6-Figure Income Video Course for Resume Writers + Coaches

Master’s Video Course *FREE* for Resume Writers & Career Coaches Looking to Close 3- to 4-Figure Sales for a 6-Figure Stress-Free Income.

Career Directors International became my brain child in 2005.

I’d spent the prior decade+ answering questions from other resume writers I met at industry conferences on how I:

  • Could close all levels and types of clients with 4-figure sales starting in the mid-90’s
  • Won resume writing awards and their value
  • Had so many resumes published in books
  • Landed 5-figure corporate and government transition contracts
  • Hit the ground running with that new thing called “career coaching”.

Since then I’ve helped hundreds of resume writers and career coaches from all over the world to build successful businesses, free up their time to focus on what they love, find their ideal clients, and make 6-figures-plus without burning out.

In fact, my very first private client is currently grossing $800K annually.

Did you even know that was possible for resume writing and job seeker career services? 

Too often, resume writers and career coaches are getting in their own way with beliefs and processes that actually cause their business to fall short of it’s awesome potential.

And that potential IS awesome!

Helping job seekers successfully land their next position puts career professionals smack dab in a recession-proof industry where you can make an incredible living while making a major difference to those you serve.

Talk about an industry with a heart and a total win-win!

Think about how many times a client has told you:

“You saved my life”… “You saved my marriage”, …”I’m trusting you with my last $1500″… “You saved my home”.

But to do that and also come out a winner yourself, not working nights, weekends, in your room at conferences, you’ve got to know how to position, pitch, sell, and close.

I’m an introvert so those words don’t appeal to me at all.

Even if I wasn’t an introvert, selling conjures up images of car lots and insurance agents.

That’s why I love so much what I do.

To close the high-dollar sales in career services truly has nothing to do with selling.

Let’s say that again.

To close the high-dollar sales in career services has NOTHING. TO DO. WITH. SELLING.

It’s all about an educational process I call edu-fearacating.

When you build edu-fearacating into an easy, foundational consultation process, it will be (as two of my private clients have now said),

“Like you are giving away gold and your clients can’t get their credit cards out fast enough to give you”. 

So it’s not so much a matter of mastering a HUGE process as it is to understanding the key tweaks to what you are doing and how they can powerfully shift your success.

With that in mind, I’ve created a series of short 3-10 minute tip videos that let resume writers and career coaches like you pick and choose the topic that you need to get into your groove.

Put all the videos together, and you have a master’s class that helps you:

  • Capitalize on a 3-step process that moves job seekers from the perception of it’s either a cheap DIY or an expensive luxury to recognizing your service is a MUST-HAVE at any price.
  • Make clients feel the package you suggest is instinctively the “just right” fit, even if they came in only needing a bandaid.
  • Overcome your own self-talk that has held you back from claiming and quoting the rates you deserve or is stopping you from recommending complete packages. Better yet, getting to “yes” with those offers.
  • Understand when and how to talk price to keep the prospect engaged and action-oriented.
  • Utilize simple wording and processes to re-engage a prospect who has to think about it.
  • Build the right packages for positioning your offerings to ensure both you and your clients have a win-win outcome.
  • Obliterate your weaknesses with an easy up-front analysis so you always put your best foot forward when prospects ask the unnerving questions.
  • Learn how to get clients to provide service feedback that will pre-close prospects on your website or LinkedIn profile like nothing else you’ve ever tried.
  • Convert the lurkers on your email list into buyers without discounting prices.

And so on!

It’s remarkably easy to get out of your own way when you have a simple process to follow.

Consider what Cathy Lanzalaco of InspireCareers.com said about this process:

Working with Laura has transformed my sales process. Through use of her methodology I’m now closing sales at slightly more than double my former prices. Her wisdom and guidance also allowed me to begin experiencing sales breakthroughs with a particularly challenging population and even better, let me take a 2-week vacation while still having the largest revenue month of the year. I am excited about what success 2020 will bring!

So, if you are ready to get a taste of that success, check out some of the videos I’m sharing with you:

Award-winning resume writer, Cliff Flamer commented:

Hey, all, heed the wise words of our superhero goddess. Laura, suggested I bundle my services to boost deal size. It has totally worked. Actually, I haven’t bundled yet, but I added a recommendation engine to the checkout process and I’m surprised to see just how many clients (80%) are ordering Cover Letters, LinkedIn Profiles, and Resume Distribution. I guess the whole “you want fries with that?” thing works.”
