MPL Book Cover

Imagine having your own career coach every step of the way as you navigate your job or career change in these turbulent times. That’s why we've developed Morph, Pivot, Launch--a new workbook and guided journal that will help you

   • master your mindset when you’re feeling anxious, stressed, and unfocused

   • energize your job search with tips and techniques adapted for these extraordinary times

   • hold fast to your dreams - they are the fire in your belly to help you outlast the storm!

Our goal is to publish the book in its entirety in December 2020, and we are still on track with that goal. However, by early March, we knew that we needed to change course and get you everything we had written to date as soon as possible.

Toward that end, we have streamlined the content of the first two sections and are making it available to you now via two completely and totally free PDF documents: (1) Master Your Mindset, and (2) Energize Your Job Search. (No email address or contact information required!) We’re also giving you a “sneak peek” at Bonnie’s unique, hand-drawn illustrations to inspire you, engage your imagination, and make you smile. You will find the links to both PDFs below. Simply click on the download buttons.

Feel free to share either or both of these PDFs with family, friends, and colleagues who are looking for a job amidst this extraordinary public health crisis.  Since the files are so large, we recommend sharing a link to this webpage rather than attempting to email the files themselves.

Bonnie Sales

Bonnie Sales is an award-winning contemporary artist who lives and works in St. Louis, MO. In addition to her whimsical pencil drawings, she loves working in a wide variety of art forms--from watercolor, oil, and mural painting to wood carving, stained glass, jewelry making, and functional art. Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Bonnie inspires others to see life as a colorful journey filled with vibrance, joy and contentment. Her talents have taken her to Jalisco, Mexico, where she created nine large murals and developed a love for bright colors and organic design. Perhaps, the following excerpt from her artist statement best captures Bonnie’s passion and purpose:  “In a world where we sometimes forget to see the beauty in the mundane, my  desire is to gift the viewer with a chance to be carried away in their own imagination: a place to dream, a unique world where all is well and cake is good for you!”  You can learn more about Bonnie and view more of her beautiful artwork at Honeybee Art Company.
