I’m Lou Blaser and you can think of me as your Career Change Sherpa. I’ll talk about me a bit later, but the cut-to-the-chase version is that I’ve been there, done that. I even have the T-shirt.
Executing a career pivot or a career change is a must-have skill.
Why is that, you ask? Because it’s how you don’t get stuck, go stale, or get pigeon-holed. Because you’re not static. You evolve. You pick up new interests. You dream of new dreams. Because it’s one of the best ways to reach your highest potential.
But the most important reason is this: Because our world, this business landscape, requires us to be good at it.
And my role is to arm you with strategies and skills that you will need to successfully (without losing your hair!) plan, prepare, and pursue opportunities for your pivot. Never be stuck or get caught without options ever again!
The tools you need to make your career pivot happen
Through live online workshops and 1:1 consulting projects, I’ll teach you the skills and provide you with the tools you need to get started.
I follow a structured approach to help you draw up your plans, address obstacles and challenges, and most importantly, take real action that moves you forward.

ABOUT LOU BLASER
Lou’s long career sharpened her focus in leadership, change strategy and implementation. For 15+ years, Lou worked as a management consultant for PricewaterhouseCoopers, where she served clients with challenging business problems and diverse objectives. This was followed by a strategy/operations leadership role in a global medical device firm. In addition to some pretty serious analytical, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, these experiences gifted her a unique peek-behind-the-curtains view of companies across a variety of industries—all of which now serve her well as she works to support individuals achieve their career objectives.
Lou has been an amazing supporter and advisor throughout my career profession and evolution. What I most appreciate about Lou is her direct, ‘no sugar-coating’ advice with the sole purpose of helping you push yourself and succeed in ways you never imagined for yourself. I value her support, her positivity and the thought that goes into the candid feedback she provides. Having Lou as a champion as I took a leap into a radically different phase in my professional career has meant the world to me. —G. Ramirez-Elyea
