Becoming Better Where You Are


Preparing For Where You Want to Go

Welcome to
Mindful Career Building


…a year-long comprehensive program that helps women at the middle management level mindfully determine what they want to achieve, develop the skills needed to get there, and the mindset to achieve it.


If you’re a woman who wants to take your corporate career to the next level with clarity, confidence and a sisterhood of support, you’ve come to the right place.

Your Roadmap
to Success


Until now, there hasn’t been a manual for success in the corporate world – which has left many women on the middle rungs of the career ladder feeling stuck, lacking confidence and/or unsure of how to reach the next level.


Mindful Career Building fills this gap between your formal education and your company’s training to equip you with everything you need to know, do and have to climb the corporate ladder with confidence.

Over the course of 12 months, participants will progress thorough three stages of the program, each of which builds upon the last to develop the skills and mindset necessary to achieve the success you’ve dreamed of.


Taught by the world’s top thought leaders, this program will fill and further strengthen your corporate toolbox with an abundance of resources and practical, applicable skills. Our first session begins in September 2019 – and we’d love to have you join us.

Alexis Haselberger is a guru in time management and productivity! She is my "go-to" coachfor all things related to getting more organized and efficient. She miraculously helped me reorganize my email and to-do system. Her attitude and approach make her a delight to work with! And most importantly, you'll see and feel a huge difference."

— Lauren R.

I've had the opportunity to have a couple of sessions with Kathy in two different moments of my career. Kathy has always been very effective and right to the point. I was very pleased to notice that she was very well prepared for our sessions, understood perfectly where I was coming from and helped me identify my strengths and be able to highlight them in my personal brand. She was thoughtful and generous in the use of our time and gave me important hints on the strategies I could develop in my career planning and tools I could use. It was a pleasure to work with her and an extremely valuable use of my time."

Bonnie's Breath Workshop was an unexpected surprise. I went to class with the intention of bringing in more calm and presence into my life. What I experienced was a letting go of current emotional pain I didn't know I was holding so much of. This lended itself to my feeling more present, I just didn't know what was getting in the way. As a facilitator, Bonnie is knowledgeable and has a soothing energy that can be felt throughout the class. She is a gifted teacher and clearly loves what she does! I look forward to doing more work with her."

S. Renee ‘sees the invisible in people’. When I met S. Renee, I felt an instant connection. I was working as a program assistant for a military child development center. Within 4 months of meeting S. Renee, I landed two interviews and received both offers! I chose a position as an assistant director for a child development center and after 15 months, I was promoted to center director. My income has increased by 113% and I received the 2017 Civilian Employee of the Year Award."
