Betty helped me immensely with my resume and job search. She worked on it with me to make it more professional and resonate with prospective employers. We had several in depth meetings about what I wanted to do with my degree, what type of jobs that interested me, where I'd like to live, what kind of work environment suited me, etc. Before working with Betty I had little idea of the direction I wanted to move with my career. Betty helped me pursue jobs I was passionate about. When I was chosen for an interview Betty helped me prepare by coming up with some potential interview questions and talking me through some things I should expect. Her advice was crucial and I felt confident and relaxed during the interview and ended up landing the job. I would recommend Achieve Career Consulting to anyone. Betty does everything she can to help you succeed and put you on track to have the career you've always wanted.

    I had the good fortune of being at the Professional Opportunities Networking Group (PONG) a week ago when Lovina Akowuah did a presentation on “Structuring Your Way to Success.” She told her story in a way that filled the room with energy and excitement about looking at things in a different way, and provided a structured plan with tools to define and map out your success story. Her “I Am” Personal Affirmations are a great way to start each day. Others in the audience shared the same feelings. If you get the chance to bring her in to speak to your group or to be a participant in one of her presentations, do it. You won’t be disappointed.

      I am a IT Technician who was faced with a decision that would affect both my personal and professional life. My position was being outsourced to another company and I was faced with the decision of either taking the new outsourced job or to leave and hopefully find another position. I needed guidance and a partner to help me sort out this decision and so I reached out to Jeff. Over the time we have spent together in discussions, and assessments, I realized Jeff has a great way of looking at the world and has helped me gain perspective both professionally and personally. It was his style of coaching which made me realize many insights into my personal and professional strengths which I had not realized that I had. Since working with Jeff, I have been more confident at work, better able to communicate my needs to colleagues and superiors, and even been selected for promotion. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone who wants to explore their professional possibilities and gain confidence in their career direction. Moving forward in my life personally and professionally, I will always reach back out to work with Jeff when faced with critical career decisions.

      Suzan did a reading for me at my daughter's 18th birthday party. I was happily NOT married and worried about my career direction. Suzan told me I would meet my future husband within "5-10" months and that it would be good for my career. I argued that I'm NEVER getting married again. She sighed and said "OK, maybe it's a monogamous partnership but I see marriage." Six months later-to the day-I met the man I am now married to. Meeting him changed my mind about marriage! He has also encouraged me in a new career path that suits me a lot but that I could not have followed if I had stayed on my previous life path. Suzan was so accurate!

      During a career transition Jennifer guided me on a discovery of my innate passions, and then encouraged me to explore a life and career path driven by these passions that truly motivate me. Fast forward and these days I get up every morning and work on projects that bring me joy and truly engage me. I'm simply happy. I will always be grateful to Jennifer for the work we did together. She's insightful, inspiring, professional. Plus she's just fun to be around.

          Q & A

          Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

          What is a life coach?

          A professional, accredited life coach works with people to help them make important changes in their life, either growing in their profession or changing gears in their personal lives. They help clients turn their dreams or wishes into realistic, attainable goals. They guide people through the process of making life changes by helping them evaluate the steps they must take to reach a particular goal, then help them decide how — and whether — to take those steps in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. A life coach acts as a motivator, strategist and accountability partner. Unlike a therapist, a life coach doesn’t help solve problems from your past — they’re focused on helping you move forward with new ways of acting and thinking that will help you reach your goals. Some people specialize in particular types of life coaching, including life balancing coaches, small business coaches, executive coaches and personal finance coaches. Some meet clients in person, while others hold consultations over the phone.

          Regardless of which type of life coach you’re interested in, make sure the person holds an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential. There are three tiers of credentials: Associate, Professional and Master, which require coaching experience ranging from 100 hours to 2,500 hours.

          What is a career coach?

          If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

          • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
          • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
          • Defining your career goals
          • Creating a plan for job searching
          • Improving networking strategies and skills
          • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
          • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
          • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

          How much does a life coach cost?

          A life coach helps clients set and reach professional and personal goals, develop positive habits, and deal with stress. Some people meet with a life coach once or twice, while others form an ongoing professional relationship, meeting regularly in person or on the phone. The average national cost to meet with a life coach ranges from $80 to $130 an hour. Some coaches offer per-session pricing, especially for one-time meetings; expect to pay an average of $100-$125. People who want to work with a coach over a period of time to explore life transitions, career growth or lifestyle changes may be able to get discounted pricing in a package. For example, three 60-minute sessions cost an average of $300, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $350, and four 60- to 90-minute sessions plus unlimited contact between sessions cost an average of $400. Some specific types of coaching, such as relationship or marriage coaching, cost more than standard life coaching. For instance, three 60-minute relationship coaching sessions cost an average of $500, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $550, and six 60- to 90-minute sessions cost an average of $650 when purchased as a package. Training and experience can also affect the cost of hiring a life coach. An Associate Certified Coach, who holds a certification that requires only 60 hours of training and 100 hours of coaching experience, will charge less than a Master Certified Coach, who typically has at least 200 hours of training and 2,500 hours of coaching experience.   

          Why is career counseling important?

          Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

          • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
          • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
          • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
          • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
          • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
          • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
          • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

          How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

          A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.
