“Hesitation is the kiss of death. You might hesitate for a just nanosecond, but that’s all it takes. That one small hesitation triggers a mental system that’s designed to stop you. And it happens in less than—you guessed it—five seconds.” ― Mel Robbins, The 5 Second Rule: Transform Your Life, Work, and Confidence with Everyday Courage

Career Change Checklist
With thousands of rising seniors applying to college this fall, it is hard not to wonder, how am I going to stand out among them? CPL Coaching has the answer: The Essay.
The college essay is an opportunity for you to show, not just tell, who you really are. It gives the admissions committee a true insight to your potential as a student and how your background will help diversify and enhance the institution’s student body. While it can feel overwhelming trying to find the “perfect” story to tell, or to figure out how to get your general amazingness to translate to paper, it is something that partnering with a career coach can help you do with ease.
We have worked with high school and college counselors and have the inside track to know what kind of essays will grab the admission counselor’s eye. We want to help you find the voice that is completely unique for sharing your story. We will listen to your experiences and help you pick that moment in time or piece of wisdom that will add the most value to your application.
We can also lessen the burden of the college application process in general, using our cheat sheet or month-by-month check list, which will free up more of your time to find the inspiration to write. Our college planning tools go further than that and can help you get through the entire process - start to finish. Our expert knowledge of the university system in Virginia and beyond will ensure that you find the schools that best match your strengths and needs.
We want you to have time to show off your accomplishments so far - Let us help you find the perfect story to make your college essays shine!
Did you know that if you type that phrase “I Need a New…” into Google the first two suggestions are “job” and “career”? Did either of those words pop into your head when you read the incomplete sentence? If so, do you know if your lack of fulfillment at work is because you need a new job or that you actually need a complete change in career? Are you wondering if it even possible to change fields??
Here at CPL Coaching, we can help you answer those questions. Our individual career coaches, Wendy Thompson and Kyle Laver, pride themselves on the ability to listen and understand a client’s situation and have the tools to help you get the clarity you need to make big decisions. It might feel overwhelming to begin your new career or job search while holding your current position, but we can make it easier for you. In fact, starting the process while you have a job is important because it might just give you that boost of energy and create the element of something new and exciting, allowing you to commit to the start of a career change. If you use our services, we can keep you focused on your overall goal and hold you accountable for getting out of the slump and into a career that gives you life!
Don’t wait until you are completely burned out, let Wendy or Kyle help you complete the sentence “I need a new….” today!
It is no secret that the summer months can cause a major slow down in the workplace. Productivity is halted by vacations, more flexible schedules with children being out of school, and wandering minds thinking it’s 5 o’clock somewhere instead of a 5 o’clock deadline. As a business leader, it is important to help your employees stay motivated so that while they are counting down the days until their week off, they are also able to stay focused and productive at work.
A perfect way to do this is to take a break from the daily grind for a special CPL Coaching presentation. We love sharing the expertise and experience of years of working with individuals and businesses. Whether it is a one hour presentation or a full day workshop, CPL Coaching offers a number of topics that can address what is going on in your business or group.
Some topics include:
These presentations allow both employee and employer the opportunity to understand their work life in a different way and learn how to use their best skills to work most efficiently. Additionally, if there is a not a topic above that you think is best for getting your employees invigorated for work, we can create a unique presentation tailored for your environment.

Over the past few weeks we have blogged a lot about how we assist individuals looking for more satisfaction in their careers and businesses who might need an objective eye to look at their systems, but another huge passion of ours is helping high schoolers and their families navigate the murky waters of college application.
While students might have school counselors to keep them on track, our personalized services for juniors and seniors go beyond that brief visit to the school office. We offer coaching for resumes and essays, have tools to find the right schools to meet a student’s personality and needs, and take the stress off of the students and their parents to make sure they meet deadlines and know of all available scholarship and financial aid opportunities. We offer a more devoted and focused attention on the individual than the school’s resources can, which ensures all of your student’s university goals are being assessed properly.
Use this cheat sheet below (or check out our full month-by-month checklist) and let us know where we can help you lay the foundation for a successful college career. Summer is the ideal time to get a head start: Contact us today to set up a session!
