|Hi. Nice to meet you. I’m Michelle Braun.
I help ambitious, mid-career professionals (like YOU) fall back in love with their careers.
When I worked in Corporate America, I had amazingly uplifting experiences – and damn near ulcer-causing ones too. When things were great, I felt superb: empowered, fulfilled and like I was making a difference. When things were awful, I dreaded getting out of the bed in the morning.
You spend so much time at work, that it consumes and affects your energy. Work misery spills into other areas of your life and hurts your mood, your confidence, your personal relationships and more. Life’s so much better when you’re in the right place, with the right people and you LOVE what you do!
That’s why I get jazzed helping professionals like you rediscover your purpose, love your job, and enjoy a higher quality of life.
What I Bring To Your Table
I’m a recovering workaholic with 18 years in HR (Human Resources) at Fortune 100 companies. Most of my time was spent in the Learning & Leadership development space.
I also did time in the Recruiting space – designing and implementing Career websites and learning the nuances of ATS (Applicant Tracking Systems). (An ATS is the behind-the-scenes software that companies use to weed out Job Seekers. That’s why I can write a resume that gets through the ATS technology – and gets through to the Recruiter and Hiring Manager.)
My undergraduate degrees in English & Communications are from the University of Michigan. (Go Blue!). My Masters Degree in Instructional Systems Technology is from the University of North Carolina. (Instructional Systems Technology is a fancy-schmancy way of saying the art and science of adult learning.)
Why SuperStar Careers?
My journey hasn’t been a straight line. I’ve been working since I was 12, so I’ve had a lot of job-related adventures – and stumbles.
Even in elementary school, people told me I would teach. I didn’t believe them. Until 2 years after college when I began teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) in Japan and LOVED it way more than my first job at a Marketing & Public Relations agency.
I’ve always been the kind of person who shares a good thing when she finds it. When I discovered things that helped me navigate the Corporate Jungle Gym more easily, I’d tell everyone. Whether they wanted to hear about it or not.
I’m also genuinely interested in people’s stories. Because I find businesses so fascinating, I revel in hearing people’s work adventures. Especially if they’re stories about growing and achieving unfathomable goals. I really groove on “rags to riches” stories, like my Mentor’s: She started as a Mail Room Clerk and ended as the CFO (Chief Financial Officer). That’s grit!
When I’m not role-playing how to negotiate a better compensation package and coaching people to operate from a position of strength (instead of fear), I can be found indulging in watching Scandal, playing tennis, cursing the downward dog, or listening to great podcasts, like Fresh Air.
If you’re dying to know more, here are 8 things people tend to find intriguing about me:
Vision (Where I’m Going.)
My vision is to revolutionize the education system and for SuperStar Careers is to help 1 million people fall back in love with their careers by 2018.
Mission (How I’m Getting There.)
My mission is two-fold:
Wanna Come With Me?
Don’t spend another day drowning in work misery. The Career of your DREAMS starts now.
Who’s NOT Invited?
I only work with SuperStars – or people with SuperStar potential. If you…
…then lets break up. I’m not your gal.
