You know what you hate, don’t want, and won’t tolerate at work. Now how do you find a better job and career path, that you know is right? Here’s how.

MISTAKE #3: You are focused on JUST GETTING OUT OF THERE!!

You don’t care what you do next, you just can’t stay here.

It makes no difference, you just need to make the same amount of money, and find a place without those people who are making your life a living Hell!

Yet, you can’t seem to find anything else. Definitely not a place that will pay you more.

Focusing on what you don’t want, just brings more of it.

Plus, you are missing out on the Absolute Key to getting your dream career.
