& Happiness

A paycheck rarely engages the heart. Your heart is engaged when you’re in a job that not only pays the bills, but also emphasizes the passions you have, capitalizes on the strengths you bring, and aligns with the values you hold. But even when you are not currently working in your dream job, what you do with where you are is a key step in the right direction.
