You can’t make this stuff up.  A client who I helped transition into a Wall Street quant job sent me the following text yesterday:

“Dear Mike, how are you doing recently? Hope everything is going well with you. Thanks for all your help in the past and it is you who helped me make my dream come true. Hope you enjoy the holiday and best wishes to you and your family! Merry Christmas!”

When I read the note, I started to cry.

Funny thing is he doesn’t realize I’m the one who benefits most.  I am not talking money. I’m talking knowing I helped someone on their professional journey which is why I become a career coach to begin with.

I give gratitude to all those I have tried to help over the past year.
