Transform your career
so you’re as excited for Monday
as you are for Friday


Being miserable at work and not knowing what to do about it, or being unsure about what you were born to do can be dissatisfying to say the least and at most, devastating to your overall health, wealth, well-being and life satisfaction.

You’re in such a rut you dread Mondays and can’t wait for Fridays. You may even catch yourself saying, “I don’t know what I’m supposed to be doing, but this isn’t it.”

You go back and forth as to whether you should go or stay at your current job. Somehow it’s just too hard to get started on a job search and even if you did, you don’t know what to look for or how to go about it to find something new and better.

You wish you actually enjoyed the 10+ hours a day you slave away, could feel a sense of accomplishment when you come home at night and felt like you were contributing to something that has meaning to you.


Many professionals in today’s workforce are tired of feeling unfulfilled, underappreciated and unrewarded for all that they do.  The result is a feeling of constant burn out and misalignment with the work they’re spending so many hours of their day doing—it isn’t supposed to be like this.

And, it doesn’t have to be like this.  You can be in a job where you enjoy what you’re doing, you feel fulfilled, you have a path forward to grow in your career where you’re experiencing a sense of meaningful accomplishment, and enjoy the people you work with and the environment you’re in every day.

Our solutions are based on the THRIVE formula

With so many tests out there (MBTI, Strengthfinders, DISC, etc.), it may feel like you’re constantly completing quizzes that give you a sense of what you’re naturally good at, with no strong direction on how to take action to build a rewarding career around it.

The THRIVE formula is actually an analysis of who you are, how you function, the type of results you like to generate to determine the best career fit for you. One that will bring you the most fulfillment by using all of who you are—your talents, skills and abilities—in an environment that you can excel in.

Discover with confidence and certainty what you were designed to do and what will make you feel fulfilled in your career. Identify your talents and values, and increase your earning potential. Eliminate the risk of your new job being just like the one you wanted to get out of and know, without a doubt, what to pursue and how to move forward in your more fulfilling career.
