Before coming to Work Bigger, I was plagued with workism, perfectionism, guilt, confusion, disconnect, and hopelessness, especially when it came to my career. I never kept a job longer than 2 years because I was always on the fast-track to burnout. My intention was to find a career path that would give me clarity, peace, hope, and energy. I always centered myself around my career, and I was looking for a strong shove to break that cycle and uncover more of my identity than my job.

After joining Work Bigger, I went from professional disconnect and disappointment to professional hope, reassurance, and intention. I was always searching for goals and results whereas now I enjoy the present and the journey. I would try to meet every single external expectation or obligation and now I’m deeply curious about what’s truly best for me. I felt so detached and lost, but WB has supported me in coming back to myself professionally. I have been able to find a job that better aligns with my values (including work-life balance), and while my job is important to who I am, it does not define me and it is not my sole purpose in life.

There’s no one formula for doing self work. Listening to videos and completing worksheets won’t bring about real change. You need to get ready to face your own bad habits, deeply-held values, and ingrained beliefs – and then ask: Are these serving me? The Work Bigger community allows you to do that in a safe and supportive space, where everyone is trying to dig themselves out of workaholic holes, negativity spirals, and guilt baths. Being a part of such an incredible group of people makes it easy to fail and try again when trying to put the pieces together to find your purpose.

Before finding Work Bigger, I was burnt out, downtrodden, and desperate for change. After private coaching with Belma (and the amazing Work Bigger Community events), I’ve made several important changes in my life: I’ve unearthed my personal mission which will be a guiding light for my future, I’ve found the next step in my professional career that better aligns with my values and strengths, and I’ve strengthened the vision and impact of my creative business!

Six months ago, I didn’t think I would be able to have the levels of joy, satisfaction, security, and confidence that I have developed through my work with Belma. I feel like I have leveled up in a significant way.

I highly recommend Work Bigger to anyone who is searching for more personal meaning in the way they move through life.

Despite many career successes, I found myself feeling stuck and scared about taking the plunge into my next, new endeavor. Belma helped me get very clear about my values and priorities, lay out my options, face my fears and take bold steps towards my dream.

Most importantly, she helped me integrate all of my past strengths into my new endeavor. We as women often don’t value our strengths, and Belma has helped me embrace and carry them through.

She is patient, organized, thoughtful and wise. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to work with her.

Working with Belma on an individual basis has helped me get out of a career and personal rut, so I can make real progress on my goals. She’s helped me uncover and address triggers that have blocked my growth and development as a leader. Together, we’ve really honed in on my personal mission and identified clear next steps for me to achieve fulfillment in my career. I’ve always known that I was capable of doing more than just a desk job, I just needed Belma to help me uncover my true potential.

Working with Belma has been life changing. Over my career, I have had amazing jobs and learned so much, but there always seemed to be something missing that I couldn’t put my finger on. Self-growth and learning is something that I love and am constantly doing but it’s always been something I did on the side along with many other things. This is really the first time I dedicated 150% to myself by making my coaching a priority and putting in the work. The results have been unbelievable. I wasn’t sure what was going to happen but I let go and trusted that it would work. And it did! I have figured out my mission in life and everything has been unfolding in front of me. I have always admired people who start incredible businesses or have amazing ideas, but always wondered how they figured it out. And now I know!

Before joining Work Bigger, I struggled with clarity of purpose….I desperately wanted to know my purpose but truthfully did not give myself the permission to consider what my purpose/dreams would look like for fear that it would come at a cost to my children. I also did not take the time to quiet my soul and focus my energy to discern what that purpose is.

My decision to join Work Bigger gave me the space to focus on myself, my goals, my dreams and ultimately discover my mission. I was able to articulate specifically what my struggles were with my current job, and I was able to realize that living out my mission in my career was a reasonable and achievable desire.

I’m now able to articulate my core values, strengths and my mission. I can see the alignment between all three and now know what I need in order to be happy in my profession. I also now have more direction on the type of career I want to have that will fulfill my core values and my purpose.

If you’re thinking about joining Work Bigger, take the leap. It is an investment in yourself and your future. It will require hard work on your part, perhaps to be more vulnerable and introspective than you are used to but if you commit to the process you will so appreciate the end results!

I was feeling restless, frustrated and a little stalled out.  Many talk of a 5 year plan and I wasn’t even feeling like I had a handle on a 5 month plan, let alone the mindset necessary to set those career goals.   I was looking for coaching on how to think about my current career circumstance, as well as how to proceed in terms of “what’s next.”

Work Bigger sessions facilitated a shift in mindset for me.  In addition to doing the work to really articulate an introspective mission statement, I learned new (life) skills and essentially reframed my career circumstance.

Work Bigger drove a shift for which I am grateful: a possibility mindset.  Work Bigger sessions created space for me to remove assumptions, shift my perceptions and be actively part of my own change.   This change sounds subtle, but the work is challenging and is meant to be a life approach, rather than a quick fix to land a new gig.

My advice to those considering Work Bigger is to remove assumptions, be clear on why you are considering it and understand that just like saving for retirement, it’s an investment in yourself.  Work Bigger does not provide the answers, but rather gives you the training wheels so you may ultimately ride that bike yourself.

I was fortunate to work with Belma in 1:1 coaching sessions while in a job transition before joining the Work Bigger group coaching membership. Through our coaching, Belma helped me identify behaviors and mindsets that were holding me back professionally. She taught me how to look those tendencies head on and make resolutions.

Over a year later, I’m still using many of the positive habits and approaches I learned from Belma. I would highly recommend getting to know and working with Belma – she is an incredible person.

Working with Belma has dramatically improved my self confidence to achieve goals I thought were once out of reach.

Now I’m onto bigger goals and have all the faith to back myself up – thanks to Work Bigger!

Before I joined Work Bigger, I’d felt stuck in my career and my specific job for about 3 years.  I wanted work to be more meaningful and impactful for me, but I always stopped short of exploring any next steps because I assumed whatever I did next would mean taking a massive pay cut. 

After I joined Work Bigger, I realized I wasn’t alone in my search for work that’s impactful.  I started understanding that working on my mindset was crucial – understanding my imposter syndrome; realizing I may not have to take as massive a pay cut as I thought; knowing I’m never stuck because I can always generate a lot of great ideas to try.  I just actually had to try them now… which I’ve started doing.

Spending time focusing on understanding my strengths and values proved to be an invaluable experience for me, and Belma guided me every step of the way.

Now my mindset has shifted to a place of abundance and possibility.  I know that I’m not stuck in my current job – that there is something out there next for me, and I’m actively taking steps to get there.

If you’re considering joining Work Bigger, just do it.  It’s so worth it.  I thought I had to go to business school to figure out what I wanted to do, but I just needed to work with Belma.

Before Work Bigger I lacked a sense of clarity over my career. I wanted to define my purpose, interests, values, and strengths in order to create a solid foundation for myself and to better understand how these could be useful tools to shape my life and career.

After joining, I was able to better define what my needs are when it comes to a job to be truly fulfilled. I found clarity around my next steps and feel more confident as I move onto the next chapter of my career.

If you’re considering joining, go for it! It’s best to trust the process and see where it leads you. Belma is a kind and wonderful coach who will encourage you while challenging you in the best way.
