Turn Your Career Into a Calling

Do you see your career as just a job? Just a way of making money? Something that keeps you from doing what you really want to be doing with your life?

If you can see your career as a calling, it can become a positive expression of you, an integral part of who you are and an opportunity for you to make your world a better place.

When I started Proforma in 1978, I just saw it as a way to own my own business and make money. The truth is that even in 1986 when we started franchising, I just saw our affiliate model as a method for business growth.

However, over the years I have come to realize that Proforma is a calling for me. We have the honor of helping hundreds of people who trust us with one of their most important dreams—the dream of owning their own successful business. I have come to see that the trust others put in me and Proforma to help them accomplish their dreams is a sacred obligation and a wonderful opportunity for me to positively impact the lives of thousands of people.

It is incredibly rewarding for me any time an affiliate owner approaches me at an event, gives me a big hug and thanks me and Proforma for changing their life. Today, I am mightily blessed to experience my career as a calling.

You can enjoy the same experience. Let me encourage you to look at your career and think about all the people you are positively impacting including:

  • Customers and clients that you are helping to brand and promote their business
  • Employees that you are managing to grow their own career and provide for themselves and their loved ones
  • Suppliers with whom you interact and have the opportunity to be a positive impact in their lives
  • Your loved ones who are relying on your for their own dreams

See your career as a calling and enjoy the experience of leaving a positive impact on the lives of others while making your world a better place.
