Graduating college and have no idea how to use that degree IRL?
Submitting a ton of resumes but not landing any interviews?
Feeling trapped in a job that pays the bills but doesn’t feel like a “real” job?
Just like you, I dreamed about taking the world by storm since I was a kid. And just like you, I found myself with a college degree and no freaking clue how to take all of my ambitions and unleash them on the real world.
It took tenacity and many years of learning lessons the hard way, but now here I am. I’m one of the key executives running a large-scale advertising company in one of the big-three global holding companies. I’ve taken great pride in helping hundreds of other people build their careers and leadership prowess.
But I started at the bottom. In fact, I was lower than the bottom. I was in the mud, the pit, the go-nowhere do-nothing intersection of joblessness and cluelessness—and I was stuck there.
Unlike me, you don’t need to figure it out on your own! I’m here to help, with practical advice and tools to help you:
- Stay true to your aspirations of a brilliant career, and turn big dreams into big action
- Understand how typical corporate America works so you can use this information to your advantage and land the job
- Stand out as a star performer once you get the job
You CAN get unstuck and turn your big dreams into a satisfying career!
