Dear Friend:

Are you considering a career or job change? Before you take that next step, take some time to hit the pause button, strategize and really ask yourself 1) what do I want? 2) what do I do best (and how do I leverage this)? and 3) what is a fit for me at my current life stage?

Read more about Eight Steps to a Successful Career Change, join us this month for two powerful, action-oriented workshops and start defining what type of work will support you inside and out. (Note: early bird pricing ends January 13th.)

If you’re unable to make the workshops, please contact us at for more information on 1-on-1 coaching.
