- 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.

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."

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
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.
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.
