We've all been told that if we follow our passions, we'll never work a day in our life. Unfortunately, that's only one piece of the equation, so many people spend years of their life chasing after something that can never be obtained while feeling like a failure along the way. Even worse, some people remain in jobs they hate far longer than they should because they just don't know how to make their next move. Career indecision is real, and it's something that too many people suffer through, allowing "paralysis by analysis" to keep them from making any decision at all.
Luckily, you don't need to know every move of your career to start - just your best next move. In this course, you’ll look to your past, present, and future to identify your typical patterns of behavior, see what actually makes you happy and unhappy at work, and key in on what you’re missing (if anything) to land your dream job. You'll learn how to align your strengths, interests, and motivators to various roles, industries, and company cultures perfect for you. We'll put it all together and create your very own Career Compass, which will act as your guide to figuring out what move to make next in your career.
Life is too short to hate your job - start treating your career like the adventure it is.
"This course was 100% worth the time and money I spent to take it. I was nervous going into it, but Baily knocked it out of the park. The combination of cathartic therapy and effective plan-mapping was great. Everything she spoke about felt relevant and completely resonated. Her templates and worksheet questions encouraged me to think of my own situation with an outsider's perspective, I was able to get out of my own head and look at myself and my career in a new way with her tools. I found this course illuminating, and highly constructive. I left feeling positive about what the future can hold for me." - Lexi
"Baily touched several key points in a very quiet and smooth way, making me reflect without feeling frustrated about my career journey. I really liked her personal tone and the way she merged theory, examples, and exercises in order to maintain the level of energy and reflection of the course." - Matina
"I thoroughly enjoyed The Career Experiment course. Baily's insights and ideas were raw examples of the challenges that people young and old face in today's ever-changing workplace. The recommendations from this course spurred new thoughts, and opened up new ideas on how to tackle the next phases of my career. I highly recommended Baily's work and applying these concepts to your own life!" - Christy
"I took the Career Experiment course on a whim and with little expectations. Within about 5 minutes I knew I discovered someone amazing. I spent the rest of the time completely engaged and nodding my head to pretty much anything Baily was saying. She's got street smarts in the career world and brings so much positivity, motivation and truth to your career and your personal happiness. Don't waste another moment if you are considering a career transition, sign up right now!" - Shannon
I may be many things, but tall is not one of them. I hail from Florida, where I spent my youth being over-involved in extracurriculars and dreaming of being everything from a TV show host to a children’s book author to an astronaut.
Although I've mostly accepted the fact that being an astronaut is probably out of the picture (never say never), I have certainly treated my career like the “Choose Your Own Adventure” stories I devoured as a child. I've done everything from running seminars in Singapore at AACSB, to teaching 8-year-olds about profit and loss statements at Bizainy, to holding actors accountable for their professional goals at my own company, GSD Gal. I learned to do trapeze for a "Baily's Big Adventure" webisode, ran a promotional campaign for Warner Brothers that helped people eat and workout like Tarzan at OMD, and traveled the country collaborating with new friends and creating impactful partnerships at General Assembly. At some point during all of that I picked up an MBA with a specialization in Entrepreneurship and Management, and coined myself the “Startup Huntress” for my ability to sniff out the next up-and-coming companies in tech and beyond.
Of all of these experiences, it’s my most recent career endeavor that thrills me the most. After finding myself in a job that I immediately knew wasn’t the right fit, I birthed the concept for what would become, “The Career Experiment”, an online course and series of workshops aimed at helping people figure out their best next career move. I firmly believe that if more people were happy in their jobs, the world would be a much better place. I now travel the world preaching the gospel of attaining career satisfaction to anyone who needs it (hint - everyone), and I'm launching a podcast in the summer of 2017 on the same topic.
Never one to just have a few things going on, I'm a Past President and 2017 Chairwoman of the Board for the Santa Monica Jaycees, an organization made up of tomorrow’s leaders and today’s young professionals, and a member of Ellevate, a women’s network striving to change the culture of business from the inside out.
