What Does “Eat Your Career” Mean?

We believe work can be a delicious, nourishing experience and we love helping professionals figure out what that means for them and how to achieve it.

The idea for Eat Your Career came about when our founder, Chrissy Scivicque, a certified nutritionist and natural born foodie, realized that career advice and nutrition advice aren’t all that different. Depending on your habits and choices, you can create a nourishing, satisfying experience or you can find yourself hungry and unfulfilled. Learn more about the Eat Your Career concept by reading the following two articles: The Fast Food Career / The Slow Cooked Career.

    Hey Chrissy!
    You left a comment on my blog and I thought I’d come check out yours! I like your layout and your topics. I’m very interested in nutrition myself, although I am never going to study it as a profession. I just like to discover what gives me the most energy and what food is the best for my body:)

    Keep up the good work and I hope this site becomes a success too!!
    Cheers

    Oh, and Parker, if you like the layout the theme is called Headway. It’s super easy to customize and I haven’t done all that much. Thanks for the kind words.

    Love the site, Chrissy. Can I use some of the articles in my college class I teach?? I will refer my students to your site. Great stuff from someone who really “gets” the current work environment.

    I still say we need to collaborate on something…small conference/retreat of some kind????

    Let’s do it. You are AWESOME!!!

    Hi Chrissy,
    I stumbled upon your site through Ms. Career Girl which I see that you are already familiar with. I like your post, 20 Inconvenient Career Truths. I look forward to reading the rest of what your site has to offer.

    Hi Chrissy,

    I like your site, and I like what you have to say. I saw your comment from erica.biz, and checked it. I agree with you, your career is important and taking the time to figure it out is instrumental in actualizing it!

    I am one of those doing exactly that! Quit my job, went and saw a psychic, traveled the nation for 6 months to sight-see and landed half way across the nation in CA to start my new blogging career.

    Keep up the good work, and I really look forward to seeing your site succeed.

    Chrissy, it’s your friend from the APC Conference a few years back. I just wanted you to know that you have been an inpsiration to me and I just wanted you to know that my career is still taking off in a very good way. I have since graduated with my masters degree in Operations Management from the Univserity of Arkansas, I have been accepted in the USAF Palace Acquire Program as an Item Manager and I moved from Florida to Oklahoma in order to take that position. I have never forgotten the training that I received in your session during the APC Conference and I thank you for everything that you have done. I thank you again and hope that you keep in touch. Have a great day.

  14. Daniela says:

    I’ve noticed that yesterday was your last day of “101 Goals in 1001 Days”. I can hardly wait to read your comments on that experience.
    Have a nice day
