What Do Good Work Guidance Clients Say?

Career Guidance Testimonials

"What I get from your workshops is a chance to assimilate what right livelihood means."

Deeann Marquart, Legislative Analyst

"I truly enjoyed the seminar, both for its content and for the insights it gave me about a certain "quality" of being in business that you certainly embody."

Cal French, College Administrator

"I enjoyed your workshop very much and hope you'll agree to do it again soon. Let us know your availability and we will arrange for more of our staff to attend."

Lisa Matthews, Vocational Counselor

"The workshop was very well thought out and organized. It provided helpful and thoughtful information, and it was fun. It helped me confirm that I am not ready at this time to start my own business."

Ron Ziglar, Fledgling Entrepreneur

"Your study course gave me a profound experience of receiving services from a business conducted in the spirit of right livelihood. I am now both further along and more solidly on a new and gratifying path."

Roberta Fraser, Corporate Manager

"It was with great interest that I discovered the Web site for the Center for Good Work and the course syllabus for the online course 'The Path to Meaningful Work.' I picked up Claude Whitmyer's book Mindfulness and Meanginul Work several years ago and remain committed to pursuing right livelihood in my own life. I'd appreciate being put on any distribution lists for news about the Center's work or upcoming events.

"The program outline for the 'Path to Meaningful Work' looks very interesting and I would like to receive the free introductory lesson entitled 'What is Meaningful Work?'"

Thanks! I look forward to purchasing the other lessons as they become available.

Pamela Bruns, Raleigh, NC
