Meet Your Coach: Caroline Adams

Caroline Adams: Career Coach

Prior to becoming a coach, I had a successful 20-year corporate career leading organizations through transformational change.

During that time, I built great teams, delivered a ton, and became a master at manifesting my own unbelievable career opportunities, including:

  • Landing a management consulting gig in Paris right after graduation–just by telling everyone I was going to do it

  • Negotiating a year-long job transition, which allowed me to take a sabbatical, find a new role, and start my coach certification training

  • Turning a full-time dead-end job into a part-time Director-level position that allowed me to run my business on the side

  • Moonlighting for a group I wanted to work for . . . then converting it to a full-time role of my own design

Yet what I’ve always loved most is helping others define their careers. I’ve made it my mission to help people grow, contribute, and ultimately get wherever they want to go.

Once you get crystal clear on what you really want, there’s no limit to the opportunities you can create (and others will create for you).

This is not about finding just another job. We’re talking real transformation – a career and life that work for you.

I am an aspiring Minimalist and FIRE (Financial Independence and Retire Early) Enthusiast.

Why you do coaching with HTYC:

I coach for Happen To Your Career because life is too precious to stay in a job that doesn’t work for you.

It kills me to see amazing people stagnate, shy away from opportunities, and let work take over their lives. I have been there myself!

I love working with people to ask the BIG questions, like:

  • Am I making an impact in my company and the world?

  • How can I make money and do what I love?

  • Can I get to a happier and fulfilling place in the career I’ve chosen, or is it time to jump ship?

  • How can I balance my career ambition with goals for my family, friends, and significant other?

We are living in a world bursting with opportunity. It’s time to seize it!

My goal is to help as many people as possible take back their lives and design a career with purpose. Together, we’ll navigate the important questions, explore multiple paths to get there, and make it happen.

The key is in taking a leadership role in your career and life. You’re the boss.
