How long will you continue to wake up everyday up feeling unsure about your career & where it’s headed?
Even after pouring your heart and soul into your job, you only feel underappreciated and undervalued in return.
Maybe you are experiencing burnout because the job robs you of living the life you want, causing you crippling stress & deflated dreams.
Or perhaps you're frustrated because the current pay rate doesn't match your skills, or you feel constant despair that you might not have what it takes to land the role you really want.
Either way... you know something has to change.
The real reasons for your career stagnation that might be holding you back are:
- Lack of Clarity controls your mindset and keeps you stuck month after month.
- Low confidence, Self-doubt, or Imposter Syndrome with deadly constant silent chatter in your mind that says, "I am not good enough.
- You may not be able to advocate for yourself in the workplace, especially when negotiating for a better role or salary.
- You may be struggling in a leadership role and leading without a clear vision.
- You are ready to move up the ladder but you’re noticing some crucial skills are missing.
- You may feel overwhelmed seeking new opportunities when using the same skills in your role for a long time..
- You're overanalyzing every decision, and so focused on achieving perfection that you're missing out on opportunities and experiences that could help you grow and advance in your career.
- The competition in the job market is making you feel intimidated.
IF YOU'VE NODDED "YES" TO THIS, LET ME TELL YOU...
You can only go as far as you GROW.
It's time to stop waiting and start creating opportunities.
Alicia has guided me throughout the process of changing my career. Alicia has taken my information and transformed it in a way where it is presentable to a new industry as well as shown me how to present it. Every step of the way, Alicia offered very helpful strategies and opened my eyes to the future. I would highly recommend Alicia to anyone trying to write their new chapter in life!
You've learn how to "perform" but never learned how to level up your career & create a roadmap for success.
As a result, you often try to "tough it out" and keep grinding without addressing the underlying challenges…
And instead of seeking professional help, you try to take advice from friends and family or read random self-improvement articles…
Or you may start mindlessly applying to other jobs, which leads to nothing but disappointment…
Or keep going into a cycle of overworking yourself hoping to be noticed...
For such high-achievers, career-ambitious and future leaders who are stuck in their careers, I am...
It's an exclusive career advancement container for high-performers like you to break barriers, get clear on your next move, and elevate your leadership skills to position yourself for success while increasing your salary so you can have the career you’ve been dreaming of.LET'S GET STARTED
Unlike other career coaching programs, it not only focuses on one professional angle but covers the complete horizon of both personal and professional development. Because frankly, without personal growth, you can't be the best version of yourself and succeed anywhere.
Alicia is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to helping you navigate your career so you don't lose yourself in it, but find your voice and value through it. Alicia transformed & positioned me as a mission-accomplished achiever and not just a task-focused doer. I'm so glad I found Alicia. She helped me advance in my career & get a $66K salary increase. She's worth the investment.
The Best You is the only career program you'll ever need.
Most programs don't offer personal guidance or fix the personal strings but they only place their focus on just a resume, LinkedIn profile, and mindless job hunt.
And to top it off, there isn't any reliable accountability channel to ensure your growth and success.
Not only have I identified and eliminated these issues, but my group coaching program is based on the unique and exclusive FRAMEWORK, which I have developed from my decade of experience in HR.
You'll have a clear, well-defined roadmap to success, tailored to your career goals, instead of piecing together random tips and advice to try and make it work for you.
Alicia is the absolute best! She helped me assessed my career goals and helped me understand my future career endeavors. If you’re struggling to figure out where you want to end up career wise, she’s your girl! A career coach genius.
