What happens when you go off the beaten path of what you are expected to do?
Kat is originally from Belarus and grew up believing that the “right way” to start a career was to go to school, choose a major, get a diploma and then get a job related to that major.
However, years after graduating from a prestigious college, Kat found herself feeling stuck with no idea how to progress her career. She had always envisioned she’d find her ideal role in the corporate world, but none of the roles she pursued had panned out.
What she didn’t realize was that the job she had been working for over a decade just to get by was actually checking every single box for what she wanted out of her career and life.
So it turned out the work she needed to do wasn’t completely changing careers or finding her ideal corporate role.
Instead, it was about clarifying her vision, challenging her own limiting beliefs, and acknowledging that she was actually right where she was meant to be.

I really was able to get clear on what I what it is that I really wanted. In my future career, I was able to change my mindset and my perception of what I thought was possible, which was a really big one for me, because prior to this, I really, I think I limited my myself and my potential, simply because of where I was at currently. And so I was able to think bigger, and really hone in on, you know, where my skills are, where I want to take them and how I'm going to get there. And it really just empowered me to take change, and it gave me the confidence and conviction, I needed to take those steps. So yeah, it was it was really a great a great one.
I convinced myself for many years, that I was very lucky to have that job, and I would be crazy to leave it. I convinced myself that the team needed me even though I was miserable. And ultimately, it took me getting physically sick to realize I needed to leave! One of the biggest things that I learned out of the signature coaching was on designing my life. And this is another thing that I had really never, it had, I don't know, if it had never occurred to me. I just never believed it was possible until now.
