A Career Development School Unlike Any Other
I received 3 competing job offers in one week. Tomorrow, I will accept a consulting role that will provide me with a 50% total salary increase. I believe the work with Toni’s program and in other endeavors will change lives. I know it did for me!
Coaching and support helped me to land a better job, and negotiate a 73% salary increase.
I gained more confidence in my personal elevator pitch, tools/strategy to navigate the workforce/salary negotiations, and a better understanding of online branding.

I have increased confidence and self-worth. The self advocacy I have demonstrated this past year has been acknowledged as maturity and leadership by peers and managers. I am regularly exceeding expectations in my performance reviews . . .
