Welcome to 9 to Alive, a YouTube series I’ve created to help you turn your 9 to 5 job into a 9 to Alive career that makes a positive impact in the world.

Working with clients who are stuck in unfulfilling 9 to 5 jobs, I’ve realised how little people know about the fulfilling opportunities the non-profit sector offers. Being hugely passionate about it myself, I’ve had lots of fun sharing all I know and interviewing career shifters whose stories will undoubtedly inspire you too!

So grab a cup of tea, sit comfy, scroll down… and learn how to turn your 9 to 5 into 9 to Alive!
