Going from Day Job to Dream Job as a Dad

Going from Day Job to Dream Job as a Dad

The Startup Dad Journey of Kary Oberbrunner

Kary left his day job to pursue his dream job”Igniting Souls. Through his writing, speaking, and coaching, he helps individuals and organizations clarify who they are, why they are here, and where they should invest their time and energy. The author of several books, Kary and his wife Kelly are blessed with 3 amazing children and live in Columbus, OH.

The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he’s always doing both. James A. Michener
Along This Journey We Discuss:
  • Being on fire in all aspects of you life
  • Developing an escape plan (Clarity, Competence, Confidence, Influence, Impact & Income)
  • How to bring your “dream job” closer to shore before you take the leap from you “day job”
  • Getting your spouse on board, and yes money is a factor!
  • If you build it they might not come: Kary shares how he wrote 4 books before he discovered the concept of “marketing before manufacturing”
  • How to create a “Framework” for your product and get paying customers/clients before ever creating it and in under 24hrs!

  • “You ask the question how did I tell my wife¦ I told her with money”
