The Great Escape

From Your Corporate Career

Do you fantasize about escaping from your corporate career to do something completely different?

Can you relate to any of these scenarios?

leaf-1 (1)

You have that feeling of untapped potential within you - like you could be doing so much more, if only you knew what.

You’ve paid our dues, worked your butt off and had success. But, something is getting in the way of you feeling truly fulfilled. 

You may also feel crispy around the edges, burned-out, unmotivated.

leaf-1 (2)

You feel trapped in a cycle of working to pay your bills, and don't have much energy for the rest of life.

In the past when you’ve been at the crossroads of Money and Meaning, you’ve  chosen money (perhaps correctly – no judgement!). We all have to pay our bills, but couldn’t we have money and meaning? 

leaf-1

You fantacize about breaking free. You've tried "all the things" but nothing ever really changes, and you feel like you're settling.

It’s not for lack of trying. You’ve tried so many things, yet you still feel stuck and you don’t really know why. It seems easy for others, so why is it so hard for you?

Do you have a secret career you're holding in your heart, but something is holding you back from going after it?

So many of us are burned out. We can't fit one more thing into our busy days. Yet, we have a deep inner knowing that there's something we're meant to be doing. But, what?

Plus, we've been on one path for so long now ... how do we change to another without losing all we've worked so hard for? How do we create the space for change? Should we even try?

This is the very definition of being stuck. You're in a place in your career where you things are going pretty well, but you know it's not quite right and you know you need to make a move, but ... you don't.

I'm here to tell you that nothing has gone wrong. It's not your fault that you haven't made a move. There are, in fact, mysterious, invisible forces at work within us all that hold us back from going after what we really want. And the more you want it, the more these forces dig in.

What you need to know is that there is a way forward. Your way.
YOU CAN ESCAPE AND HAVE THAT CAREER YOU'RE HOLDING IN YOUR HEART.
NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE NOW.

Imagine ...

  • Gaining clarity on your Life’s Work, your unique genius, and your destiny code
  • Connecting to your vision and mission in life and having the tools to bring this to life
  • Accessing your confident, calm, curious, compassionate Self with proven tools
  • Knowing where and how to start
  • Having more to go on than, “Feel the fear and do it anyway.”
  • Showing up for yourself and being the person you know in your heart you are, doing the things you want to do
  • Unlocking, once and for all, what’s been holding you back and having a deep knowing that moving forwards is totally doable.

Hi, I'm Karen

Corporate escapee with a BA in Psychology and an MBA in Marketing. I used to call myself a Marketing VP or Brand Strategist. Lately, I’ve tried on many hats: Life Coach, Transformational Career Guide, Secret Way Finder, Life Purpose Activator, Astrologer, Quantum Human Design Specialist, Equine Bodywork Practitioner, Ashtanga Yoga Instructor, Flower Photographer, Writer, Nature Lover. I’m also a 2/4 Splenic Projector, a Scorpio, an INFJ, HSP. Whew!

That was me. Always finding ways to see my true self and searching, aching and yearning for work with purpose. I wanted to make a difference in the world, yet I couldn’t quite find the right thing and always ended up feeling stuck and disappointed in myself.  On my journey to discover the career I’d been holding in my heart, I stumbled into all the potholes, made so many wrong turns, and tried so many things (see above list). Here’s the thing: I made all the mistakes, so you don’t have to.

I invite you to step onto the path that leads to the career you’re holding in your heart. It’s not too late. You’re not too old (or too young). You have what it takes.

My Journey.

I had finally escaped the corporate world, but when I tried all the things that were on my heart, things didn’t really work out. I made it mean a lot of terrible things about me – “I don’t have what it takes; others can do this, but not me; I’m too quiet and sensitive”.

But, with some perseverance (and many wrong turns), I found my way. When I look back on “my mistakes”, I can see where I went off track, where I lost faith in myself. I can also see where I got back on track and learned what I’m supposed to be doing in the world. 

What I learned is that my Life’s Work is to be a guide for women who yearn for more meaning and purpose in their work. I help them break through the patterns and habits that no longer serve them so they can be free to do what they came here to do.

I’ve trained with different teachers, lasering in on how to discover purpose and meaning in our work lives because that’s what I longed for the most. I don’t have “the answer” because we all hold the answer within us. I help you discover your own “answer” and your way forward. 

I am here to share magical and practical tools and methods that will help you go after your Life’s Work. I do this because I truly believe that we need more women to being true to themselves and doing the work they know needs to be done. 

That’s why I’m on a mission to help women navigate career changes into more meaningful work.  We need you! 

Turn your yearning into a career that is filled with meaning and purpose.

What I’d really like you to know is that you don’t have to settle. You can make a move with confidence and clarity once you tap into your own unique career blueprint and create a path forward, doing it your own way.

If you’ve been in your career for some time now and it’s no longer lighting you up, it might be time to make your move to work that is more fulfilling and meaningful. What you need is your very own, unique blueprint to guide you. And you need to know how to navigate through what’s been holding you back.

 

How this works:

I’m a career coach who doesn’t do resumes or advise on job search strategies. What I do is help you get on the path your your heart-based Life’s work – whether that’s a new career, your own business, a side-hustle, or volunteer work.

I do this by getting you back to your Wise Self (and out of worry, anxiety, self-doubt, uncertainty), so you can align with your power and make the best decisions during career transitions. We make the best decisions when we know who we are, and are moving towards what we want versus moving away from what we don’t want.

I use many tools. I teach you these tools either through my on-line courses (COMING SOON!) or through coaching with me. My on-line courses allow you to cost-effectively DIY it, if you’re a Do-It-Yourselfer like me. When you enroll in a course, you can supplement it with some coaching to gain clarity or work on something that is really sticky.

My 1:1 coaching programs meet you exactly where you are and provide access to me. I am standing outside your life (not caught up in the emotions) where I have perspective, expertise, tools, and experience to help you navigate the parts of your journey in a way that is customized exactly to you and where you’re at.

I am in your corner as a guide, a mentor, a coach, a thinking partner, a sounding board. I am standing outside of your life, not caught up in the emotions (though I have so been there at some point or another!) and am trained to provide powerful shifts that empower you, that help you break old habits and patterns that no longer serve you. All in service to you stepping into your power so you can do the work you came here to do.I do

Plot Your Escape to the Career You're Holding in Your Heart.

This is my flagship six-week Astrology-based program designed to get you started when you want to escape your corporate career (or any career you’ve been in for a long time). 

It is designed to align you with your truest, most powerful self, and gain clarity about what you really want so that when you make your move, you actually get where you want to go.

Heart-based moves are different than regular career moves. You feel more vulnerable, and may even have to stand out after spending a lifetime fitting in.

Let the stars guide you with Astrology, Quantum Human Design, and the Gene Keys.

The
"Get Back In"
Program

Sometimes you get spit out of your corporate career because of life circumstances (e.g. caring for a parent, illness, burn-out, a move, getting laid off, having kids). 

Getting back in can be tougher than you thought. Sometimes it’s you (you feel shame or out-of-the-loop, or you’re burned out), and sometimes it’s them (A gap on the resume! Oh no!)

Also, maybe you want back in, but in a different way – a way that includes you, but maybe you’re not exactly sure what that means.

I recommend 12 weeks for this type of exloration. We start with four weeks and go from there.

Coming soon!

The
Stay
Program

You’ve been in your careeer for awhile and you’re feeling done with it, but it’s not done with you.

Maybe you have golden handcuffs and are a year or two from retirement, so it’s smart to stay, but harder to stay with each passing day.

You may need better strategies than biting your tongue, caring too much, trying to prove yourself yet again.

I often recommend you stay as long as you can to reap the benefits of a long career. 

This is a four-week program.

Full Disclosure:

I have stepped out “into the wild” as I like to call it. This means I’m outside the culture embracing magical tools like Astrology, Human Design, and the Gene Keys. These modalities have been so powerful in my life that I share them with others as much as I can.

That said, I’m also grounded in the practical. Twenty-five years in the corporate world will do that to you. I am also trained in practical, feet-on-the-ground tools that are designed to empower you and smooth transitions to better work.
