What we're about
Professions On Purpose (PoP) serves those seeking or making meaningful and sometimes scary changes to—and through—their work.
Our community embraces every form of “entrepreneurship” from business and social to creative (artist, craftsman, novelist) idea (author, blogger, TED talker) and innovative (tinkerer, hacker, inventor).
At PoP, a job is WHAT we do, a career is HOW we advance and a profession is the WHY in our calling or mission.
Join PoP and:
· learn more about the good, the bad, and the ugly of transitioning your career
· get help bringing your ideas to fruition and the market
· find inspiration from the stories and challenges of the like-minded
· meet those with complementary skillsets and resources that can advance your mission
We believe a profession is more than what you are paid for. Indeed, the word ‘profession’ comes from the Latin professiō, meaning ‘declaration’ or ‘avowal’ made in response to a vocatiō—a"vocation" or "calling.” Thus true professionals seek meaning, not simply means.
Be a true pro. Do Work that Calls to You.
