We know you aren’t looking to be sold- you don’t need to be because you already know that you are:  


  •  at a career crossroads and unsure of your next step ..........
  •  suffering job burnout and its impact on your health and happiness.....
  •  feeling stuck in a soul-sucking job that isn’t you......
  •  lacking fulfilment in your career and work-life..... 
  •  wanting a career change but need some direction and guidance to make the transition from point 'A' to point 'B'....
  •  ready to make a bold career move without compromising your financial security of lifestyle....  

Grace + Solonia here and, believe it or not, we’ve been in your shoes. We both have generous resumes with ample amounts of experience and could’ve been on the one-way street to corporate boredom. BUT we wanted passion + purpose AND we believe you do too. So, if you can handle two ladies who will be brutally honest with you about this career change adventure and help you create your dream work/life in the process… then welcome to this 5 Week course.  

"The best part was the most difficult - the work! I really love the content because I enjoy going deep. Great job guys! I read a lot and had come across some of it, but having it distilled into modules, and being held accountable beyond being a passive consumer was awesome." - Adeline Teo

WE KNOW WHY YOU ARE HERE:


You are EXHAUSTED by your current corporate life and want to make a career + lifestyle shift without putting your livelihood (and sanity) at risk.  

The thought (or attempt) of a career change makes you want to hide under the covers and crawl back into your cubicle and pretend that passion + purpose aren’t calling your name.  

IF you don't fit these things, this course is NOT for you (and we are okay with that!) 

  • You feel undervalued, underchallenged or uninspired in your current role.  
  • You’ve recently left a job and the pressure is ON to figure out your next step.  
  • You’re on the fence: Am I doing what is right for me, or should I change direction?  
  • You feel ‘stuck’ in the wrong career and uncertain about your alternative career options .  
  • You’re tired of procrastinating, over thinking, daydreaming and imagining What if?  
  • You're overwhelmed by career possibilities and worry you'll make a bad choice.  
  •  You long to escape corporate convention and the pigeonhole of your narrowly defined career to do something completely different.  
  • You have multiple interests and talents and struggle to apply them to your career.  
  • You fear the risks involved with a career change / transition and lack the tools, guidance and support to start taking action.  
  • You’re ready to abandon everything you’ve been taught about making sound career decisions and follow a first-act-then-think process of repurposing your career.  


As seen in...

Here are the facts... 

>> Career Change Is The New Normal

The stats show the average person will:

Make a career change approx 5 - 7 times during their working life.  

Due to a increasing number of different career choices about 1/3 of the total workforce will now change jobs every 12 months.  

By the age of 42 you will probably already have had about ten jobs.  

>> Career Change Is A Journey

The key to a successful journey is:  

time + dedication + patience + hard work  

The key to completing the journey is: 

Finding the resources + support that can walk you through the emotional Highs/Lows  

>> COMMITMENT+ PROCESS + ACTION = SUCCESS

 We have to be brave enough to take the risk, make the mistake, and keep pushing pass the crossroads.

Embrace and thrive in uncharted territory. 

CHOOSE to follow YOUR Passion  

Because, in today’s constantly changing world, the ability to adapt and reinvent ourselves is more important than ever.  

Our hope is to give you every reason to feel POSITIVE and EXCITED about dreaming BIG, being BOLD, and starting your journey WITH US! 

MYTH #1

You must choose between following the money or following your heart/passion  

This one is one of the most widely accepted and is a massive lie. It’s rooted in fear and limiting beliefs and making the decision to sacrifice purpose + fulfillment until you’ve reached “X” is, simply put, procrastination. It is possible to make a living by doing what you love. Consider this: When you look back on your life, what will you regret more? Pursuing your passion or heeding your fears?  

MYTH #2

Career change is risky business.

Uncertain -> yes. Risky -> Doesn’t have to be. The truth here is that in today’s economy, no job is 100% secure. What’s important to remember is we can control our motivation + health + wellbeing by eliminating risk and creating a sustainable + actionable plan that makes room for experimentation and discovery.

MYTH #3

‘Sucking up’ your career dissatisfaction will make it go away 

The truth here is you will never be able to shake dissatisfaction in something that doesn’t fuel your passion + overall purpose. You’re ultimately choosing between a passive life or a life of fulfilment. You deserve better and you need to believe that.  

MYTH #4

You should know what you want to do and have a complete plan to make it happen  

Method + Skill have to be developed and nurtured. Change doesn’t happen overnight and when creating a new path it takes small steps to determine the best route to your destination. Uncharted territory takes a willingness to create a path that has not been explored. The best place to start is exactly where you are - build on what you know and identify any gaps, then make a plan to obtain that experience. Enter: your career experiment!  

MYTH #5

Making a career change will compromise what you’ve already achieved  

Career change doesn’t always mean you have to start from scratch. Whatever your situation, making a career change is about building on your achievements and repurposing your potential for a career that ticks your boxes. All experience is valuable, the goal isn’t to change for the sake of it but to maximise the return of all your efforts. 

Here's some truth...

  (Even though you already know it’s time to make big moves!)  

You can live your life and love your career.

The choice is yours...  

Only 2% of people in the world actually live out their “Dream Life” while 98% just dream through life.  

Your FIRST step is to decide: I WILL be the 2%  

We know because we ARE the 2%  

 And so are SO many wonderful people we’ve worked with!  

THERE ARE NO FORMULAS - NO 'ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL' YOU NEED A PROCESS THAT IS UNIQUE TO YOU.  

How to guarantee a succesful career change  

  •  Step by Step Plan
  • Focus
  • Clarity
  • Action
  • Resilience  

We’ve been there. Caught up in the busyness of life, in our own heads, and standing at a crossroads - it’s easy to throw up your hands, accept the status quo and find temporary relief in choosing to do nothing.  

The struggle is real. We’re here to help.  

Out of all the courses why THIS one?

It's time to ditch the formulas and get real, individualised support.  

Confidently Create Your Bold Career Move is the ONLY online program for career change, designed to help you define your core values, determine your priorities and discover the perfect career FOR YOU.  

"This course really helped me to understand my skills, I got so much guidance from Grace and Solonia on my resume, on how to improve my cover letters. And generally doing this course helped me to break out of my myopic view of looking at my career.  

I no longer believe that I have to stick to design (just because that is what I've always done). I'm excited to explore all the other possibilities out there."  

- Amreen Rahman

We PROMISE that when these 5 immersive weeks wrap up, you will not only have the momentum you need to maintain your new career but you will also have the confidence and courage to take your completed first phase of career transition into the next phase of success.  

You'll also get exclusive access to personalised support from Grace + Solonia, collective intelligence from an initmate cohort of like-minded people going the journey with you, and a closed Facebook Mastermind Group of Career Shifters  

But the proof is always in the pudding. If completing the course doesn’t allow you to do any one of the following things within the first, we’ll refund 100% of our payment. That’s a promise.  

So, What's In The Pudding?

  • New personal insights to how your career has shaped your strengths, interests and aspirations.  
  • Define what you really want from your Life/Work and know your next steps.
  • Tell your career story with clarity of where you are on your journey and where you want to go.  
  • Effectively communicate your uniqe strengths, experience and transferrable skill set.  
  • Know what's stopping you and the tools to transform any fear or challenge into an opportunity. 
  •  Learn how to set goals, stay focused, and get shit done - no more excuses, procrastinating, or wasting time.  
  • Start to build better routines, productivity habits and decision-making skills to thrive in transition.  
  • Develop your own style and practice of networking, storytelling and advocating yourself.  
  • Create an actionable plan to ‘pilot’ your ideas and validate your interests before making your bold move - cut down anxiety and feel confident in your decision to pivot your career.  


HOW CAN WE MAKE THAT PROMISE?

Between the two of us, we've hopped across more than 10 jobs, straddled 15 industries/sectors, done the corporate stint, freelancing gigs, hit burnout - bounced back - took the sabbatical, launched an idea, evolved it into a business, and made plenty of nearly-fatal mistakes along the way.  

Basically, we've been there, done that, and wrote the course to do it better.

We're multi-hyphenated 'Changepreneurs' who started on conventional career paths before deciding to carve our own, from scratch. We weren't fed with silver spoons or bred to be entrepreneurs: we're boot-strapping self-starters, driven by purposeful work, learning by doing and reinventing our best selves everyday.  

If you’d like to see a snippet of our resumes: 

Grace Clapham Co-Founder The Change School 

Grace has never been one to fit the mold of a traditional career path, always a multi-hyphenate and multi-passionate, Grace started her career working part-time at as a retail sales staff at a cult brand called Gorman. At the same time she worked part time modelling and occasionally doing some freelancing PR & Marketing in Melbourne, Australia .  

Pretty quickly from there, Grace took on a full time role at Gorman as Retail Manager and over the next 4 years her career change happened internally at the company, from Retail Manager to Marketing & Public Relations, then finally to Sales & Marketing Manager. Through her time at Gorman, Grace learnt the ins and outs of running and growing a business - but most importantly developed a well rounded set of skills that to this day has served her well.  

After nearly 5 years at Gorman, in 2008, Grace embarked on her own path and has never gone back to working for someone else….  

Her journey so far has consisted of: 

  •  Setting up a pop up and boutique fashion events company Sloane Elizabeth Robertson with an old school friend, bringing in the latest fashion brands from across the globe. Eventually spinning off into a group buying site.  
  • Building and running boutique agency Agent Grace where she focused on business strategy, brand management and marketing within the Fashion, Travel, Lifestyle, Social Entrepreneurship and Creative sectors (Grace still works on a more advisory and coaching basis these days)  
  • Lecturing at various institutes in Singapore on Brand Management, Marketing and E-commerce.
  • Community building for creatives, innovators and women entrepreneurs - CreativeMornings Singapore, SheSays Singapore and Secret {W} Business and TEDxSingapore. 
  • Various public speaking gigs with her most prominent ones being, SXSW 2013, where she spoke on Co-Creation By Design: Asia, Women & Innovation and at TEDxAuckland 2016.  
  • Winning the global Inspirational Leadership Award judged by Sir Richard Branson and Steve Wozniak  
  • Awarded the CMO Asia for Leadership Excellence Award as one of Asia's 50 Women Leaders.
  • And….finally setting up The Change School after having her own moment of pivotal change when her father passed away and she wanted a career with more meaning.  


Solonia Teodros Co-Founder The Change School 

Solonia’s creative career journey began when she finally decided to leave her role at Harvard’s Global Health Research Institute and move to New York - with little more than a dream to live and work among the creatives, hustlers and entrepreneurs of the ‘big apple’.  

From 2005 - 2008 her body of work comprised of... Product design, sourcing and supply chain management for FMCG and hospitality brands Studio management, media relations and talent scouting for an international photographer Brand marketing, public relations and business development for local designers in fashion, swimwear, homeware and jewellery/accessories  

Taking a cue from the Wall Street crisis in 2008, she decided to move (back) to Asia and spent the first year as a digital nomad - honing her transferable skills to do freelance projects in different regional markets. From 2008 - 2013 she quickly transitioned from the corporate world to a path of entrepreneurship and continued to build her body of work through...  

  • Corporate PR freelance projects with a boutique financial advisory in Hong Kong  
  • Brand marketing and CSR consulting for a portfolio of public & private sector clients with a global PR agency
  • Strategic planning, digital marketing and project management for local corporations and SMEs  
  • Building ground-up community initiatives and Singapore chapters of global movements such as the Worldwide Feast and Social Good Summit  
  • Conference and event planning for regional business leader networks  
  • Design Thinking training, facilitation and programming for local schools and educators  
  • Setting up a boutique advisory (SolWorks) to help businesses amplify their mission and impact  
  • Co-conspiring with long-time friend Grace Clapham to create The Change School - a culmination of her passions, strengths and diverse experience aimed at helping people to find their calling and create meaningful careers that are aligned to their values, talents and personal vision.  

Together, Grace + Solonia have been on the stage of TEDxAuckland (2017) to inspire more purpose-driven changemakers to Step Up to Global Citizenship as well as receiving Asia’s 50 Women Leaders - Leadership Excellence award (2016) from CMO Asia and World Brand Congress, and the Global Training & Development Leadership Award (2017) from the World Training & Development Congress. The two of them frequent the public speaking stage as ambassadors of change and inspiration looking to ignite a life of passion + purpose in the world.

So what's the VALUE of all of this?

  • Personal 360° Situational Analysis Report. Value $150+  
  • 5 Modules taking you through the initial phases and helping to de-risk career change (videos will be available for Lifetime access). Value $2400  
  • Actionable and downloadable homework, worksheets, cheat sheets, checklists and more for each lesson to keep you on task and moving forward. Value $400  
  • 5 Group Coaching calls to help with brainstorming ideas, solving challenges, and more feedback. Value $600  
  • Lifetime access and personalised feedback via our private online support group. Value: Priceless  

TOTAL ACTUAL VALUE: $3550+ (and over $800 worth of bonuses!)

If that's not enough value, here's what you will SAVE...

  • Money. Career Coaches normally charge an hourly rate of $200 - $300. Multiply that by the 4-8 sessions you’d need and expect to pay anything from $800 - $2400  
  • Opportunity cost of doing nothing. If you’re currently unemployed, an annual salary of $50K works out to $140 per day. That’s a decent chunk of change to be leaving on the table!  
  • Time. If you’re miserable in your current job/role, consider the fact that we spend an average of 20-30% of our entire lives working. Wouldn’t you rather spend that time building relationships and career opportunities that inspire and energise you?  
  • Your sanity. Let’s face it, career transition can be taxing on your relationships, family, health and lifestyle. But with the right guidance, structure, tools and support, you’ll have everything you need to make forward strides in the right direction without compromising the quality and pleasures of daily life. We’ll leave it to you to work out the value of a stress and worry free life, but we’d say the value of freedom is PRICELESS.  

We know the doubt and uncertainty that surrounds career change.  

Maybe you're thinking.... 

  • What if I do all this work and still don't figure out my next direction?
  • Is this the right time to be shaking up my career?
  • Will this be a good investment of my time, money and effort? 
  • How am I going to pay the bills?
  • What if I'm one of those people destined to do boring / unfulfilling work for a paycheck?  

The real question is....How committed are YOU to making a career change? 

We don't have the answer. But YOU do.  

Here's a clue from Warren Buffet:  

"Invest in as much of yourself as you can, you are your own biggest asset by far"
