    Career Industry Accelerator Club

    Group business coaching and training to accelerate success for resume writers and career coaches.

    There’s NOTHING Like the Accelerator Club to Ensure Unlimited Success as a Career Industry Entrepreneur!

    CDI's Career Industry Accelerator Club

    The Accelerator Club Allows Members to Rapidly Build Relationships & Heighten Their Results!

    Take the Accelerator Club on a Test Drive

    We invite you to experience just some of the energy, networking, and learning that goes on in an Accelerator Club Zoom meeting by watching our November 2022 meeting.

    Reminder: It was called the Fly Higher Tribe at that time.

    We started the session with an initial connect coaching activity that will get you thinking about a transition you are going through in your life currently and helping you find inspiration, support, and connection.

    NOTE: Connection takes place in breakout sessions so you won’t get to see that but you can use the time to do the activity yourself and just imagine how powerful it would be to experience it with colleagues.

    Then you’ll hear the hot seat coaching and engagement section where we discuss:

    • How to reinvent the client coaching feedback process to be far less time consuming and draining.
    • Raising your rates today – when and how + a sneak peek at the 2023 resume pricing survey results.
    • Changing how you process payments for one-off sessions so you aren’t chasing money.
    • Packaging strategies and a la carte pricing wisdom.

    You won’t see the downloadable on-the-go audio MP3 file or all the resources that are posted in our private member forum after the meeting so that you can deep-dive further into topics of choice.

    But we expect you’ll still experience what gives our club such an energizing vibe!

    Note that the video replay button only displays to existing members and requires login.

    And Just Who Am I to Lead The Accelerator Club?

    Hi, I’m Laura DeCarlo, President of Career Directors International, multi-certified business success coach, award-winning resume writer and award-winning placement director, author of four books including Resumes for Dummies, and multi-certified professional.

    I’m also currently a Certified Customer Acquisition Specialist, Certified Content Marketing Specialist, Money Breakthrough Method® Coach, Infinite Possibilities Certified Trainer, Certified XChange Guide, elite member of Forbes Coaches Council, and a Certified Money, Marketing and Soul Coach®.

    But that’s the tip of the iceberg because I am ALWAYS learning what works in career services, resume writing, coaching, and business with ongoing training in areas of AI, copywriting, conversion funnels, email marketing, community marketing, SEO, social media marketing, video marketing, curriculum development, and more.

    What matters is the results I help club members to attain!

    For example, we’ve had members:

    • Listen to one session and use the knowledge to launch a $3600/mo new revenue stream.
    • Turn a potential chargeback into $1K added profitability.
    • Overcome concerns and embrace AI tools like ChatGPT to speed up their work.
    • Reduce grueling 14+ hour days to 4-day work weeks through more effective pricing, packaging, and consultations.
    • Avoid pitfalls in start ups and slowdowns in existing businesses by leaning into best practices and emerging solutions.
    • Identify new opportunities for products, programs, and solutions to work less and earn more.
    • Navigate industry challenges like pandemic shutdowns to maintain profitability.

    We’ve seen friendships, partnerships, accountability, and fun come about through our engagements.

    Plus, so much more!

    The Accelerator Club IS what you need to take big steps forward! 

    Sound expensive or too good to be true?  It’s not.

    The Accelerator Club Membership Add-On Tier Includes:

    6-Figure 1-1 Business Consulting for Just Pennies:

    Laura DeCarlo’s 1-1 business consulting program is $2697 for six private sessions.

    Your rate for a year of Accelerator Club is less than just ONE session with Laura. (Depending on when you joined it might be much less).

    But, in Accelerator Club you still get direct 1-1 with Laura because all of our monthly live events are small group so you receive the deep and personalized attention, strategies, and solutions for YOUR unique issue.

    Even if you just listen to the recordings or attend just once a year you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank on this cost vs. ROI model.

    The Power of a Think Tank to 10x Your Knowledge:

    What’s better than the wisdom of one coach?

    50+ coaches!

    That’s about what you get in the Accelerator Club because you’re not just tapping into Laura’s expertise but those of your fellow members.

    For every coaching/consulting question we also open it up to attendees and then there’s the follow up opportunity in the private Facebook community to keep the discussion going and solutions flowing.

    Access to the #2 Way Your Peers Are Growing Their Businesses:

    Every single month we weave into our live 2-hour session an intentional thought-provoking networking activity.

    It’s always centered on the training topic you’ve requested or current industry issues.

    What makes it extra special is that it helps you connect to the topic AND it gives you the chance to network 1-1 with a colleague.

    This is where magic happens!

    We’ve seen partnerships, referrals, book co-authorship, and subcontracting relationships come out of these micro-networking sessions.

    You can often stop the frenzied marketing by slowing down and connecting with your peers.

    Monthly Custom Training You Need Now:

    It’s always centered on the training topic you’ve requested or current industry issues.

    What makes it extra special is that it helps you connect to the topic AND it gives you the chance to network 1-1 with a colleague.

    You can often stop the frenzied marketing by slowing down and connecting with your peers.

    Plus, it’s never a boring lecture-based meeting. Our Club meetings are ranked 10/10 by survey participants every single month!

    Learn On Your Time & At Your Command:

    Attending live won’t always make sense and that’s why all the pieces work so well together.

    Prefer to watch the video? You have access to the recording.

    Wish you had an audio to download, keep, and access wherever and whenever? You get one.

    Have a question outside of a live session? Ask it in the group.

    Want to learn about a particular subject but can’t attend live? Request it for a future/next training topic.

    We’ve got you!

    Support All Month Long, Not Just in Live Events:

    But it’s not just one day a month for two hours.

    If you’re tapping into the private Facebook community then you know you have access to your think tank and to Laura whenever you need it.



    Direct Path to All the Best Resources:

    One unique value-add to the Accelerator Club is that after each session Laura shares links to every one of the comprehensive resources in your CDI member section so that you can lean into whatever you need for more step-by-step follow up.

    From best practice tip sheets, consultation scripts and contracts to done-for-you job seeker handouts, you’ll be able to get where you want to go 10X faster with this convenience.

    Savings on 1-1 Consulting:

    Should you decide you want 1-1 coaching and consulting, as a Club member you’ll have access to the Career Business Profit Rocket program (as space is available) at 20% off.
