RESULTS: Kept Dream Job, Doubled Salary

After years of temp office work, Seth finally landed a dream job. There was only one problem: it didn’t pay enough. Seth was on the verge of quitting in exchange for financial stability. So we got to work. After three one-on-one meetings, Seth had newfound courage and a concrete plan. Seth negotiated a HUGE raise (DOUBLE SALARY!)- and proved you can get paid to do what you love.

"Like all the best advice I've ever received, Darren wisely got to the heart of the matter. He was able to understand what was important me, what I needed, and inspired me to take the risk to get both." - SETH

RESULTS: Career Change (Academia to UX Design), Higher Salary 

Julia liked her job as an academic librarian, but she secretly wanted an exciting career in design. She used her network to land an interview at an excellent firm, but now she needed help. How would she show them what she really brings to the table if she had no industry experience on her resume? I taught Julia how to nail the career-changing interview using my Most Valuable Story Technique. She got the job! And higher pay! Julia loves her new career.

"I had a sense that my skills would cross over, but it was hard for me to know how to speak to them during the interview. Darren can see who you are and help you communicate the whole of your value to the outside world. He clarified how to frame my skills for a new audience. He helped me draw out my own voice." - JULIA

RESULTS: Left a Toxic Workplace, Landed a GREAT new Job

Chris kicked ass at his job. He skillfully handled risky projects and supported his coworkers when times were tough. He did everything he was supposed to do to become indispensable at work. And then his boss went insane. The company culture became toxic and emotionally draining. Chris' boss was burning him out, and firing his favorite coworkers left and right. Chris knew he needed to leave, but he also knew his crazy boss would try to make his life difficult. In our one-on-one, Chris learned 3 phrases to disarm his selfish boss and say goodbye for good. He also learned how to network in a new city. Chris moved to Houston and got a new job in less than 2 weeks.

"Darren helped me not only better understand what my current work dilemma was, but helped me see it in a completely new way. Because of our discussions, I felt confident and prepared to leave a toxic situation and take a leap of faith. I've moved on to a much better place, personally and professionally. I can't thank him enough." - CHRIS

Do The Work You Were Made For

Figure out exactly what you should do with your career given who you are, where you've been, and what you believe in.

You've had a few different jobs but none you felt great about.
You know what industry you'd like to be in, but you think you don't have the experience, education, or network to get started.
You regularly feel like you have no idea what you're really doing in life.
You feel like you aren't living up to your potential.

If you want to wake up everyday and feel like you're doing your life's work, but the path doesn't seem clear, consider Do The Work You Were Made For.

This longer-term coaching package is for people who need more than a few hours to make a big change. We'll meet at least 3 times, and dive deeply into your situation to learn what's really holding you back.

We'll make a plan of action to carry out right away, and you'll receive direct support as you start to act.

Then you'll get a written analysis of yourself, along with a blueprint for the next six months to one year. 

This is the real deal. If you want to really turn your career around, work with someone who will be fully invested in your success, and make a dent in the universe, apply today!

It sucks to feel stuck in your career.

It really sucks to feel like you don’t have the time, money, skills, or connections to do anything about it.

I know because I’ve been there.

And I’ve helped a lot of people who’ve been there too.

I want to tell you something.

Something I’ve learned helping so many different people.

(And I want you to know this even if you decide not to work with me)

No matter how far behind you think you are--
No matter how improbable your dream career might be--
No matter how much self-limiting garbage is swirling around in your beautiful brain--

You can take a step in the right direction.

You can get paid for work you love.
