Need Help Re-Entering the Workforce?
As a work-at-home mom, I interact with professionals and stay-at-home moms every day. The only difference I see between talent in the office and talent on the playground is a paycheck. But when faced with the need (or desire) to go back to work, many stay-at-home moms lose sight of their worth and confidence in their abilities. It doesn't have to be that way.
Using the process I've developed to help people find fulfilling careers, you too can re-enter the workforce with confidence
Four Things You Need to Get a Job
To get a job in today's economy, you need the following four tools:
- 1Accomplishments-based resume
- 2All-Star LinkedIn status
- 3Networking strategy
- 4Answers to the interview questions you're afraid will be asked
Having helped hundreds of people find meaningful work, I can tell you that there is no magic to the process. You don't need my help. In fact, the tools are listed above, and when you sign up for my newsletter, you'll get access to the resume templates I use with all of my clients.
So why work with me?
As the saying goes, "you can't read the label from inside the bottle." Sometimes you just need someone else to look at your career with a fresh set of eyes.
For reasons I don't yet fully understand, I've been blessed with the ability to do just that. In working with clients, I never tire of the "Aha!" moment we share when the puzzle pieces start to fit, the career trajectory starts to materialize, and hope for a dream job or calling is restored. It's both liberating and empowering.
Work with me and see for yourself.
More About the Tools
Whether you work with me or do this for yourself, the four tools you need to rethink your career and find your calling are as follows:
1. Accomplishments-Based Resume
My resume template teaches you SEO tricks to help your resume get picked from job search engines while also showcasing your skills and abilities.
2. All-Star LinkedIn Profile
Gone are the days of just sending your resume out. Before applying for jobs, you should spend time updating your LinkedIn profile and getting it to All-Star status.
3. Networking Strategy
The best jobs often come through referrals. With your resume and LinkedIn profile ready, you need to reach out to people and track your progress. Treat "getting a job" like a job.
4. Answers to Interview Questions
Write down the questions you're most afraid will be asked and start crafting your answers. Seek advice from a trusted mentor. I promise there is no backstory that can't be managed.
What Former Clients are Saying
Restored my self-confidence
"I had been in my job for over 17 years when I realized I had to make a job change. I was lost; I didn’t know where to start. Shelley got me on track. She played both the role of psychologist and career counselor. I ended up with a great resume that helped me approach future employers with confidence in myself and a newfound belief in my marketability. I ended up with a GREAT, NEW JOB! Thank you Shelley for believing in me, talking me off several ledges, and leading me to this career path."
Valuing my "at home" experience
" Thank you for helping me recognize that even though I put my career on hold for 20 years to spend more time with my children, I still developed skills, and obtained valuable experience that helped me to easily qualify me for a job in my desired field.”
Business Development Rep
Found my dream job!
"You really helped me to clarify the professional messaging on my resume, which helped me to be able to change industries and land my dream job. I consider myself a good writer, but I was blind to how the message on my resume did NOT tell a clear and compelling story. I cannot thank you enough, and would recommend anyone that is considering a career move- to seek you out!"
What Would You Normally Pay?
I recently helped a woman create a resume and brainstorm career opportunities. Her attorney had referred her to a service that wanted $900 to create a resume, $600 to update her LinkedIn profile and a commitment of $600 per month for 3 months to find opportunities and offer interview coaching.
Have you heard the quote, "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime?"
If you allow me to be your coach, I will teach you how to fish.
I could do the work for you, but that will only help you find your next job. Instead, I will empower you to take charge of your career--maybe even find your calling in life. If you learn how to update your resume repeatedly, polish your LinkedIn profile, answer tough questions, and network, you'll be able to repeat the process as needed..
Yes, you might need coaching and someone to hold you accountable, but this is a process you can and should learn for yourself. I would be honored to be your guide.
Is a Faith-Based Approach Right for You?
The tools I use are applicable to any job search for any person. I regularly work with people who do not share my faith. But I do believe that the Lord has a plan for each one of us. If you're headed in the right direction, you'll get the guidance you need from Him. Mix my tips with divine inspiration and you will absolutely get where you need to go.
WARNING: If you don't want to hear career advice mixed with spiritual thoughts and inspiration, I'm probably not the coach for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Does Private Coaching Give Me?
If you sign up for my newsletter, you'll get the resume template I use with all of my clients, along with tips on how to update your resume. If you look through my blog posts, you'll also find tips on how to update your LinkedIn profile, network to find jobs, and answer the interview questions you most fear. You really can do this for yourself.
But some people want a more hands-on approach. Some people want me to coach them through each step, making sure each tool is tailored to their needs. I can do that. Rather than speak in generalities, with private coaching, I'll help you develop the materials you need to make your next faithful career move.
How does each session work?
We will work in one-hour blocks with about a week in between, allowing you time to gather resources and fulfill assignments. We will meet virtually over Zoom with a shared document that we can both edit together. (Remember, I'm teaching you how to do this for yourself so you can repeat the process throughout your career, as needed.)
When does coaching start and end?
When you sign up for coaching, I'll send you an email to schedule our first session together. I'll also ask you to fill out a questionnaire and send me your latest resume in advance. We will work together to update your resume, update your LinkedIn profile, and go through the other tools you need to find meaningful employment. You will be expected to take action items from our sessions, track your progress, and report back at our next meeting.
Though I am happy to offer tips and suggestions as you continue the job search journey, my coaching obligation ends when we have completed the four meetings and you have the four tools promised.
How Long Do I Have Access to Coaching?
If you sign up for private coaching, you'll get four one-hour sessions scheduled at a time that works for both of us. You can do these sessions all together quickly, or space them out, but you must use them all within a year of purchase.
Can You Guarantee I'll Get a Job?
I cannot guarantee you will get a job. I can help you prepare an effective job search. I can help you see yourself from a big picture perspective, and I can empower you to embark on your career transition with confidence. I may even send job postings that might be a fit for you. But I cannot apply for jobs on your behalf, network for you, or go to the interviews. You will have to take the tools we create and put them to use.
As you invest in this process, however, I will be available for follow-up questions.
Is There a Money-Back Guarantee?
Coaching sessions must be completed within a year of the purchase date. Once scheduled according to your availability, you will be expected to attend the calls and participate in the process. If unforeseen circumstances necessitate you dropping out of the program entirely, a refund will be considered on a case-by-case basis, but is not guaranteed.
Why I Am Doing This
For decades, I have helped people update their resumes and up-level their careers. Until I created this website, I did it for free, helping one person at a time as an act of service. Though it takes work on my part, I find the process incredibly rewarding. People come to my house discouraged and downtrodden. Then we talk, I ask questions, and together we find that the puzzle pieces of their past already fit together. Seeing the pattern builds confidence and self-esteem.
I never tire of being part of that metamorphosis, but I needed a way to help more than one person at a time. So while I can't sit down on the couch with each of you, I look forward to helping you develop the tools you need to create a change for yourself. And ultimately that will be a more empowering experience anyway.
