Tired of those Monday Morning Blues?……..
You are about to be liberated!

This is the class you have been waiting for with a Step by Step guide to finding the “work” that expresses and fulfills your needs, talents, and passions. Marsha Sinetar shows you how to overcome your fears, take the little risks that make big risks possible, and become a person whose work means self-expression and growth, and love!

Do What You Love, the Money will Follow is for all people who do the work that they really enjoy. It is a class that hopefully will show students and readers/users of the book “how” to follow their own hearts to the work of their dreams.

It is at its core a comment about the spiritual aspects of Work. The class will guide students through the book over 8 weeks and will help them fulfill themselves as authentic, unique human beings through doing their “RIGHT LIVELIHOOD” so we will delve into the psychology of work beyond the mundane understanding.

Work can be used, as can anything and everything we do, to communicate our love for self-and-others.

Discover how to tune in to your inner world and your unique talents; evaluate and build your self-esteem; banish your out-mode network of “should”

The book is brilliantly written by Marsha Sinetar, Ph.D. who is an organizational psychologist, mediator, and writer who for several years has been increasingly immersed in the study of self-actualizing adults
