settling at work

It's time to quit

Add your name to the waitlist to be the first to know when it opens and get bonus tips and motivation to help you with your career until then.

Career Path Navigator enrollment has ended.
It will open again in July 2022.

    In the corporate world, you look at ladders, existing org charts, and job openings to determine your next move. That approach is why you aren't happy in your career. You aren't looking at what you want. You're looking at what is available, what you've done, and trying to make yourself fit. It's time to stop.

    Doing "what makes sense"


    As a society, we are taught to settle and that we can't have it all, except for the select few. We compare ourselves to others to measure our own success. We use the perks to convince us to stay. Instead, you can follow a proven process that enables you to love your job without settling for good enough.

    Settling for "good enough"


    Most of us were taught to go to school, get a good job, and let our work speak for itself. But what do you do when you do "all the right things" and aren't happy? Most people over complicate it with padding their resume, working more hours, and waiting for it to work out. There is a better way.

    You did all the "right things"


    Stop Scrolling LinkedIn and Indeed to find your next career move.

    You aren't generic so don't treat your search that way. I have the fail-proof process that will reveal exactly what you want and get you loving your job.

    You are a high performer and someone who has built a lot of success in your career. You don't have to give that up but there is a bigger impact you can make.  You don't have time to wait for things to work out. You don't want to always wonder what else is out there for you. You know that if you just knew exactly what you wanted, things would be so much easier.

    This is for you.

    Career Path Navigator isn't a course or a typical program. It is the shift you need to know what has been missing, what you want, and confidently go after it.

    Being in 100% control and making clear decisions
    Knowing exactly what you want and confidently pursuing it
    Leveraging your unique talents and skills to make a big impact on the causes that mean the most to you

    to this...

    Feeling like you don't have control over your career
    Constantly looking for new jobs just to see what is out there
    Feeling like you're not making an impact or contributing as much as you could

    imagine going from...

    In just a few short weeks

    things are about to change for you

    "Prior to working with Melissa, I felt I didn't even know who I really was anymore. I now have clarity in a path forward for a viable next career and feel more confident."

    - Lorraine S.

    "Before working with Melissa I felt like my life was out of control. Now I feel passionate about what I do. I am happier, stronger, and fully empowered."

    - urszula w.

    "My feelings about my career have completely turned around. I was unhappy, frustrated, ready to walk away. Through this process I have found my way again."

    - Jenna B.

    We are going to change everything you were taught about the sacrifices you have to make to love your job and what is possible for your career. Instead, you know your next career move with confidence and master the strategy and skills to make it happen.

    This program changes everything about how you look at your career and enables you to create the life you always wanted.

    I perfected the steps to get you confidently knowing your next best move and making it happen in record time. My clients get promoted not once, but twice in a year. They go from drinking a bottle of wine a night or endlessly scrolling online to loving their job and spending more time doing things they enjoy. 

    The problem is that most people don't know what they want so they never achieve career fulfillment.

    Most people are more focused on what makes their resume stand out, perfecting their elevator pitch, and working extra hours as the solution to getting a better job.  They  do what they were taught to do. They measure themselves against their peers. That's all wrong.  You have to know what you want. It is the #1 mistake my clients make.

    You don't have to settle for a great job on paper.

    You've worked hard to get where you are and thought you'd be happier but you're not. The first step to knowing what you want is to know the "why" behind your current situation. You will get crystal clear on what is missing for you and what it will take for you to be fulfilled in your career, now and in the future.

    Why you're not happy now

    What You'll Learn

    The biggest answer my clients want is what should their career move be. Should they stay or go? Is there another job that would be a better fit? What level of leadership is best suited for them? You will know exactly what you want from day-to-day activities to the culture that is the best fit for you. You will create a career protocol that will make career decisions simple and easy.

    what your ideal career move is

    Once you know what you want, you'll master the strategy and get personalized support to get you into your dream role. Whether it's in your same company, a new department or organization, or starting your own business, you'll get into your ideal role quickly and efficiently.  And you'll get the best salary and package with me by your side to help you negotiate your new role.

    how to make a career change

    waking up every day excited to go to work and looking forward to your future. Your mondays are as good as your fridays.

    having a big impact and being sought after as the go-to expert while doing what you love.

    having more energy and spending more time with your family.

    making clear and confident decisions. no more overthinking and doubting your career decisions.

    Just imagine...

    You're already investing time and energy trying to figure out why you aren't fulfilled and what your next move should be but you just don't know what to do.

    you are ready to do the self-development work it takes as long as you get the structure and custom support you need.

    you are determined to know your next career move and finally be happy in your career.

    Career Path Navigator is Perfect for you if...

    I'm all in but I have one more question....

    It's normal to feel hesitant when trying something new.  It will work for you. This is unlike anything you've done before.  It has worked for 100% of my clients. I have a 100% money back guarantee because I am confident it will work for you and want you to feel confident to trust the process. If you don't get results, I will happily refund your money.

    what if it doesn't work for me?

    The pace is up to you - you have a full year to use the member portal, community, and get coaching. For maximum results, plan to schedule 1-2 hours a week in the program to get the most out of the calls and materials. In this time you'll get everything you need to know what you want and make a plan to get there. All calls are recorded.

    i'm busy - how much time do I need?

    The typical corporate development plan is 12 months. This program is designed to get you confident in your next move and ACHIEVE it in that time frame. Some clients will go through the program in weeks, some will take longer. Life happens. This program gives you plenty of time to work through the program and make the changes at your own pace.

    Why is the program one year?

    Yes. The coaching calls include all members of the program. You will get 1-1 coaching by me and the other members will be able to hear your coaching so they can benefit and learn from it. Group coaching gives you quicker results and growth you didn't even know you needed. 

    is the coaching in a group?

    Yes. You will get personalized coaching specific to your situation, by Melissa directly. Everything you need, regardless of your level, is in this program.

    will i get personalized coaching?

    Have Questions? I've got answers.

    You master 5 specific steps that will take you from not knowing exactly what you want to actually getting into the work you decide.  You will learn a tool that brings awareness to what is missing now and what to focus on so you always know what needs to be changed. You will explore who you are and what you want through exercises in your program workbook that identify the little and big things you want. Your skills, interests, passions, strengths, and you will create a career protocol that outlines exactly what you want.  You will learn a decision making process that confirms what path to take in your career so you always know how to make decisions with confidence. You will learn an analysis process to take you from A to B and know how to proactively identify what might get in your way and the strategy to overcome. This will help you achieve any goal efficiently, now and in the future. You will learn to influence others, position yourself for any role, know how to identify issues ahead of time, build confidence and measure progress. You will then be able to overcome any obstacle with confidence. You will know how to always stay in action without fear of the unknown guiding you.  You will get coached in the community, by raising your hand on the calls, and by hearing others get coached. Through coaching you will overcome your blind spots, see what is holding you back, take consistent action, improve communication skills, never feel stuck, make more money and get into your dream role faster.

    You will have personalized strategy and support. You will have the process that will change your career experience the rest of your life.

    can you give more specifics on how you help me?

    Coaching helps you discover your blind spots, stop the pattern you've been in that has held you back, and keeps you in consistent action toward your goals. It provides just-in-time learning, strategy, and action, for your particular situation. Coaching with me is grounded in neuroscience and organizational psychology. I help you know yourself deeper and let go of the experiences and beliefs that keep you stuck and unhappy.

    You get coached on every problem, obstacle and strategy to get you to know what you want and make it happen. The calls are open coaching - meaning you get what you need, right when you need it.
