As Seen In:

This is not your traditional career search.

Master the skills it takes to create fulfilling, meaningful work that’s aligned with your values, ensures you have an impact and leaves you energized instead of exhausted — whether you want to stay at your current job or try something completely different. The CWYL Program is designed to help you create specific goals to work towards, and a plan to move forward with confidence and ease.

You want clarity, confidence and conviction.

You’re at a crossroads or a major transition, ready for a change but feeling stuck.

You’ve been doing what you “should” do your entire life, and the trade-offs aren’t worth it anymore.

Perhaps you’ve heard that voice inside that keeps whispering; “This isn’t working. You’re meant for more than this…

You want to be thoughtful about planning the upcoming phase of your career (and life) so it can be fulfilling for both you and your family.

You’re not sure how to make it all work and you want support figuring this out.

Or maybe you DO have an idea of what you want, but fear or what you “should” do has kept you from taking action.

That inner voice has an important message.

We know in our gut when we’re on track with our life’s purpose, and when we’re not. You’re here because you’ve had inklings that you’re not doing what you’re meant to be doing.

If you’re reading this, it’s because you’re ready to change all that.

Whether you’re currently an experienced professional looking to find more joy at work, a miserable employee at a job that drains you, in between jobs, on maternity leave, anticipating a transition, a stay-at-home mom ready to go back to work, a part-time employee or business owner, a consultant, a freelancer, a coach.

— whoever you are and whatever you do, there’s one thing that’s certain:

Finding purposeful and fulfilling work that’s aligned with your values and priorities, and that uses your unique gifts, creativity and abilities, can profoundly change the quality of your life.
I know this first hand. I spent nearly ten years following the traditional route of what I should do. I worked on Wall Street and got my MBA from Stanford, achieving “success” but ignoring my own inner voice…until I couldn’t ignore it any longer. Every day the whispers became louder telling me that something BIGGER was missing. I was deeply unfulfilled in my career.

I felt like I had climbed to the top of the ladder only to realize…crap! Wrong ladder.

This led to a lot of soul searching. I studied mindfulness, neuroscience, optimal performance and behavioral psychology.  My overachiever went nuts in the personal development space.

What I discovered Changed my life.

I had what can only be described as a spiritual awakening. I tried all kinds of “woo woo” things and found out that some of them REALLY work when it comes to creating change in our lives. stopped living other people’s dreams and started pursuing my own. I quit my job in finance and became dedicated to sharing these life changing tools and strategies with other women who were struggling with similar battles So here I am. A Stanford MBA Shamaan. I’m a healer and spiritual teacher who blends practical tools and research based techniques with inner reflection and personal growth. I have a foot in both worlds. I fundamentally believe that we each need to go within and look at our own desires, fears, beliefs, and programming in order to create the career and life we deeply desir Which is why I’d love you to join us for Create Work You Love. We’ll help you fast-track your ability to gain clarity and confidence in your next step, achieve life-changing results and save you years of confusion, doubt and wasted time.

It’s NOT about making a list of your passions and interests and where they overlap with other companies. Mining your network and reaching out to people through LinkedIn.

Scheduling so many coffee dates, you feel like a wind up toy that keeps repeating itself.

If your goal is to get paid well for doing something useful and fulfilling…

It’s time to take a different approach.

You’re at a crossroads or a major transition, ready for a change but feeling stuck. You don’t know exactly what you want to do next, and you want to be thoughtful about planning the upcoming phase of your life so it can be fulfilling for both you and your family. Or maybe you DO have an idea of what you’d like to do, but fear or a belief of what you “should” do has kept you from taking action.

You’re stuck.

You’re not sure how to make it all work and you want support figuring this out.

You want clarity, confidence and conviction.

What you’ve been doing hasn’t been working. But you aren’t sure what to do instead.

I’ve been there. And here’s what I discovered:

“If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got.”

I felt like I had climbed to the top of the ladder only to realize…crap! Wrong ladder

“I came to find passion in my work and what I found was so much more than that. I found who I was, why I am the person I am and how that manifests in my personality. It was an amazing experience that everyone should try. I really found I was able to let go of issues I had been holding on to, some that I was aware of and some I was not aware of, I could not have done it on my own.”
Aubrey Kendall

Head of Recruiting, Pinterest - San Francisco, CA

“The best part of the program was Vanessa’s curation of incredible resources and tools for starting the journey to create the work you love. Also, awareness that there are other women grappling with all the same issues.”

Marjorie Cheshire

“I am so grateful for Vanessa’s amazing CWYL program!  Her course provided me with powerful tools, resources, and deep connections with other women.  Vanessa’s optimism, confidence, and authenticity is contagious — her leadership energized me to take risks and to move forward with my own professional dream.  Thank you, Vanessa!”
Liz Drogin

Consultant, Drogin Ventures - Denver, CO

“Before I started working with Vanessa, I was in the middle of a career crisis that was consuming me with anger, bitterness and resentment. The truth was that what I was calling a “career crisis” was really my way of trying to limit and define this whole-life emptiness I felt. Vanessa saw that right away and it became clear that she would be providing so much more than tips on how to get my resume in shape and suggestions to attend networking events. It is not an exaggeration to say working with Vanessa has been life changing. I don’t feel like there is something wrong with me anymore. I don’t feel like I am irreparably damaged. I don’t feel like I need to beat my emotions, my life and my soul into submission anymore. It is an incredible feeling and I will be forever grateful to have had her help me on my path to becoming myself. Big news – I am leaving the bakery for a new freelance gig! I am just overwhelmed with gratitude for my life. It feels amazing. Thank you for having a profound impact on my life.”

About Vanessa Loder

Vanessa Loder is a women’s leadership expert who has been featured in Fast Company, Forbes, Glamour Magazine, The Huffington Post and several other publications. Her Tedx talk “How To Lean In Without Burning Out” has over 153,000 views.

In her previous life, Loder was a successful private equity investor who advised fast growing companies. She is a self described over-achiever whose unfulfilling experience of continual career climbing left her burned out, exhausted and eager to find another way.

Earning her MBA from Stanford and working in finance for almost ten years, Vanessa felt that she had climbed to the top of the ladder only to realize it was the wrong ladder!

After quitting her job in finance to seek meaningful work, Vanessa discovered the traditional career search was not helpful.

She began studying mindfulness, neuroscience, optimal performance and behavioral psychology. Her personal transformation, subsequent research and work have led to thousands of women clarifying their next career move and creating success in an entirely different way.

Vanessa currently lives in Lafayette, CA with her husband and two children.


This program is for women at a transition point. Ready for a change. Feeling stuck. Seeking meaningful work.

Maybe you’ve experienced one of these situations:

  • You’ve been successful at your job, but it’s come at a cost. 
  • You’re in a career that you know in your heart isn’t right for you. 
  • The success you’ve achieved hasn’t felt worth it because of all the stress and strain it’s putting on you. 
  • It’s hard to explore what you really want when your hair’s on fire and you’re running like a maniac. 
  • You want the next phase of your life to be a little less hard driving and a little more satisfying.
  • What you really want is to step back and reflect, and be more deliberate about this next phase. 
  • Maybe you’re planning on quitting your job in the next year, and want to start thinking about what’s next so you’re prepared for the transition.
  • Or maybe you’ve been given some time and space due to life circumstances; a paid sabbatical, less caregiving needs, or some other situation. And you want to use this time wisely.
  • Perhaps you’ve taken time off to raise children or be with family, and now you’re looking for something more – either part or full time. Maybe having children helped you realize you only have one life and if you choose to work, you want it to count. 
  • Perhaps you’ve tried to follow your passion or do something entrepreneurial, but it hasn’t generated enough revenue. 

You could use some clarity and direction.

You’re tired of doing what you “should” do, but aren’t sure what you really want instead.  You feel like you’re wasting precious life moments not following your true path.

You’d like a career where you’re learning and growing with space for creativity.

You’re ready for a job that gives you energy rather than leaving you drained and exhausted.  And you want your life to include time for family, play, hobbies, love, and work. 

But you aren’t sure if this is even possible and you’re scared it won’t work.

We live in a crazy world where people are running a million miles a minute… and only a few of us are pausing to ask:

“What is this all FOR?”

The process I teach in this program is completely different from anything else you’ve seen.

It’s about going inward to find what’s true for you and surrendering to that.

It’s about following your heart and intuition instead of your ego, mind, and wallet.

It’s fine if you don’t know what that means yet – you’ll learn.

While the path of discovering the work you’re meant to be doing is unique for each person, the road map TO get there is the same.

This program combines neuroscience, mindfulness, optimal performance and behavioral psychology in a unique blend that will help you navigate this transition with clarity, confidence and ease.

Join me! Discover work and a life you truly love.

Please Note: This Program is NOT for people who aren’t willing to make the effort to create change.

If you’re frustrated with your current situation, but aren’t ready to take action on changing it, this is not the best program for you. Or, if you’re looking for a more traditional career search and only need to do some formal networking to find a new role, this is also not a great fit.


I participated in Vanessa’s “Create the Work you Love” program and ended it with her retreat and will say that both experiences have been life changing for me! After being in the corporate world for most my career and climbing my way up the corporate ladder, I felt very unhappy and very stuck. I had no idea how to change my career path or start finding work that was more fulfilling. On top of that I have 3 young children that I wanted to be spending more time with. I came out of Vanessa’s program and retreat with so much clarity and courage to take the next step and ended up quitting my job within a week of getting home. I quickly realized that life is not so black and white and we can not only dabble in many things to figure out what we like the most, but also that I can actually build my career around my life, rather than my life around my career! One of the benefits of the program is being in groups of women that are from all different walks of life and careers but all looking to find more meaning in their work and lives. I can not recommend Vanessa’s CWYL Program enough to anybody that is looking to get more out of their career, change directions, or simply get more out of life. Thank you Vanessa!

“I have been a fan of Vanessa’s meditations for over a year before taking the leap and joining one of her Programs. The program has had a profound impact on every facet of my life and the positive changes are still coming! What I love most about the program is the tremendous amount of self growth and the sense of clarity and confidence I gained. If you’re on the fence as I once was, consider this one of the best gifts you can give to yourself- you won’t regret it!”

“I cannot stop talking to all my friends about this class and only wish it had lasted longer. Vanessa brings an amazing combination of research, data and personal experience to teach this material in a way that makes it both simple to understand and a joy to attempt. I always knew I should meditate, but it felt hard and intimidating. Vanessa has a gift for making it fun and easy and also for giving us assignments that felt manageable – not just one more overwhelming thing on the “to-do” list. I would highly recommend this class and would happily take a level two class should they offer one.”
Katherine Harbin

Source Capital, LLC, San Francisco, CA

Create Work You Love equipped me with so many tools and resources, and Vanessa is an amazing resource, guide, and support herself. You can tell she truly cares about her clients and helping them navigate this often frustrating process of discovering and doing what you love. And having an accountability partner was great! I loved mine, as we kept each other on track and could talk through the homework/action steps together. I look forward to working more with Vanessa in the future!

Ana Sanson

Vanessa’s Create Work You Love program opened my mind to new ways of thinking about finding fulfillment in my work. Instead of teaching surface-level resume and networking strategies, Vanessa took us a level deeper into who we are, what we value, and how we want to feel in our work and life. Many concepts — the idea of my essence, my innate genius, my ego vs. my subconscious — were totally new and eye-opening for me. And many of the tools we used, from journaling exercises to guided visualizations to spiritual and nature-based rituals, were unorthodox yet surprisingly effective. This holistic, inward approach had been missing in the way I had navigated previous career decisions — which may be why I started the program feeling lost! Though I now understand that creating work I love is a daily work in progress, I feel empowered to practice this way of life with the tools and awareness I gained in Vanessa’s course.
Eileen Chang

I’ve found and pursued the work I was meant to do and I’m making great money doing it! I follow my intuition and now truly understand what it means to create work you love. I’m not afraid to be myself anymore. That is priceless.
Diana Feinstein

Everything about my life has changed! I have full clarity on my values, strengths and vision for my work and life. This clarity allowed me to manifest and create my dream job. I’m living in my truth and my genius and I am so excited about what I will be able to create operating from this space! CWYL helped me get deeply in touch with my authentic self and to feel renewed confidence about my unique genius. Specifically, activities like the Core Values and Core Feelings exercises, visioning and goal-setting, the goal/soul board, sourcing my beliefs and even Abraham Hicks video, as well as the guided meditations, brought me to a place of centeredness and alignment with my highest self. When I began speaking from this place, everything came together!
Jessica Heaton

I feel more at ease and confident that I am moving in the right direction towards creating the work I love. The content of the program was amazing. Vanessa, thank you for being authentic and so generous in sharing your knowledge and wisdom. I’m so grateful to be a part of this group.

Michelle Diep

I have more confidence in myself and my decisions, I’m able to quiet my inner critic more easily, I feel a greater sense that I am “enough”, I can tap into my inner wisdom more easily, I’m part of a community of women who uplift, encourage and support each other, I feel greater trust that I’m on the “right” path (even if I don’t have all the answers yet!), I have more clarity on my next steps as a result of the CWYL Program, I have more clarity around what I want in my life overall (not just career), I’m more confident that I can realize my full potential, I feel more empowered to make my dreams a reality, I’ve expanded the vision of what’s possible in my life.

Frequently asked questions about cwyl


The current program begins on TBD.


You’re busy, I get it.

That’s why if you’re traveling or working on a project with a crazy deadline, you don’t have to worry about missing out on one of the classes because they will all be recorded. You can access the recording within twenty four hours of the class.

PLUS, you get lifetime access to Create Work You Love Career Program.

That means you can never “fall behind.” You’ll learn at your own convenience and the training materials will be there for you for as long as you need them.

The first LIVE Welcome + Kick Off Call —coming 2023.

After that, the LIVE Group Coaching Calls will take place every Thursday from 11:00am – 12:15pm PST. TBD

You can download this course onto your phone or tablet and get all the class materials, guided meditations, exercises, and action steps while you are on the go.


Yes. This program is designed to support you in figuring out what’s next.

89% of CWYL Graduates said they have more clarity on their next steps as a result of the CWYL Program.

100% of the women from the last CWYL said they have greater clarity on not just their careers, but their lives overall as a result of the CWYL Program. 100%. You can’t fake that.

It’s ok if you have no idea what you want to do, we’ve been there before and will lead you through the exact steps necessary to gain clarity. 

Rest assured. You will leave this program with greater clarity. Period.


Yes. If you already have an idea of what you want to do, great! This program will help you refine your vision, and, more importantly, take action on it despite your fear. Many of the women in this group know what they want to do, but they’ve struggled to make it all work or they seem to be stuck in inertia. That’s why we designed this course as a group program, because there is tremendous support in applying the tools to get unstuck with the support of other people who are in the same process. The group will support you tremendously as you move towards more of what you want.


This program is designed specifically for women who want to create work they love. While a couple of the tools we’ll be using, like the values exercise, are similar to the MBA Program, the majority are not. And the only tools that are repeated are those that I (Vanessa) use on myself on a regular basis. Trust me, with some of this stuff, you can’t do it too many times! You’ll discover something new as you review old material. And, most of the material will be new to you, focused on your career transition.


Probably not as much as you think! Approximately 2-3 hours a week works very well. There is a 60 minute Course Module and a 60 minute Live Group Coaching Call each week, plus your buddy call (which typically lasts close to 60 minutes), and about an hour’s worth of action items to complete each week.


Transformation is 20% insight and 80% action. This program only works if you commit and take action. If you’re expecting The Career Program, or anything else, to magically solve all your problems, please do not sign-up.

Plus, I actually care that you implement this material.

It has changed my life, and I want it to change yours too…for the better.

I know that if you do the work, you will achieve results in your career and life. It’s not always going to be easy, I won’t pretend otherwise, but it will be SO worth it.


Yes. Sorry gents…not for you at this time. Get on the men’s waitlist by emailing


If you want to join the Career Program, I strongly suggest you do it now. There’s always going to be “something” that gets in the way.

Plus, once you join this program, you can repeat it in the future at NO additional cost! So it’s a no-lose situation. If your life circumstances change, you can always repeat the program in the future.


Vanessa’s warmth and supportive positivity helped me navigate a very tough time at work. Participating in the class gave me peace of mind that I was moving toward a better outcome and to be patient with the universe. She also shared some specific tools to help in evaluating life and work that I found extremely useful. The buddy system in the class was a key part of the program and my buddy and I plan to connect monthly even after the class has ended. This class helped me mentally survive one of the toughest 6 months of my career.
Melanie Robinson

CWYL is a commitment to prioritizing and nurturing yourself. Through the tools, frameworks, and activities, I reflected on who I am today and how do I want to drive my journey forward to live the greatest self-fulfillment and authenticity. My buddy was inspirational, motivating, and a role model that will be in my life for a long time.
Mayah Curtis

I enrolled in the CWYL program because I was not feeling fulfilled in my current work situation and wanted to explore other options. Vanessa helped me by providing material and exercises that opened my mind which allowed me to look at things differently. The result was enlightening! One really helpful thing I learned was to look at signs and synchronicities. I found the experience very good and have connected with other women who have found themselves searching for fulfilling work. I would recommend CWYL to anyone who feels stuck in their current work situation and wants to explore ways to become unstuck and move on.

I heard about CWYL when I most needed it, and then every word of the title pinched me and made me curious. Before taking CWYL I offered myself several years of psychological work, several years of meditation practice and a professional skills assessment. CWYL brought me in just a few months as much as all those practices, and I still have material to work on. I think that CWYL can bring you what you need to progress (landmarks, large view, tools, motivation and more), and you can pick what you need in the moment. From my experience, by revisiting the material, I find new potential every time, that can bring me as far as I’m ready to go. Thank you from all my heart! –

I’ve taken about three programs with Vanessa including Create Work You Love, and absolutely loved them. She makes content easy to digest, relatable, actionable and useful (and if you know Vanessa, you’ll also know she makes it fun too!). It was also wonderful to be part of a community and feel connected with and supported by other like-minded women. I frequently go back to my notes from our sessions as they truly help me manage personal and professional situations. I am glad I decided to invest in my own growth through these programs and look forward to joining more in the future.

The CWYL program was exactly what I needed at this time in my life. I am still amazed at how perfect the timing was. I feel stronger, more optimistic, and more confident that I’m on the right path. Thank you Vanessa for the practical tools and approaches, and the magic. I feel strengthened by this class and this group and am excited for the next steps in my journey.

What is it worth to you to gain clarity and take action with confidence?

For me, when I was faced with a similar choice, I decided it was worth a LOT. And I began investing in myself. In my needs, my growth, and my own personal development. It is by far the best investment I’ve ever made.

You are your own most important asset. Whether you choose to do this program or something else, I invite you to invest in your own development.
