Wondering if you're focused on the right things to move your career forward?

It's hard to see outside yourself. You can't see the individual trees in the dense forest. Sometimes perspective from an expert eye will give the clarity you need. Or, a gut check on a decision you're contemplating. The ORIENT program gives a snapshot of your current situation and targeted recommendations on how to focus your efforts.


The ORIENT program includes:

  • An assessment report of your current situation and recommendations
  • An hour-long strategy session to review your report, get perspective,  and prioritize next steps.

The ORIENT program is for you if you:

  • Feel like you're on a hamster wheel of burnout
  • Are ready to get unstuck in your career
  • Are considering a career or job change and want an objective perspective.




Hi, I’m Suzan Bond, the founder of Bet On Yourself.

I help technical experts like you build a meaningful career on their terms. Whether you have a traditional job or work for yourself,  you need to plot your own path if you want fulfillment your career. 

You find the management track unappealing and would rather stick to your area of expertise. You've gone out on your or are considering it, but worry learning all the new business skills will be daunting.

At this point in your career, it's hard to find mentors to give you perspective on how to build that career, package your expertise, promote your latest book or balance it all.  You need someone with complementary skills to help you define what path looks like for you.

I have 10 years experience coaching technical experts to discover and define a meaningful career path -- on their terms.

"I've always heard about the benefits of a coach, but before now I don't think I could of imagined just how valuable a good one could be. I appreciate the time you spent working with me. I have more clarity about my direction and the opportunities I already have available to me than I have had at any point in this journey."
