Finding Your Purpose: Build The Career Of Your Dreams In 3 Simple Steps

A 3-Stage Approach To Find Your Why & Get To The Job You Have Always Wanted


  • Do you feel stuck?
  • Are you tired of a job that makes you unhappy?
  • Do you feel like you are meant for more? Are you sick of seeing anyone else making it, while you're stuck in neutral?
  • Do you wish your Mondays felt just like your Fridays, where work doesn't feel like work anymore?
  • Are you ready to take matter into your own hands and get the career and financial independence you deserve?

If you answered "YES!" to any of the above, you're in exactly the right place.

Finding Your Purpose: Build The Career Of Your Dreams In 3 Easy Steps started with me: my story and my struggles to pursue my dream career and find a job that brings me happiness, joy, and fulfillment every single day. It is possible. I have done it, and you can too.

To date, I've helped hundreds of people - of all ages, fields, levels, & backgrounds - break into the industry of their dreams, become business owners, be the best at what they are already doing, or simply land the career they have always dreamed of.

With this course, you are taking a chance on yourself and you are taking a step forward towards your goals - and this is rarer than you think! Most people are too afraid to stand out, and spend all their lives trying to fit in (but fit in, in what?!). I am going to teach you how to package your expertise, establish yourself as a BRAND, and stand out!

Remember, when it comes to career transitioning and personal strategy, YOU ARE THE BRAND!

Finding Your Purpose: Build The Career Of Your Dreams In 3 Easy Steps is a rich career opportunity, but not one that can be easily learned from a textbook. Instead, Finding Your Purpose: Build The Career Of Your Dreams In 3 Easy Steps is a fun, hands-on, empirically backed-up personal growth and professional development boot-camp from which my students emerge more confident and prepared to do incredible things.

My students have landed higher paying jobs, started their own businesses, became the go-to person in their field, took their job performance to the next level, identified their ideal "side hustle", reached the financial independence they have always dreamed of, even left their 9 to 5 jobs to confidently and intentionally pursue their dream career, and much more!

"My time with Finding Your Purpose: Build The Career Of Your Dreams In 3 Easy Steps positively changed my entire mindset about what I want to do with my next life chapter. I have been an entrepreneur for over 25 years, and this really allowed me to refresh my skills, redefine my goals, and take actions right away! If you're an aspiring entrepreneur, just starting your career or are currently working in a role that is not for you, follow my advice and take advantage of this incredible chance to build (and boost!) a successful future for you and your family"

It gave me the confidence to ditch my dreaded 9 to 5 and I am excited to pursue a career in the IT field as a young entrepreneur. I am so grateful for this experience. Dr. Ylenia truly inspired me to follow my dream.
- Chris Jackson, Full time student & Entrepreneur


Hi there - I'm Dr. Ylenia!

A successful national and international coach, career expert, and wellness entrepreneur. At one point in time, I was a broke ex-athlete with a 9-5 that I hated and no idea of what to do with my life and my degree. After what I would totally call a quarter life crisis, I decided to take a leap of faith, move from Italy to Chicago by myself (where I didn’t know anyone!) and take a chance on me.

I had a passion for helping people achieving their full potential, I combined it with my business and marketing background, and I completed my PhD in Business Psychology. Today, I have helped hundreds of people pursue their true dreams.

Everyday, I help people achieve their top potentials, bypass the challenges that hold their dreams hostage, so they can break the chains that they have been held down by and build the career, job, online business, and financial stability that they want!

When I look back at my journey (from swimming, to corporate America, to a complete different side of the world, to my current career as a business and career coach and consultant/entrepreneur), I always think “I wish I knew then what I know now!”

I want to give you the chance to never have to wonder “Where would I be, if I knew then what I know now?”, and to take control of your life and your happiness. If you feel like you are meant for more, you feel stuck, you want to be your own boss, the go-to person in your field, or simply the best at what you do, this is for you. And I am here to take you there!

With a love of psychological assessments (and a high “Conscientiousness” DiSC profile to boot!), I believe I possess an expansive breadth of knowledge that enables me to help individuals of all ages use empirically-backed strategies for identifying and changing behaviors in order to live happier and healthier lives. I have a passion for helping people reaching their “next level” and their ideal careers.
Dr. Ylenia is a natural-born teacher and I am so impressed with what a great success this course was! I loved the structure of the course because it allowed for me to really set my own paste. I have been in the mechanical engineering field for years, I was feeling hopeless, and had no idea what I really wanted to do with my life. Finding Your Purpose: Build The Career Of Your Dreams In 3 Easy Steps was everything I had hoped for and more. It helped me figuring out what I needed to change, and pushed me to ask for more, and to seek what I truly deserve. It was an incredible experience that I truly believe changed my life forever”
