Finding Happiness: Career Coach to Share Advice at Library

If you’re feeling stuck and unhappy in your life and work, career coach Gia Ganesh wants to help with a new seminar entitled “Finding Happiness in a Noisy World: What it Takes to Lead a Happy and Fulfilling Life” on Tuesday, March 22 at 6:30 p.m. at the Sharon Forks Library, 2820 Old Atlanta Road, Cumming.

“In this seminar, we’ll talk about what is holding you back from feeling happy in life and how to overcome the common obstacles to happiness,” says Ganesh.

She should know. Ganesh went through a period of career burnout and unhappiness herself. She went down a traditional educational and career path, working in large companies for fifteen years.

“Outwardly, I had a great job title, benefits and perks. But inwardly, I felt restless and, at times, empty. I knew there was something more, but could not figure it out,” Ganesh says.

Ganesh studied and earned two masters degrees, an MBA from Georgia Institute of Technology and an MIS from Kennesaw State University, in an effort to find a perfect career fit. She worked in several positions from project management to management consulting and finally found that helping people develop in their lives and careers was her best career fit.

But a corporate consulting job wasn’t the best place for her to do that work, so Ganesh struck out on her own. Now, as a career strategist and coach, Ganesh helps her clients with career guidance and planning. She helps clients design an intentional career path that can help them feel rejuvenated, connected, and happy in their life and work.

During the seminar, Gia will discuss seven common things that derail happiness and how happiness-enhancing habits can counteract those feelings. Ganesh will also provide guidance and action steps for meeting personal and professional expectations.

Admission to the seminar is free, but advance registration is requested.
