My mission is to help you go from where you are today to where you want to be!
I will start to tell you my story with the exact same words that I start my chapter in the best-selling book «The Recipe For Success», which I am co-authoring with Mr. Jack Canfield (my hero):
«...I want to tell you a story, a story about a brown-eyed girl who just turned 16. A girl that is about to go for her big dream: moving abroad for one year, to the land of freedom and opportunities.
One year away from little Norway, to experience the life in the southern part of the US, has been her dream for years. She has studied English, and she has prepared for living away from her family for the next 11 months. She has become best friends with her host family who are so nice and who lets her live with them as a daughter and sister through this school year.
The day before she leaves her hometown and says goodbye to everyone, to start her adventure in a foreign country, she feels that something is not right. A few hours later, her world is turned upside down. She is not critically sick, she is not about to die, even if she feels that her world is suddenly falling apart. She is pregnant…»
To make a long story short: Kristine was a blessing in disguise. I continued my education, while enjoying being Kristine's mother.
I trained myself in my very own «even-if method», wich helped me go from where I was to where I wanted to be. It's 90 % mindset, right?
Today I help other people who want to have a change in their life, and a change in their career. I myself am a living example of a «Career Transformator» and someone who came back to life after having suffered from PTSD.
From HR Manager to a fire fighter, and later a fire chief, is quite a transformation! But I did what I desired – and learned so much along the way! – about myself and about the «Do´s and Don'ts».
In January 2017, I quit my job as a fire chief to start out as an entrepreneur. Again: a huge transformation.
I founded Create Your Dream Career® and the Norwegian consultant company Einang Safety Consult AS.
With «Create Your Dream Career» I help women build their dream career, so that they can live the life they deserve & desire. I love to see how they get the joy back into their lives!
Joy and happiness are very important to me. You see, I have had my ups and downs. In 2015 I got diagnosed with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). I ended up not seeing anything positive with my life at all. I didn't want to be here on this beautiful earth anymore. I was so sick that I couldn't see the joy in my two kids, my «partner in crime», in the rest of my family, or in my friends.
One day I was sitting in my bed thinking that I had to help others who experience what I now experienced. That what I had been through hadn't been in vain...
Fast forward to today:
Now I get to help those who are where I once was. Those who are stressed out and in despair. Those who don't know what to do, or where to start.
I help them go from where they are today to where they want to be.
And, when your job is such a huge part of your life, it's important to have a career that gives you joy and fulfillment.
You are on this earth for a short amount of time. You deserve to enjoy it while you're around! I'm here to guide you on your journey towards the life you want to live.
«I love this quote you see on the picture above...
Unfortunately this is so true.
I'm a living example of this... I had to go all the way down – feeling the pain (big time) before changing my path.
This picture is of me «back then». The day this photograph was taken I was down. Really down. I got a call from a photographer who wanted to take some pictures of me as a female fire chief. Inside I had a storm going on. Do you see the pain in my face? When I look at the picture now – I do.
I was trying to stand out, trying to fit in with the standards I had set up for my career and my life. Ending up with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), just looking for ways to finish my journey here on this planet...
I loved my job, I had already changed my career once. But then I didn't have good days at my work as a Fire Chief – so instead of breaking out I stood in the game. It almost cost me my family and at last – my life.
It was then I woke up, knowing that I had to make a transformation – I had to make the leap. I quit my job. Everyone thought I was crazy quitting a decent job as a Fire Chief for over 80 men. But I had to. I had to survive. I had to start living the life I once desired.
Long story short: I Started out as a CEO of my own company in January 2017, working with leaders who needed guiding, with fire preventing and HSE. I did a VERY good 6 figure first year – Thank God!
Then I started thinking about other women who were feeling the same as I did back then. Hopefully they hadn't reached the bottom like I did...
Through my job, I got acquainted with other women who wanted to have a career that matched THEIR desire – their own dream career. It made me feel good helping them out. And then BOOM – I became a Career Transformation Coach! And I love it! I love – love – love it!!!
So... The meaning of this text is that IT'S NEVER TOO LATE – but sometimes we have to feel the pain before we dare to make the leap. A leap that could help get us straight to our life's desire – aka our Dream Career.»
I am guiding you who want to change your career, but don't know how to make the leap.
Women who want to transform their career have a lot of questions, a lot of fears – and often they don't know WHAT it is their new career path really is. Maybe you are one of those women?
By asking the right questions and lovingly guide you towards your desire in life – I will «hold your hand» and help you make the leap.
Wouldn't it be great to have a career that matches your desire and your values in life, aka YOUR DREAM CAREER? You can have it! It's right there waiting for you around the next corner...
