Feeling burned out at work? Not quite sure where you want to be in your career? You are not alone. Often we get so caught up in our lives that we never take a step back and try to comprehend where we are and where we’re going in our careers.
CareerCycles is a unique chance to take that time to reflect and enjoy the soothing outdoors at the same time. Mark Franklin came across the idea of combining bicycle trips with career counselling on a B.C. ferry back in 2001.
“I just changed careers from engineering for 10 years to counselling,” Franklin says.
