Energizing your Life and Career from the Inside Out

Are you thriving in life and work? Or merely surviving?

Are you happy and fulfilled with the current direction of your life and career? Are you doing work that’s consistent with your values? At the next SHIFT Forum, Jermaine Davis will share practical tips on how to live a life that’s aligned with your highest values, goals, and priorities. Topics will include personal branding, vision creation and casting, career engineering, managing fear, and conquering self-doubt. If you feel stuck and uninspired, Jermaine will help you get motivated, inspired, and unstuck so you can THRIVE and succeed in life, school or work. Get ready to laugh, learn, and have fun as you energize your life and career from the inside out.

You’ll leave Jermaine’s presentation with skills you can put into practice:

  • Managing stress and avoiding burnout during change and transition
  • Creating and living a values-based life that’s aligned with your highest priorities
  • Coping with life and career transitions using a five-step framework

Getting to TPT

Public Transportation

TPT is a half block from the Union Station light rail stop on the Green Line.

Driving Directions

  • Arriving from the south on I-35E
    Exit northbound I-35E at Kellogg Boulevard. Go right (east) onto Kellogg and follow Kellogg through downtown, past Wabasha & Robert Streets. You’ll see the Minnesota TeleCenter on your left at Kellogg and Jackson. Find an open parking meter or go one more block on Kellogg and turn left onto Sibley, and then turn left into the Lowertown parking Ramp.
  • Arriving from the north on I-35E
    Exit southbound I-35E at the Tenth Street/Wacouta exit. Follow Tenth Street to the stoplight and turn left onto Jackson Street. Continue south into downtown. Find an open parking meter or continue past Fourth Street to the Lowertown Ramp.
  • Arriving from the west on I-94
    Exit eastbound I-94 at the Fifth Street exit. Continue on Fifth Street into the center of downtown. At Jackson Street turn right (south) and look for street parking, or continue 1 1/2 blocks to the Lowertown Ramp.
  • Arriving from the east on I-94
    Exit westbound I-94 at the Kellogg-Mounds exit. Turn left onto Kellogg and go about a mile. At the Sibley Street stoplight turn right, go 1/2 block and turn left into the Lowertown Ramp, or look for an open parking spot on the street.


From 6-10 p.m., the fee for metered parking in downtown St. Paul is $1.00 per hour. TPT’s closest parking ramp is the Lowertown Ramp, located and accessible off Sibley and Jackson Streets (316 Jackson St.). The entrances are between Kellogg and 4th Streets. This ramp is connected to the TPT building. The evening parking rate is $4.00 after 5pm. Once you’ve parked, simply take the elevator to level P5 for the TPT lobby.

Because of major construction in downtown St. Paul, street closures may affect the above directions. We will do our best to post the latest information on this page. CURRENTLY: Jackson St. is under construction and full of traffic cones and construction equipment. The Jackson St. entrance to the Lowertown Ramp IS open–but it can be challenging to find with all the equipment on the street.
