Escape Your Job, Live Your Passion, and Increase Your Income
Did you know statistically you only have 7 seconds to make a good first impression?
On average, 118 people apply for a single job (Forbes).
By the time you get to the interview, the employer already thinks you're qualified.
The point of the interview is to assess fit and help the employer verify what you shared in your resume and cover letter.
Did you know that 39% of the candidates leave a bad impression due to their overall confidence level, voice quality, or lack of a smile? (Jobspin)
Imagine how much better your job prospects would be if you knew strategies that helped you make the absolutely BEST out of your interview?
There are many things about interviewing you can not control and there are many things you can.
This mini workshop is about empowering you to take action on those things within your scope of control so you can get the job offer you want.
Understand that the more confident you are, the better.
Understand the process before, during, and after interviewing so you can be prepared for success and the joy of a job well done.
Are you ready for positive job interview experiences and and outstanding outcomes?
You already know you DESERVE a raise. If you’ve been offered a job, you know you deserve more than they are offering you. The hard part is convincing them to give you what deserve. Or is it? Is this *really* the hard part?
Did you know those who chose to negotiate salary, rather than accept the offer on the table increase their starting pay by an average of $5,000? Well, it's true! This is what Michelle Marks of George Mason University and Crystal Harold of Temple University found in a study published in the Journal of Organizational Behavior.
Imagine how much more you can increase your salary if you don’t just choose to negotiate, but you spend 90 minutes with me learning specialized knowledge on exactly HOW to negotiate your salary effectively.
Do you think you could add a couple thousand or even double that average by actually knowing what you’re doing?
Imagine what your life would look like with an extra $5k, $10k, or $15k a year. You can pay off debt, go on vacation, help you family, or simply give yourself the security of an emergency fund.
Understand that what you make now can affect you later.
Understand salary negotiation so you can get rid of the anxiety and have a positive discussion and outstanding outcome.

I've been there....When I think back to the first full-time job I had after college... I cringe. It was the first and only time I was ever let go from a job. I didn't make it past my 90 day review. I knew it was coming. I couldn't wait (I was SO ready to leave!) but I went about it all the wrong way. Hard lesson to learn! I vowed to take charge of my career and never be a passive bystander again.
Since this experience, I've helped numerous people who have been marginalized, told to "wait their turn", or otherwise kept from their goals to find joy and financial freedom through optimizing their resume. #LoveCareerFreedom is about choosing to love ourselves enough to prioritize career self-care. Life is too short to be stressed and a mess! I have been honing my strategies, techniques, and methods for years and have put them into this program just for you.
I repeatedly invested in myself, found mentors, learned how to create multiple streams of income. It wasn't easy and I'm glad I reached out for help by hiring my own coaches and being a continuous learner. Now, I'm living my dream career path. I have my dream role as Director of Human Resources at an organization that aligns with my values in which I'm passionate about! I have the flexibility to continue my private practice as a career and HR consultant and as a lay community minister.
I living my best career life in a beautiful way that brings freedom. Not only that, but I've taken great joy in helping others do the same.
Creating an empowering lifestyle was especially important since I watched my own parents work until their health gave out and they couldn't work any longer. They never had the opportunity to officially "retire". I learned from their experience.
They also taught me many lessons that led to my success, that I'll be sharing with you. There's always much to learn from both successes and when we miss the mark.
I can't wait to help you optimize your resume and share with you the very best of what I know works based on my 18 years of career consulting and human resources work.
Sign up for my program and feel awesome about starting your new path. I'm here for you.

If you're interested in my #LoveCareerFreedom program, you will LOVE my FREE MASTERCLASS.
It was excellent! I thought it was so awesome. It opened up opportunity for discussion and for us to learn. I just want to say to everyone, even if it’s on a corporate level to take the information that Ebony has to offer. I think she’ll go a long way in teaching people how to market themselves properly and get what they ask for as it related to their salary or income.

Ebony is one of the most talented people I’ve ever met to help you get to the core of what your message is. Whether you’re a creative type or a federal employer (which is her background) or the average person on the street who wants more career satisfaction, more career happiness, and who wants to really understand what to do with your life and how to make your life work in terms of your career…she wants you to have a high quality of life at your work, whatever it is. If you’re employed, if you’re an employee anywhere – you need this woman! You need Ebony. Get to her seminar or workshop, don’t wait. You’re silly if you wait. She’s giving you a lot of value, she’s generous and I guarantee you at the end of the day – you will never take her money back guarantee. You’ll say “I wish I came more!” And you’ll probably refer a lot of your friends. You will get more value than you even know.

I know I’m a pretty screwed up guy which makes the voice of reason you have so invaluable… Anyone in need of counseling about their career path or who is at a crossroads there would be a fool not to sit with you and listen to your suggestions. Thanks again!
