Discover your True North

A journal that will guide you in charting the course and creating the path

You’re right one time!


If you’re between mid-twenties to your thirties, you might be waiting for your big corporate career promotion, your business breakthrough or your one true love. You’ve probably asked, “When will it be my turn?”

I know you’re tired of the same old life, yet you’re either not really sure of what you want or how to get there.

You’ve come to the right place, at just the right time.

I’m glad you’re here.

From IT Professional to Career & Life Coach

Hi, I’m Kurly!

I have very fond memories of childhood and adolescence. I did well in school, made good friends, played in the streets and attended proms/soirees. Then I spent more than 10 years having the best corporate career, rising up the ranks and making a name for myself.

I retired from my corporate job in my thirties. Like you, I realized I was tired. I stepped out of my comfort zone and pursued what I’ve always wanted — to help people realize their potential, reconnect with their purpose, discover their passion and pursue their dreams.

More about me…



Come as you are.

Start where you are.

It doesn’t matter who you are, how messed up or put together you are. Just come.
It also doesn’t matter where you are right now… Whether you’re at the peak of your career, you’re in crossroads, or inside a dark tunnel. Wherever you are is a good place to start. Just start.
When you’re ready, choose your starting point: Discover, Design, Decide & Do.



If you’re feeling lost, uncertain, tired or even paralyzed, know that you are in a good place to start. God’s universe has a lot of options to offer. But before we connect with and explore the world outside, let’s start with the very basic by connecting within ourselves. 

Let’s connect within!


Perhaps you have a pretty good idea of what you want to do, why you want to do it and where you’re headed… but you’re not sure how to start or where to start. Ahhh, the perfect place to start is where you are! Let’s work on designing your career, your plans and your life!

Let’s create!

Do and Decide

Ahh, so you’ve done all the self-checks and planning, and you’re ready to go. Or, maybe not yet… Perhaps you feel like you need a little boost to get things started. Perhaps you’ve gone a few miles along the way already, but found yourself moving slowly, getting stuck or thinking, “Am I there yet?”

Let’s connect with the world, collaborate and carry on!

Professional Service.

Personal Touch.

I understand that trusting someone is not easy. So let me help you decide.

How can I help you?

Career and Life Coaching

What would you do if you weren’t afraid? Let’s talk about your ultimate dream career. Let’s talk about what you love about your job. Let’s talk about what you wish would be better. Let’s talk about that one big goal you have in your life. Let’s talk about your “someday list”. Let’s talk about what scares you.  But we will not stop there. Together we uncover insights and discoveries. Together we create a plan to move forward. That is what coaching is about.

Online Personality Assessments

People are not one-dimensional. We are highly complex beings with several “layers” of uniqueness that make us whole. Take one or more of these assessments to help you discover, understand, better articulate and validate behavior, motivations/passions and decision-making tendencies (judgment), and schedule a consulting/coaching session with Kurly.

Then use these as a springboard to calibrating your compass, creating your plan and  charting your path.

Online and In-Person Workshops

Workshops are carefully designed with YOU in mind. A combination of approaches is used to ensure that participants are engaged, content is relevant, and learnings are applied.

Choose from one of the public offerings or let’s customize one for your company, organization or even a group of friends.


“Thanks Coach Kurly! Talking to you was enlightening and I had many realizations. Excited for day 1 back to work! Keep inspiring! You are awesome.”

DISC assessment made me realize so many things about myself. When Coach Kristine explained the results of my assessment, it almost made me feel like I was having an a-ha moment. It has not only made me understand myself more but it has also allowed me to identify the different personalities of my team members. What’s more important is that I was able to come up with action points on how we can work effectively as a team

What if I fail?

What if I fail?

I asked myself this question, a lot of times. Sometimes, in denial or in another form. But at the end of the day, I know deep inside me, that I am scared to fail too.
I got your back!

I got your back!

Sometimes, we are scared to rest.  Sometimes, we feel guilty about resting.  Sometimes, we feel that rest or sleep is unproductive. Sometimes, we feel like something’s wrong when we’re not busy.  If you feel that way sometimes, this message is for...

Absences and Judgment

Absences and Judgment

It's so easy to judge someone who is absent. Why wouldn't it be? The person isn't there to speak for himself or clarify. Why do we make excuses when we can't make it? What makes it hard to speak the truth?
