Several times in my career I've felt lost about where to take my career.
The harder I tried to figure out my next career move, the more frustrated I became. This scenario first played out in my life years ago when I was in a corporate job and feeling completely and utterly burned out. Since then I've been through this journey several times when I've been called to take my business to the next level.
I'll Let You in on a Little Secret
In times like this, the one thing that always keeps me going is the fact that I know how wonderful it feels to breakthrough to clarity! Do you have that knowing for yourself?
One day you are miserable, wondering if it's all worth it, wondering if you should just give up and go back to doing what you've been doing.
Then you have that breakthrough.
It may be a flash of insight as it was when I came up with the idea to start Green Career Central.
It might take the form of a dream as it did when I came up with my original business idea.
It might come in a series of insights that build one on top of the other as its done for a project I'm working on now.
The Feeling of Clarity Is Exquisite!
You feel enlivened, energetic, optimistic, passionate, and alive with anticipation for your newly envisioned future. You are clear, unwavering, and certain about the direction you want to take.
Your worries and concerns fall away, and you become focused on making your new vision of your future a reality!

What Will You Discover through the Green Career Focus Program?
When I left my corporate job over two decades ago to help people navigate difficult life transitions, my most popular program was called “Craving a Career Change.” People saw that I had made a huge leap in my own career, and they wanted to know how I did that! Since then I've dedicated myself to refining, streamlining, and improving this program to help people identify the work that resonates with their passions and values.
During this Coaching Program you'll move through a process of discovery, gaining new insights, confidence, and clarity at each turn.
Key Milestones You'll Achieve
You discover how to identify your passions and interests accurately and in the moment.
You create a detailed list of over 20 skills and 20 interests that have to contribute to your field. One of our clients called her list "the blueprint I've been yearning for."
You build a list of up to 40 green career ideas based on your skills and interests.
"The brainstorming sessions are a great tool for
capturing my random thoughts and actually
organizing them into cohesive career paths.

How Does the Find Your Green Focus Coaching Program Work?
Find Your Green Focus is a mix of self-reflection, exploration, brainstorming, and thinking outside the box. To make the most of the program, please plan to set aside time in your schedule to work through each assignment in order. Here's how it works.
1) You'll start with a series of carefully crafted messages that give you bite-sized activities to identify your green career niche. As you move through each activity, week by week, you gain momentum. You can see your progress and can return to review previous responses at any time.
You'll receive these assignments each weekday for five weeks--each one can be completed in 15 to 30 minutes. This delivery method keeps you focused on the task at hand. Rather than trying to figure out what to do next, you devote all of your time, attention, and effort on completing the assigned activities.
"Thanks to the exercises in the Find Your Green Focus,
I'm finally able to articulate what I'm passionate about
and how I want to use my passion in the world. Thank you so much."
~ Alice, Nevada
If you have a busy schedule and don't think you can incorporate a daily email into your schedule, not to worry! You can work on them at your own pace.
2) Next, I read your responses and provide you with personalized feedback. The more you include in your responses to the activities, the richer our coaching relationship will be. In my comments I'll let you know where you are making great progress, where you might dig a little deeper to get better results, and what to expect next. I'll also offer encouragement along the way to keep you going.
I will be available to comment on your responses to the activities in this program for up to three months from the date you start the program. Sometimes life happens and you need to take a break. I understand. Just come back to the program and start again where you left off.
3) In the fifth week, we'll set up a personal coaching session to discuss my Big Picture Goal. During the call we'll review the clues and ideas I've uncovered and talk about how to weave together the clues in a way that is most exciting, intriguing and fulfilling to me. We'll also talk about my next steps to determine how I'll move forward to research my target industry, find networking contacts, and prepare myself for my job search.
"I have a lot of different intersts and skills, but I have not figured otu how to put them all together on my own. It makes more sense and is so much more efficient to work with someone who has an experienced "eye-sense" for soemthing like this and can spot some obvious patterns right away."
~ J. L., New Mexico
