Episode Overview

In this episode, I talk with Barb Garrison. Barb is a Career & Money Breakthrough Coach and “Job-You-Love” expert at Internal Groove, the company she founded 14 years ago.

She helps burned out, success-driven professionals who are just going through the motions design a career, based on their TRUTH, that makes them leap out of bed even on Monday mornings.

The creator of The Job I Love Revolution, Barb supports corporate executives and entrepreneurs to move from self-doubt and burned out to relief and freedom.

After 18 years in marketing and surviving corporate burnout herself, Barb combines her experience as a mentor, marketer, corporate director, consultant, and two-time entrepreneur with her passion for self-discovery. She has degrees in Psychology and Mass Communications, plus 3 professional coaching certifications. Informed by your natural gifts and highest truth, Barb is an expert at designing creative career solutions you might not see on your own.

She can be found working one-on-one with clients around the country, in private retreats with those who fly in to work with her, plus teaching from the stage at workshops and leading mastermind groups.

After relocating from a fast-paced life in Los Angeles, Barb fulfilled her grand plan and lives with her husband at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Boulder, Colorado.

5 Questions Segment

Q1. We know that the most successful and happy people have a morning routine, what do you do each morning or evening that sets your day up for success? I have a three-year journal called happiness is. So every morning I write one sentence.  I also set a one-word intention for the day for how I’m going to show up.

My evening routine is more practical. I write three high potential actions that will move the needle on my business the most and I try to do those the following morning.  It’s a very simple plan, but if I do those three things, I’ll feel very good about what I accomplished that day. Before I go to sleep I think of five things I’m proud of.

Q2. What's your definition of Success? To make a difference that is in alignment with my truth.

Q3. What's your definition of Happiness? It’s a feeling we can cultivate by adding joy or appreciation.

Q4. What do you know now that you wish you would have known 10 years ago? Simple makes me happier than more. 

Q5. What do you think is the biggest issue facing busy professionals today? Saying no. Saying no to people trampling boundaries, too many choices… and saying no to more, more, more, more.
