The Process

- We will seek an intersection between skills and passion (aka interests). You don’t have to choose one over the other. In fact, it is not recommended.

- Learn how to conceptualize and organize your skills to leverage them for jobs you want even if you haven’t had the formal job titles. For example, if you’re a lawyer, you likely have strong skills in analysis, logical reasoning, strategy, research, interviewing, communicating, and writing. These are transferable skills that we will leverage to position you for other opportunities.

- Learn how to conduct systematic job market discovery and research to identify market demand, skills demand, market salary, hidden opportunities, skills gaps, and professional development options.

- Learn how to identify and vet professional development options to target skills gaps and develop and strengthen skills that are in demand.

- Refine your personal branding to gain a clear and compelling competitive advantage in the job market. Never leaving the burden of figuring out what you’re great at to your target market. Your personal marketing will be on point. Develop improved confidence, self-worth, and pride about your professional skills and career.

- Learn how to thoughtfully analyze your options and make informed decisions from a place of knowledge, strategy, and confidence. Protect the downside and make decisions based on knowledge and data instead of fear and unknowns.

- Create a strategic plan, so you will always know where you’re going, what you are working on, and how to get there. Build in resources and tactical strategies to keep you focused on career growth and career and life satisfaction. 


Methods

- We use qualitative market research methods to collect and analyze data from your responses and experiences allowing themes and patterns to emerge from the data from which we will use to conceptualize, organize, and further analyze to make informed decisions. 

- Using a systematic process, we will narrow options and make career decisions based on goals, interests, career and life satisfaction, in-depth job market research and demand, skills analysis, professional development research, and viability. 

- Work processes step by step to gather information in a systematic and organized way, so we can analyze and organize information strategically as you progress through actions.

- In short, we collect data (your narratives, responses, and market research), and analyze the data (look for patterns, themes, and projections), and develop a career profile (personal branding, scenario building, and strategic action plans), to narrow options and help you make the most informed decisions about your career.    


The Results

- Gain clarity and learn how to evaluate and leverage your skills, value, and interests.

- Discover ideal job market opportunities and position yourself for opportunities even if you aren’t yet qualified for them.

- Professional branding and communication strategy to position you for the right opportunities and increase your lifetime earning potential.

- Strategic planning so you always know what you’re going after and how to get the results you want.

- A process that you will use again and again throughout the rest of your career.

My Research 

I have created a proven system that guides you through career exploration, career transition, decision making, career branding, professional development, and strategic planning that you will use every time you want to make a change.  

I have analyzed data from every one of my clients and consultation calls over the past 10 years. I have examined why they were seeking career transitions, what was missing from their lives and careers, and what they wanted to achieve.

I noted the barriers that they experienced while working with me, results that they were achieving, the questions they asked, and the resources and decisions that they needed to make satisfying career changes.

I have led hundreds of people through multiple test rounds so I could get as much feedback as possible. I wanted to make sure it was clear, organized, and that people got results. It had to be efficient, cost-effective, and cut down fluff. It also had to be fantastic and fun to do, too. 

I've done that and more. Now, I want to share it with you. 

 

 

"My job and career continue to be amazing; thank you so much for helping me with my career transition! I'm happy about my job almost every day I go to work." 
Ph.D. Academic Transition into Industry

Thank you for all of your help!"

Anyone looking to make a career transition.

If you are

  • A can-do, will-do person 

  • An action taker

  • Agreeable and coachable

  • Accountable for your progress and success

  • Ambitious and willing to put in effort

  • A reasonable risk taker willing to try new things

  • Committed to getting results, being accountable, and taking action to get the results you want

  • Knowing that life is too precious to stay stuck another day

This is not for

  • People who do not take action  or blame their lack of action on others

  • Excuse makers 

  • People stuck in a chronic defense mindset—excessive whining and complaining

  • Abusive personalities and drama makers 

NOTE: Some of these are perfectly human responses to life pain but they require a different intervention at this time.

Yes! Kristen holds regular office hours, coaching calls, and group chats so you can receive direct feedback and guidance on all of your work. 

If you plan to work through the program in real time, we recommend between 2-4 hours per week to watch the training, complete your growth assignments and — if you’d like — engage with our mentors and the community. Many of our students go through the program as best they can; pause and return to it as their schedule allows.

If you’re not able to carve out that much time at first, don’t worry. You get lifetime access to the training and can easily work at your own pace, on your own schedule. Most of our students have full-time jobs or businesses and families. This experience is designed to stretch you, but it can also be customized to your life.

The more focus and dedication you put into the program, the more you’ll get out of it. To be clear, there are no fast or guaranteed results.

Building a career that matters is not a linear event. This program mirrors the reality of entrepreneurship — it’s intense, time consuming, demanding and something you’ll work on for the life of your career.

NO FAIL GUARANTEE

You will receive a number of tools, techniques, strategies, and a system that can help you significantly when put into practice. We will work with you and support you to help you achieve outcomes.

You’ll have unlimited access for the life of the program. That way you can do it on your own and experience the benefits again and again, whenever you make a change.

We guarantee a system that if executed properly will get results. Of course, we cannot guarantee the individual performance of clients because that is dependent on individual factors that vary and are out of our control.

If you have participated in the weekly meetings and completed the prescribed exercises and have not achieved results at the end of the program, we insist on extending additional specialized support to you to help you make progress.
