    Take Tribe on a Test Drive

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

    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 Tribe such an energizing vibe!

    What Tribers are Saying

    (portrait) Tim Windhof

    Laura's work through and commitment to Career Directors International is a truly powerful resource for high-level career industry professionals.

    If you are a resume writer or career coach intending to provide the best possible service to your clients, joining CDI's "Fly Higher Tribe" is pretty much a "must."

    In fact, Laura produces so many resources and training opportunities that is hard to take advantage of everything offered.

    I genuinely feel the Tribe lays out an entire road-map/blueprint to having a successful resume writing business - and I enjoy how you keep stressing the value of following and implementing what is recommended.

    The LinkedIn strategies suggested by you and other tribe members have added at least 2 sales a month to my business – a value of $3600+/month.

    Heed the wise words of our superhero goddess, Laura. She suggested I bundle my services to boost deal size in a Tribe call. It has totally worked. Actually, I haven't bundled yet, but I added a recommendation engine to the checkout process and I'm surprised to see just how many clients (80%) are ordering Cover Letters, LinkedIn Profiles, and Resume Distribution. I guess the whole 'you want fries with that?' thing works.

    And Just Who Am I to Lead This Tribe?

    DeCarlo_Laura_headshot_2016 copyHi, I’m Laura DeCarlo, President of Career Directors International, multi-certified business success coach, award-winning resume writer and placement director, author of four books including Resumes for Dummies, and multi-certified professional.

    I am currently a Certified Customer Acquisition Specialist, Certified Content Marketing Specialist, Money Breakthrough Method® Coach, Infinite Possibilities Certified Trainer, 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, and business with ongoing training in areas of copywriting, conversion funnels, email marketing, community marketing, SEO, social media marketing, video marketing, curriculum development, and more.

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

    We've had members listen in on one hot seat coaching and use the knowledge to launch a $3600/mo added revenue stream.

    We've saved members from chargebacks giving them language to successfully turn problems into opportunities.

    We've helped members break out of grueling 14+ hour days to shorten their workweek while successfully introducing new pricing and packaging that immediately led to $13,000 and $20,000 revenue weeks.

    We've assisted new career practitioners to avoid the pitfalls and slowdowns to success by pointing them to best practices.

    We've created friendships, partnerships, accountability, and fun through our engagements.

    And so much more!

    So, Tribe IS what you need to take big steps forward! 

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

    The Fly Higher Tribe Add-On Membership Tier Lets You:

    • You’ll get solutions to your problems:

      Once a month you will be invited to join a group Zoom meeting where you get to ask anything of Laura (and hear from your colleagues as well). This is where hot seat coaching comes in. It could take the form of actually coaching you to have a breakthrough or it could be sharing specific strategy for taking powerful next steps. Laura may also direct you to additional resources in the member’s section.

    • You’ll 10x your knowledge:

      Through the monthly Zoom meeting you’ll hear all kinds of topics and their solutions/strategies thanks to the group environment. This is coaching typically reserved for Laura's private 1-1 client sessions.

    • You’ll learn on your time:

      Can’t make the Zoom meeting? You’ll have access to a private member page where you can get the recordings -- video, audio, and MP3 audio download. Coming December 2022 - chapters in videos to quickly navigate to the topic you need! Laura also shares targeted CDI resources after every event in the private member group so you can go deep with best practices, scripts, templates, and lessons. 

    • You’ll network and build deep connections:

      Tribe is unlike anything you've experienced -- even live conferences don't connect colleagues the way attending a live Tribe event does. You have to experience it to get it. You’ll also be connected through a private Facebook group where you can collaborate with fellow Tribe members. 

    • You’ll save:

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

    • Member_Badge_1

      You'll show your prospects you fly higher:

      By displaying the member badge on print or digital media, you can demonstrate your commitment to continuous learning.

    More Client Success Stories


    Kimberly Robb Baker, Movin' On Up Resumes

    I raised my prices by double-digits last year with your help, and the world should know that!

    When my executive resume writing and coaching business began breaking sales record after sales record, I needed help. I was elated. BUT, I’d never “played this big” before.

    Laura gave me the tactical and mindset tools I needed to step up to the next level, build a team to support me, deal with ensuing revenue ebbs and flows, make time for key projects, and keep my sanity. She also gave me the insight to realign my packages with services I'm excited to offer while guiding me toward even greater revenue and profit margins (I was able to raise my prices 30%+ and set the stage for more growth down the road).

    Laura is a true business expert and has the high EQ to zero in on exactly what you need most. She brings order to chaos, growth to stagnation, and renewed joy to entrepreneurs who need a new infusion of energy and strategy.



    Mary Elizabeth Bradford, MaryElizabethBradford.com

    I JUST sold another VIP package. So – you helped me increase my prices by 1/3 and for other packages 100% respectively.

    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.

    I tried your 97% close rate script and it was like some kind of magic. I went into the spiel with the prospect, “3 different audiences, keywords, etc”.

    I described my packages (which thanks to you are now delineated and a choice between “Yes” and “Yes” instead of between “Yes” and some other writer) and pitched them $300 higher than previously. He acted like he couldn’t get out his credit card fast enough; like he was afraid I would go away.

    He tried to give me his credit card while driving! In the past they used to tell me they were driving as a way to get off the phone. But, by using your tried-and-true method, driving was not an object, it’s like I was giving away gold.


    Well, another amazing event! I had a consult call with a client early in their career using your magic spiel. I quoted and sold him my “Deluxe” package for double the price I would have charged someone at his level before.

    I sold him the $1165 “Deluxe” package that includes LinkedIn…this is double the price I would have charged someone at his level before! He told me he was honored to work with me.

    This all means that now I can make the sale, at double the price, and the privilege is theirs!
