Today, Blake Schofield welcomes me to her show “The Bridge to Fulfillment” where I share powerful insights and real-life examples of challenges that every parent is struggling with.

Are you ready to build a stronger connection with your child and help them become healthier, more resilient, and ultimately, more successful in their lives?

Then this episode is for you…



Blake Schofield is the Founder of The Bridge to Fulfillment®, a mom of three and former corporate executive who spent 18 years in Corporate America building, growing and turning around 8 and 9-figure businesses.

Despite her success, Blake constantly found herself feeling unsettled, chasing the next job or promotion to “make it better” so she could finally do fulfilling work and be able to have the time she wanted to have a less stressful and more present family life.  

After two cross country moves and increasing frustration that every job seemed to be more of the same, she finally realized that the career she was in no longer fit.  Blake’s personal journey through three career changes, years of seeking the right path for her life, overcoming the fear and doubt of forging a new path, and successfully building and running her own multi six figure business is the basis of the work she does everyday.  

Today, Blake and her team help other heart centered, driven professional women, who are at a career crossroads, figure out how to use their skills and passions to transition into more fulfilling careers without having to worry about taking a pay cut or starting over.
