TurningPoint is a career coaching, career counseling and small business coaching company that helps people find their passions and market themselves or their businesses for maximum visibility and success.
Our network of about 100 New England-area career counselors, career coaches and business coaches help career changers or entrepreneurs 1) identify their best target market(s), 2) hone their marketing materials, resumes, and online presence to attract attention, and 3) put the steps in motion to find long-term, rewarding, profitable and fun work.
Career changers go through a career discovery process, including career assessments, figuring out their strengths and selling points, and also packaging themselves appropriately (i.e. resumes and networking strategies) to achieve their job search goals.
The coaching network is made up of experienced career coaches and career counselors (See: About the Career Coaches), all of whom have training in career counseling or coaching and/or real-life experience in certain industries. We help clients find not just any career coach or business coach, but the RIGHT coach for their situation.
Founder, Career & Business Consultant
In my own life, I’ve been through a fair number of life and career transitions, and I know what it’s like to face the unknown. I think at last count, I’ve held twenty-eight different part-time and full-time jobs starting at the age of eight, when I decided that I really wanted to earn some money (full disclosure: for candy) and took on two neighborhood newspaper routes.
Prior to starting TurningPoint, I worked as a high-profile HR Executive in a variety of industries, including digital marketing, technology, sales, manufacturing, engineering, professional services, and retail (e-commerce). To this day, on top of leading the TurningPoint network, I still keep active in the HR and recruiting world, so that I know what’s emerging and how employers and candidates are acting these days.
I’ve worked with many people in career transition and have helped build several small start-up companies. If asked, my favorite part about my work is the moment when we find the “ah-hah” together – the superpower my client has that we need to let the world know about, STAT, and then building the plan and the materials that opens up so much new opportunity for them.
My passion involves helping people identify and pursue their ideal jobs, start their dream businesses, and/or retire after a long career and pursue new interests. I love to talk about career topics, and I’ve been interviewed for print, radio and television, including The Wall St. Journal, CNN Money, CBS, NPR, Forbes.com, NECN and the Boston Globe.
