Client Story: Stepping off the "career ski lift"

When I met Nick he felt like he was treading water, clocking in and clocking out, looking up the corporate ladder without any real enthusiasm.

He felt like there was something missing.

After six months together Nick landed his dream job working in sports betting. He's stepped off the "career ski lift" and has created a career at the intersection of what he's naturally good at, what he's interested in, and his life priorities.

He trusts himself more and notices what gives him energy and …

Client Story: Feeling lighter, clearer, more energized

Do you ever feel attached to your career looking a certain way? This is what was happening with my client, Yui.

She was able to ask herself what do I actually want from my ca…

Client Story: Letting go of people pleasing

When we have a tendency to people please we can lose touch with ourselves to the extent that we don't even know how to articulate what we want out of our career.

That's what happened with my client Alex.

Even though she held a coveted role at a prestigious ad agency her energy was low. And she couldn't pinpoint why or where to focus to fix it.

Through my 1:1 program she recognized it was her people pleasing tendencies that were getting in the way of creating a career and life she loved…
