If you're here, then my guess is that you want a lot more out of your worklife. You know you want to feel more energized, fulfilled, and creative in your career, but aren't sure how to make it happen.

There's no shortage of job-search related resources out there. You've probably received a ton of advice about what you should do with your career, whether it's from your peers, loved ones, or "experts." Maybe you've got a library full of career books or have exhausted yourself making pros and cons lists for different career paths.

I've been where you are right now, and I know how painful, foggy, and hopeless it can feel.

A lot of the external information we receive is helpful, but that alone isn't going to get you into a career that’s the best use of your unique strengths.

So many of us get lost along the way in our careers because we lose touch with our own internal guidance systems. We forget what it feels like to know what we need, to be sure of what we want, and to have confidence in our intuition. 

My goal is to help you reconnect with the part of you that knows what you're on this earth to do. 

Here are some of the questions I help people answer:

  • Am I good at anything?

  • How do I get out of a job I hate?

  • Is it possible to find work that's really meaningful to me?

  • Isn't work supposed to be hard?

  • This sucks. How can I feel better?

If you find yourself circling back to those questions again and again, it might be time to try something different. It might be time to partner with someone who believes in, makes room for, and trusts your inner wisdom


The Process: A Wild New Work

“There is a wilderness in every person.” -Toko-pa Turner

Making a major transformation in your career can be difficult to do on your own - even if you're ambitious and motivated to make a change. My role as a coach is to help you get clear about how you want to be of service in your career, reflect back to you your own giftedness, and create a space in which you can expand beyond what you thought was possible.

I've designed a spiritual, ecological, and feminine coaching program called A Wild New Work. Here's what that means to me:

First, the program is spiritual. Too often, career development is reduced to a problem that needs to be solved. But you are not a problem to be solved, and while you may feel stuck in your career, I come to this work with the belief that you are more than just a brain and a body - you have a soul, and that part of you has a lot to say about the work you're meant to do in this life. A Wild New Work incorporates spiritual tools such as ritual, mindfulness, guided visualization, oracle cards, astrology, dreamwork, and any other tools that feel resonant to you. I would never force you to use a tool you're not comfortable with, and if you already have your own spiritual practice, I will absolutely honor that.

Second, the program is ecological. I believe we are fundamentally a part of Nature and that She is our greatest teacher - especially in our careers. By working with the Moon's cycles, the Zodiac calendar, and inviting you to do this work outdoors, you will leave with a deeper connection to the Wild outside of you and within you.

Finally, the program is feminine. I've seen the power that comes from being soft, from focusing on nourishment first, and from making sure that my clients are empowered to express their femininity at work in whatever ways resonate for them. This process will absolutely leave you with outcomes and real-life accomplishments, but those are not its sole purpose. Its other, equally important purpose is to leave you feeling more whole and more like you than when you started.

I believe in the power of this process, and so do those who have worked with me:

"My experience with Megan is truly shaping my foundation of how I approach showing up to work now and in the future." - Megan S.

"I have nothing but good things to say about working with Megan during my job search. I would recommend her to anyone who is in need of practical advice, assistance, and encouragement in their professional life." - Brittany B.

"[Megan] has an inviting and calming presence that lends itself to creating an open and trusting environment. I feel re-energized after spending time in her groups and one-on-one." - Sarah S.

This program offers a space in which insightful professionals can transform their worklives. A Wild New Work offers you:

  • A sense of alignment between your authentic self and the work you do in the world

  • Real ownership over your career and the choices you make professionally

  • Ease and flow in your worklife (too many people try to push their way into work they love; we can let it be easy)

  • Knowledge of what your unique set of strengths are

  • Clarity about what will really work for you as you move forward in your career

The program is rigorous, but the people who show up ready to do the work and take ownership over their lives thrive within the momentum that we build. I work with clients who live in the Portland metro area as well as folks from all over the country, and with professionals from all sorts of industries. The most important thing I look for in new clients is simply an intention to change and a willingness to do the work that gets them there.

As a seeker in A Wild New Work, you receive:

  • Opening and closing rituals which create an energetic container for your work

  • Weekly journaling prompts to keep you focused on your intentions

  • Recorded audio responses to your journaling prompts in which I reflect back to you themes and offer strategies you can try

  • 10 one on one coaching sessions in person or over the phone/Skype

  • An in-depth Intuitive Career Reading (learn more here)

  • Optional work to supplement our coaching sessions, including guided meditations, readings, and activities

The total cost for the program is $1,800 and is paid in six monthly installments of $300.

While scholarships for this program aren’t currently available, clients experiencing financial hardship can find meaningful, affordable support in the Soft Coaching process.

Enrollment for A Wild New Work is open until Tuesday, October 23rd. The next cohort will begin their journey on October 24, 2018 and conclude our time together on the Spring Equinox of 2019. There is very limited space in this program, so if you feel drawn to dive deeper into your giftedness this winter, I invite you to schedule a free 20-minute Clearness Call with me below. This will give us a chance to learn more about one another and see if working together is the right fit at this time.
