I totally get it, I got stuck once, too. I was miserable most days at work. I dreaded Mondays and counted down the days until Friday. I lost sleep thinking that I was “wasting my life at a job that I hate!”
Thoughts used to bang around my head like the insides of a pinball machine: Do I try to move up? Do I look for a lateral move? Should I just change careers completely – what would I do? Or do I want to start my own business?
I spent the better part of 3 years stuck with those thoughts.
If I had only dedicated the time focusing on narrowing down my choices, I would have been so much further ahead!
Those 3 years were plagued with lack of focus and inconsistent action.
I was paralyzed with choice.
Many are right where you are, but most people get overwhelmed when they think of a career change. You don’t have to do it alone.
If you can relate I can help you!
The first few times I tried to switch my career, I did not move as efficiently as I could have and wasted years where I could have been living my dream life.
I don’t want that to happen to you.
Through my journey, I’ve developed a three month process that will help anyone looking for their next step professionally.
– Map out a working blueprint of your skills and goals, which will continue to help you make life and career decisions, quickly evaluate opportunities and feel confident when applying for jobs.
– Evaluate your strengths and skills and know confidently what it is you really want in your next role, company and employer.
– Bolster your communication and confidence to clearly articulate your unique value to any future employer, boss and colleagues.
– Identify and face personal issues and blocks head on, rather than keeping them bottled up in order to to dissolve their power over you.
– Increase your own self awareness and gain confidence in yourself and your abilities.
– Create a bigger picture result in order to get to the “yes, I am pursuing X job now at X salary” and taking tangible steps in your search for more purpose-driven, meaningful work.
I have a clear process that helps you work through your questions regardless of your obstacles. This works for EVERYONE.
Move Your Vision Into a Reality
Research shows that a growing number of professionals are no longer inspired by their work. These professionals are experienced in their craft and very good at what they do, but they are often unfulfilled in their current jobs.
These professionals are busy, and most of the world would misinterpret their lack of time with fulfillment. However, most of the world fails to understand that there is limited fulfillment in building the dreams of your employers.
These professionals are searching for a professional step forward – they desire a change that reflects their value structure and the difference they hope to make in the world. Despite desiring this change I find that often, busy professionals get ‘stuck’ and just feel frustrated.
During the process our focus is on YOU, your LIFE and your CAREER because it all intermingles and it all matters. We do this with a non-linear, creative, yet structured approach to help you figure out your next career path.
This is YOUR time to design the career that YOU want, not what others think you should do or what you’ve been doing because “it makes sense”.
Nope! This proven structure gives you invaluable information about yourself. It’s a lifelong investment to find out what makes you tick and what you have to offer the world.
I’m Kori and I love being a Career Coach! I help busy professionals who feel disconnected from their work, who are wanting to find more fulfilling, creative careers, but need support to get started.
I’ve changed career directions 7x in my 20 years as a professional. Having successfully navigated each of those shifts, I have tons of experience working in corporate and creative environments. I’ve turned hobbies into side hustles and then into careers.
I take a non-linear creative approach that’s filled with both left and right brain activities. I love to create strong organizational structure, but then build fun into the process as well.
As a Career Success Coach, my beliefs are that:
If you’re ready to get the support, structure, and accountability you need to take the next step in your career, let’s chat.
Knowing exactly what the next step of your career will be. Crystal clear about your path to fulfillment.
You’re starting on a new career. One that excites and challenges you, and you’re confidently starting on the steps you need to be successful in your new role. You’re able to ask for what you need and able to clearly articulate it with confidence. Your vision is coming closer and closer to reality.
You know what you stand for and you easily share your vision with others. This reaffirms your purpose to all around you, making you sparkle in the eyes of others.
Other people will be drawn to you, and they’ll compliment and inquire about your brilliance as they walk alongside you.
While it sounds simple enough, many of us don’t take the time to celebrate our lives as fully as we should. This module is designed to reflect back and celebrate how far you’ve come, just how awesome you really are and start building a life and career based on your values, preferences, passions and strengths!

– We tap into the “Fountain of Inspiration” and start to explore the career themes that feel the most energized and test them out into the real world – i.e. networking events, meeting up with old colleagues, informational interviews, etc.
– During the test phase we can start to eliminate the ones that don’t feel the most energized until we boil it down into one viable career path that feels aligned, exciting and achievable!

When you’re clear you can go from:
– Dreading networking events and having to answer the question, “What do you do?” to looking forward to going to networking events and can’t wait for someone to ask you the question, “What do you do?”.
