Greetings From Sunny Southern California!
As we rapidly approach the end of 2018, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for another amazing year. I extend my heartfelt gratitude for being given the opportunity to collaborate with each of you on your exciting life changes. We worked hard and had some good laughs along the way!
I also want to share a few updates with all clients past and present, as well as those considering working with me in the future:
I’ve recently changed my service offerings which you will see reflected on the Services page. The biggest change is that I no longer offer the Full-Service Coaching-Consulting package. Whereas I used to offer a package of 4 sessions with a semi-structured framework, the only packages I now offer are for Resume, Cover Letter, and LinkedIn reviews. In place of the Full-Service package I will shift focus to a Pay-Per-Session approach. My full menu of services will still be offered just as before, but with the simplicity of pay-as-you-go. This approach is more responsive to individual needs. Simply put, not everybody needs 4 sessions or the package structure.
As some of you know who have recently contacted me, I have very limited availability for the duration of 2018. I will do my best to schedule existing clients as quickly as possible. New consultation requests will be added to a wait list that I will begin contacting the week of January 7th. The first quarter of 2019 is shaping up to be a very busy coaching season, as that wait list is growing quickly. If you’d like to be scheduled for a complimentary consultation I encourage you to email me ASAP and request your name be added to the wait list.
As a career coach-consultant I have the pleasure of hearing the fascinating stories of so many people from so many different backgrounds. I truly love it! And because your time is valuable, I try not to talk too much about myself on our calls… unless, of course, I feel one of my personal stories might be helpful. So I thought it would be fun to share a few fun facts that you might not know about me:
Did you know my partner and I raise birds? We have a large coop that currently houses 5 chickens, 3 pigeons, 3 quail, and 2 ducks. The best part is, most of them are rescues and they provide fresh eggs! I grew up on a small hobby farm in Michigan and I feel so fortunate to continue that tradition at our Los Angeles home. Interestingly enough, the city of Los Angeles has a long history of farming and to this day it’s not unusual to find homeowners in L.A. who raise poultry or even have horses. Our neighbor raises pigs and sheep, yet we’re only 15-minutes from the skyscrapers of downtown.
Clearly I love animals, but did you know I used to own a pet sitting and dog walking service? I built the business from the ground up and at one point had a team of 7 dog walkers. When I moved from Michigan I sold the business to one of my employees and it’s still in business to this day.
Speaking of my job history, did you know I worked at Burger King? It’s been 20 years but that experience shaped my work ethic and is still fondly remembered. You can read more about that story in my latest Psychology Today article.
