Bio
Hi! I am Evelyn Van Til and I am a dynamic speaker, blogger, and coach specializing in Gen Y career and workplace issues. I serve students and young professionals by helping you answer the question of what you are going to be when you grow up.

If you are ready to create a vision of happiness and success complete with realistic action plans, I provide Powerful Transformations College-to-Career Coaching through my company, Lyrical Purpose. If you are looking for a life transforming experience that grows you as a leader, check out the Law of Being 12-week interactive program or for a 3-day empowerment program that will completely re-write the rules in your life to bring unlimited potential success and happiness check out Life Potentials.

I am a contributor at My Classroom RULES! where I write career advice articles, provide tools, workshop ideas, and support for teachers. I frequently contribute to discussions online, as well as write an engaging blog at Lyrical Purpose Young Professsionals.

I'm also a professional speaker delivering keynote speeches and workshop presentations at universities, conferences and corporations around the country. Check me out at Speaker’s Site, Linked IN, Facebook, and My Space!

Prior to starting Lyrical Purpose, I spent ten years at The Ohio State University as an Academic and Career Counselor, empowering that challenging leap from college to career. In this capacity, I work with students, young professionals, parents, faculty, deans, and other members of leadership at The Ohio State University to change the energy in education.

I graduated from Illinois State University in 1995 with a Bachelors’ in English and in Classical Studies. After taking a year off for reflection, research, and growth I began my studies at The Ohio State University in 1996 and completed my Master’s in English in 1998.

Life Potentials Training

Category: Consulting
Description
Everyone has potential. Everyone has dreams. Everyone has plans and desires. Not everyone takes action to reach their potential, live their dreams, and live as they desire and choose to. In fact, while most people truly want to live in a different world, they don’t know how they can actually effect the change they’d like to see, and so, they do nothing.

How ready are you to be the spark that ignites your life and the lives of those you live and work with? If you’re ready, then it’s time to come to iPEC’s Life Potentials Training, where you can create your future, now.

Law of Being

Category: Motivation / Inspiration
Description
The Law of Being is a system of automatic attraction that can be used to create happiness, health, wisdom, and wealth in your life and in the lives of those you work and live with. It is a system for full engagement in your life, including on the job and in your relationships. It is a system that helps you remember who you are and why you’re here, and helps you live to your potential and share that with others. It is a system of being who you really are, instead of acting in a way that you believe will get you what you want. Finally, it’s a system of self-development that will help you realize dreams you may never even have had, and break through any obstacles that prevent you from making those dreams a reality. It is a program –quite literally – just for, and all about, YOU!
