Start A Career You Love
6 month coaching package
To ignite a transition from a job you hate to a career you love
"I'm wasting my life."
How many times has this crossed your mind as you rummage for your car keys to drive yourself home after an exhausting day at work, yet again.
--Know that you could be pursuing a totally different career but you're afraid to take to leap
--Don't know if you're capable
--Wish you had more freedom to pursue what you want
--Are afraid that making a transition will cost you too much
--Or it won't work out
--Bored of your current circumstance
--And afraid that continuing as you are, will make you feel more de-motivated, miserable and hopeless
What's worse is that you fear one day, you'll look back on your life and think "I had so much more potential."
I know. I've been there.
Back in 2012, I was miserable, exhausted and directionless in a job I hated.
Every day I went to work to complete the same mundane tasks day in, day out. Not only was I impacted by the feeling that I was capable of so much more but I felt forced to face the "realities" of life and adulthood by those around me.
"This is the real world, Rachael. You're not at University anymore. You'd be very lucky if you actually enjoyed your work."
A sentiment and statement that bugged the hell out of me.
I couldn't help but feel that there was not just more for me out there but more for those who obviously believed that this was just 'the way things are'.
Fast forward to 2018 and I'm self-employed as a Life and Leadership coach helping people break out of the mundanity of what's become 'normal life' so that they can live a life they want to and not one they feel they have to. Looking back, the work feels perfectly aligned with who I am and what I love to do. And with an equal amount of challenge I've faced to make this happen, as well as opportunities for growth and learning, I've really stretched what it means to me to fulfil what I'm capable of as an individual and young woman in this world.
Yet if it hadn't been for the relentless support of the coaches I had behind me, I wouldn't have booked my first flight to New York back in June 2013 to get the training I needed. A turning point, that after 4 months of inactivity, was the start of everything after.
These coaches were not my friends yet, nor my family. They were trained to provide something that people too close to me couldn't.
A coach who has been where you are.
"Start A Career You Love" is a 6 month coaching package designed to kick start a process that will take your life to a whole new level by making that transition from the job you hate to the career you love. The package includes:
24 1:1 private (60 minute) coaching sessions
Weekly results driven action steps
Monday-Friday email support
Just like those coaches supported me to make that turning point back in 2013 possible, so this 6 week program is intended for you.
What will it take for you to live the life you’ve dreamed of?
This 6 week package will be that nudge to get you rolling. And that major turning point for all that amazingness you see as possible for yourself after.
if you could wake up every day no longer dreading that awful job.
Imagine if you could wake up being excited, curious, engaged and growing at every step of your career. Finally, on a path that feels worthy of your potential.
Now imagine if you had someone in your corner. Someone who will simultaneously ‘hold your hand’ through the courageous moments of taking that leap into something new, yet provide an equal amount of challenge for you to be the best you can be in that process.
Discover what you want. Take that leap.
Since everyone is at a different point in their journey, the results of your private coaching sessions will be unique to you. Regardless, since it’s all about YOU, the coaching will be tailored to what you currently need based on where you’re stuck in your process.
Clarity on or deciding what you want
Finally taking the leap
Starting your own business
Landing a new job in the field you love
Greater confidence in yourself
I place a big emphasis on the importance of our coaching relationship. A good working relationship is a pre-requisite to your success. Therefore, I offer a complimentary discovery session designed to see if we're a good fit.
During that session, we'll also get:
Some clarity on the results you want to produce by the end of the package
What obstacles may be in the way
And what you need from our coaching relationship in order to create what we see as possible for you and your career.
If we decide to move forward with our work together, our 1 to 1 coaching sessions will be conducted on a weekly basis over Skype for 6 weeks. At the end of each session, there will be a number of action steps and homework items we will have agreed for you to take on during that week in order to support you in moving closer to your goal.
Our work will be very goal oriented. However, my methodology is to create these changes in your life and career from the inside, out.
And this is what will stand our work apart from the average career counsellor or consultant.
Whilst we can brainstorm options, action plans and things that you may need to do in order to make a transition. We will also be taking a look at what's going on inside of you. Everything starts with you, your thoughts, values and beliefs. Therefore, my methodology places an emphasis on who you are being as a precursor to what we want you to do.
This is where we create some longer lasting changes that will exist beyond a pure career transition and ensures that we are making decisions based on what you really want and with all the natural qualities you have such as courage and curiosity, instead of acting on someone else's idea of what is right or wrong.
The intention is that we are fully harnessing your personal potential and not just following your typical rules and habits.
I completed a full year of training with Accomplishment Coaching in 2014, a company dubbed "The World's Finest" and "The Harvard of coach training schools."
My training is certified by the ICF (International Coach Federation) and the largest global organization providing accreditation to training schools and coaches.
Unfortunately, the world of coaching is still an unregulated profession, meaning there are many coaches out there who practice without any credentials or training. The ICF is a unique organization setting a high standard and advancing the profession.
With 5 years experience of coaching clients of different ages, backgrounds and across 6 different countries across the world through Skype, I have developed an attentiveness to the unique individuality, perspective and culture of each client I work with. And I believe understanding the context from which each of my clients has come is crucial to a successful partnership.
What Clients say...
Thanks to my sessions with Rachael, I stopped living my life from a place of doubt and started to approach every day from possibility. Rachael's guidance allowed me to discover what I could truly do when I stopped standing in my own way. The best part about working with Rachael is that she encouraged me to face tough questions about myself without ever dictating what the answers should be. She patiently waited and guided when necessary while I slowly came to understand what I was really capable of and meant to do. After six months of working with Rachael, I left a job that made me unhappy to start my own business. This comes with great risk and fear but has already shown me great rewards. Three cheers to that!
-Sabrina Medora, Food Writer, Chicago
I have to say a huge thank you to Rachael for helping me find my spark again. After having read her blog, I completely related to a situation she had been in. I was unmotivated by my job and felt completely lost with what my purpose in life was. However, within my very first session, Rachael helped me realize what I truly wanted to achieve in life- something I have never honestly considered before. With the help of the following sessions, I have taken a completely new course of action in life which has changed it for the better. I have never felt more confident and happy. I encourage anyone who is feeling lost and confused to get in touch with Rachael as it may be the first step to an exciting new adventure.
-Darshi Gnanakumar, Social Enterprise, London
You helped me open doors I never knew existed, and helped me realise what I could and should be doing. And, I thank you for that.
- William, Musician, New York
How much will the package cost?
Hold up! Let's get clear on what you'd be spending your money for first. I think your choice should come from whether you believe this is a good match for you or not more than the cost attached to it. That's what the complimentary clarity session is for. Click on the link above to book that.
Yes, but what if I can't afford it?
If money is a real concern for you, I have different payment plans available to suit your needs. Don't forget, money was a huge obstacle for me when starting my coach training and I couldn't have moved forward without support. I'm here to support you and make it all possible.
Ok, what happens in the discovery session?
If you already know what you would like to achieve in "Start A Career You Love", we will spend some time understanding what some potential challenges will be on your venture, what support you will need around them and how we will go about navigating it.
If you don't know what you would like to achieve in "Start A Career You Love" but know that you would like to achieve something, we will create some clarity around deciding what that could be before taking a look at any blocks and challenges you will/are facing.
At the end of the discovery session, there will be some time for you to ask any questions you may have about the package and decide whether you would like to do it.
I love my life and I don't want to make a career transition. Do I need coaching?
Nobody needs coaching but if you want to continually grow as a human being, develop as a leader and explore what else may be possible for you in life, we could be a good fit.
How does coaching work? What is it?
Coaching is a strategic, thought-provoking and creative partnership based in a trusted relationship that inspires one to maximise their personal and professional goals. Instead of setting goals based on how it may have gone for you in the past, we move you towards a 'declared future' created by your most essential, empowered self.
How do I know it's not for me?
You're not willing to try something new.
You're not interested in personal development.
You're not ready to give up limiting beliefs and patterns that keep you stuck.
You'll be using coaching to deal with a mental health issue. (If this is you, I can recommend other service professionals to help meet this need. Once handled, we can take a look at coaching as a way to support you in other areas).
If you book a discovery session and find that you don't like my vibe.
Where is this package available?
I primarily coach over Skype or another suitable video conference service.
What happens when the package has finished?
Six weeks not enough for you?
If you get tremendous value from this package and would like to continue creating your adventure with me, you're welcome to sign up to work with me on a longer term agreement. Since you've been a part of my "Start A Career You Love" package, I'd likely be giving you a discount on a longer term commitment.
Equally if you get tremendous value from this package and that's all you needed to kick start your journey (which is what this package is all about), I'm so happy I had the opportunity to make an impact. If you'd like to send me updates as your adventure unfolds, I'd love to hear from you.
When will it start?
We can talk about an appropriate start date for you during the clarity session.
