The FREE Career Mastery™ Challenge gets you off to a great start in the new year and sets you up for your best year yet.

Over 5 days, we’ll create your personal Career Success Roadmap to give you the clarity and confidence to thrive at work, even in a downturn when things are uncertain and changing.

With so many competing demands on your time, energy and attention, the best way to ensure outstanding success is to have a clear plan and strategy.

Your roadmap will guide your decisions and actions so you can perform at your best every day and stay on track throughout the year to achieve your goals and aspirations.

This 5-day Challenge is perfect for high-achieving corporate professionals who want to take charge of their career, bring their best selves to work, perform at their full potential and keep advancing.

Here’s what you’ll discover each day of the
FREE 5-Day Career Mastery™ Challenge

Each day during the Challenge, you'll get a short 10-20 minute video training and a simple 5-10 minute assignment to create your Career Success Roadmap. In less than 30 minutes a day, you will have your personal plan by the end of this Challenge to set you up for success.

The daily sessions will be available on-demand for a limited time after they are released, so you can catch up on any you miss.

Plus, engage with May Busch, the Challenge host, as well as fellow Challengers inside the private community to get feedback and advice, share breakthroughs, and get energized and inspired!
