So, you want to figure out what to do with your life & career ...CURRENT COHORT IS ALREADY IN PROGRESS. GET ON THE LIST TO BE THE FIRST TO KNOW FOR THE NEXT ROUND! 

YOU
ARE THE
NORTH STAR

A program dedicated to helping you figure out what you actually want do (and create) with your life & career via group coaching, self-reflection, weekly actions and a networking-focused community.

Proactively learn about yourself: who you are, what you want, what’s important, and what your priorities are while uncovering the mindsets, frameworks, and tools to understand how to figure out what you want to do, now, and in the future.

Before I tell you about the program, let’s figure out if you are the right fit.

YOU ARE THE NORTH STAR IS RIGHT FOR YOU ...

... if you want to stop aimlessly trying to figure out what’s next as you toggle between feeling unmotivated - you have a lot on your plate already - and feeling overwhelmed - because narrowing down the endless options and possibilities is daunting.

... if you want to really understand yourself, the real you, and start to make decisions about your life and career that honor that. You are a multi-passionate person who has a ton of skills, experiences and knowledge, and you want to make sure you get the most out of how you spend your days.

That's your coach!

RACHEL KOURAKOS

BY THE END OF THIS PROGRAM, YOU WILL HAVE ...

MEET YOUR COACH | RACHEL KOURAKOS

I'm a leadership and transition coach WHO IS dedicated to helping people create change internally in their beliefs and mindsets, and externally in their lives and careers.

I know what it feels like to seek something different or greater. I, too, have wondered how to figure out what I want to do with my life at that big, existential level. And…I approached these questions differently than most people.

 

Over the course of my career, I intentionally switched roles 7 times across two companies because I was unwilling to accept “good enough” when it came to feeling fulfilled and excited by how I spent my days. I worked my way through different roles at Morgan Stanley and Google - but my path was less than traditional. While at Google, I got my coaching certification, started my business, took on part time roles and eventually resigned to help people like you full-time.

I broke the “rules” that people explicitly and inadvertently told me to follow.

I collected experiences and formed new beliefs that allowed each change to bring me closer to my purpose(s)...

And now, I help other people do the same.

I am an expert in coaching people who seek to know themselves (their real selves) and empowering them to use that understanding to make choices to proactively create their lives and careers.

I have spent over 300 hours coaching people to figure out who they are and how to express that in what they do.

I know which frameworks, tools, and mental and emotional shifts will unlock clarity and a sense of control in making changes. I have identified the concepts and exercises that everyone needs to experience to connect with who they are, what they are made of and where they want to go. I have helped people learn how to talk about themselves to share who they are (rather than what they do) and create opportunities that light them up 🔥.

AND THAT IS WHAT THIS PROGRAM IS ABOUT.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE...

what participants are saying about you are the north star

AMY HESS

Communication & Marketing Director

"I highly recommend working with Rachel and taking her You Are the North Star program if you’re at a career crossroads.

 

The program provided structure, support, accountability and inspiration as I considered different paths....I was pleasantly surprised at how effective group coaching can be with a leader like Rachel.

 

Hearing how others were processing different questions sparked my own thinking. Rachel’s own story was also an inspiration. Her love for her work shines through and her energy is contagious."

JOHN HOOPES

Software Engineer & Product Manager

"Going through the program not only brought clarity to what I want to do next, but it really helped me answer some deeper-seated questions around what my highest priorities are and what I truly value...Rachel is a fun and confidence-inspiring coach, and the coursework was designed exceptionally well.

 

It can be tough to do intense introspection, and this course and Rachel's guidance were instrumental in getting me to where I am now. I also thought the group aspect of the program was a huge plus. It was comforting and beneficial to do the work alongside others grappling with similar questions"

STEPHANIE AnkarvalL

Production & Merchandising

"YATNS was incredibly eye-opening. I was really struggling to understand what I wanted to focus on moving forward and to get my priorities straight. YATNS was the first time I had ever participated in a coaching program/session, and the amount of valuable insights I gained from it was incredible.

 

It provided me with a clearer view of what I want to focus on and how to approach it. I loved the group sessions because of the sense of community, the support system we created together, and Rachel was simply incredible in her leadership and attentiveness to all of us. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who needs to develop a better understanding of themselves and learn how to clarify their priorities."

IMAGINE IF YOU...

💡 Knew how to figure out what you want to do with your life

💡 Had clarity about who you are and understood how your past connects to your future

💡 Had the confidence to talk to others about yourself and what you seek, without actually knowing what you want 

💡 Were accountable to carve out the time to focus on yourself and on your future

💡 Built a community and network of people dedicated to learning and reflecting together

💡 Had peace of mind that you could create opportunities that make you feel fulfilled

💡 Understood how your story comes together and felt excited about sharing it

"SHE IS A MASTER AT COACHING...

“Prior to connecting with Rachel I had never worked with a coach, however I had participated in various forms of therapy, peer mentoring, self-directed goal setting, etc. To say my work with Rachel was in a different universe does not begin to do it justice. Rachel is incredibly intelligent, had a successful corporate career, is super well-networked, is a very talented reader of people, is kind and empathetic beyond words, and most importantly she is a master at coaching… she was instrumental in helping me adjust to a new county, new marriage, job search after a few year hiatus, and I have never felt happier or more balanced than I do today.”
