Astrid is one of the most inspiring people I know, having been incredibly successful in both her first career as a lawyer and her family life, while maintaining one of the most upbeat, optimistic, and forward-thinking personalities out there.

"The [Energy Leadership] assessment broke down my life clearly into seven energy levels, and it was shocking to see how much negative energy level was present. Being an extremely visual person, it was the reality check that I needed. The assessment gave me a foundation on which to base my future action plan in terms of solving issues. While everyone has positive and negative energy in their lives, it is really helpful to know what percentages they are, and how they are also subcategorized, and how these tie in with each other."

There seem to be an infinite number of resources available to people looking to make career changes these days, and I think I looked into most of them before I met Astrid. Numerous books advised me to do what I loved. That sounded good, except that I didn’t know what I loved. A career test provided some insight and long lists of possibly compatible jobs, but ultimately directed me to do what I loved - back to square one. Another career coach, dispensing with frivolities like love, laid out a practical approach to a career path that objectively made some sense, but I knew in my heart that I would hate it. I felt deficient for not knowing what I loved, unreasonable for rejecting a sensible path that didn’t appeal, and in general, completely hopeless about my situation.
