I had a great time meeting over 250 people last night at the SSP BPI event here in Chicago.  SSP BPI is the world’s largest career counseling and coaching firm with over 1,200 coaches across the US.  I spoke to some of their Chicago clients last night.  

I met many people “in transition”.  The recession has clearly hit Chicago, unfortunately.  But these folks were upbeat and truly seeing their layoffs as opportunities.  We talked about going for the dream job that would ultimately provide a new level of satisfaction….a new level of fulfillment, passion and happiness.  I think the 250 folks walked away with a “Yes, we can!” attitude.  I know I sure feel that way about them!  Yes, they can!
