You’re a high-performing passionate leader who wants to make an impact.

But there’s a dissonance between the job you have and the life you want.

After all, it’s not just about your career. You're also asking the big questions about relationships, kids, and life. 

It’s time to take back your life and design a career on your own terms. You just need the clarity and concrete steps to get there.

Caroline, you’re the best! 

I was just saying to my husband today how [my strengths] mostly pointed to training/coaching and that really appealed to me...then I got this email below. 

THANK YOU so much for the advice, and Yay! 

I’ll let you know how it goes!
— Noor M.

This [plan] looks amazing. Thank you again, so much! This is the most hopeful I’ve felt about my career in months if not years.
— Heather M.

Really helpful call today with Caroline Adams. Helped me see *how* to get past my current ‘stuck in mud’ state.
— Karen L.

Thanks for the great coaching call yesterday. I came into the call a ball of stress and went out with actions to get me out of my work overwhelm so I can focus. I think baby steps (one of your great suggestions) are my answer to get moving again. I’ve decided to do one a day and then immediately determine one for the next day. Day 1 done.
— Mel J.

Thank you for the great session today! I have a lot to think about and actionable steps to take, which will be very helpful. 

I very much appreciate your questions and insights. It’s fascinating to me how this process works! I’ve fleshed out more in the past several weeks than I have my entire career!
— Kristi W.

We came up with an idea to help me build my network in a more personal way. First, let me give a shout out and say she is ah-ma-zing, I walked away with better clarity and enthusiasm after I’d been floundering in doubts.
— Sam K.

Many of your words are still playing in my head so really impacted results from our sessions.
— Rosemarie F.

Had my first couple of reach out conversations today after several weeks of putting it off due to my own fears both of failure and success. So excited to have done this and seen for myself exactly what [you’ve] described. People are so willing to help! I am amazed at the doors that are opening so quickly from these conversations...and still a little scared that this could all become real. So cool!
— Liz T.

I am feeling extremely free after my conversation yesterday with Caroline Adams. I learned so much yesterday about what I enjoy and what I don’t enjoy and today I’m feeling like there is limitless possibility even though I haven’t gotten very far in my job search.

I really had no idea before we talked that I was totally fine with my job duties and that it was just a mismatch of workplace. That’s a lot less reinventing of myself than I expected!

Thank you, thank you!
— Erika F.

Caroline, your coaching both kicks my butt and lifts me to a new level. You’re amazing.
— Allison C.

Caroline, you were so great to work with. During our coaching sessions, you listened beyond the words for what I was really saying and what I was usually struggling with. Thanks for the encouragement, the nudges and helping me re-learn trusting my own instincts.
— Jackie Y.

Today I learned that the law school has recently created a podcast studio, which seems eerily in line with what we discussed last time we talked. So far I’m feeling good about this position and just trying to focus on taking it one day at a time. Thanks for your guidance and encouragement in helping me make this much-needed change.
