Do you often wonder if you have what it takes to do what you really want to?

Do you sometimes doubt that you’re qualified or strong enough to make a change?

Doubts and questions about how and if we measure up are more common than most of us realize. But when you’re able to shift your perspective and see things from a different angle, you can finally start to identify the possibilities that have always existed…you just didn’t see them there before.

Today, Blake welcomes Nicole to the program to share her experience of finding clarity, success, and more fulfillment than she ever thought was possible. Working in the tech industry left her feeling like a move to the private sector was something she wanted, but she worried whether or not she was capable of making the change. She wondered what she had to offer and if she’d be taken seriously.

That’s when Nicole made the decision to reach out and ask for help.

Through The Bridge to Fulfillment program, Nicole learned more about what she was looking for and uncovered her secret sauce. She was finally able to find her voice and make real changes in her life and career. Today, you’ll hear what made her finally decide to ask for help, how she learned to let go of her limiting beliefs, and how she gained confidence in herself and her abilities, giving her the strength to reach for transformative change.

  3. When we get to a place where we are really unfulfilled in our careers, we get really focused on the tactics and our circumstances. And yes, those things matter.
