Kristena’s Journey: How She Landed Her Dream Position & A Major Pay Increase By Reclaiming Her Worth & Value

Ep: 102

Is your current career situation lighting you up? If not, that kind of fulfillment might seem completely out of reach. It isn’t, though, and the steps to get there might not be as far as you think.

At the start of her journey, Kristena’s spark had gone out completely, and small shifts in her career weren’t helping as much as she’d hoped. Now, she’s back in control and headed in a positive, prosperous and confident direction in the knowledge of her value and what she brings to the table.

On this episode of The Bridge to Fulfillment, Blake and Kristena discuss the process of navigating the uncomfortable parts of a career change when you’ve been incredibly successful previously, the positive changes that manifested in every aspect of Kristena’s life throughout her process, and the switch that flips the moment you decide what you’re willing to put up with – and what you aren’t. Listen in for an episode that will help you get under the surface of what’s going on in your career and figure out your best path forward.


What You’ll Learn:

  • What the first step towards regaining control over your career looks like, why it’s important, and how Blake teaches it differently
  • How Kristena began to slowly improve in her ability to articulate her skills and value in multiple settings
  • Why the financial side of a career change can be one of the best validating factors as you progress through your journey
  • And much more!

Favorite Quote:

“That whole first step of gaining control is 100% critical to the process. And then from there, you start to feel differently about yourself, you start to feel more empowered, you start to recognize that, wow, you do have value and worth where you previously maybe weren’t thinking that and then from there I could start to map out, you know, gaining clarity on what my next opportunity needs to look like – you know, defining it.” —Kristena
