‘What Am I Doing With My Life?’ is special for its honest simplicity. It is a collection of the probing questions, gentle nudges and positive affirmations one girl wishes she’d had to pave her own path to self-discovery, shared in the hope that journey might be made a little less intimidating for others. This is a book about learning to become your best and most contented self; it was written by one of the best and most beautiful souls I know.
I know because I’ve been there.
I got to the fourth year of a degree I hated before I realised what I was put on this earth to do.
After excelling in school, I was getting average marks at university and could never seem to find the motivation to study. I knew I had an incredible purpose, but I was beginning to doubt I would ever find it. I planned to stick out my journalism degree and hopefully find my way into the workforce in any job I could get. The idea of a 9-5 job made me sick to my stomach but all the voices I was hearing told me that success equaled hard work and struggle and I would just have to deal with it.
Around the same time I was battling anxiety and depression. I had panic attacks and days where I couldn’t get out of bed. I was terrified that I would wake up in ten years in a job that I hated but I had no idea how to stop it happening.
After two years of ignoring my passion and fighting an uphill battle against my creativity, I came to a place of deep pain, frustration and finally, surrender.
From there, I spent every waking moment researching education models, career pathways and studying the different roads to success of the most inspirational and influential people in our world today.
What I discovered completely changed my world and I just knew I had to share it.
Today, I’m a speaker, writer and life coach with an intense passion for helping people exactly like you find their purpose. I absolutely LOVE sharing the knowledge of my experience to help young people find out what lights them up and empowering them with the strength and skills to pursue their passion relentlessly.
My vision is a world where young people are empowered to discover their innate talents and abilities and encouraged to use them in the service of others to create a career that fulfils them and their purpose on this earth.
This book has done wonders for me and I can’t thank Jae enough for it. It is everything any young person needs in order to realise their true passion and calling in life. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to do but was held back by fear of failure. After working through the worksheets in this book I now know how possible it is for me to pursue my dream career and have my dream lifestyle. If you’re like me or if you have no idea at all what you want to do, your life will not be the same after reading this.
I downloaded your book this morning and just finished it and the worksheets. I LOVED IT! It was so relevant to me and the period of life I’m going through now. You’ve definitely opened my eyes and I feel like this is definitely going to help me next year and probably after then too.
From the Author
“Initially inspired by a TedTalk from the ineffable Ken Robinson, my eBook is designed to bridge the gap for students coming out of an education system that uses standardised testing to grade them based on one conception of academic ability, into a tertiary landscape that doesn’t always prepare them for the realities of a rapidly changing workforce. My hope is to inspire more students to think creatively when choosing a career, rather than trying to pigeonhole their skills and interests into an existing job in the marketplace. It is my deepest hope that by encouraging the creative use of their natural gifts combined with a keen interest in social enterprise, we will see a new generation of entrepreneurs blazing new trails, starting conscious companies and innovating in their chosen industries.”

Is this edition the same as the first?
Nope, it’s better. After releasing the first edition of ‘What am I Doing with my Life?’, I was totally humbled by the response I received from hundreds of young people (and their parents) all over the world. Two years (and an epic coaching business) later, I have learnt so much more about gift discovery and building a career you love, I just had to update it for you guys. Same concept but more content, bigger ideas, better strategies and greater possibilities for your insanely bright future.
