Or do you feel stuck? Be honest for a second... How many of these describe you?
You don’t have the right education to get the job you want.
You don't have enough experience to apply for your dream job.
You want a different job… but you’re unclear how to make it happen.
Your resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile don’t show how you’re a great fit for the job you want.
You’re afraid that changing your career or job will end up being a mistake.
You don’t want to disappoint those who supported you while pursuing your education by changing course and starting something new.
You feel like a failure because you’re behind in your career.
You’re not sure what you want to do because you already did everything that you were supposed to and yet you’re still not happy.
You’re worried that you’re doing something wrong because your friends already have their careers figured out.
If two or three these statements sound like you, it's time for a change.
Even if you think that you have the wrong education. Even if you're afraid of making the wrong decision. Even if your career isn’t what you want, or what you thought it would be, I have some good news for you.
I’m about to tell you exactly what you can do to find a job where you wake up excited to go to work and come home feeling fulfilled.
If you feel stuck in your career, you’re not alone.
We’ve been trained to look at work based on an outdated approach.
Work used to be about finding a decent 9-5 job, getting some good benefits, and then retiring to live happily ever after.
But let’s be real here - that career blueprint just doesn’t work anymore.
As the job market, career options, and technology have changed, so have our job options and so have our priorities.
So what exactly do we want from our work?
Well… it’s different for everyone. But, we can sum it up with two words:
And it occurs at the intersection of who you are and what you do.
You’ll find your own unique intersection as you work through The Meaningful Work Blueprint.
First, you’ll discover what kind of work you’re suited for—where your natural skills, talents, and interests will shine so you’ll feel excited about your work.
Then, you’ll learn how you are probably a better fit for that work than you realize. No going back to school for another degree. No need to start at the bottom and work your way up.
And finally, you’ll end up with the words, phrases, and stories that your resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile are missing—those critical pieces that show recruiters and hiring managers that you are the candidate they’ve been searching for.

If you’re wondering if The Meaningful Work Blueprint will be worth it, or if it’s right for you, think about this:
What if there was a way to demonstrate how your life experiences (including hobbies, volunteer work, and side projects) make you qualified for the job you want… even if you don’t have the right education in a traditional sense.
What if there was a way to discover exactly what kind of work will satisfy you, even if you don’t know what that looks like right now?
What if you knew the exact words to use in your resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile so you could stand out to recruiters and hiring managers?
What if you weren’t afraid that changing your career or job will end up being a mistake?
What if you weren’t worried about disappointing those who supported you while pursuing your education by changing course and starting something new?
What if you didn’t feel like a failure because you’re behind in your career?
What if you stopped doing everything that you’re “supposed” to do?
What if you haven’t been doing anything wrong this whole time, even though your friends already have their careers all figured out while you’re still exploring?
What if the thing you were afraid of wasn’t a limitation… but was actually the thing that could help you succeed?
What would you do then?
A few years ago I was 28 and wondering what I’d done wrong.
I mean… I did follow the advice I’d been given about how to live a good life—including following every step that was supposed to lead me to a great job that would be the foundation of my successful life.
You know the advice I’m talking about. It might even sound familiar…
… Go to college and get a degree... (I got two: Psychology and English)
… Get a good job with great benefits… (Event Planning at a Fortune 500 company)
… Go back to school and get a Master’s Degree… (I was halfway through a Masters in Industrial and Organizational Psychology)
And yet I woke up dreading the day because my job was so boring.
I’d been there for almost five years and wasn’t getting the opportunities I deserved.
I was told over and over to keep my head down and follow the standard operating procedure.
I knew I was capable of so much more than my job required but I wasn’t allowed to express it.
What I didn’t know at the time is that the way we work has changed. It’s no longer enough to get (and keep) a good job with benefits.
But if you’re anything like I was, you’re clueless about how to transition when you have the wrong education, lack the perfect resume, and aren’t sure how to change your career.
That’s why I created The Meaningful Work Blueprint. It contains the three-step process that I used to transition from event planning to marketing without going back to school or starting over in my career.
I’ve put a lot of work into decoding what makes work fun, exciting, and meaningful. I want to help you transition to the career you never realized you could have. Just like I did for myself. And just like I have done for dozens of clients.
And the best part? I have condensed everything I've learned from nearly 20 years of work experience into only five lessons of actionable exercises for you.
While I took the long road to discovering my own meaningful work, I’ve created The Meaningful Work Blueprint so that you can take the simplest, fastest path to discover what’s meaningful to you.
If you’re honestly ready to take the first step toward the change you’re craving, you can now. I've got your back.
Want to know more? Well…
I’m a Career Development Strategist with a Master’s Degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology and Bachelor’s Degrees in Psychology and English.
My past professional background includes experience in editing, marketing and coaching. I’ve been reviewing resumes, cover letters and LinkedIn profiles professionally for almost 10 years.
I have experience in all aspects of the hiring process: as a manager, as a consultant on high profile hires, and as an applicant. Which means, I understand what employers are looking for when selecting people to interview. And it means that I know exactly how to help you land an interview for the job you’ve been dreaming of.
“I listened to the entire blueprint in one sitting without taking any breaks. My biggest takeaway was the difference between strengths and skills. I’m thinking a lot more about that in my current job now. I’m noticing how I use my skills and strengths, and whether or not the things I do are based more on one or the other. That was one of the most clarifying points for me in the course overall.” (S.W.)
“Emily helped me gain the confidence I needed to transition careers. I no longer feel bad when others don’t quite understand my work. I know it’s right for me.” (D.H.)
“Emily is so incredible at finding the good stuff, being honest about how to shift the focus to highlight the good stuff, and somehow making me feel better about myself and my career prospects. I’m no longer paralyzed by anxiety and the feeling of inadequacy.” (N.G.)
“Emily provided a different perspective and responded directly to my questions and concerns. I now have a better understanding of how to market myself as a valuable employee, figured out how to present my strengths and accomplishments, and rebuilt my resume that allowed me to land the job I wanted.” (D.S.)
“It wasn’t a ‘you should work harder’ thing. Rather, it was focused on how to get to where I want to go in terms of my life goals and desires.” (C.S.)
“Working with Emily was enormously beneficial for me. She has helped me to identify my priorities and my strengths in a life-changing way. Emily is a patient listener who naturally offers valuable insight. I appreciated my time working with her and definitely recommend working with her.” (K.N.)
“If I was just on my own to figure out who I am and what I want, I would have no idea what to do. Emily gave me the right activities at the right time so I could figure out what I wanted to do next.” (E.B.)
While this all sounds exciting… you might have a few more questions about the program.
Is it going to take a long time to see results?
When you’re stuck at work, you just want answers fast because you’re tired of feeling miserable. Coaching can be a powerful but slow process.
Which is why The Meaningful Work Blueprint is designed for self-paced learning. You can begin seeing results right away… it just depends on you.
What kind of support is there in the program?
Completing an online program can feel lonely. That’s why the Meaningful Work Blueprint also includes personalized email support directly from me AND exclusive access to a PRIVATE Facebook community so that your posts and comments don't show up in your co-workers' news feed.
It’s where we share advice, successes, and the occasional horror story. Our MWB private Facebook Community is a place where you’ll have access to weekly accountability, regular interaction with me, and monthly Q&A calls to get you the help and support you need to figure out your next career move.
I don’t know what I want to do… I just know that this job isn’t it. Can you help me?
Many people stay stuck because they don’t know how to look for the solutions… and if you did know where to look, you wouldn’t be stuck. So yes -- The Meaningful Work Blueprint CAN help you discover what you really want to do, even if right now, you only know what you don’t want.
I love my career field and can’t imagine working in any other field… I just hate my job. Do I have to change careers to find meaningful work?
You can work in your current industry and find meaningful work. You just haven’t found the right job for your unique skills and values. In The Meaningful Work Blueprint, you’ll learn to identify the career path that will maximize your sense of fulfillment--while staying in your current industry if that’s what you want.
Do I have enough time to change my career? I’m already spread too busy.
The Meaningful Work Blueprint allows you to learn at your own pace. Some students binge and complete the material within a few days but you can also take your time and complete one lesson a week. One busy student broke down each module into 3 weeks worth of micro steps to make it fit her busy life. But she completed the work, slowly but surely! And now she’s on her own path to finding meaningful work instead of feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and depleted.
What if I find that the blueprint doesn’t work for me?
I believe in this program so much that I offer all students a 90-day money back guarantee. Just show me that you did the work for the five lessons and you’ll receive a full refund, no questions asked.
Look, having a job you don’t love… or even hate… isn’t the end of the world.
Plenty of people find a way to make the best of bad or even just uncomfortable situations.
You’ve probably told someone close to you that you want more out of your job and from your life. Maybe they replied with something like…
… You should be happy with what you’ve got… you’re lucky to even have a job.
… Where do you want to be in 20 years from now? If you don’t know where you’re going, you can’t get there.
… You’ve got to stick with something or people will think you’re an unreliable job jumper and no one will want to hire you.
You know what I wish I could say to anyone who doles out this kind of advice?
“You don’t get it.”
Because they don’t.
Jobs have changed. Career paths have changed. Education and experience requirements? They’ve changed.
Untraditional jobs, career paths, and job requirements are the new norm. We live in a time of change, flexibility, and adaptation.
And if you’re looking for work that excites you—if you understand that you deserve a job that’s so satisfying that you wake up happy to go to work—then YOU GET IT.
It’s not a mistake, it’s not impossible, and it’s not out of your reach to find a job that combines your passions, skills, interests, and experiences.
It’s a mistake NOT to try and get that job.
And I’m here to help you do it.
Sign up for the Meaningful Work Blueprint right now and shut down anyone (including yourself) that’s telling you it can’t be done.
