Here's my "Why"

In my first job as a recruiter I earned

$60K

Then $90K

Then $140K total comp

Within a little over 12 months of starting the last position, I was promoted from Sr. Recruiter to Sr. Talent Manager and negotiated a 19.15% comp increase.

I’m not saying this to gloat but to show you what is possible.

As a woman, I didn't feel like I had the tools to negotiate for my business worth. That's why I created the program. It includes everything I WISH I would have known in my first job.

I’ll show you how to create value while working SMARTER not HARDER. You don’t get paid for the hours you put in, you get paid for the value you create, and I’ll show you how to do just that.

Here’s my background...

For 5+ years, I’ve worked as a top staffing recruiter and have interviewed 3,500+ and placed 100's of candidates. I’ve also conducted interview preparation for 20+ candidates weekly for roles at places like VML, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Google. Additionally, I'm a graduate of Founders Institute, CEO & Co-founder of Brielle (bebrielle.com), and live in Chicago, IL.

Women earn 17.7% less than men.

That's why The $30K Program™ specializes in helping people who identify as women.

You'll earn $30K extra in one of THREE WAYS

#1 Get a higher-paying job. This is THE FASTEST route to an extra $30K. Our clients average 5 months from first application to employment contract signed.

#2 Get a raise (our client raise average is 10%) + start or scale a profitable business. This route takes an average of 12 months and has resulted in businesses worth 4M at seed round.

#3 Start or scale a profitable business. It takes an average of 10 months to earn the $30K. We help you choose a business model that can be profitable from day 1.

The $30K program™ is the answer.

$40K in 2 months!

"I can't thank Maria's team enough! I was making $85K when I joined and within two months, I landed a Sr. Recruiter position that fits like a glove. I also increased my salary from $85-125K + 25K for additional benefits (including stock options from a Series D startup). I am beyond THRILLED. 

Even though I got the new role within two months of starting the program, Maria and her team will continue offering coaching & support as I begin the new role. I'm excited to continue working with her team for the next four months! Her team has shown me what I'm truly capable of.

If you're on the fence, get off the fence & join! It won't just be your bank account that thanks you."

FAQs

How time intensive is the program?

The amount of time varies from person to person. You can expect to carve out at least 1-2 hours a week for calls and 3-5 hours per week to bring to life what you discuss on the calls. Some people spend closer to 10 hours per week outside of the group calls, every person is unique! With our 24/7 email/text access to your coach, if/when you have questions mid-week, we got your back! By joining The $30K Program, you’ll learn tools & tactics (and mindset hacks!) that will streamline the process of achieving your goal.

Is it possible to earn more than $30K in the program?

Is it possible? Yes! $30K is the ROI for a reason though. While you can create significantly more than 30K in 12 months (and some of our members have!) we would rather underpromise and overdeliver. If you earn over $30K, great! That said, we stand by $30K in 12 months because it's the goal our clients consistently reach.

Why do I need a coach? Can't I do this on my own?

If all we needed to achieve our goals was knowledge then 80% of New Years Resolutions wouldn't fail. We provide accountability and save you time, the ultimate resource, by giving you the step-by-step roadmap to take. No fluff.

Is $30K in 12 months the only goal of this program?

Earning $30K in 12 months is the result we offer. That said, some graduates of The $30K Program have said the confidence gained, artificial limits overcome, and courage developed is worth the price of the program. And that’s simply the bi-product!

Is this tax-deductible?

YES, in most cases the investment in business and/or career coaching is tax-deductible. Always check with your tax advisor.

Multiple Job Offer Ali

"Maria is professional, credible, and very experienced. After purchasing the coaching package, I had a meeting set up with Maria where we went over my experiences, career goals, and objectives. After our meeting, Maria was able to digest this information and was able to tailor a strategy that led me through a series of interviews and eventually led to multiple offers that were in line with my career goals. It's worth noting that my background is very technical and it was very clear from the start that Maria is well vested in this line of work and was able to guide me through my interviews and was very responsive to my feedback."

Employee Review Rockstar

"Maria taught me many lessons about job recruitment and negotiation that I was unaware of. She let me that a recruiter can't legally ask for your current salary. She mentioned ways to not answer that question and how to ask about specific benefits with the company you are interested in. General qualities that a recruiter looks for are soft skills, technical skills, that they can challenge themselves, and have good communication skills. Some red flags that recruiters look for are if an applicant talks badly about their current employer and other current or past coworkers. Maria also taught specific questions to ask during your in your company review. These are some of my favs:

 1. What are specific skills you’d like to see me grow in?

2. What do I need to achieve in the next year to raise my salary by 10%?

3. What high leverage tasks would you like to see me implement?

Lastly, Maria helped me understand that “the worst thing they can say is ‘no'." This ultimately proves to me that there is nothing to lose when you negotiate and can benefit you and the other person if it is successful!"

Product Marketing Magician

"I’ve had coaches before, and Maria is what people need. Specifically, I contacted Maria because I need help with marketing a product. More on that in a bit. First, I’d like to explain why she is a great coach.

First of all, she is simply fun to listen to. She is cheerful and mentally sharp, and it is obvious that she has her client’s best interest at heart. You can tell when people care about you. How does she demonstrate this?

She is a great listener. She is warm, but she also got right down to business. Right away, she helped me clarify what my product is, who the potential audience would be, and then she got right down to asking many, many excellent questions.

We spent a good hour on these questions. In that time, I picked up seven powerful ideas. Some were new; others were things I already knew—but Maria drew them out of me! I might not have otherwise thought of them for months. It was awesome!

We concluded by nailing down what my first action steps need to be. These steps will take some work—but they will also be fun! They involve reconnecting with old friends. What could be better than that?

With her marketing background, sharp mind, provocative questions, and multifaceted approach, Maria deeply helped me. And for that, I am truly grateful."
