Are you ready to describe your life as extraordinary, delightful, and fulfilling?  

Or, does that sound like an impossibility?

Instead are you tolerating a stalled career, stale marriage, empty nest, or compromised health?

Do you find yourself feeling stuck, lonely, bored, or overwhelmed?

If yes, you are the reason I have created

YOU: Elevated. 

Are you ready to feel energized by your work, passionate about your personal life?

I know you. 

 You are an achiever.

You have played by the rules.

You are well behaved. 

You lead with responsibility, dependability, and maybe, if you are honest, predictability. 

You take care of everyone around you. 

And, you are exhausted.   

And probably a bit bored.

And, are seriously questioning how you want to play out these next twenty or thirty years. 

You are wondering if you chose the path you most wanted for yourself or did others influence your choices? 

And you are having thoughts like: 

 "I'm running out of time" 

"It's too late for me." 

"I'm behind."

or 

"It's now or never."

You are not alone dear you. 

You have well earned wisdom, a strong sense of self, and you are ready to act on both. 

It's time to elevate your expectations.

I know the idea of stepping deliberately into this next phase of your life may make you anxious. You may feel confused. And, you may worry about what others will think. 

That is exactly why I invite you to 

YOU: Elevated where you will be joined by other extraordinary women who are ready to be very intentional about their next weeks, months, and year. 

Maybe you are ready to shift industries.

Or return to work.

Or found a business.

Or find love.

Or choose a path after retirement.

Or go all in on your health.

Or make an impact in your community.

Perfect. You have found your

people and your path. 

You commit to your goal and the process.

 

And I commit to being your coach, teacher, cheerleader, challenger, consultant,

and guide.

And there will be an emphasis on delight

I find that most women who have stalled out have disengaged from fun and whimsy.

Personal pleasure is low on the list. 

This will change in this mastermind. 

We'll launch YOU: Elevated in person for a weekend of connection, rest, and pampering.

 

And through out our time together I will integrate pleasure and delight into our coaching. 

This is your life. 

Let's get in the habit of integrating fun into your every day. 

Dates:   September 2022 - March 2023

Launch:  Friday, September 9th - 11th, 2022 in person in Lynchburg, Virginia. (not required to join the Mastermind) You will be responsible for transportation and lodging and I will take care of everything else. 

Cost:   $2997 paid in full or 6 payments of $557

Coaching: 3 live monthly zoom coaching calls - all recorded for replay

One monthly guest speaker via zoom - also recorded - topics to include women's health, style, organization, delicious nutrition, and more!

Slack channel for questions, written coaching, accountability, and connecting with your fellow masterminders

Pre-recorded modules including topics on success strategies, overwhelm, feeling your emotions, creating an authentic voice and presence, boundaries, pleasure, time management, burnout prevention

The Details

 

As we age, it is natural to evaluate and reflect on the years we have lived. Hopefully your reflection includes a lot of joy, pride, and satisfaction. 

But, if your reflecting leads to spending more time on what you have not accomplished versus what you have, I am guessing you are feeling overwhelmed, behind, disappointed, or even sad.

 

If you had hoped to be more accomplished professionally, more secure financially, or more fulfilled personally you can let those feelings keep you stuck. And this stuck can create feeling overwhelmed, behind, disappointed, and maybe a bit hopeless. These are not feelings that fuel growth, transformation, and exhilaration. (And I want all of these for you.)

 

This is my invitation to you to choose a different approach.

What if you primed yourself to live an extraordinary midlife?

What if you looked at this season of life as a chance for renewal, reinvention, and elevation? 

 

You know how to achieve.

You know how to produce.

Now what if you chose how you want to do both through a new lens?

A lens of fulfillment.

A lens of delight.

A lens of self knowing.

 

You have not hit your ceiling.

You are not at your limit. 

 

If you have dreams you have not yet realized or unmet expectations for your life, I invite you to invest 6 months in exploration, experimentation and implementation with new sisters who are doing the same.

 

To quote Peter Drucker, “smart people need a safe place among peers, to think their confusion out loud.”  The benefit you will get by being around other midlife women in this season of mid-life renewal is why I have created this program. We rise by lifting others. Come join our circle. 

 

YOU: Elevated is a place where you will be surrounded by other women who will encourage your growth, connect to your struggles, offer perspective on next steps, and welcome your questions, stories, and confusion on your way to ELEVATION. 

 

And, I will be there to facilitate, question, lead, entertain, and support you. 
 

Frequently asked questions:

I want to join, but I am very private. I am not sure I want to be coached in front of others. Will I miss out?

Nope, Nada. Non.  You never have to volunteer to be coached and I promise you will still greatly benefit from watching your peers be coached.  When you watch another being coached I will invite you to consider your current struggle and sub it for what we are coaching on. There is always something to learn in these moments. However, I would ask yourself what you are hiding from by not expecting or requesting coaching? Hmmmm.

What is on the agenda for the in person launch September 9th - 11th?

So much goodness friend. I am just crafting the weekend now, but so far I have three special guests confirmed.... 

We will be joined by two dear out of town midlife friends with whom I certified at the Life Coach School, Laurie Shopland from Langley, Canada and Tracy Hoth from Kansas City, Missouri. They will be teaching in their areas of expertise and also helping facilitate our small groups. And my longtime midlife friend, Monica Prahinski, from Lynchburg, Virginia, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, will share her health knowledge and host a cooking class. She is a world class cook and teacher! A few other surprises await. But know that every second will not be filled. There will also be time for dock sitting, deck lounging, hot tub soaking, walks in the woods, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding on our tiny lake, and rest, always rest. 

I may not be available to attend each of the live coaching calls. Will I miss out?

No ma’am. All lessons and calls will be recorded. In the 3 years I have been in groups I have probably watched 10% of the coaching in real time. That means I have spent 100s of hours watching replays. Always just as good.

 

I had been toying with hiring you for one on one coaching. Is that no longer available?

No worries mon amie. I will continue to offer one on one, in 3 and 6 month blocks. This is not a substitute for one on one, rather an enhancement or a chance to dip one’s toe in to the world of self development Kristin style.

What is the format for the coaching calls?

All coaching will take place on the Zoom platform. We will meet as a group, Brady Bunch style! I will coach live and answer questions from the chat box. 

 

Why do you call yourself The Career Coach for Women at Midlife?

I have been coaching for more than three years and a counselor for over twenty. And throughout my working life the theme of career is always present - from running employee career development groups at a University, to working in graduate school admissions,  to running a Career Development Office at a college to designing the first ever career development program for their alumni.  I love all that is involved in career planning, pivoting, and reinvention. And, I know first hand the impact feeling fulfilled at work can have all other parts of your life. So,  wherever you are feeling stuck, deflated, exhausted, seeking guidance I know how to help you. Promise. I have a particular expertise in high achieving women - imposter syndrome, burnout, hyper functioning, perfectionism, inner mean girl talk, worry, over preparation, people pleasing - are a few of the topics I have spent a great deal of time researching. But to balance that I have also learned a lot about self compassion, playing to your strengths, mapping out a career, boundary creation, time management, work/life harmony, career pivots, and building strong relationships. 

I'm ready to commit, but not sure I can join you in Lynchburg September 9th - 11th. May I still apply?

Absolutely, however, I would recommend doing what you can to be with us. There is no substitute for meeting your fellow Masterminders in person.  Plus, you'll miss out on lots of nibbling, sipping, laughing, resting, and joy. 

 

I’m intrigued by this mastermind, but my life is actually pretty darn great. Is this only a group for those who have a big change they wish to make?

No friend. So, if you have a great life (and not just on instagram) and personal growth has always been appealing to you, this is for you! If the idea of elevating your life sounds sort of sexy. Not change it. Not scrap it. Not overhaul it. Elevate it…. These are just the tools to get you there. Think of all the additional delight you can create.

 

Will I be buried in hours and hours of homework, videos to watch, and activities to complete?

Nope. My philosophy is less is more, but my “less” will be high quality. This won’t be like a Chinese lunch buffet. This will be more like the restaurant you go to for your birthday dinner. Refined, tasteful, and elegant.

 

What is the process for this program?

In order to elevate I will walk you through how to assess where you are now, where you want to go (it’s okay if you have no clue …) and how to get there.

I will share all I know from my 20 years as a counselor and 3 years as a coach. I will save you from reading all the books, listening to all the TED talks, and taking all the mini courses. I've done all of it!  And, the best part ... you will be in a community of like minded supportive women. I don't know about you, but I crave that connection more than anything else post pandemic.   I have felt first hand the power of being in a group of women, cheering each other on, watching others being coached. It is nothing short of extraordinary. 

When you fully commit for 6 months, do the exercises I offer, are present for or enjoy the replays of our weekly calls, and expect great things from yourself you will experience true elevation.  This is my promise to you. 

What if I have more questions?

I'm ready to answer them! Click here to send me an email and I'd be happy to answer them! 

 

Today is your before.

Let's create your extraordinary after.
