“Figure out what you want your life to look like first, then come up with
ways to generate income—hopefully that you enjoy—that will allow you
to have as much of that life as possible.” Valerie Young, Changing Course
I partner with people through a process of defining a realistic lifestyle and brainstorming income generating ideas to live that life based on their interests and passions. For some that means a job change, for others it’s a part time income stream, and yet for others it’s entrepreneurship. We create action items, set up an accountability/support structure, and explore resources. Along the way, we identify self defeating and external obstacles and ways to overcome them. I work with people at any stage in their process. We partner to identify what you need from a career coach.
Who Do I Work With?
I work with the person who feels stuck in a soul crushing job and daydreams of freedom or doing something different. I work with the person who is not interested in working for someone else or isn’t interested in the jobs available to them. I work with the person who wants more flexibility in their schedules. The person who can’t find a job that suits them…i.e. interests, temperment, lifestyle. For example someone who doesn’t want the 8 to late spending it in a cubicle life. The free lancer looking for other streams of income is also welcome.
If you are burnt out in your career, want more flexibility, reject the cubicle life, or the 8 to late lifestyle, or need income generating ideas then I work with you. Call me, I offer free 20 minute phone consults.
Why Work With Me?
Due to life circumstances, I learned early on, I would have to be creative and go after what I needed and wanted. That led to many financial endeavors pursued outside my 9-5 job. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have spent nearly 20 years helping individuals and families who struggle with abuse and neglect, teen pregnancy, criminal activity, domestic violence, and homelessness. I loved helping the kids aging out of foster care identify and pursue their dreams. I have helped them improve their lives by helping them discover their strengths, their emotional and practical roadblocks to optimal functioning. Often times, keys to their growth came from identifying and changing their self limiting beliefs. I’ve also helped them by offering a non-judgemental place to express themselves, provided feedback, brainstormed ideas, assisted in problem solving, and decision making. When appropriate, I’ve challenged them and held them accountable. I’ve connected them to necessary resources. I can do the same for you. I can help you to brainstorm and clarify your avenues to living the lifestyle you desire. I can help you problem solve roadblocks, change self limiting beliefs and tap into your strengths and interests. I can provide you resources to point you in the direction that you want to go. I can provide encouragement, accountability, and support.
You will walk away with at least one viable option and next action steps to pursue. I can not guarantee that you will land the perfect job or be a successful entrepreneur or do it within the time frame in which you create your next chapter. That is entirely up to you, but I will do what I can to help you along the way.
