Throughout our lives, our desires change so when it comes to careers, it should come as no surprise that we have multiple career possibilities and not just one given path.


The situation becomes even more interesting when you are committed to finding a career aligning with your life purpose so that your work reflects something meaningful to you.

So that brings up the question: How can you find a career that aligns with your life purpose and enjoy what you do in a whole new way?

The short answer is to take action by following these 3 steps:

1. Create a Life Purpose Statement
2. Actively Explore and Experiment with Different Roles (Embrace Change)
3. Evaluate Your Experiences 

This Session will show you how to do all three and reap the rewards of doing so.

Jeff has partnered with phenomenal organizations in addition to his corporate and private work to spread love, happiness, and spirit.

When it comes to reaching goals and living with purpose, many people and organizations fall short because of fears, worry, and self-doubt.


With Cultivate Courage, Dave Cornell helps you learn to move forward with courage so you can become more productive, more passionate, and more engaged in both your personal and professional life.


While some fears are rational, our irrational fears are the ones that trap us into a cycle of missed opportunities and regret… which doesn’t come cheap. The cost for businesses is overwhelming and the cost for individuals is heartbreaking.


Dave knows what it’s like to be hijacked by fear. When he and his wife both lost their jobs and their home during the financial crisis the fear and self-doubt were paralyzing.


Everything finally changed when there was no option but to dig deep and move forward despite fear-living with courage changed everything.


Dave Cornell has helped thousands of people find more success by learning to manage their fears and live with intentional courage.


Cultivate Courage is a dynamic, engaging, and transparent message which inspires and fosters change in a variety of ways including:


  1. Foster the thought patterns of highly successful people and quiet the self-defeating thoughts.

  2. Reframe your fears so you can overcome them or get them to work for you.

  3. Activate simple steps to start moving towards goals you thought were unattainable.
