“Career to Calling is my life’s work,” says Annie. “I’ve been coaching cIients for over twenty years and can see the positive impact it has made on their lives. I also switched from a career to calling which has made all the difference to my achievements, happiness and peace of mind.”

“I created The Callings Program and wrote both my books to try to connect people of all ages and walks of life so that they feel less alone as they figure out their path in work and life.”

“I want to reach as many people as possible and for this guide to be available to those who do not have the financial means to seek professional help, the time or the immediate access to opportunities.”
