"Finally A Step-by-Step Way to Replace Your Job With Work You Really Love... and Gain the Freedom, Flexibility, and Quality of Life You Deserve"
Since 1995 I've Shown Thousands of People Just Like You How to Find Your Calling And Then Make Good Money Doing Your Own Thing – and To Do It Faster Than You Could Ever Do It On Your Own...
All your life you've been told that you had a choice. You could either be happy – or you could make money – but you couldn't have both. Deep inside though you knew there had to be more to life than living for those two-week vacations.
Maybe you've even made some noise about your dream of being your own boss. And that's when your family and friends go crazy... "What do you MEAN you want to quit your job?! You have a good job – you want to be happy too?!" "It will never work." "Just be lucky you have a job."
Part of you buys into the myth that your only option is toil away at some high stress, low satisfaction job until some far off retirement. Then you get to be happy.
But another part of you knows darn well that it really is possible to work at something you truly love AND to have more control over your time and your life. Deep down you know it's not just "wishful thinking."
For one thing, you've seen other people do it. Like that woman in your area who is making a good living selling her homemade cheesecakes... Or the guy you saw on TV who makes six figures building elaborate stone walls.... Or the travel lover who has a portable online business that allows her to just pack up her laptop and work from literally any where in the world... Or the retiree who scours garage sales for antiques and then sells them on eBay.
If they can re-create their lives, why can't you? You're already further along than most people.
For one, you already know what you want. You want to do work that brings money and satisfaction. You want your work to have meaning and purpose. Maybe even do something that leaves the world a better place. But even that's not enough.
The life side of the work-life equation is important too. For you that means having a life where you control your life and time, where you enjoy more flexibility and balance... A life where you call the shots instead of some crazy organization or "challenging" (I'm being kind here) boss.
Deep down you do know "what" you want. The only part you've been missing up until now is "how."
That's what I would like to help you with – I'd like to give you the solution you need to discover what you love to do... and then get started doing it... right now.
Even better, I can help you get there faster than you ever thought possible.
Well for starters up until now, you've probably been listening to the wrong people. You know all those well-meaning but horribly misinformed family members and friends who keep telling you, "You can't do money doing THAT!" or "What about health insurance?" My own 19-year-old nephew the business major informed me that "Most businesses fail."
The 13th century philosopher Rumi once said, "When setting out on a journey, never consult someone who has never left home."
I mean if your dream is to become a personal chef or a motivational speaker then you can't be looking to your cousin the dentist or your pal in human resources for advice.
If you really want make a living doing what you love, then talk to people who have already figured out how to work at what they love...
Real-World Advice from Regular People Who Found Practical Ways to Turn Their Interests into Income
The reason I know that it is entirely possible to make a good living without a job is because I talk to people every day who are doing it.
Whether you dream of writing children's books... or researching stuff on the internet... or shopping... or organizing events... or inventing things... or making a difference in the world... or taking photographs... or, well, whatever your passion...
You need to "hang out" with people who know that it really is possible to make your dream a reality... starting here, starting now.
Lots of people have already figured out how to get paid for doing what they love – and so can you...
...like Jamie who combined her personal passion for all natural products with a fun childhood story to create a quirky brand of skin care products that she can be proud of. Today her products are sold in national chains.
...or Steven who turned his values into his vocation by leading workshops around the globe to help other men to practice and promote a healthy, compassionate, and responsible model of masculinity.
...or like Micki who turned her love for dogs and natural foods into multiple profit centers by transforming herself into a "master dog chef," sought after speaker, and cooking instructor. People come from all over the world to take classes with Micki in her 1940's diner-style industrial kitchen which also serves as the location for her film and educational CD/DVD production.
...or a former school teacher named Kim who started out making and selling pillows, quilts and boutique-style clothing on eBay. By recruiting her fellow crafters at eBay she went on to create a online business featuring over 3,000 crafting "how to" eBooks and patterns. Kim's home-based business grew so quickly that her husband Ryan was able to quit his well-paying corporate job to join her.
...or me. I spent 7 long years commuting 90 miles a day to a high-stress job that paid the bills but did not feed my spirit. I felt like I was living in a Dilbert cartoon. The demands of work and life left me feeling exhausted and emotionally depleted.
Then on July 31, 1993, I got the worse news of my life. Without warning my Mom passed away suddenly of a heart attack. She was just 61 and a short 5 months away from retiring with my Dad.
What had been an agonizing wake-up call ended up being the most profound turning point in my life. Losing my Mother so young made me realize that if I was going to start living the life I wanted to live, it was up to me to find a way to make it happen.
Jon Stewart pretty much summed it up when he said, "The big turning point for me was realizing that this is my life."
Today I Work For Myself, Make My Own Hours, and Genuinely Enjoy Helping Folks Like You Figure Out How To Earn A Living By Profiting From Your Passions®...
I'm Valerie Young, and I've been helping people discover realistic ways to make a living without a job for well over a decade. And I've gathered a trove of useful, reliable, proven resources and tools you can use to discover your unique gifts and talents and turn them into your livelihood.
I guess you'd call me an expert at what I do. I've worked side-by-side along internationally-known career change experts Barbara Sher and Barbara Winter (who you'll hear more about in a minute). My advice has been cited in places like...
Plus, I've spoken on "how to feel as bright and capable as everyone seems to think you are" to over 30,000 people from such diverse organizations as Intel, Chrysler, Procter & Gamble, Boeing, American Women in Radio and Television, and Harvard University, just to name a few.
And I'm both thrilled and grateful to say that I recently signed a six-figure book deal with a major publishing house! (Sweet!)
The point is that helping people escape from job jail by turning their passions into profits IS my passion. As it happens, I've carved out a very nice life doing work I truly love. In fact I now earn six times my old corporate salary.
Frankly though, it's never been all about the money for me. Don't get me wrong -- I like knowing that I can afford a nice home, have money to travel, and that I can look forward to a comfortable retirement.
But I also have this big stack of handwritten thank you cards sitting on my desk. And how many people do you know who take the time to do that anymore? Every single one of them is from someone who wrote to tell me that I helped them change their life. You just can't put a price on that kind of satisfaction.
I love what I do. The problem is I just don't have the time to work with people one-on-one anymore. And even if I could, not everyone can afford to pay over $300 for a personal consultation.
So I had to come up a more efficient and affordable way to help more people figure out the "how" part of "Do What You Love and the Money Will Follow "-- faster.
And that's when I came up with the idea to create an online community where like-minded people like you could meet and hang out. It's called the Changing Course Club.
You still get a lot of the same benefits of working directly with me. But you also have a one-stop place where you can find all the tools, information, and built in support and motivation you need to make sure that if you do what you love that the money really will follow.
Even better, I can help you make the leap from having a boss to being your own boss faster than you ever thought possible.
You'll be joining a select group of purpose-driven people who, like you, have no intention of letting the moss grow on their dreams. Hundreds of people have already joined the Changing Course Club determined to shift their dreams into high gear...and get that all-important momentum racing toward their goal of becoming their own boss.
As a Changing Course Club Member, you gain all the tools, resources, expert guidance, and networking you need to reinvent yourself faster, more efficiently, and more economically than you ever could on your own.
I'll Tell You the Secrets, Techniques, and Tricks to Making the Leap From Having a Boss to Being Your Own Boss I Know Really Work... to Save You Time, Money, Energy, and Frustration
As a Changing Course Club Member, you'll get password-protected access to books, special reports, worksheets, audio recordings, and more... all designed to help you discover, follow, and achieve your dream...FAST!
You'll find all the essential tools you need to get on the path that makes the most sense for you... the path that will take you to a life where you're passionate about what you're doing. A life where you have more time for what's important... more freedom...more control... and more satisfaction, too.
Plus members can tap into an incredible amount of targeted, timely, expert advice from a team of experts I've lined up to teach you how to quit your job and get a life.
For starters, as part of your membership, you'll receive instant, downloadable access to exclusive recordings from two of THE biggest names in the "find your calling" and self-employment field:
"How to Use ALL of Your Interests, Passions, and Hobbies to Create the Life and Career of Your Dreams" featuring New York Times Best-Selling Author Barbara Sher
You may have seen Barbara Sher on Oprah, CNN, PBS, or Good Morning America or read one of her five best-sellers including I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was and Wishcraft.
The question Barbara asks is: "Are you drawn to so many different interests that you can't choose just one?" "Scanners" as Barbara calls them are genetically wired to pursue many areas. Rather than zeroing in on a single interest, scanners possess a unique type of mind that scans the horizon, eager to explore everything they see. The problem is you've probably been told all of your life to "just pick something and stick with it." Well, there's a reason Barbara titled her latest book Refuse to Choose!
Listen in to this special live presentation as Barbara explains why some people simply cannot, and should not, decide on a single path.
Even if you've settled on a business idea, I guarantee you'll be inspired to tap into some of your own long forgotten passions – passions that can also be parlayed into even more money-making ideas.
"How to Become Joyfully Jobless" audio presentation series with Barbara Winter, Author of the Best-Selling Book Making a Living Without a Job
If you're not yet familiar with Barbara Winter, author of Making a Living Without a Job, be prepared to be amazed. Barbara is a vivacious and wildly popular speaker, and you'll understand why as soon as you listen to your first of 12 one hour-long How to Become Joyfully Jobless recordings.
You'll quickly discover...
Barbara is a business owner, educator, and self-employment advocate. Her popular seminars, including Making a Living Without a Job and Establish Yourself as an Expert, are regularly held throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
In addition, she is the editor/publisher of Winning Ways: The Newsletter for People Living and Working With Passion, the longest running small-business newsletter in the United States.
As a Changing Course Club Member you can assess to both Barbara Sher and Barbara Winter's information-packed presentations 24-7 simply by logging into the "Club Lounge."
But I'm getting ahead of myself. The first thing I'll do when I receive your membership registration is...
Now, if you're really ready to "clock out" of your day job once and for all, I invite you to join me every month for this special program free to Changing Course Club Members...
"Viable And Fascinating Business Ideas Are Literally All Around You. You Just Need To Know Where To Look!"
There really is no shortage of creative ways to get paid to do work you truly love. The problem is most people don't know how to profit from their passions. That's why when you join you'll receive a free pass to my monthly Tele-Brainstorming session I call the "Turn Your Interests Into Income Opportunity Hour."
This is where every month you get to join me on a LIVE call-in session as I delve into my vast Opportunity Files to reveal some fascinating ways that regular people – just like you – have turned their interests into income! This is also your chance to tap into the creative minds of your fellow club members and guest experts to brainstorm business ideas and troubleshoot any kinks in your plans.
You can even sign up to be selected for my "Idea Seat" where fellow club members, guest experts and I will spend a portion of the hour brainstorming just for you! By the end of this hour, I guarantee you'll walk away with a wealth of ideas to help you turn your interests into your living.
Now, don't worry if you can't make the call every single month. No Problem! We record these information-packed brainstorming sessions and make the MP3 available to you online within a couple of days, so you can listen at your leisure.
Plus, every month, I'll mail to your home a recording of the current "Turn Your Interests into Income Opportunity Hour" Session on CD so you can use your commuting time listen in your car or anywhere.
And the great thing about the business ideas you'll hear about in the Turning Interests into Income Opportunity Hour is you don't even need a lot of money to get started. All it takes to start your own business is a little creative thinking... in fact, Real Success Without a Real Job author Ernie Zelinski calls creative thinking "the poor man's wealth."
The Turning Interests into Income Opportunity Hour Tele-Brainstorming series will bring you a myriad of ideas you can build off of in your own transition to a self-employment. But even more importantly, because you are also receiving these sessions on CD, you can start creating your own Opportunity Library to bring you inspiration and motivation all through your transition.
This is SO important because...
Being a Part Of a Community of Like-Minded People Who Totally "Get" You and Your "Crazy Dream" Is THE Best Way to Keep You – and Your Dream – on Track
Think about it...
Who are the least likely to support your dream of changing course? It's your friends and family right? Why? Because they love you. And because they love you, they want you to be "safe."
Unfortunately though, to them "safe" means spending the next 10, 20, or 3o years stuck in a job and a life that is sucking the life force out of you. But the way I see it the most risky thing you can do is to look back at your life with regretful what ifs...
You will always have your family. But if you want to change course, then you need to find people who believe in you and your dream.
Caroline Myss is right when she says, "We evolve at the rate of the tribe that we're plugged into."
If you are really serious about taking your life in a new direction, then you need to find people to support you, to advise you, and to cheer you on. And that means hanging out with the people in "your tribe."
That's why, as a Changing Course Club Member, I've built in plenty of opportunities for you to connect with fellow dreamers and dream doers...
For one, as a member you have the exclusive opportunity to join like-minded members in one of several small group Action Planning & Support Teams.
Based on Barbara Sher's highly successful Success Team model, these self-led discussion groups consist of approximately 4-5 people who, week by week for 12 weeks, work together to work towards your goal of finally changing course.
We'll set everything up for you. All you need to do is bring your enthusiasm and your dream.
The Changing Course Club is going to be there for you every step of the way. That's because you'll be joining a community of people who think like you do and want the same thing you do – freedom, flexibility, control, and enjoyable work.
And to make sure that you're always "in the loop," along with your monthly CD, you'll also receive that month's Club Newsletter featuring "Hot Topics"...articles spotlighting fellow club members just like you who are making their dream life a wonderful reality...and how you can too.
Between the ongoing Action Planning groups, the live Opportunity Hour Tele-Brainstorming Session, and the monthly Club Newsletter...you'll be guided along and cheered on every step of the way...as you buck all the dream bashers and reach out for a new life making a living on your own terms.
Then watch out! In no time at all I just may be featuring your success story in the Changing Course Club Newsletter.
Shave Months (Even Years) Off Your Transition to Your New Life with Hundreds of Other Reliable, Eye-Opening Resources
Now, keep in mind... once you've figured out what direction to point yourself, you've got to actually head that way.
And it's usually at this point that one of two things happens.
People either a) find themselves paralyzed and so do nothing... or b) rush ahead to learn everything they can about what they'd like to do and find themselves bogged down in too much information, not sure which direction to take, and wasting time...
But as a Changing Course Club Member, you can avoid both pitfalls and, instead, take the smart and steady steps necessary to get from where you are today to where you want to be.
In helping thousands of people discover and live their dreams, I've systematically tracked down the most helpful, reliable, time-saving, and money-making resources out there... and I've catalogued them all.
Plus, You Get Continuous Access to Low-Cost Resources, Programs, and Tools to Help You Make the Leap from Having a Boss to Being Your Own Boss. For instance...
To help you navigate the transition to self-employment, I've included another amazing collection at the members-only Changing Course Club Lounge. It's my Quick Start Business Launch Guide.
In it you'll find an astonishing collection of clickable links to free and low-cost resources, programs, and tools to help you make the leap from having a boss to being your own boss. As you well know, there's lots of money to be made online – if you know what you're doing.
You'll learn about assistance available to new and established business owners in the U.S. and internationally. And there are special sections featuring resources specific to women, people of color, people with disabilities, and people who want to telecommute or work from home.
Plus, if you love the idea of working from home making money on the internet, I share my personal "Marketing Rolodex" of top resources to help you profit from your own online business.
The truth is, if you were to go to bookstores and to the library and get online and try to find all these resources yourself, you'd be at it for... well, for years. (That's how long it's taken me to track them down.)
And the thing is, you'd have a hard time distinguishing the worthwhile things from those that are, frankly, a waste of time.
And time is of the essence. After all, you're ready for change. You're ready to reinvent yourself, starting now.
So do you want to spend months and months muddling through hundreds of thousands of resources hoping that you'll glean enough useful information to get your new life started on the right foot?
Or do you want to go straight to the resources that are trustworthy and effective... so you can get busy living your new life?
"You Simply Can't Get This Level of Ongoing Support, Information, or Resources to Help You to Take Control Of Your Life and Time Any Other Way"
Membership is guaranteed to take you much closer to living your dream much faster than if you work at it in isolation. By becoming a Changing Course Club Member, you're positioning yourself for astonishing progress...
You're ensuring that you take the positive steps necessary to create for yourself a life where you get paid to do what you love and enjoy the freedom and satisfaction of living your dream...
When you think about it, the exclusive access to literally hundreds of proven, reliable online resources... ongoing guidance you receive through our Action Planning Groups... the Joyfully Jobless audio series with Barbara Winter... Dream Makers recordings hosted by me... the LIVE monthly Opportunity Hour Tele-Brainstorming sessions which you'll also receive each month on CD and monthly Club Newsletter... and everything else... the value of the benefits you gain as a Changing Course Club Member runs well over $1,000.
But I meant it when I said that it has never been "just" about the money for me. In addition to being my business, helping people to change course is also my mission. I even had a big shot marketing guru "accuse" me of caring more about my customers than I did about making money. I took it as a compliment.
It's not that I don't want to earn a good living – I do. And when you start your own business I want you to set your financial goals high as I do.
But I've always cared as much about helping people as I have about making money. I could easily be making twice what I earn now. But I've never been willing to sacrifice my values to do it. Once you earn a certain amount of money, making more becomes secondary.
Just imagine being able to look back on this day and say, "That was the day I did it – the day I started mapping my escape route from the j-o-b world...and today I'm living my dream. I have more control over my time... and my life. And I'm working at what I love!"
If you can say that a year or two from now... then membership in the Changing Course Club for less than $1 a day becomes a truly extraordinary value. After all, that's only the price of a couple specialty coffees a week!
Isn't a future of reward and fulfillment worth a little coffee change?
So Where's the Catch?
Well, frankly, there isn't one. What you see here is what you'll get...unfettered access to every Changing Course Club resource there is... life-changing books and CD's... my entire electronic library... timely, solution-oriented teleconferences... and much, much more.
In fact, here's a quick glance at just a few of the life-changing tools available to you as a Changing Course Club Member...
Get Yourself Onto The Path To A Whole New Life...
As you can see, you get a treasure trove of money-making, dream-achieving resources (well over a $1,000 worth!) to which you have full, free access when you're a member of the Changing Course Club. And the only thing I ask, as I mentioned earlier, is a remarkably affordable monthly membership fee of $29 – that's less than $1 a day.
But just in case you're still not sure how serious I am about putting you on the fast track to your dream life...
If This Club Doesn't Knock Your SOCKS OFF... If You Aren't Absolutely THRILLED by Everything You Discover Here... I'll Cheerfully Give All Your Money Back
When you enroll in the Changing Course Club, your credit card will be charged $29. Once your enrollment is complete, you'll have instant access to a cache of online resources to give you the fastest start toward your new life...right out of the gate.
If you see the same value and benefit as I do in this club, then do nothing. Every 30 days you will be charged $29 for your membership in our private, password-protected Club Lounge.
If, however, you (or the person you're buying for) doesn't absolutely love this club – no problem. There's no commitment or contact to sign, and if you ever don't feel you're getting value in your membership, you can cancel anytime.
You know, it's funny how you can spend months planning a two-week vacation... but never invest even a minute in your own dream.
It's time to change that.
It's time to give your interests, your gifts, your life the attention they deserve. When you become a part of the Changing Course Club, you're doing just that. You're investing in your own future.
I think you'll agree: If you're ready to escape the j-o-b world and start working at what you love... then you'd be hard-pressed to find a better value – or a more effective way to do it.
So I hope you'll accept this special invitation today to become a member of the Changing Course Club.
And Here's Another Plus, Too
By taking this important step to make a positive change in your own life... you'll be helping someone else make a difference in his or her life, too.
That's because a portion of the proceeds from the Changing Course Club go directly to Trickle Up, a micro-lending program that assists low-income and impoverished people in the U.S.
Are you ready to trade in the drudgery of 9-to-5 (or 8-to-late) for a life of balance... and time for the people and things that matter most? Do it now as a Changing Course Club Member...
Changing course can be exciting... and a little scary. That's when it helps to remember the wise words of Margaret Bourke-White who said, "Action stops fear."
So come on... take action today. Give your dream a little spark now, ignite that passion now and become a member of the Changing Course Club... before you know it you could be living a whole new life!

P.S. When you take advantage of this invitation to join the Changing Course Club today, I'll give you two additional gifts to carry you closer to your dream life much faster...
First, I'll give you and your dream a "daily inspirational nudge" that will help you to shift your dream from wishful thinking to actually doing.
Every day, by email, you'll be greeted with a validating reminder that you really can take control of your time and your life. That's daily encouragement to help you keep your dream of a more satisfying and relaxed life front-and-center.
Second, you are entitled to a 25% discount (up to $30 savings) on a consultation with an "Outside the Job Box" and Business Idea Expert. Each of these consultants completed my unique certification program, and has a customized process to help people discover their passions and turn those passions into income.
These consultations are extremely beneficial to those who aren't sure what they want to do, as well as those who have an idea but are looking for help to expand or grow it with additional profit centers.
I am both thrilled and proud to introduce you to one of these incredibly talented people. Having personally worked with each one of these experienced career consultants, I recommend them whole-heartedly.
If you're really ready to create a life where you make a living doing what you love... a life with balance and time for what's most important...
Then the Changing Course Club can help you embrace that dream and turn it into reality... faster, more efficiently, more economically... and more enjoyably... than you ever could on your own.
P.P.S. If you have to think twice about investing less than a dollar a day into growing your dream of being your own boss then, to be brutally honest, this program isn't for you.
