Attorney at AMLaw 100 Law Firm

 

"When I attended the “Take Charge: Keys to a Successful Legal Career” my office hosted, I went in with an open mind but no expectations about how useful the workshop would be for me. I was surprised by the thought provoking content which, coupled with Astrid’s creative energy, led me to think in new ways about managing my daily tasks, asking for work experiences I had only been hoping for, and thinking about how I use my time. The creative and positive approach has been helpful to me in the months since. I strongly recommend the workshop as an enjoyable and productive way to rethink how you are using your time and energy at work and, if you are ready, to ask yourself hard questions, such as what your goals truly are."

"Aside from her practical and hands-on approach to building a brand, Astrid explodes with energy at every turn, inspiring you to sit up and take notice of every word she says.  I have to say, I work with passionate people in the arts on a daily basis, and I have never come across anyone so genuinely excited to help people seek their highest potential.  Yes, my experience with Astrid has been tied to the music business side of the world, but her energy, skills, and practices can and should be applied to anyone seeking to be employed doing the thing they love to do."
