what you need is not another job switch, It's a mindset shift...

You don’t have to settle, compromise or play small
But you don’t have to hustle, grind, or burnout either 
You get to create your own rules. 

It's time to start taking charge of your self-development 
And directing your own career path
Don’t wait for your boss or fate to do it. 

Don’t worry, you don’t have to do it alone. 

Do it with fellow career changers, a coach and plenty of tools and strategies to help you.

Here's the thing

what you need is not another job switch, It's a mindset shift...

  Quarter Life Crisis is a state, not an age.
  Doesn’t matter if you’re 25 or 45.

  The course is for you if:

 • You have ‘Sunday Dread’ (regularly)
 • You don’t find the work you do exciting, engaging or meaningful 
 • You hate telling people what you do for a living
 • You’re tired of attending webinars but not moving forward
 • You feel you’re capable of more
 • You don’t know what your dream job looks like
 • Or if you do know what it looks like, but you doubt you can get there.

Who is this for?

what you need is not another job switch, It's a mindset shift...

You may want a dream job with meaning (and money) to appear, like, NOW. 
But that isn’t what you need. 
Too many people put too much pressure on themselves to find THE perfect job.  

Sure you can land a dreamy gig, but what if the boss is horrible? 
Or you get bored after a year?
Or that company folds?
Trust me, all 3 have happened to me!
Or what if some unprecedented event comes along?
I don’t know, like a pandemic say, and annihilates your dream sector?

No, you don’t want that one dream job, you want many.
You don’t want to rely on opportunities landing in your lap, you want to know how to create them. 
You don’t want to hurry up and get there, you want to actually enjoy the journey

You want to finally be in control of your life and career 

And you can be.

The Truth Is...

— Estelle Deve, Designer & Founder of Studio Deve

Dina has a no-nonsense approach to coaching. She will break down your journey into simple, manageable steps, whilst giving you exercises that will make you ask yourself the right questions for you to grow. She's the perfect remedy for all creative procrastinators, and an amazing shoulder to rely on. If you want to get things done, I highly recommend giving her a call!

You want to break the cycle of ‘wrong’ jobs, bad career moves and escapist travel, and you want to start taking control of your life and career.

You're a self-dev learning junkie that knows what you have to do but has trouble applying it.

You are coasting in your job and you hate it. You want to grow, you want to get out of your comfort zone but you need some guidance and a group to cheer you on. 

You are a freelancer or self-employed creative deciding whether to pursue or pivot. 

You are in a job you like but don’t love and you’ve always secretly wanted to work for yourself but you’re either scared to take the next step or you don’t know what you’d do. 

This is for you if:

You’re a graduate. This course is for those who have had work experience.

You need a job this red-hot minute to pay the bills. Go get that money and then come back because it’s hard to focus on learning when you need to be earning.

You have zero time in your schedule to dedicate to yourself. If you’re totally swamped with work and life at the moment, leave this course for another time. I don’t want you feeling like you’re behind from the start.

You’re not ready to take action. If you want someone to wave a magic wand, I’m not that person. I can hold you accountable, equip you with the skills for change and support you, but YOU must implement the work and take responsibility for change. 

This is not for you if:

6 modules that run across 6 weeks

Access to a membership portal that houses all your training

Access to a Facebook Group for daily support and accountability

Work with a group of superb individuals who are heart-led and values-driven 

Weekly live Zoom group calls with Dina (which are also recorded)

Digestible videos of the weekly task

Worksheets that actually work

And you get access to the training for 6 months after in case you want to go back and do it all again!

Here’s what you get:

what you need is not another job switch, It's a mindset shift...

If I just get to X then Y
If I just land a dream job then I’ll be happy
If I just earn more then I’ll stop worrying
If I just have another qualification then I won’t feel like an imposter

Stop believing myths

Do you tell yourself...

STOP! Stop delaying happiness

"Now is the wrong time"

Now is not the wrong time to change jobs
You’re not at the mercy of your company to decide the pace of your progression 
You don’t need to wait for recruiters to decide your destiny

The reality is that it’s now easier than ever to pivot careers. 




Do you tell yourself...

You CAN take control of your life and career. 

You just need to get crystal clear on what it is you truly want!
And this is what the course is all about. 


You need to learn how to create fulfilment and happiness regardless of the circumstances.
Learn to work with what you’ve got and then you can thrive wherever and whenever.

Don't let fear keep you satisfied with less.

The Transformation

— Lilian Tula, Founder at Goody Please

I came across Dina at a point in my life where everything was at a crossroads. Our coaching sessions gave me the opportunity to take a step back and reflect on these big changes and decide where to go next, as well as get a fresh perspective. It was awesome getting the chance to collaborate with someone who wanted to see me win.

●  Plan for the short-term and long-term

●  Have back up plans for hiccups

●  Learn how to create opportunities

Here we put everything together so you leave with a practical roadmap and strategies for what to do next. In this module we will:

Roadmap

●  Cover how to build emotional fortitude

●  Learn how to transform your relationship with doubt and fear

●  Build your belief in yourself

●  Learn how to build bravery and cultivate courage

You can have all the strategies in the world, but if your mindset is scattered or you’re drowning in fear, then none of it will help. In this module we will:

Mindset

●  Decide what to pick when you have too many interests

●  Discover what to pick when you feel you have too few interests

●  Finally end procrastination as a by-product

●  Tap into intrinsic motivation

The ‘find your purpose’ and ‘follow your passion’ approach is BS. They’re too big of an ask which blocks your thinking. Instead, we simplify things and look for clues via your interests. In this module we will:

Interests

●  Get clear on your priorities

●  Discover your different drivers & how they change over time

●  Make decision-making easy again

Getting clear on your unique combination of values is like unlocking your inner GPS. Suddenly you’re no longer indecisive about the next step or unsure about what you should spend your time on. In this module we will:

Values

●  Identify your overused, underused and natural strengths.

●  Dissolve imposter syndrome

●  End comparison-itis

●  Get clarity on your unique set of strengths and experiences

●  Open up career opportunities

If you can’t take a compliment without making excuses or name at least 5 strengths of yours THIS IS WHERE THE WORK STARTS. We end strength blindness now. In this module we will:

Strengths

●  Get you dreaming big again

●  Expose unhelpful narratives that keep your dreams small

●  Define your version of success and happiness

●  Revive optimism

Over time, as a result of disappointments, rejections and failures, we learn to downsize our dreams. It’s too painful to want what (we think) we can’t have. Stop trying to fit yourself into jobs you’re too good for. In this module we will:

Vision

Here's a breakdown of the 6 modules and what specific problems each module is made to solves.

The modules

— Tilly Kay, Designer & Founder of Zero to Product

Before I started working with Dina I was all caught up in stress about what I thought I SHOULD be doing with my work whereas now I'm much happier just enjoying what I AM doing. She's helped me to relax and enjoy my work more, build confidence and visibility among peers and clients. To recognise strengths and put energy there, building on an already good thing.

A lot of the time we’re too smothered by the problem to see the solution. So whilst you are the master of your destiny, getting perspective from others in the group and from the live group calls can give you that breakthrough you need to help you get there faster.

'I can probably do this alone, do I really need a course?'

First, I would interrogate “impossible”. There are ways that we don’t always see.
Second, don’t peg all your happiness on one thing that’s outside of your control. It puts happiness out of reach and makes you dependent on others.
My system empowers you by giving you multiple routes to your version of happiness and success which you can start on straight away, without waiting for a job posting to pop up. There’s more than one dream job for everyone.

'I know what my dream job is but it’s impossible to get.'

I said exactly that to my first life coach about her program. I said it wasn’t the right time, I had too much on, but I would do it the following month. She told me that if I learnt to always wait for the right timing, I would miss out on witnessing how much I was capable of. If we think we’re at the mercy of our circumstances then we will never learn to have power over them. And that sent a chill through me. She was right. I signed up even though I didn’t feel ready and guess what - I surprised myself with how much I achieved in that course.

'Now’s not the right time, I’ll do it next time.'

You haven’t done MY worksheets before. These have been tried and tested on my
one-on-one clients and they work. I created bespoke exercises because I was left disappointed with a lot of the value exercises out there.
“I used to hate talking about myself and telling people what I did for a living, but after I did your Strengths and Values exercises I was so proud of my values, I started telling people what I stood for and that says so much more about me than my job title.” Charise

'I’ve done strengths and values before and it’s not made a difference.'

Some of you may have a job that’s not too shabby. It’s comfortable, it pays, there’s work life balance, changing jobs feels like a big change.
What I would ask is ‘Does your work make you feel alive?’
That’s the litmus test. Not whether you’re happy or not (we can sometimes intellectualise happiness), but whether you feel alive? What if you had all those perks and more, AND you felt alive in your days? Don't let fear keep you satisfied with less. When we compromise and settle, we’re not even scratching the surface of what we’re truly capable of.

'My job isn’t too bad, it has perks.'

By now you’re either raring to go or you have some hesitations.
Here are some of the most common hesitations my clients have had before joining my programs:

No, planning ahead is even better! Imagine after 6 weeks being able to plan out what you can do NOW to help you grow and what you need in the next 6 months - 1 year to help you move closer to that dream work and life.
This course is about getting clarity on what the next move is, it’s up to you when you make that move.

I personally cannot wait to help you navigate your Quarter Life Crisis…..

I remember so clearly being in the heat of my QLC, in yet another job with no meaning or development (that I cared about). I was a PA to a horrible boss, I had strict working hours and spent my days endlessly rearranging his diary, desperately wishing to be the queen of my diary and call my own shots.

That was 6 years ago. My dream finally came true! Now I have complete freedom of my diary. I decide when I work, who I work with, what work I do and, crucially, there’s no ceiling to how much I can earn. If I could transform my life like that, you can too!

More than anything I want to help you overcome fear and transform your lives into something you’ve always dreamt of.

You may not even realise how close you are to making it happen for you. I don’t want you to give up just before that moment.

Let’s do this!
