They care about the environment, and have missions that make the world a better place. Purpose-driven companies are...

The Way Of The Future

In fact, there’s an entire list of them called the GameChangers 500. It was put together by a friend of mine, who is passionate about companies who make a profit as well as a difference… Mindvalley, an online publisher, is an excellent example of a Game-Changing company. They have a continued commitment to create the world’s best workplace (think Google-style)... and they’re well on their way. They’ve been featured at TEDX and in Inc. magazine, and have unique benefits - one of which is a 3-day team retreat on an exotic island.

Happiness Is The New Productivity

Mindvalley, and many other purpose-driven companies, believe that the happier you are, the more productive you are. The more productive you are, the more money the company makes… And the more money you make. This applies not just in that particular job, but throughout your entire life. See, when you’re working a purpose-driven job for a purpose-driven company... And doing something that makes you happy… AND you’re more productive… Then you’re essentially in a state of flow - becoming more valuable as you grow each day, and contributing more value to the world. And more value you contribute through your skill, effort, and uniqueness, the more money you make. And that’s how a purpose-driven career can lead to making more money - along with the benefits of doing what you love.

WAIT: Don’t Apply Just Yet…

Purpose-driven companies on the GameChangers 500 list aren’t your typical corporation. Traditional resumes and cover letters simply won’t work with them. They’ll take one look, and move on to the next thing. Instead, they’re looking for talented people willing to express their true strengths, passions, and skills in a unique and creative way. That could be through a YouTube video, blog, or website. It could be mailing a unique package to them, or, if you have the means, sending a hot air balloon with your proposal in it (like one person did to get the attention of Richard Branson). Once you understand how important their unique culture, values, and mission are to them, it’s not as difficult to make a good impression and prove you’re a fit. So, consider getting a purpose-driven job with a purpose-driven company. You’re likely to be more productive, happier, and make more money. And if you’d like more help understanding what makes these types of companies tick and how to get their attention, then check out the free video I put together with the founder of the GameChangers 500. It’ll help you take the next step towards your purpose-driven job. It’ll help you take the next step towards your purpose-driven job. This post was originally published at an earlier date.

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.
