let me ask you…

Does any of this sound familiar?

“When we are younger we all have visions of running and controlling our own lives, but I feel like mine is being run for me by something/someone else.”

“I’m too afraid to open my bucket list - I’d see how little progress I’ve made.”

“I find myself constantly fantasizing about quitting, not having to do this anymore.”

“I start to worry I’m being so unreasonable and that whatever I would do next would likely provide similar obstacles. Do I need to make some concessions [on my dreams]? That thought depresses me even more…”

“It’s exhausting. To make matters worse, it’s my lone source of income. How else can I do all the things I do well, make money in the process without constantly feeling like I’m hustling, climbing the corporate ladder?”

“I wake up most days with a lot of anxiety and little motivation.”

“Whats stopping me from getting there?…I don't know where 'there' is”

…if so then you’ve stumbled into the right place.

Here’s some stuff that can help:

  1. Check out the Transformation Summer Series (TSS) on the blog: https://www.charleskunken.com/blog?category=Transformation

    This will give you some foundational things to bring you the awareness you need to start climbing out of that hole.

  2. SUBSCRIBE to the Friday newsletter: charleskunken.com/subscribe

    I send an email to my people every Friday with my #hottakes from working in finance at Amazon, along with a link to the new post. It’s there to inspire and make you curious.

or…Give me a call

I’m serious

After writing the first few posts of the TSS I began jumping on phone calls with some of my peeps who said it was resonating and we just began hashing out their particulars and talking through some ways they could begin figuring the way out of their rut.

I love this puzzle, more than anything. It’s why wake up at 4 or 5 in the morning and write about it for the blog.

The way I see it, the more people I can talk to about what’s keeping them up at night out there in the real world, the better I can hone my ability to serve.

People ask me if I am ‘trying to be a life coach’. The answer is definitely not. I give away my ideas for free and always will. My best stuff is always out there for anybody who wants it.

(I am writing a children’s book though with my wife, so go check that out, lol: goodbaby.band/kidsbook )

Anyways, if you’ve read this far I know I can help.

Got nothing to lose. Hit me up.

aight lata,
