Jack Chapman and Steve Frederick…both men are in the upper ranks of America’s most respected executive career coaches.  — Joyce Lain Kennedy, career Author, syndicated career columnist

We’re passionate about career development and making sure people are well paid.

When we asked clients what they most appreciated about us, they said it was the insight, the 1-on-1 attention–and RESULTS.

One said, “I couldn’t believe that you spent so much time to make sure my resume and LinkedIn profiles were just right.” Good thing, because an employer noticed his LinkedIn profile and decided he was exactly the person needed for the job. Here’s a little about us:
