I’ve Been Where You Are & Together We Can Change the Game…Easily
Hi, I’m Laura DeCarlo, President of Career Directors International. I am a multi-certified career professional; award-winning resume writer and job placement director; 4-time published author; member of the prestigious Forbes Coaches Council; Certified Customer Acquisition Specialist; Certified Content Marketing Specialist; Certified Money Breakthrough Method® Coach; Certified Money, Marketing and Soul Coach®; and Infinite Possibilities Certified Trainer. I’ve spent over 20 years in the careers industry building and running successful 6-figure-plus businesses, and coaching other practitioners to do the same.
Because I walk what I talk on the importance of lifelong learning, I’m currently working my way through seven more intensive certifications to stay up-to-date in all I know and coach on in copywriting, conversion funnels, email marketing, community marketing, SEO, social media marketing, video marketing, and more.
However, I know what it can feel like to be stuck. You can be:
Stuck with too many options and not knowing where to turn, who to trust, or what to do next.
Stuck doing the same thing day in and day out and feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, and ready to burn out.
Stuck never being able to quite make your business into the success you want it to be…
Don’t get me wrong — stuck isn’t just about not feeling or being successful! You can be rocking your business and already earning six figures, maybe even have subcontractors and lots of excited prospects who buy from you. But, if you’re exhausted by maintaining the momentum… If you are letting go of your dreams to do more, help more, and have more die…. then you are stuck.
Let me tell you a quick story:
I’ve always had goals and placed strong emphasis on taking the steps to reach them. I’ve hit a lot of milestones in my career. In fact, I’ve been running six figure career businesses that many want to emulate, and that people pay me thousands of dollars to coach on. To everyone looking in, it looks like the dream — self-employed, setting my own hours, time to dance and host parties…
I was reaping the rewards of hard work and dedication, but for a while something had just not been feeling right. Then one day late last year I woke up and I said,
“What the hell am I doing? What the hell am I offering? Where do I even go from here?”
I realized then that anybody can be stuck on the hamster wheel. Your hamster wheel may be just spinning and spinning, doing the same thing over and over, feeling exhausted and overwhelmed, and wondering how you get ahead. Or maybe like me, you can be really really successful on the hamster wheel, you can run faster, even get a little strut going. You’re in your groove doing what you do, and doing it well.
Whether you are exhausted and feeling overwhelmed or just feel a little nagging feeling, perhaps a little sad inside, it takes its toll. For me, I found I was waking up and I didn’t feel quite as excited, vibrant, and ready to charge forward for the day. I started dreading the weekend ending. I started to even throw little tantrums.
You see, nothing ever changes when you are caught on the hamster wheel and when nothing ever changes, your dream can start to die. Let’s face it – we have three ways of being:
- Passionate about going after our dream.
- Stuck in a good enough model where we have stopped dreaming and are just getting by and ‘doing’ until we just can’t take it anymore (which means burnout or going back to the 9 to 5).
- According to Les Brown, “Waking up in our dream and wondering why we aren’t satisfied anymore”.
I was waking up living the dream I set out to live and suddenly it wasn’t big enough anymore. But I never noticed it happening. Not only was I the hamster on the wheel; I was also that frog in a pot of water on the stove! Do you know the frog story? Put a frog in boiling water and he’ll jump right out. Put the same frog in room temp water and he’ll leisurely hang out never noticing as you slowly raise the temperature. He will boil to death.
Not only was I trotting on the wheel I was boiling to death at the same time. And let me tell you, it’s no fun to be going that fast while you are boiling to death. I live in Florida – I know what it is like to exercise in the heat and this wasn’t it.
Do you want to know what I did?
I made my dream bigger by following proven pathways to success.
My clients, my coaches (yes, I have coaches), and those closest to me can tell you that I jumped off that hamster wheel and I climbed out of the bottom of that hellfire pot so I could finally put on my superhero cape and start flying.
I knew that the only way to change what I didn’t like was to change it. So, I gave back to myself and I gave back to my success.
I invested in myself with the training I needed to simply my life, dramatically improve my profits, and help me get past bobble head ‘shiny object syndrome’ overwhelm from all the options, free advice, and craziness that can drag you down while you are trying to build your business.
Let’s face it there is SO MUCH information out there — how are you supposed to know where to put your focus? Battling this overwhelm alone is enough to kill your success!
But in my case, I invested wisely in myself. And you know what? It was worth every penny. Every single penny. Sometimes I didn’t even know where it was going to come from but I realized that if I never changed the game for myself, then I was going to stay stuck. I’m worth more than that. YOU are worth more than that.
So I got off that wheel, out of that pot, and started working on a bigger dream. As a result, I totally love my life again. My revenue has gone up. The universe is giving me gifts that I couldn’t have imagined receiving because this stuff is like a snowball – it really does compound. And my clients? They are loving it! You can imagine that if I am experiencing these really huge wins, then my clients are too.
Now I’ve taken all that made me a six-figure producer as a resume writer and career coach, and combined it with my expertise in coaching career professionals to six-figure success along with all my new training. I’ve done this to create a super simple and fun way for you to learn, grow, get out of overwhelm, and finally have an easy-to-follow pathway to profit.
It really is easy. You won’t have seen this stuff before. You’ll go through exercises and strategies, and walk away with easily implementable plans that would have taken you years and lots of investment and research (if at all) to get to working on your own.
Which means you could be getting off the hamster wheel, climbing out of the pot, and creating an exciting life and business that you love too in a very short time. Together, we can do this. You don’t have to find yourself standing (or madly running) in this exact same spot in a few months, next year, or the year after.
This CAN be your time to fully realize what is possible for you and your business!

6FFP is Backed with ROI to Help You Grow
Here is an outline of what you can expect from each segment:
Class – Branding with Archetypes (3 sessions)
There’s a unique part of you that many business owners mistakenly believe they have to hold back. In this module, you’ll discover your Brand Archetype, which unlocks the powerful, instantly recognizable presence within you that’s a client-attraction and opportunity magnet.
- Capture your spirit, personality and passion into an authentic brand promise you can use in all your marketing to immediately begin growing your business.
- Instantly create a hot marketing message (you’ll love the template).
- Confidently choose your website design and images, write attention-getting emails, sales copy and marketing material (even if you’re not a writer!).
- Identify your unique brilliance and use it as a powerful catalyst for focusing your gifts and talents on your most profitable actions.
- Use your Brand Archetype to immediately begin growing your business – get what drives you in your business, your brand vision.
- Protect yourself in what you will not tolerate with clients (setting boundaries).
- Get really clear in who your clients are – how you want them to feel when they find you, when they consider hiring you, and when they make the commitment to work with you.
After decades of classes and programs where I end up with a three ring binder or a spiral bound notebook for of notes, and still don’t know where to go, finally I have everything in one concise executive summary.
What’s more, after stepping away from it for 4-5 weeks, when I reviewed it I was blown away by the succinctness and the clarity that resonated so deeply with who I was and what my business delivered. What this means is that all of my products, all of my materials, and all of my offerings now speak with a single voice and a single vision.
– Pat Schuler, The Gemini Resources Group, Home of Kick Butt Sales Training
Class – Niche Breakthrough Secrets
Are you ready to discover your authentic, lucrative niche so that you can attract and keep more ideal clients? Revealing your niche is surprisingly easy with the simple steps I’ll walk you through. Examples of what you’ll discover in this eye-opening module:
- Pinpoint your most lucrative niche (it’s often right under your nose and I’ll coach you to discover it so you accomplish this important goal) .
- Re-invent your business without discarding what’s working or starting over (sometimes, all it takes is a few simple tweaks to experience a surge in new business…I will coach you to quickly and confidently make those tweaks).
- Learn how to quickly eliminate any emotional blocks you may have to choosing your perfect niche (this is a simple mindset shift that will give you permission to confidently surge ahead in all areas of your business).
- Determine if your niche is “hot or not”.
- Create an authentic marketing message (you’ll love the template I’ll coach you through that teases out the right words for you to use).
This is going to sound arrogant but I’ve been through dozens of branding and ideal client exercises over the years. I thought there was very little new for me to learn. This is such a concise way of addressing the challenge of speaking directly to my best prospects so they are magnetized to me. I was surprised (and a little dismayed) to find so much new clarity and dimension in this work with Laura. The bottom line result is I will have two new programs on the street before the end of the year.
– Pat Schuler, The Gemini Resources Group, Home of Kick Butt Sales Training
Class – Signature System (3 sessions)
Every business owner has their own special magic, but they need someone to help them transform that magic into a Signature System that tells clients exactly what they get when they hire you. In this module, I’ll walk you step by step through how to transform your expertise into an exciting Signature System that attracts a steady stream of ideal clients.
Here is just a sampling of how you can use your Signature System to generate new income:
- Quickly transform that “thing you do” into an exciting Signature System that is easy to market and enroll new clients. You will be able to talk about the magic.
- Eliminate “what do I offer” overwhelm, clarifying your most profitable path to cash.
- Package your services into a signature line of programs, courses and more, taking clients through the steps of your Signature System.
- Position yourself as a valued expert in the eyes of your ideal clients.
- Create powerful marketing bullets for your marketing and offer discussions that let you transition from ‘this is what I do’ to ‘here are all the profit points in what I do’.
- Stand out from your competitors with signature language and signature products.
- Turn free stuff in your offer that you take for granted into true value ROI.
When you’ve been an expert in your field for decades, it’s easy to get tunnel vision about what you do and what you bring to the party. You have a system that’s profitable, sustainable, and it works, and that always added up to a successful model to me. So, when I went into the Signature System workshop with Laura, candidly I didn’t expect a lot.
Imagine my surprise when at the end of the program I had a whole new vision for my core profit program that could bring me more prospects, help convert those prospects because I now saw and could articulate the ROI of my offerings in a whole new light, and let me create profit in areas I had previously been giving away. In fact, being extremely impatient, I couldn’t wait to get away from her so I could get back to the office and start incorporating these new, winning strategies that would make my business, my service, and my brand stand out in a whole new way.

Class – Packages That Sell
Class – Getting Paid What You’re Worth
Pricing, packaging, and getting paid what you’re worth – Oh My! These three topics are at the epicenter of every entrepreneur’s journey and can lead to fear, confusion, underpricing, under-delivering, and even business paralysis. But almost everything is riding on your ability to master this trifecta. Do so and you have the keys to the kingdom. Don’t and you sign yourself up for working too many hours, too much stress, and future burnout. Luckily, there is an easy step-by-step process that you can follow to making these work for you with results as high as doubling or tripling your current revenue!
In this session you will gain insight, strategies, and tools for making pricing and packaging work for you while understanding your worth, what you need to make, and how to get it. In this session you can expect to:
- Shift out of the trading time for dollars model and into the mindset of owning your value.
- Learn what makes a package juicy and adds value without adding multiple hours of work.
- Stop overloading your packages, saving you tons of time and energy.
- Trim the number of days worked each month, freeing your time and increasing your happiness.
- Know what to say when clients ask, “How much do you charge?”
- Learn easy models for your coaching discovery sessions and resume writing consultations that work by taking selling out of the equation.
- Understand what to charge for each of your services, programs, products or packages.
- Watch more revenue start becoming yours with grace and ease.
- Understand the true ROI you bring to the table and why your prospects can’t afford not to hire you.
As soon as I got off of the phone with you after our third coaching session, I increased my prices and revised my packages based on your suggestions. I got an inquiry that night, used your 3 step process and the client invested for double what I was charging!
I am glad I invested in your services. I made that money back and then some!
– Sally Calloway, The Career Coach
I recouped my coaching investment with you within the first week of raising my prices, we are now ahead of schedule for our annual financial goals (and it is only Jan 9th!) and these changes will empower me with more free time to create more information products for my business.
Thank you!!! I could not have figured this out as easily or as quickly without your help, and that’s the truth.
Last year, thanks to you, we had a 30% increase in revenue and a 30% decrease in clients. I look at the client decrease as a very good thing – it gives me room to strategically grow while we make more and spend more energy on our deserving clients.
Additionally, I did go ahead with your idea to bring a service in house last year that had previously been outsourced. We dramatically increased the quality of the results we were achieving for our clients and we captured about another $7K in revenue.
– Mary Elizabeth Bradford, The Career Artisan
Class – Building Your Profit Pyramid
This is a favorite area for everyone because it is really fun and exciting to see all the ways you could be dipping deep into your well of opportunity and bringing up true gems that let you expand your income, typically without having to actually create any new content. The fact is that we all have information and processes we take for granted, bundle, and give away (even when we can’t see it) that could be leveraged into group programs, made into bonus teasers to build your list, and create new profit centers.
In this module we will go through a series of fun and powerful exploratory exercises to turn your ideas and existing services into a powerful pyramid of far-ranging profit-making solutions. In this module you can expect to:
- Stop giving away all your time on your least income producing activities.
- Shift from a time consuming one-on-one model to a simple, streamlined flow of offers that let you more easily plan your year, free your time, and predict your income.
- Confidently choose which ideas to implement first, next, and so on (so you make more money quickly).
- Get the secret to creatively adding new income streams – with minimal effort.
- Learn to stack offers so one leads natural to another, creating a cascade of cash flow month after month (vs. that one sale per client).
Class – Mindset & Power Breakthrough: Busting Past Invisible Mindsets
We all have stories, usually from way back in childhood, that set us up for a certain level of success. It might be something you observed and internalized from parents or grandparents, lessons you were taught by a teacher or family friend, or the voice of an authority figure in your life. The truth is, you probably aren’t even aware of the invisible barriers that guide your beliefs, behaviors, pricing, profits, and even level of guilt and fear around your business. But one thing is for sure – they are holding you back from your greatness, your happiness, and your abundant possibilities.
In this module we will go through an eye-opening activity together during our live session to help you identify, make peace with, and overwrite your current limiting mindset with a new Power Statement.
You can expect to:
- Feel a huge sense of relief and freedom around your business and things that previously stressed you out/held you back.
- Gain a simple model you can use again and again to turnaround other limiting beliefs as they surface so you can continue moving forward and not holding your own progress back.
- Take powerful steps forward in focusing on your goals, wants, and needs in running a successful business.
- Depending on the barrier you are dealing with, you will find that you can now ask for higher prices with confidence and calm, put aside fears of what others think and build a business you are proud of, or stop standing in your own way for getting what you want.
- Get rid of the ghosts that tell you how you have to run your business to be successful.
Class – Business Boundaries
Boundaries — most entrepreneurs aren’t even aware of the boundaries they could be setting to create win-win happiness for both themselves and their clients. Yet, they are a key foundation to the success stories you have, the referrals you will receive, the return business you will gain, and how smoothly each client engagement will go. Without the right boundaries it will feel like your business is running you instead of you running your business! In this session you will learn to:
- Make your clients magically do what you want, cutting through confusion, time-wasting conversations and emails, and frustration.
- Apply techniques that make closing the sale so much easier while also dramatically upping your referrals and return customers.
- Identify your client success rate through an easy process of client follow up.
- Set boundaries that make running your business a peaceful, non-dramatic process.
- Put clients at ease with processes they can follow and love.
Class – Your Website & Your Social Media
Your online presence and identity represent the bulk of your opportunity for you to make revenue as well as to let revenue opportunities slip through your fingers. This is such an important part of your success, and it’s one that most entrepreneurs are losing out on through language, positioning, and use. In this module you can expect to:
- Make your website and social presence attract vs. detract and distract to turn more prospects into customers.
- Utilize tools to easily schedule client discovery sessions.
- Identify, create, and use attractive lead magnets and use them to fill your prospect funnel.
- Build a highly engaged fan nation through social media who are hungry for your offers.
Class – Money Mastery Magic
So you make a plan. Set goals. Decide to ‘do something’. Even try budgeting. Only before you know it you’re right back where you started. What happened?! But still you want IT – more money and the freedom it promises. Only minus the conflicting emotions. The arguments with your significant other. The guilt and the fear. In this session you will get:
- Learn practical, business-building money tools.
- Uncover 3 empowering principles that put your finger firmly on the pulse of money in a business.
- Gain a simple system that gives you x-ray vision and insight into the ‘money side’ of a business (and avoids those complicated spreadsheets), plus you’ll create strong and positive emotional connections to making more money in your business.
Q&A / Hotseat Coaching Sessions
Learning the program content is only half the journey — you have to apply it too. In these eight pre-recorded sessions you will see how former participants of the live program get coached by Laura DeCarlo. The value in these sessions is deep as you gain insight to overcome barriers and boundaries, figure out how to make the modules most actionable for you, and hear how others are applying the content to build and grow their businesses. From these pre-recorded programs you can expect to:
- Gain confidence and clarity on what it takes to overcome each challenge.
- Apply the program content to your business.
- Take each new and empowering step forward.
