Eryc Eyl Show Notes

Eryc Eyl had worked for an organization for ten years and was laid off. He went broke and had to find a job. It wasn’t the job he wanted so he decided to do things differently from his last job and make his work an integral part of his life. By bringing his whole self to work he ended up creating the job he wanted. Listen to what Eryc did so you can learn to move onward and upward faster.

Eryc was born in Boulder, Colorado, and grew up in rural Northern Colorado with ducks, turkeys, chickens, cows, pigs, parrots, ferrets, raccoons, and dogs.

After high school he ran off to the East Coast to attend Vassar College, which forever changed his life, though not immediately.

After college, Eryc went broke living in Austin, but found the gravitational pull of Colorado too powerful to resist for long. He returned, attended graduate school at the University of Colorado, and has worked in nearly every function of businesses in nutrition, IT distribution, telecommunications, consumer packaged goods, and publishing.

Through Eryc’s diverse experience, he has developed a focus on improving the human experience of business. While he has worked in Corporate America for more than 20 years, Eryc has invented most of the jobs he’s had.

Eryc is an author, speaker, storyteller, coach, consultant, and DJ who helps working folks integrate their work with a meaningful, fun, and fulfilling life, so they can keep their heads and their hearts while keeping their jobs.

Eryc currently lives in Longmont, Colorado, with his incredibly talented actor/director/community organizer wife, his brilliant and kind 11-year-old daughter, and their overly affectionate cat.
