Business Success Programs

for Resume Writers and Career Coaches

Turn your passion into profits.

You could have a dozen certifications or be 20 years into the resume writing and/or career coaching industry. But, if you don't know how to build a business, sell, market, package, or profit, chances are you are struggling.


What makes CDI different from any other membership group, training center, industry consultancy, or professional association for resume writers and career coaches is our deep focus on industry start-ups, business building, business turnarounds, and business optimization. We teach established professionals and newbies how to get started and how to stay on top.

In fact, we are proud to say that our business consulting clients (career and resume professionals) are successfully reaching 7-figure sales. 

While 7-figures may seem impossible, use it as a benchmark to understand that 6-figure success IS ABSOLUTELY POSSIBLE as a career industry professional. You just need the guidance, strategy, and the time lag of trying to reinvent the wheel when success is already available.

CDI membership offers many channels to be successful, but there are also a few programs that can catapult you there:

From time to time CDI retires a course. This may be due to market changes or this introduction of a more current replacement program.

There are no plans to reintroduce the following programs. This section exists solely to verify the existence of these courses to any CDI member who may have previously purchased them. You can still access your purchases by going to My Courses on your member dashboard.
