Career Journal | Your Roadmap to a Career You'll Love
A powerful, yet simple journaling system that helps you find your dream career with the practical steps you need to make it a reality.
Why shouldn’t you wake up every morning with a smile on your face, excited for the day ahead of you? Knowing that you’re having an impact, doing what you love and getting paid what you truly deserve. With over 90,000 hours spent at work over your lifetime, why shouldn’t your career be an extension of who you are?
Yet the more people we spoke to, the more we got the same responses. They were feeling over-worked, underpaid, stressed, anxious and lost. Even with careers that seemed great from the outside, they still felt lost and unfulfilled because it wasn’t what they truly wanted to do. In fact, 67% of our previous Kickstarter backers wanted a better career and over 87% of the general population are disengaged at work. The problem? They all wanted a more fulfilling career but how do you build the career of your dreams if you aren’t sure what it’s supposed to look like?
That’s why for the last 12 months, we’ve dedicated ourselves to creating a solution that will help millions of people across the world, just like you, design and create the career of their dreams.
- A career that has you staying back late at work because you want to – not because you have to.
- A career that has you smiling on your way to work – instead of only smiling on your way out.
- A career where you’re doing what you love, having an impact and feeling inspired to get to work every morning.
That’s what we want for millions of people across the world and that’s why we’ve developed the Career Journal.
The Career Journal is a unique journaling system that will help you get clear on exactly who you are and why you do the things you do with a step-by-step process to help you find, design and build a career that you’ll love based on that.
The core journal is your beautifully designed companion that will help guide you on your journey towards a life that has you feeling inspired. Filled with guided exercises and with plenty of space for reflection, it’ll help you calm your mind and give you an insight into the things that will truly make you happy. It also loops into your career journal...
With everything you need to find the path towards a life that has you smiling every morning, give yourself the chance to feel clear and in control about where your life is headed. In a world that’s filled with noise, give your voice a chance to be heard and get your core journal today. Don't take our word for it, read more here:
Whether you are a graduate confused by the career landscape, a job seeker deflated by uncertainty or an employee that’s feeling a lack of inspiration, our journals will help you confidently navigate the path towards a career that has you feeling fulfilled. Fast track your path to a successful career with one of our support packages which will provide you with the tools and support you need to succeed.

We have to be honest. When we started seeing the positive impact Journal Life was having on your lives and hearing all your inspirational stories, we felt humbled and honoured to be part of your journeys.
Journal Life IS making an impact on our own lives and those who have supported us, thanks to you! We are undoubtedly growing in confidence that our system works. Sure, there’s always going to be bits and bobs to tweak, but we are pretty damn close to creating a ubiquitous and empowering support tool for all demographics. So the more hands we can get this system into, the more aha moments we unlock, the more profound questions we ask, the more actions that are taken. As a result, the more people, communities and cultures positively change and grow. Ultimately, the world then becomes a better and more authentic place. Now, wouldn’t that be amazing?
Folks, this is more than just a journal, this is our dint in the world. Are you ready to be part of it?
