“What would you do if you weren't afraid?” – Sheryl Sandberg, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead

If you or someone you know is interested in staying up on the latest in career trends and is looking for an opportunity to participate in a community full of forward-thinking career colleagues, we have a part-time role to consider!

In July, we launched the Career Industry Authority – a community of leaders in the industry who support each other in keeping up on the latest in the field through networking, training, and regular mastermind conversations.

This community is growing quickly and we’d love to have just the right support to ensure members have what they need to be successful and move forward toward their goals to advance their practice and/or grow their business.


You can learn more about the position at this link. Please share it with people you know in the industry who might be interested in growing within the field as part of our team.

And, don’t forget that we’d love to hear what you have planned for 2022 and to have you join us for the Best Year Ever planning event with Michael Hyatt.

If you join with my link for the program, you can also join us for a debrief and accountability session on January 8 from 12:00-1:00 PM US ET.

What will you be doing to make 2022 your best year ever?

                        Are you ready to finally have the tools and confidence you need to:

                        • have a repeatable process and structure so you can focus on each client and know every client will get outstanding results?
                        • attract more ideal clients and make more money with a done-for-you, customizable personal branding strategy business?

                        If so, then it’s time to become a Certified Personal Branding Strategist!
