Testimonials From Past Students


A former marketing strategist who transitioned her skills to build a freelance business she runs while travelling the world.

“I’m living my dream life. Beaches, rice paddies, coconuts, and sunsets.. all while doing work that I find fulfilling and meaningful.  I would absolutely not be here as quickly if it wasn’t for Lydia.

I needed a clear path to freedom from the office taking my existing skills and creating a tangible business I can travel with. I’m forever grateful!”

Ella. C


A formerly employed engineer who doubled her income with a consulting business.

“If you’re open to changing your habits and belief systems, and truly want to be pushed out of your comfort zone to create a lifestyle and work/life balance of your dreams, Lydia is your coach.

Working with her changed my life and my approach to work entirely. I cannot go back now, only forward, and I’m excited for the years ahead.  I no longer dread work!”

Tracy. L

A former academic turned teacher book and course creator coach.

“Lydia strikes the right balance of compassion and no-nonsense ‘reality-check’ advice that has gently supported me in taking back my own power in my life.

She has guided me to look more honestly at myself and how I react to challenging situations that crop up in my life, helping me to identify the lessons that are blocking me from moving forward and creating my dream life.

I no longer have any excuses to keep playing it small!”

What’s Up With This “Pay From Your Heart” Deal?

In a nutshell, Pay From Your Heart means you check in with your heart and choose a payment that feels right to you.

I decided, from my heart, to set the minimum contribution at $50, and a sustainable price of $100.

The sustainable price supports my work, my time, and my energy to produce high quality content to support more people.

If you live in an economy, or are simply in a financial situation, where spending $100 causes distress in your daily life, you’re invited to choose the minimum price.

Otherwise I invite you to pay my sustainable cost of $100, and welcome you to consider paying more if you can, as it balances and sustains those who cannot.

About Your Instructor:  Lydia Lee

I left a cushy six-figure corporate job in 2013 because, despite my success, I was living for my vacations. I had to ask myself: “Is this all there is?”

After navigating my own work identity crisis and transitioning out of my own corporate shackles to launch a profitable consulting business and creating my own ‘dream job’ at Screw The Cubicle, I kept getting asked the same question: “How did you do it?”

As I started delving more into the world of transition and working with everyone from underpaid teachers to burned-out bankers, I’ve developed approaches to help you with every step of the way, from self-employment strategies to work reinvention plans.

Since then, I’ve helped hundreds of talented professionals repurpose their skills to create better versions of their careers and become better versions of themselves.
