Story

Over the past ten years Carissa Gay had worked in non-profit and educational spheres. She loved teaching, writing, and developing people, yet she knew deep down that her career was drifting. She had never had a long-term career plan. As she sat at her desk, Carissa realized that if she didn’t take radical action, she would be in the same place in another 15 years.

Courageous Moves

Carissa began working with a coach, and in the process, made an amazing discovery. She discovered her brand as a leader and how these strengths were the pathway to a fulfilling career. She went from uncertainty about her career options, to a compelling vision that included entrepreneurship, coaching, and equipping others to live as courageous leaders of their lives and careers.
