One Client, One Coach, One Goal

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking down your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.

What Clients are Saying:

"I'm so glad I decided that my career was worth it. Looking for a job is hard work at a very stressful time in your life, but having Linda as a Career Coach kept the process focused and positive. She was well prepared for our meetings, had a specific agenda and made each session time well spent. My one big regret was that I spent the first six months thinking I could do it myself."

"A career search is really many parts – it’s tactical, it’s emotional, it’s focused, and it’s personal. You addressed all of those things with such a positive, engaging, and skillful manner that I knew very quickly that success was all but guaranteed – as you strive for that yourself and in turn push your clients to achieve it. Your process and diligence for facilitating a successful search was brilliant! We went down a set path together, yet one that you were flexible with and catered to me specifically, and the results were quantifiable each step of the way."
