This is Ian, founder of the Bold Career Project and I am putting to work my 20+ years of supporting managers, executives, self-employed professionals, MBAs and other leaders in building a tool kit to support your professional journey.
In an increasingly complex and competitive professional landscape where the rules are changing and traditional routes to career progression are less obvious, my mission is to help successful professionals better navigate their professional journey. And that means understanding your unique gifts and how to use them, closing the "marketing gap" between your offering and the marketplace, and helping you design your direction and a platform to keep the business of "you" moving forward.

My 20+ year background is in serving executives, senior managers, managers, other senior professionals and leaders, MBAs and the upwardly mobile. The common thread is a recognition that drifting / hoping / and settling aren't valid career strategies.
