The Purpose Paradigm
I’d bet good money that you don’t know what a meaningful career actually looks like.
Maybe you can tell when someone else has one.
But when it comes to creating that kind of career for yourself? No dice.
- Why do I keep ending up in jobs I don’t like?
- Why can’t I make money from my passion?
- Why can’t I stick to one job like my parents did?
- Do I need to suck it up and do a job I can't stand?
- What do I have to do for this not to feel so hard?
You’re asking the questions of someone who’s trying to build a new career on an old model. And you’ll keep asking them until you understand the current model: The Purpose Paradigm.
WHY I WROTE THE BOOK
Careers don't look like they used to.
Not like they did in the '50's or even the 90's.
There is a new paradigm, and you want to be in it.
I’m Laura Simms. Several years ago I went through my own career crisis. Now as a career coach, I see my clients struggle because of using outdated approaches toward their careers. I wrote this book so you can leapfrog right into pursuing meaningful work, no angst required.
ONCE YOU LEARN THE PURPOSE PARADIGM, YOU’LL KNOW WHAT TO AIM FOR IN YOUR CAREER, HAVE THE COURAGE TO MAKE CHANGES, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, KNOW WHAT KIND OF CHANGES YOU NEED TO MAKE.
Consider this your invitation to learn the secret handshake of people who are thriving in modern, meaningful careers.
If you want what they have, you need to know what they know.

"THIS BOOK IS EXACTLY THE KICK I NEEDED"
It allowed me to more easily identify the true motivators and passions in my life, and connect them to a realistic and fulfilling career. The Purpose Paradigm blends reality with inspiration to create an amazing outline for starting a meaningful career.
"I DON’T HAVE TO SETTLE"
Laura mapped out the elements of purpose-driven careers and made it easy for me to understand what motivates me and how I can channel those qualities into meaningful work.
"I'VE ALREADY TOLD MULTIPLE PEOPLE THEY HAVE TO READ IT"
Just finished reading "The Purpose Paradigm" and LOVED it. I've already told multiple people they have to read it (including the girl I was driving for Uber, the guy at Barnes and Noble, my boyfriend, and my sister). I want to see every high school kid have access to this because it would powerfully shift the pressure we all place on ourselves to "figure it out" by the time we're 18 (or in my case, 26).
LACEY JEWELL COPE
"I HAVE A MISSION AND A VISION!"
Yesterday I was crying at my desk as I started reading The Purpose Paradigm at work (God forgive me). Today, I ain’t sad no mo’! When I got to Page 67, it’s like something was unlocked. I have a mission and a vision! I feel like I have so much to offer the world.
"I’M ACTUALLY A WIZARD AND I GET TO GO TO HOGWARTS"
This book made me feel like I've been living in a cupboard under the stairs, convinced something must be wrong with me because I don't fit in with the outside world, and the people I live with think I'm an awful weirdo. Then I find out I'm not bad because I'm different, I don't fit in because I'm actually a wizard and I get to go to Hogwarts, learn magic, and meet others like me.
