ARE YOU READY FOR CAREER PURPOSE, SATISFACTION, AND SUCCESS...JUST BY BEING YOURSELF?
Do you feel stuck in your career?
Do you have ambitions to get to the next level but you're not sure how to get there?
Do you feel like you’re meant for something more but don’t know exactly what it is?
Maybe you’re not sure of how to leverage your unique purpose, talents and strengths, or you’re not clear on what they are.
Successful professionals need support. They need coaches, mentors, teachers and peer networks to lean on to further their development and help navigate the inevitable challenges in their career, workplace or leadership.
It’s all too common for people to build and develop their careers based on happenstance and ego alone. The ego drives us in profound ways, both positive and negative, and we're often lured by things that give us instant gratification – things such as power, status, financial wealth, etc.
These things are important, but they alone only provide temporary satisfaction, and before you know it, you may find yourself right back at square one, wondering why you feel so dissatisfied. This is why so many people after five, 10, 20, or even 30 years into their careers, suddenly realize:
“Wait is this where I want to be? Is this really the work I should be doing, or am I meant for something more?”
We’re all meant for something more – and we can have that “more” by taking time to reflect on who we are, who we want to be, and what get's in our way, while committing to daily strategic actions that bring us closer to our goals.
This work involves:
-Deep work of your mind, body and soul
-Inquiry and curiosity about your values, motivations, skills and talents
-The courage to ask your inner self (I call this your inner mentor) what your real purpose and contribution is in the world
-Resilience, self-acceptance and self-love
-Commitment to consistent and strategic action
The reality is you already have most of what you need to get to that next level. All you need to do is learn how to listen to your inner self and commit to action.

Erin's insight, intuition, and coaching style led me on an exciting and unanticipated journey. She quickly established a safe environment with her keen listening, insightful observations, and sincere respect/appreciation for the unique value we each bring. Erin facilitated fascinating discovery sessions based on the worthwhile tools/exercises that were assigned as foundational work. I appreciated the structure of the tools mixed with her flexibility to address what emerged as most relevant in each one-on-one. Thanks to Erin, I have a much clearer path of how to contribute to the world in a more impactful way.
