Where Work and Heart Meet

If you’re committed to finding, creating, or designing a work/life you love, you’ve come to the right place!

“Since working with Career Enterprises, the last five years have been the happiest in my life. I love every day.”

Robin Sheerer
founder & President

I understand if you’re finding it hard to figure out what’s next for you. Many years ago I confronted the same dilemma. I was shocked to discover that a Masters Degree, although extremely valuable, did not guarantee that I’d know what I wanted to be when I grew up. 

It took me sixteen years of being employed before I realized that I really wanted to work for myself. In 1981, I created a business offering training in human relations. It fit with my background in Social Work and utilized my skills, but lacked a focus.

After experiencing how challenging it was to change careers, I decided to share what I had learned by offering career and professional development coaching. 

I’m so glad I chose this direction because there is nothing I enjoy more than talking to people about their work and helping them blossom in their work/lives.

Books by Robin Sheerer

After many years of leading career workshops and working one-on-one with individuals I decided to capture in writing what I’d learned and thought was most valuable for people.

No More Blue Mondays: Four Keys to Finding Fulfillment at Work won the national Ben Franklin award for best career book of the year in 2000. Unlike the usual career books on how to pursue success to “get ahead,” I focus on how to find, create, and design work that is satisfying and fulfilling. In addition to constructive tools and no-nonsense advice, the book is filled with inspiring true stories of my clients.
