I help misfits find their place in the world.

I'm Carol Ross. Career coach, writer, and speaker.

Have you had enough of conforming--sacrificing bits and pieces of who you are to fit in?

Are you yearning for wholeness and integration?

Are you ready to *finally* shine, rather than apologize for being an outlier?

If so, I can help you:

  • Find your sweet spot, where life and work come together
  • Go beyond making a career change, to creating career integration
  • Make meaning of the twists and turns of your career (and life)
  • Bring into exquisite clarity what your next chapter looks like

    Intrigued? You've come to the right place. Read on.

  • Let Your Flag Fly High

    I was an outsider all of my life until one day...I stopped trying to fit in.
