You’re in a career rut, so you start looking for a new job to shake things up. But, once the honeymoon phase has ended in your new role, it still kinda feels like you’re in the same rut you were trying to escape in the first place. Sound familiar?

In today’s episode, Blake shares a recent success story that illustrates the importance of clarity and confidence before making big career changes. As women, we all want to strive for better balance, more time with family, and we’d love to carve out time for hobbies and personal growth. If you want to achieve these goals, it’s about more than just a ‘change of scenery.’ It’s about changing your perspective and recognizing what you’re truly capable of.

Today, you’ll hear Naomi’s story of overcoming her fears, investing in herself, and ultimately landing her dream job and a pay increase (within just 12 weeks of starting the program!) while also maintaining a more balanced life. When we know our own worth, the possibilities are endless!

Favorite Quotes: 1. “Often, we don't understand the cost of that journey of going on our own.

And once you get that going, it's like you can do anything.” -Naomi 3. “If you find this program, you're at the point where you want to help yourself. And if you're at that point, once you hit go, it's a responsibility on you to really dedicate yourself. Because what you put in, you're going to get out.” -Naomi 4. “When I heard other women talk about what they were going through, it made a world of difference to me.

If your work is unhappy, it bleeds into every part of your life.” -Blake
