Interview with Tammi Brannan

Tammi Brannan helps clients of all ages to identify their purpose and ignite/reignite the momentum in their career. To achieve this Tammi uses her research based program Blueprint Process to help her clients determine their natural skills, passions, and values. In this interview, read how she created a career she loves, and how you can too.

How does someone identify if a career is right for them?

If your career is right for you, you will have energy left over at the end of each day to give to your family or hobbies vs. needing to GET energy from them just to make it to the end of the day. You will feel competent in your job vs. always needing confirmation from others that you’re doing well. You will feel “well-utilized” at work vs. feeling like your talent is wasted.

 

Was there any one thing that helped you identify your passions and create a career you love?

I studied my reactions to tasks and topics, whether in my career or home life over a period of 6 months. If something caused greater animation in my speech and gestures, I recorded it as a passion. I did the same if I felt an incessant desire to share it or publicize it. Finally, if it was a task I would turn to when tired, bored or frustrated, that was always an indicator of greater passion. I used this self-study to custom-design the career that I love still today, almost 10 years later.

 

Do you have a favourite experience from your speaking career?

My favorite experience was just this last summer at the 4th Annual Summit for Advisors in Utah. I was given the last spot in the agenda, which is my favorite. It allowed me to really get to know the participants and the topics. I was able to synthesize a lot of what they had heard throughout the week into my talk, so it consequently had a greater effect on the participants. The feedback I received made the extra work so worthwhile.

 

Who or what inspires you most?

I’d say it’s a combination between historical figures, such as Lincoln and Churchill and my clients. Historical figures inspire me because of the odds they faced, and their commitment to their message. My clients inspire me for similar reasons: they are each committed to fulfilling their potential, so consequently face many hardships and develop great resilience.

 

How did you begin your speaking career?

I began my speaking career unintentionally! I am so committed to sharing the message of the Blueprint Process that I was willing to do whatever it took to spread it quickly. It wasn’t until a year or two later that I realized how much I enjoy speaking. I believe my first formal talk was 3 hours long delivered to realtors.

 

What are your biggest goals in your life/career currently?

My BHAG (Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal) is to “collect a band of misfits who want to change the world.” This literally came to me in my sleep a couple of weeks ago, and I am super committed to it. Every client I’ve ever worked with has felt a “misfit” with society at one point or another in their lives. This dissonance is the niche they are meant to fill in society. Whether it’s something from their past or a passion they want to share, my goal is to give them the courage and confidence to pursue it and a stage from which to deliver it.
