I'm a career coach and personal branding coach who helps people who are dissatisfied with their jobs get to a place where they absolutely love what they are doing. Ask me anything!

I believe the greatest good we can do for ourselves, the people around us, and the world, is to do work that is in alignment with what we love, and what we believe in.

As a career coach, I’ve spent the last 5 years helping people who are dissatisfied with their job get to a place where they absolutely love what they are doing—something where they are making both an impact and money. 

.I help the following 2 kinds of people:

-People who have no idea what they want to do for their career. (I help them get clarity.)

-Freelancers and employees who have an idea of what they want to do but are struggling to make it happen. (I help them land meaningful work they love consistently.)

I HELP PEOPLE GET CLARITY BY... looking at their ideal lifestyle, values, strengths, skills, and purpose. Then we mush everything together to come up with some tangible ideas. Next, I guide my clients through the process of researching and trialing these ideas so they know with absolute certainty what is the best fit for them. We also look at any fears or limiting beliefs that might be holding you back.

I HELP PEOPLE LAND MEANINGFUL WORK THEY LOVE CONSISTENTLY BY... first helping them get clear on their list of ideal job criteria. Next, we get super clear on their personal brand (what they do, why they do it, how they do it, and what makes them unique), spruce up their LinkedIn, resume, and other social media to match (possibly even a website, too!), and create a job search strategy.

My clients leave with clarity around what they what they do and the knowledge necessary to successfully brand and market themselves, so they can continually land their dream jobs/contracts now, and into the future.

I'm based in Vancouver, BC where I meet with clients at my office space, but I also work with people remotely via Zoom or phone.

Ask me anything!

I'm not super active on social media (it's an introvert thing, PLUS I find it not the most efficient way to market my biz)... BUT you can still creep me if you like:

LinkedIn    

Instagram   

Facebook

 

Pssssst... I'm an introvert. Hence, why I'm hiding behind a book (obviously!).

Here's a few:

  • You're mistreated and management doesn't listen to your concerns or respect your boundaries.
  • You feel exhausted and drained at the end of the day, despite having already tried to make changes at work that would increase your level of satisfaction.
  • The things that are most important to you in your work aren't present in your current role, and there's no possibility of that happening in the future.
  • You don't feel physically safe.
  • You feel the urge to try something new!

How do you make the procedure of deciding on what to do with one's life, less daunting?
Jul 4, 6:19AM EDT0

I break it down into a step-by-step process. Actually, here's part of a testimonial found on the homepage of my website:

"Rebecca's step-by-step process made the whole procedure of "figuring out what to do with my life" less daunting. I have now come up with a concrete plan to go to culinary school and begin a cooking video blog & web series. " -Hayley Beamish, Vancouver, BC

Why have you limited your coaching to help only two types of people?
Jul 4, 3:59AM EDT0

It's who I enjoy working with the most. Also, it's helpful from a marketing perspective to narrow down who you work with so when someone finds you online (or talks to you), they know whether or not you can help them. (If it's too vague, it's confusing to people and then you won't attract anyone.)

How would you coach someone who have spent 10+ years studying a certain field but ended up not liking the work environment and at the same time scared of trying something else that might not pan out?
Jul 2, 7:24AM EDT0

Sounds like a challenging situation, for sure! But, making a change (as understandably scary it may be) is something your future self will definitely thank you for.

I can never guarantee a client will 100% like what they choose to go into next after working with me, but, I can guarantee that we will be able to make the best possible guess. First, we'd take a look at your skills that you've acquired over those 10 years and pull out the transferable ones (i.e., the ones that would apply across various industries). Then we'd specifically focus on the ones you actually enjoy. That way, you're not starting at square one with your new career.

Next, we'd look at your work values, strengths (what you're naturally good at), ideal lifestyle, and purpose, then mush everything together to brainstorm possible career ideas. From there, you'd research those ideas more to make sure whatever you choose is the best fit. Talking to people in the areas you are interested in moving into would be an important part of this research process.

Hope this helps!
