About Joseph

My passion is for helping people gain the clarity, confidence and courage to relaunch their careers.  After dropping out of medical school to figure out what I really wanted to do with my life, I eventually pursued a career in business, later getting my MBA, and spending the next 10 years working in brand management at both blue-chip & small startup companies in the US & UK.

Over time though, being embedded in the corporate world as a Brand Manager marketing cleaning products and desserts became rather uninspiring and mundane, so in 2013, I left my desk-job behind to found my own career consultancy. Making the leap from my steady day job into the world of self-employment was one of the scariest career moves I’ve ever made. But I’m so glad I did it because every single day I feel energized, engaged, and excited to share my message and insights with others who aspire to make their own changes.

I’ve always struggled with what to call myself, but I’m a mix of a Career Strategist, Personal Branding Consultant, Speaker, and Internationally Certified Coach. I basically take the principles used to build & relaunch brands to now help career-changers and aspiring business owners build & relaunch their personal brands.

If you want more of the official (kinda corporate) bio

My work is informed by 400+ hours of professional coaching and 10 years of global marketing experience in the US & UK managing brands including Glad, Liquid-Plumr, Gü Puds, and Häagen-Dazs. As a Personal Branding Strategist, Career Coach, Speaker, and Internationally Certified Coach, I’ve taken the principles used to build & relaunch international brands to help over 1,000 career-changers and aspiring business owners build & relaunch their personal brands. You can learn more about my individual, educational, and corporate clients.

I’ve been a featured speaker at events including TEDx and MarketingWeek Live. I was awarded my Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential from the International Coach Federation, MBA from the University of Michigan, Ross School of Business, and Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from Northwestern University.
