[If you really want to make a major life change,
I invite you print this out, find a quiet space,
then follow your heart to a whole new life]
Changing Course Begins With a Great Idea!
You Really Can Get Paid to Work at What You Love
And Enjoy a Life of Joy, Freedom, and Flexibility…
You Just Need Is Someone to Show You the Way
You want to do work that pays the bills… but that also feeds your soul.
Or perhaps you’re just tired of the commute or the crazy office politics and you want more control over your time… and life.
So where does someone like you turn for career advice when you don’t want a new j-o-b or even a new “career”?
Where do you go for guidance when what you really want a whole new LIFE?
After all, traditional career coaches are all about helping you find the perfect j-o-b.
But what if you told them that you love dogs and you love to cook.. and oh, yeah, you also love to travel?
Chances are they’d tell you to become a veterinarian, or a travel agent, or a chef.
That’s because 99 percent of career coaches don’t have a clue how to help people like you who want to change course from having a boss to being your OWN boss.
Don’t get me wrong… traditional career professionals are good at what they do.
It’s just that they don’t know what to do with someone like you who wants to work when, where, and how you want.
And most traditional career counselors definitely wouldn’t know how to help someone who wants to combine these kinds of seemingly unrelated interests.
I Can Show You Practical Ways You Can Turn Even Multiple Gifts and Interests into Income
Not only do I know how to help you see ways you can make money doing what you love, but if you really DID have a love of dogs/cooking/travel — I could show you how you could combine all three!
Sadly, because the traditional career coaching world is so employment-oriented, the very idea that you can do your own thing and pursue multiple interests simultaneously is seen as “unrealistic.”
That’s why I love this quote from Will Smith who said, “Being realistic is the most commonly traveled road to mediocrity.”
In case you don’t know me I’m Dr. Valerie Young.
And I’m not a “career coach” – at least not the kind most folks are used to.
I am a seasoned career expert — but I only work with people who want to make a living without a job-job.
So if you’re looking for help with resumes, job search tips, or interview skills — I’m definitely not for you.
However, if you want is to find a way to make a living on your own terms… read on.
Since 1995 I’ve helped hundreds of people just like you to discover often unique ways to turn what they love to do into a viable stream of income.
I’ve worked with executives, administrative assistants, engineers, stay-at-home moms, artists…
I’ve helped people in their 20s and 30s, mid-lifers, baby boomers looking for their second wave career, and people well into their 70s.
And I’ve worked with clients from every continent except Antarctica.
I’ve discovered that in the end, there are only two things you need to change course:
- A great idea and
- The confidence to act on it
Fortunately, in addition to being an expert on “outside of the job box” careers I’m also a confidence expert.
My career related tips have appeared in publications as far away as India and Australia…
I also got a six-figure book deal with Random House.
My book on confidence has been published in five languages.
And I’ve had the honor of speaking to tens of thousands of people — men and women alike — at such diverse organizations as Apple, Boeing, Intel, Chrysler, Society of Women Engineers, Romance Writers of America, Harvard, Stanford… just to name a few.
I’m not telling you this to impress you. I’m telling you this because I started where you are and I changed course.
I now work when, where, and how I want.
And so can you.
After all, the fact that you’ve read this far means you’re still searching for answers. That’s a good thing, because…
Once You Have a Clear Direction…
You’re Able to Make An Enormous
Positive Shift In Your Life
I’m talking about a real shift.
Not just a job change or even a career change, but a whole new life.
One that offers flexibility, a greater degree of work-life balance, and the chance to do work that brings you joy. But none of this is possible is you are confused. Because from clarity comes choice.
Take the Quiz.
YES/NO I know I want to do work I love, but I’m not even sure what that is anymore
YES/NO I know what I love to do, but I have no clue how to make money doing it
YES/NO I know what I love to do, but worry I can’t make enough money at it
YES/NO I have a great idea, but I don’t know where to begin
Now that you know where you are, you can figure out how to get where you want to be.
All you need is someone to show you the way.
I don’t mean to brag here, but I positively excel at helping my clients find realistic ways they can turn their interests into actionable income.
In part it’s because I am a natural idea generator.
I would never describe myself as psychic. But I am highly intuitive.
Often I can literally “see” a client doing a particular kind of work. When I’ve shared these mental pictures with clients, 99 percent tell me they love the idea!
At the same time my approach is highly systematic.
I’m the creator of the first and only idea generation system specifically designed to rapidly detect ways that anyone, anywhere can make money without a j-o-b.
The 7-step system has worked with change seekers from all walks of life.
This is Your Chance to Benefit From
A Proven Process To Help You
Discover What You Love to Do and
How to Make Good Money Doing It
My idea generation system is so effective that since 2006 over 300 people from 19 countries – most with no prior coaching experience – have become licensed to use my system so they too can get paid to brainstorm. (For advance notice of upcoming classes, click here.)
The process begins with the Life First-Work Second Approach© to career planning. In fact, if you decide to work with me, be prepared to answer this key question:
“What do you want your life to look like?”
- Do you want to work in a cozy home office, outdoors, on a live aboard boat, in a tool-filled workshop or a sunny studio?
- What time do you want to wake up? (I used to ask my clients what time they wanted to get up in the morning until one asked me, “Does it have to be the morning?” Ha!)
- Would you prefer the predictability of being at the same place each day or do you crave a more flexible schedule?
- Do you want to work alone, in a partnership, or as part of (or head of!) a small team?
The reason traditional career advisors don’t ask about the life part of the life part equation is simple…
They assume you’ll be working Monday through Friday from 9-5 or 8-to-late.
I never assume that.
After all, what if you want to work a four day week? Or take two weeks to go a lake to write as I’ve done?
Or maybe you want to work intensely for nine months and then to take summer or winters off?
Or enjoy the portability of working from different locations at different times of the year?
You can you know.
Once you understand what you want your life to look like you’re in a better position to choose only those self-employment options that pass the “Life Test.”
Before I explain how the process works you should know that I am NOT a Life Coach.
Life coaches are trained to guide the client to find their own answers – no matter how long it takes.
As such most are trained to spend 80% of his or her time listening to the client without offering advice.
Naturally, I listen too.
What I’m listening for are your answers to the dozens of questions I’ll be asking you as I dig under the surface to uncover any hidden gifts and talents you may have forgotten.
Your answers are the raw material I use to connect the dots between the things you love to do and ways you can make money doing them.
However, I’ll also be offering lots of ideas and concrete advice on the “how” part of profiting from your passion.
After all, if you already knew what to do, you’d already be doing it!
The other big difference is, the vast majority of coaches (life, career, executive, or otherwise) want you to commit to hiring them for a minimum of three months to six.
My clients hire me because they want answers… fast!
In fact, when you work with me, I guarantee you’ll get what you need in a single highly-productive Laser Idea Discover and Action Planning session.
That’s because I have a laser-like focus on one goal: To help you zero in on the things you love to do and then discover viable ways you can
live and work on your own terms
The process is so effective that 99% of my clients tell me they got exactly what they needed in just one session.
Don’t take my word for it. Scroll through a few of client testimonials on the right…
Expert Career Guidance
Plus The Tools You Need to
Create The Life You Really Want
Your journey to a new career and life begins immediately.
That’s because within moments of booking your laser session you will receive a copy of It’s Never Too Late To Find Your Calling.
It’s chock full immediately useful information and exercises to help you tune into what you love to do. Too add even more value, I went out and pooled together some of the best and the brightest career change experts around to create It’s Never Too Late To Find Your Calling.
Experts like Barbara Sher best-selling author of “I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was,” “Wishcraft,” and “It’s Only Too Late If You Don’t Start Now,” Barbara Winter author of “Making a Living Without a Job,” and others have generously allowed me to share with you excerpts, exercises, and techniques from their thought-provoking books.
Through their collective wisdom, experience, and know-how you’ll gain a powerful step-by-step approach to uncovering your gifts, your passion, your real calling.
I have parted with perfectly good coin to read the wisdom of many different authors concerning what I should do with my life and career. They all offer platitudes, exercises, and encouragement to the seeker. Some have complex diagrams, case studies, whatever. Chicken Soup for the aimless. Let me assure you, this book is different. It is clearly written, extremely useful, and the surprise is that it is inspirational! Not only will you (probably) get some great ideas to help you break out of that rut, but you’ll enjoy the process, and almost certainly be in a better mood just from reading the book! I didn’t get that from any of the ‘what color is my jumpsuit’ books, which gather dust on my shelf. Believe it or not, I carry this book around in my briefcase! I show it to friends, suggest they buy it, loan it to them if they won’t buy it. You should buy it–try it, and you’ll probably love it. If you read it and don’t think it’s a life-changer, give it to a close friend and they will thank you for it.
Naturally you’ll hear from me too. I’ll share my “10 Ways to Hear Your Calling.” With so many strategies to draw from you’ll quickly see just how easy it can be to tap into even long-forgotten passions.
And if you worry that the thing you most love to do won’t earn enough, think again!
Once you discover the utterly liberating concept of multiple streams of income you’ll realize that more is possible than you ever imagined.
Plus I’ll show you how one income-generating idea leads to another!
Simply stated, It’s Never Too Late to Find Your Calling will help you tap into the work you were born to do. This 83-page downloadable book sells for $19.95.
But when you schedule your private Work at What You Love session, this invaluable resource is yours — FREE!
Doing the exercises is your chance to step back and reflect on your many interests and gifts. That way you come to your session prepared to take full advantage of our time together.
Of course I’ll be thoroughly reviewing your answers ahead of our session. That means you and your personal situation will automatically be “on my radar” prior to our session.
So when I’m out walking my dog or surfing the web for resources or talking to someone I think might be a great connection, I’m already working on your behalf.
Dreams Don’t Come True. Plans Do.
Ideas are great – but they’re just that. The fact is, dreams don’t come true… plans do.
To really turn an idea into your livelihood you need someone who can give you both the “what” and the “how.”
I spent seven years in marketing in a Fortune 200 company. After that I personally built a multiple six-figure business working for myself from the comfort of my own home.
You’ll not only get practical ideas, but I’ll also tell you how to implement them.
I can help you come up with simple, low-cost ways to launch your idea. Over the years I’ve helped clients see
- How to forge highly profitable partnerships with major non-profits and corporations – even if you’re a small, one-person business
- How to leverage the power of the media to get free press coverage
- How to design a business that has a predictable, recurring stream of income automatically deposited into your bank account
- And much more…
After all the goal is to start earning income more quickly than you would on your own!
And don’t worry if the idea you fall most in love with is one where you have zero experience.
I can show you ways to quickly create a track record and build credibility so you feel confident moving ahead.
With Hundreds of Resources at My Finger Tips
You Should Come Prepared To Take Lots Of Notes!
From the moment I receive your assignment I’m working on your behalf to help you pinpoint and then profit from your passion.
After over two decades of studying creative alternatives to having a j-o-b, my brain is absolutely chock full of information. Anything from…
- How to bring your product idea to market
- How to earn money from your art or photography

And if I don’t know of a specific resource off the top of my head – trust me, I’ll know where to find it! And believe me I know that trust is important.
My Iron-Clad Guarantee
I’m SO confident I can help you find a way to get paid to do what you love that I’m willing to offer something unheard of in the coaching industry – and that’s Iron Clad Guaranteed.
By the end of our session I guarantee you’ll walk away with at least one practical idea for how you can turn your interests into income so you can live your dream of making a living without a job.
Most likely you’ll leave with multiple ideas from which to choose. If that happens (and I fully expect that it will) I’ll help you hone in on which one to focus on first so you don’t get overwhelmed or distracted.
If by the end of our session you fail to receive at least one practical, viable idea that you really like – you will receive a prompt refund.
You have nothing to lose and a whole new life to gain.
I would like nothing better than to help you create the life you really want.
At the same time please understand I have a busy speaking and travel schedule. That means I can only take only a very limited number of private clients every month.
Working with me will obviously require an investment. Don’t worry, you won’t pay the whopping $30,000 one client told me he paid to headhunting firm.
Nor will you pay the $2,000-$3,000 frequently charged by executive resume writers, job search firms, or traditional career coaches.
Instead for far less, you’ll get…
- Instant access to your free copy of It’s Never Too Late to Find Your Calling – a $19.99 value.
