There is a troubling trend of college graduates, young professionals, and business people who feel lost, frustrated by information overload, unclear about their goals, and lack a clear plan to help them find the career that's rewarding and fulfilling.

“What pains me most about today’s difficult-to-navigate work culture is to see many young professionals waste precious years on the wrong career path, in dead-end or unfulfilling jobs, or starting businesses unsuited to their talents and aspirations. That’s why I’ve dedicated my more than two decades of successful recruitment, coaching, corporate networking, and personal experience toward helping dissatisfied professionals and recent grads land their dream job, or launch their ideal startup. My own career trajectory has given me the tools, vision and key business connections so vital to helping my coaching clients find and pursue their true calling.”
