You're a...
Self-Directed Star

Your career tagline - "I've got this."

As a self-directed star, you can get results without someone peering over your shoulder.

You work best independently and efficiently making to-dos become ta-dahs!

When it comes to flexible and fulfilling work, you’re happiest when you can work in your own space at your own pace.

But how do I build a career as a Self-Directed Star?

1. Uncover Your Career Sweet Spot

Now that we know you you enjoy (and are great at) working solo, we need to fill in the rest of the picture. How do your passions, skills, and value-add align?

2. Explore New Paths Forward

Often we don’t know where to start because we don’t know what the options are! Let’s expand your view of what’s possible as a Self-Directed Star and where your coaching skills will be valuable.

3. Pitch Yourself and Your Story

Now we need to communicate to your target employer WHY you are the person they have been looking for all along with a well-honed pitch, resume, and LinkedIn profile.

Good news! You don't have to do this alone.
