The support and guidance you’ve always wanted.
We are lucky to live in a world that offers so many opportunities — many never before seen — to choose our work and reach our highest potential.
The challenge is the road to our best career can be overwhelming and fraught with self-doubt. It often means getting out of our comfort zone, ‘putting ourselves out there’, and embracing change.
Here’s the good news: You don’t have to go it alone. You don’t have to white-knuckle it all by yourself. Most importantly, you don’t have to stay unhappy and stuck because you don’t know where to start the transition to your new future!
Inside AndThriving, you will not only get the resources you need. You will be supported. You will be surrounded by like-minded, motivated, change-resilient professionals so you never have to climb your chosen mountain all by yourself.
It’s not about waiting to feel ready and making giant leaps.
Instead, it’s about being agile and focusing on incremental action so you’re always moving forward and creating momentum.
The Confident Pivot™ gives you a step-by-step process for making decisions about your career — even if you don’t yet know all the answers — and for choosing your best path forward.
The Confident Pivot™ is my signature framework for defining, strategizing, and planning your pivot.
Let’s explore TCP in detail so you know what’s happening in each section.
In this section, you’ll allow yourself to expand your thinking and get crystal clear on your Big Picture. You’ll dive deep and incorporate the 5 components that make for a truly meaningful and resonant Big Picture that will fuel your career goals.
In this section, you’ll focus on foundation mindset that will allow you to usher in the changes that you want to see in your career. You’ll challenge some of your limiting beliefs so that they do not become impossible obstacles along the way.
The objective of this section is to make your career goals as specific as possible. Using the Pivot Canvas™, you’ll explore possible avenues to your end goal. Then you’ll identify the clearest, most direct possible path to your career goals. In this section, you’ll also identify and differentiate between true needs and objections fueled by fear. If you happen to be unsure of your career goals or intentions, this section of the framework will help you gain clarity and help you make a decision on your desired path.
In this section, you’ll map out your support system — the community and different resources you’ll need to achieve your career goals.
Inside TCP, we follow the 90-day planning cycle. No annual planning here! In this section, you’ll create your 90-day projects and 30-day plan. You’ll use all the intel you’ve gathered from the previous section as inputs to your projects and plans.
Each section of TCP consists of multiple videos, journals, and workbooks. You’ll gain access to the complete framework as soon as you join AndThriving. This way, you get to work it at your own pace and time.
I had no idea what I wanted to do next in my career and I felt stuck. In a world rife with uncertainty, I walked away from this with a clearer sense of what I want. The Pivot Canvas exercise gave me a way to look at my options objectively and a formula that I can do over and over! — Ruby Wu
Working TCP at your own pace and schedule is great.
But it doesn’t mean you have to do it alone.
As you work through the sections, you will get 1:1 guidance as often as you want. And even after you’ve completed TCP, you will continue to be supported through the Weekly Office Hours, held on alternating Fridays and Saturdays, to have private mentoring conversations with me.
Plus, you can gain invaluable support from your peers who, like you, are also focused on thriving in their careers, when you share experience and progress inside the network.

Lou helped me design a clear career path based on my strength, passion and technical capabilities. I was really impressed with her in-depth understanding of the global workforce. The fact that she has so much experience as a professional makes her an excellent career advisor. — S. Karni
Hiya. I’m Lou Blaser and I’m the founder of the AndThriving Network.
My work spanning over 20 years now, has always been focused on making “change” happen. As a management consultant for PwC, I helped our clients create and implement the changes they want to see in their organizations. Since 2014, I’ve re-focused my work toward helping individual professionals usher in change — sometimes intentional, sometimes imposed — in their careers.
I believe that our work is more than simply what we do to make a living. It is our best path to our highest potential and one of the most significant ways we can make an impact on our families, communities, and society-at-large.
I want to see a world where we all have the ability to grow and thrive in our careers. This vision fuels my career and life choices. Helping create this world is the mission of AndThriving.
And I would be so honored to be cheer you on and play a small part in your success.
I’ve been meeting with Lou twice a month for the past six months. Our talks have made the difference with clearing my mind, setting realistic goals, and having the courage to keep moving forward — even if I’m just taking baby steps. These regular conversations help me work through the mental blocks I never knew I had. In the past, I was afraid to talk about my struggles. Now I realize the importance of being honest with myself about these roadblocks if I want to make progress with my career goals. — Shara Haberman
