Being an ENFP at work is interesting because finding your true calling and career was a huge focus of mine especially because we love so many different things. I felt like I have had so many different jobs. The many jobs I’ve taken include waitering, dental assistant, babysitter, fundraising for university scholarships, hazardous waste disposal specialists/operations, Nutritional preschoolers, movie theaters cash register, selling Cutco knives, Selling Marketing technology, IT consulting, HRtech, career and relationship coach, payroll and benefits consultant, recruiter, business development for a staffing agency, and scientist.. Listing all of that gives people headaches but the truth is I loved most of my jobs, variety is the spice of life. As long as I am learning I am enjoying myself. Some people love predictability and we thrive on chaos. Living a truly fulfilling life looks like everyday putting myself into uncomfortable situations. My wife on the other hand likes knowing what to expect and being able to predict what she is going to be doing years from now is probably going to be similar to what she is doing now. I on the other hand feel like working for a start up is a lot of fun because I wear multiple hats. Accepting this early on in my life would have saved me a lot of trouble because there are going to be a lot of people who will criticize your career decision and the resistance in trying to fit in to the normal 9-5 just doesn’t work for me.
Having a day filled with adventures, stories and fun activities is why I love trying out new ventures. Mastery is something we struggle with in terms of people say that you have to put in the 10,000 hour rule to truly be a master at something. Perhaps I’m mastering variety and being uncomfortable. Being uncomfortable is how we all grow and ENFPs certainly know how to grow. Trusting our intuition that we know ourselves best is the key to happiness. When we rely too much on what other people tell us to do we will never be truly satisfied.
Choosing work that is social is key as well. I’ve had some data entry heavy jobs in the past at SHI for instance and it was god awful. The happiest I’ve been is when I get to go to networking events where I’m meeting hundreds of new people everyday. That’s why working at LinkedIn was a dream come true because I literally got to meet someone new every single day. ENFPs are great networkers because we love meeting people and we are always connecting the dots and bringing people together.
Being able to focus one just one repetitive task is extremely challenging.
ENFPs are divergent thinkers which means we love coming up with ideas and following through with it can be challenging unless we set ourselves up powerfully Letting a lot of people know and also surround ourselves with other personality types that will help us be accountable in general.
Purpose: I create an empowering context for curious and hungry people looking for fulfillment, experiences, and creativity. We do this by developing their growth mindset, introducing self-love, and powerful group experiences. It results in people with strong boundaries, resilient mental health, and practical life skills
People leave with the ability to land their dream job, have autonomy and flexibility with their lifestyle, travel the world, and create from their heart and soul.
Davidson was once broke, insecure, low-confidence, and frustrated by doing all the wrong activities. Addicted to drugs, validation, and wallowing in self-pity. No relationship to family, and at the mercy of other people’s suggestions and opinions.
It was hell.
After spending $100k hiring different coaches, traveling the world doing workshops around the world, reading>1000 books, and through curiosity, have created the most effective system to remove people from that situation. My life’s work is to bring joy and abundance to people who as on a similar path as I was and bring back the joy and abundance of their life.
Through shared experiences and storytelling, I inspire and model behaviors that lead to a richer, more fulfilled life full of joy, experiences, passion, and ecstasy from the richness of relationships and being able to experience the depths of the human experience.
