#133: Day Job To Dream Job [Podcast]

Many people in our modern society are prisoners. Prisoners of a job they hate, of a profession they despise, or even of a business that owns them (instead of the other way around.) It doesn't have to be this way.


Today's podcast is devoted to the idea that you can break free of that prison. That you can escape your “day job” and start living in the reality of your “dream job.”

Feature Presentation: Interview with Author Kary Oberbrunner…

Author, life coach, and speaker Kary Oberbrunner shows people how to launch their dream jobs and experience the freedom to go as they please, earn as they wish, and live as they like. His nine proven steps will help readers “jailbreak” from their day jobs without relying on an MBA, investors, or a lucky break. In this interview you'll discover how to:

  • Overcome self-limiting beliefs that sabotage success
  • Start lean and stay lean by ignoring conventional thinking
  • Build a dream team of experts committed to their cause
  • Carve out a niche and get noticed in a noisy world
  • Market beforehand to create critical momentum
  • Monetize a message to its full potential
  • Achieve personal clarity, competence, and confidence
  • Earn greater influence, impact, and income in the marketplace

Through sharing his own story and the success of others who have followed his process, Kary shows us that anyone can turn their passion into a full-time gig.

    19yrs ago, I chose to be an over the road truck driver, I was 31 and single and it was a great fit for me. However, 2 years in I got married, and had a family, and the job kept me away from home, which in turn had a profoundly negative impact on my family affecting everybody. I’ve missed birthdays, anniversaries, church functions, even funerals of close relatives, now my youngest son is 15 and plays football, is in school choir, ROTC, and Boy Scouts, plus we’re raising a 4yr old grandchild, and I don’t want to miss anymore time with them, Not to mention the economic aspect is not great. I am a cancer survivor (stage 3 colo-rectal, 2003), am currently battling kidney disease, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, prostate problems, fall out from the cancer surgery I’ve had, and a couple of other stress related issues, (other than that, I’m fine?) all of my health problems are directly linked to trucking. When Kary says that “day jobs kill people”, in his book, I can attest to that. I have wanted to be my own boss for years now, but lacked the ideas, resources, time, and confidence. I’m Sorry for the length of my comment, and venting.

    • No need to apologize – thanks for sharing!

    • So glad you are now in a good place Matthew. Proud of your shift from PRISON to PLAN to PAYOFF.

  • This is one of the BEST podcast interviews I’ve ever heard in my entire life. Thanks Ray, for pulling so much more out of Kary on this talk. Dang. We could preach messages off his one-liners alone … for days! I’ve been #Oberbrunnered.

    • It was a phenomenal conversation with a remarkable man.

    • Thanks for your kindness Mike. Lots of lessons forged from pain. Honored to now use that pain for a purpose…IGNITING SOULS. Thanks for connecting us together.

  • Marshall Bone

    Mind. Blown.

  • Great interview Ray! Thoroughly enjoyed hearing from Kary and the great things he’s doing to Ignite Souls! Keep ’em coming sir!

    • You are too kind @frank. It’s a blast seeing all God is doing in and through you.

  • Loved this!!! Kary is doing some amazing things and I got so excited when I saw “Day Job to Dream Job” show up on the podcast app I may have screamed “awesome” out of excitement. Plus the book is fantastic!

    • Yahoo Camilla. I love your wonderful photography and all you are doing.

  • Kathleen Thompson

    This podcast was incredible. I am working through my plan right now, and this couldn’t have come at a better time. Kary – thank you for sharing this message with the world. I am going to share your book on my “Finding Your Groove” podcast. My niche is a bit different from yours, but your message will help my audience see that there are options besides living a life of quiet desperation.

    • Encouraged by what I hear Kathleen. Congrats on your success.

  • I have some very personal reasons why I love this podcast episode, but the top of that list is that this was a GREAT interview. Kary is smart and gives some very good advice and inspiration for people seeking something different and better for their lives. Ray, you are the best interviewer on the internet. Unlike most podcasters, you let the GUEST talk instead of trying to interject every thought that comes into your head during the interview. I love your solo episodes, so I definitely like to hear you talk, but I really appreciate that you know the difference between a solo show and an interview. Great job to you both!
