Do you feel like you were meant to be doing more, but don’t know what it is?
Learn the skills, tools and processes you need to find fulfilling, meaningful work, have an impact, and feel energized instead of exhausted.
This is NOT your traditional career search.
It isn’t about mining LinkedIn or updating your resume. This program is about spending the time you need and deserve to figure out your real path and passion.
Think of it like Structured Soul Searching, with support and guidance along the way.
You’ll get a clear sense of what you want and confidence that you’re headed in the right direction.
HEAR WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
“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.”

“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!”
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.”
