Abby the artist

Abby always knew she loved art but started her career in corporate America.  After several layoffs, she established her own business doing murals for residential and commercial properties.  She had to step back to move forward, but with a few key people and belief in herself, she became well known and successful.



How about Bart
Bart is an introvert with an insane ability to prepare for the worst.  Although he sees black clouds looming, his practical attitude takes charge of the situation to move his career forward.  Despite a daughter with cancer, many layoffs and career challenges, he acquired his MBA and convinced employers to give him a chance.



Tom needs Testing
Tom flew airplanes all his life, but soon after he took a retirement package, his checks suddenly stopped arriving.  People around him gave him advice and support to move into a new career, but he needed a structured program to assist him to the next phase in his career to earn more than a paycheck.
