Action Steps to apply to YOUR journey

Simplify your wardrobe by creating a color palette:

  1. Pick two base colors
  2. Then pick two accent colors 
  3. Go shopping and look for pieces that have one of your four colors 
  4. This way when you bring it home, you know you’ll have multiple pieces to wear with it

I’m rooting for you friends!

After going through our 5 day FREE Network to Hire workshop, one of the participants sent me this message: 

Thank you so much for the time and effort you took last week to offer a specific and valuable set of network tips. Prior to finding your class I had already identified the companies I had wanted to work for and started to network. I wasn’t getting many connections and wasn’t getting responses to what I felt like were targeted messages. After I finished your class I implemented your method and connected and received responses within one day from an executive in my #1 company. I’m very hopeful for my continued efforts using all of your suggestions. Thank you so much.

If you’re looking for that type of result, we’re starting our next FREE 5 day live workshop on February 22, 2021

This workshop is for you if you are a female leader who makes over 100k a year. We wanted to create a space for you to network and connect with each other.
