Through One-on-One Career Coaching &

Canada's first Career Reinvention Bootcamp


Is this you?

Your current job is losing its appeal to you. You want to find something more fulfilling in or outside of your organization. 

You want more out of your life and career, but still haven't found that purpose, that calling, to channel your energy and creativity.

You want to start something of your own but don't know how to make it happen.

You are driven, curious and want to create a career authentic to you and to make an impact

Imagine... good you will feel when you could finally say that you are in a career/business where you THRIVE, rather than SURVIVE, and ACTUALLY having a clear action plan on how to make it happen.

What if this next calibration, was your best move yet - the one that made you one big step closer to what you really want to achieve in your life?

What if you could do this with a strong sense of certainty, without having to quit your job now, or be broke?

What if you could achieve what is authentic to who you are, with support of strong allies? 

You have the desire to succeed and are willing to work hard. What you really need are a roadmap, a community, proven tools and confidence.

Career reinvention bootcamp

The Career Reinvention Bootcamp is a full-day interactive workshop designed to help professionals and entrepreneurial-minded individuals with 5+ years of experience resolve career doubts, confusion, loss or boredom using a business model canvas approach and design thinking techniques. 


Primarily based on the international bestseller Business Model You, which describes a powerful four-stage method for drawing “personal business models”, this Bootcamp gives participants fresh ways to: 

  • Brainstorm and generate new insights for your career or business.
  • Gain a much clearer understanding of your brand and what career/business options are most aligned with your purpose, strengths and interests.
  • Become much more confident in promoting yourself and creating a network of people that support you.
  • Get motivation and support from a community of like-minded people with diverse backgrounds

the bootcamp will help you answer the following

Should I change my career? 

Should I start my own business? 

What are the other options out there?

How do I find a job more meaningful to me?

How do I regain motivation?






This is the first workshop offered in Vancouver, British Columbia, that’s based on the international bestseller, Business Model You, a one-page method to reinventing your career, which has been published in 17 languages and has helped tens of thousands of mid-career professionals reinvent how they work. Contact us to begin your career coaching today.


Creativity and innovation are important to us. We will use design thinking, a technique commonly used in product and experience design, in this bootcamp to help you “deconstruct” your life and career experience so far and “reconstruct” a career aligned with your purpose, values and interests.


You will benefit from feedback and fresh ideas from fellow professional participants with diverse backgrounds, not to mention guidance from two career coaches who have supported hundreds of others in expanding their career options, crafting practical paths to meaningful careers.


You will come to the bootcamp prepared with pre-bootcamp reflection exercises. Not only that, after the bootcamp, you get to keep your reinvention alive by receiving a free 30-min one-on-one coaching session, participating in alumni Facebook group and having accountability partners.
