Emily C. embodies all of the exceptional qualities that have distinguished the group of young 30-somethings I was blessed to work with in 2012. She is extremely intelligent, articulate, with a proven track record of success behind her. What sets her apart from many young people today is her total commitment to achieving her goals. She never doubted she would be successful. But let Emily speak for herself.
When I started working with Neal, I knew I was ready for a career change but I wasn’t sure exactly what kind of new career I wanted to pursue. The exercises Neal suggested helped me clarify my aims and our weekly meetings kept me focused. Once I’d identified my ideal job, I still had to get it! By doing a little bit every day and by finding ways to talk to people instead of working only through email, I made consistent progress. Eventually, diligent follow-up led to an interview, which led to another interview, which led to the job!
