Mission And Philosophy

I believe that anyone can have the job they desire.

I have upgraded my jobs from $12.00 per hour to $51.00 per hour in less than 5 years. (and I was NOT some 18 year old making $12.00 per hour. I’d hit rock bottom and that was the only job available. Hear my story here.)

I know how to upgrade your job search because I’ve lived it.

What I know for sure is, the biggest hurdle to landing your next best job is you. I help you get out of your own way and find a job that puts you on the path to where you ultimately want to be.

Whether you want to work from home with a more flexible schedule or you want to become an executive in the next 5-7 years, I can help.
