Readying the Soil for Planting

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the raised garden bed in my backyard, lying fallow as we ready for the planting season.

I am thinking about blending in the rich, loamy compost to bring nutrients to the soil and ultimately to the tender, young seedlings. Then, a deep watering or two to bring moisture back into the sun-baked earth. Both these components are an essential precursor to planting new flowers, vegetables, and fruits. Without these ingredients, plus the consistent care of us gardeners, the plants will not thrive—or even survive.

Like the readying of the garden bed, preparing for a transition in your career requires some essential ingredients. One is to get clear on what you want to create for yourself. Another is to surround yourself with supportive people who can help you reach your goal. Both components are integral to the success of your transition.

Introducing: new team members to help you reach your career goals.

To help provide that support, I’m excited to announce that my company now offers additional coaching and career practitioners. I have personally selected these seasoned professionals after a thorough screening process. They work under my company umbrella to provide you with a one-stop shop approach to career design and transition. Several packages are available to meet the varying needs – and budgets—of my clients.

Meet some of my new team members!
