Kary Oberbrunner left his day job to pursue his dream job—Igniting Souls. Through his writing, speaking, and coaching, he helps individuals and organizations clarify who they are, why they are here, and where they should invest their time and energy.
Kary struggled finding his own distinct voice and passion. As a young man, he suffered from severe stuttering, depression, and self-injury. Today a transformed man, Kary invests his time helping others achieve their true potential. He is the founder of Redeem the Day, which serves the business community, and Igniting Souls, which serves the non-profit community.
The author of several books, he earned his doctorate in Transformational Leadership. Kary also serves as a founding partner on the John Maxwell Team. He and his wife Kelly are blessed with 3 amazing children and live in Columbus, OH.
Like 86% of the population Kary felt imprisoned by his day job. He knew to break free from prison he needed a plan, just like Andy Dufresne. Rather, than just dream, he decided to turn his passion into a full-time gig. After “going pro” he put his 9 step plan in a book called Day Job to Dream Job.
