YouMap® is:

a method for 

clarity & intention

To Find your path, blaze your trail,

& live unleashed


Considering that one-third of our lives are spent working, career satisfaction is pretty important. And, it’s not only important for our personal well-being, but also for the economy.

Here are some 2020 Career Stats to illustrate how impactful our careers really are:

  • Nearly 75% of employees quit their boss, not their job.
  • 79% of employees would refuse a higher-paying job from a company that failed to act against sexual harassment.
  • 45% of employees believe they have gained weight at their current job.
  • More than one-half of all American workers are disengaged at work.
  • Workers whose input is encouraged and appreciated are four times as likely to be more productive.
  • 96% of employees think showing empathy is an important way to increase employee retention.

I didn’t dig too deep for statistics, but you don’t have to. I also know that grief, on top of job dissatisfaction costs the economy billions of dollars every year. According to the 2003 Grief Index Study conducted by The Grief Recovery Institute, the financial losses to businesses due to grief in the workplace was over seventy-five billion dollars (that’s $75B – with a “B”)! Today, estimates are more like $100 billion dollars.

YouMap┬« is vital for hiring, career-pathing and exploration, leadership and team development, succession planning, and offboarding. It matters because YOU matter. And, when you understand WHY you matter, and the contribution you make to the world, that’s empowering knowledge.┬á

The Four Pillars of Career Satisfaction

Your strengths are your natural, innate talents that come easily to you. The Gallup Organization reports that those who use their strengths daily in their job are six times more engaged at work. Also, your strengths are so unique to you that only 1 in 33 million people will have the same top five strengths as you. That makes you and your contribution to the world pretty incredible, my friend! And, YouMap® identifies your top five strengths (which are also your priorities).

Values are largely shaped by our experiences and are the main source of so much career misery for individuals is when a career doesn’t align with our values. And, considering values dictate what’s important to us, it’s easy to see how most job dissatisfaction is as a result of our values being dishonored. YouMap┬« will explain why your top ten values are important to you and why they matter.┬á

Skills (developed from experience) are the abilities and expertise that contribute to an individual’s ability to perform roles with competency. And, according to Korn Ferry International, 85% of skills are transferrable from job to job. YouMap┬« helps to reveal the most preferred and least preferred skills.┬á

How you’re wired is personality-based and refers to your natural preferences relative to interests, passion, and motivation. “Follow your passion” can be misguided career advice because passion is only one of the four pillars of career satisfaction. YouMap┬« will reveal your interests and motivation, and help to discover the best career fit.

YouMap® is a guided, personal journey that includes the four pillars of satisfaction & coaching if you so choose.

youmap┬« is unlike Myers Briggs, Enneagram, Disc, or any other assessment you’ve ever taken.

Youmap® provides the info & then helps answer the question:

“Now what?”

Has someone ever offered you a piece of wisdom that you really needed to hear at a certain moment in your life? And, afterward, you felt differently – your perspective shifted, you could see more clearly?

YouMap┬« combined with grief support will, without a doubt in my mind, give you more inner peace, clarity, and direction than anything else you’ve tried that hasn’t yet worked for you. Why? Because both of these programs are uniquely tailored to YOU and your life experience.┬á

Take a chance on yourself to discover your inner-spark and, when combined with Grief Recovery, unleash your heart of its suffering.


CHOICE. Choosing YouMap┬« is allowing yourself to discover where you’re at and where you want to go.


EMBRACE.┬áYou may have spent years focusing on others, or, perhaps grief has shown you what isn’t working. Whatever the reason you find yourself at a crossroads, embrace the process of self-discovery for your today and tomorrow.


TOGETHER. You’re not alone in your dissatisfaction or along your journey. I’m right there with you as you discover what it is you truly want. As your guide, I’m here to support you and help you discover, for yourself, what to do next. YouMap┬« is not “cookie-cutter” because you’re not “cookie-cutter.”┬á


NOW IS YOUR TIME.┬áYou can learn to unleash your heart of career grief or overall life dissatisfaction. You can live life the way you’d like to feel. Discover your strengths, values, preferred and burnout skills, and the type of work that aligns with your personality TODAY! Your future will thank you!

With YouMap┬« Coaching,┬á you’ll either walk away, as I did, with affirmation that you’re in full alignment with your work, or, you’ll walk away knowing what needs to change. And, more than likely, it will be a combination of the two. Because, this information arms you with knowledge that is applicable to both your personal and professional life. And, moving forward, you’ll discern your own path forward, with your YouMap┬« as your guiding post, as well as a litmus test for what you bring into your life moving forward.┬á


ÔťĘ If you have narrowed down your job search to a few options, and are a self-directed learner, the DIY YouMap┬« would probably work for you.

┬áÔťĘ If you are in a life transition and would like some coaching around your results, as well as an opportunity to get questions answered, then the YouMap┬« Mini-Debrief would be a good fit.

ÔťĘ If you are new to the workforce, are in a life transition (making you feel lost), or have experienced a devastating loss (in childhood or recent) that’s directly impacted your career and life, then the Full YouMap┬« Coaching Program is best.


The YouMap® career discovery engagement will support your goal of identifying feasible and desirable career options aligned to your strengths, values, motivated skills, and interests and equip you for better decision-making for your next career move.

You will learn more about yourself, and not only that, what to do with the information. Your YouMap® is, quite literally, a map of YOU! Learn what to do with yourself by knowing yourself! 


YouMap┬« is for anyone wanting to learn more about themselves and what makes them tick. More importantly, it’s for those who want a guide-post to refer to in initiating a change in career, learn their blind spots, understand themselves better, and, my favorite, learn how grief impacts them and how to navigate it – based on their individuality.

Those Who May Also Consider YouMap®:

  • Military Personnel/Veterans Transitioning
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Stay-at-Home Parents
  • College or College-Bound Students
  • Youth/Teens (there are programs specific to Youth/Teens)
  • Corporate Employees/Employers

ABSOLUTELY! YouMap┬« is more than a career clarifying program. Learning your strengths, values, and how your wired assists you in your relationships, too. Having an awareness about what’s important to us and understanding ourselves on a deeper level, helps us to clarify where we need to focus some attention (and intention) in our lives. Also, perhaps you have always wanted to start your own business! YouMap┬« is the perfect way to get started!


Both YouMap® and the Grief Recovery program honors individuality and uniqueness.

Just as our life paths are unique, so too is how we grieve. That being said, both of these programs are designed with the end in mind and the framework to get there.

Together, these two programs will unleash your heart of suffering and help you to discover, for yourself, the next steps that aren’t based on anyone else’s values but your own.┬á

What A YouMap® Looks Like

Regardless of which YouMap® offer you choose, you receive a full YouMap®, which includes the summary page you see in my example below. If you choose the Mini Debrief or Full YouMap® Coaching together, we will create your Unique Contribution Statement. Think of this as your elevator pitch. This answers the questions: who you are, what you do, who you help, and what the outcome will be, in a concise, short sentence.

Your YouMap┬« profile can be included with a resume or job application, college or program application, with a proposal if you’re an entrepreneur, utilized in aiding a transition from one position to another, and ultimately, as your guide and foundation of understanding for the future you wish to create for yourself. And, I’d be remiss if I didn’t add that it will help you to better understand your grieving process more deeply and bring awareness around your blind spots (i.e., challenges).
