Welcome to another episode of Dear Krachel, a monthly advice segment where we answer audience questions about life, career, relationships, existential angst, and anything that helps you become a more whole, fulfilled version of yourself.
On this episode, we’re answering questions from:
- Larry, a Thriver who struggles to give people a good response when they ask about his job, which he isn’t passionate about. How can he talk to people without sounding like a downer?
- Single Dimple, a hair stylist who’s scared that promoting her services will make her look like she’s begging (or worse, downright sleazy). How can she get over her fear and sell herself without being salesy?
- Chris, who has a boss that’s TERRIBLE at running her business. They barely have enough clients to stay afloat, but her boss isn’t willing to hear any feedback. Is it better to secretly job hunt or nicely tell her boss that this isn’t working?
- Michelle, another woman with a terrible boss! When business got slow, her boss promised her a minimum base pay, but it’s been weeks and nothing has changed. What do you do when your boss is giving you the run-around?
After you’ve listened, leave us a comment below to let us know if our advice for these four listeners resonated with you, too.

THIS ISN’T FATE
Carl Jung said, “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
A lot of us (these Dear Krachel letter-writers included) are, consciously or unconsciously, allowing deep-seated fears and old patterns to direct our life. If you don’t question and uproot those patterns, you’re guaranteed to keep getting the same results.
If you’re tired of patterns you either aren’t aware of (or are aware of, but can’t get rid of) controlling the direction of your life, and you’d like to take back that control, then that’s exactly what we do in 1-on-1 coaching.
