Amplify What God Calls YOU!

Hey! It’s your favorite Career Coach, Crystal Williams 🙂

Whewww! So much has happened since I last posted a blog! First and foremost HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Hope your 2022 is off to a great start! As mentioned a lot has happened but to really stay up to date with all the career inspiration and tips join my e-mail list at this link: bit.ly/joinyoubrandlist (P.S. if you sign up for the list you’ll feel like we chat at least once a week because you’ll get a faith filled career empowerment message from me!)

Ok now let’s get into this blog for real…

A couple of weeks ago God instructed me to remind His people about WHO they are. So of course me being an obedient servant (p.s. it was not always like that soooo I thank God for the evolve everyday!), I had no choice but to hop on the podcast mic and discuss it. So long story short the “Amplify What God Calls YOU” series was birthed! In this series, I encourage you to amplify what God calls you versus what the world calls you. You see, often times in our career journey we may encounter individuals that may say this or that (the negative this or that) about us and if we hear it so much we could begin to think this about ourselves. Specifically, you may begin to think you’re not good enough for the position or to work at the company, you’re not smart enough, you’re unworthy to receive the salary or the promotion, etc. LISTEN the list could go on but I hope you get the point!

Check out this video below that I literally posted the other day about this…the video begins with the phrase “Bottom Line Up Front…..

If you just looked at the video…you can tell that this topic just had to be discussed!

As a Career Coach that incorporates Christian Principles in my business that impacts professionals like you it’s important that I share what God has downloaded in my heart concerning your career.

With that said, if you’re interested in hearing more on the topic in the video and strategies on applying Christian Principles in navigating your career journey simply email me at hello@theyoubrandacademy.com stating “I’m In!”

Additionally, my podcast, Peculiar Career Chit Chat, where I share with you scriptures to reflect on to further assist you in amplifying what God call you vs. what the world may call you.

That’s all I have for now! However, if you want to engage with me weekly sign up for my email list: bit.ly/joinyoubrandlist

Many Blessings,

Crystal Williams

Career Empowerment Anyone??

Hello to all my Professionals, Career Seekers, and Career Changers!

I hope you are doing well 🙂 Bottom line upfront I have GOOD NEWS for you!!! The good news is (drum roll please…):

…the abundance is in your start! In all seriousness the road to the abundant lifestyle you seek is all in your START! Therefore, it’s times up for not starting or working towards your idea or career goal that God has placed in you. Simply put one foot forward and focus on the applause of God instead of the applause from man when progressing towards your career goals or that business idea.

Trust me I know how it is to be stifled by fear specifically the fear of the unknown. But guess what God (aka your heavenly father) shows up and shows out in the unknown!!! Good news right? So just move and be focused on the do not the how…you got it!

10. I absolutely love TV!!! I gave it up for lent one year because my TV addiction was horrible it became distracting and I could get nothing done! So I prayed about it and NOW I have the ability to watch TV or a movie with a purpose!
