After a decade of working as a career coach, I've found that individuals who feel stuck in their career are repeating negative patterns that they don’t know how to shift. The trick to career alignment is through an introspective process that helps you choose career opportunities that reinforce the patterns that are fulfilling.

Inner Compass Online Course Process


A self-paced online course that reignites your fire within by using childhood memories — and helps you identify more fulfilling and financially rewarding career pathways.

Does this sound like you?

You're a professional (young, mid, senior, or executive) who has hit a wall in your career and often asks, "is this it?"

You find that books, therapy, and online assessments are not helping you find direction and you're sick of spinning your wheels.

You're open to digging deep and going back to childhood to rediscover the patterns that allow you to thrive and breakthrough what's holding you back to make fulfilling career changes.

You want to bring your innate gifts to the world and contribute meaningfully, but your former career identity is in the way, no longer serving you, and you are ready to take on a new one.

You want a career that allows you to:

Thrive in Your Zone of Genius/ Driving Talents

Make a Meaningful Contribution

You may believe the only way to make a meaningful impact is to work at a nonprofit. We'll define what doing good means to you, so you can make a meaningful impact, personally or professionally.

Live Your Core Values

You may be disillusioned by one of your previous employment experiences. Not only can your core values align with a future employer, they are your guide toward finding the right employer.

Maximize the Best Use of Your Time and Skills

You may be burned out because you're overusing one of your skillsets and underusing others. You want to maximize the skills that ignite you and minimize those that burn you out.

Discover What You're Suppressing

Danielle's process helped draw insights from deep inside me that I inherently knew to be true, but had for whatever reason suppressed. She asks probing questions that were all designed to help me take an honest look at myself over the course of my life, in the interest of determining the best path forward. I appreciated her thorough process, as I gained incredible insight into the disconnect from what I really like to do versus what I was currently doing. The Inner Compass Process is immeasurably rewarding if you are willing to completely dive in. 

—Michael S.
Senior Project Manager

Rediscover The Parts of You That Have Been Left Behind

Anyone who enrolls in this course will rediscover parts of themselves they left behind and then apply them in a meticulous analysis of personal strengths, abilities, opportunities for growth, and potential careers that align with them. In the end I felt renewed confidence and a sense of resolve I haven't felt in some time. To anyone seeking to find a new career, to anyone tickled by curiosity of what else they could be doing, register.

—Chris Kark
Product Designer

Have a Clearer Sense of Your Next Steps

I have been going through the course in its self-paced version. I realize I have a much greater need for connection and belonging than I did when I started my career as a librarian. Initially, I became a librarian because of the perceived needs it met for me for independence and financial stability; now, I want much more to feel connected with the people I work with rather than independent. While financial stability still matters to me, I have a much clearer sense of what that might look like thanks to this course. To that end, I have been applying to some roles at literacy nonprofits - that I think would be much more suitable for me. Thank you for providing this course! Looking forward to further refining my criteria as I continue.

Figure out how your skills will translate

The Inner Compass Process helped me narrow down not only why I wasn't feeling content in my current career, but also what I wanted out of my next career. It helped me figure out how my current skills would translate to my next endeavors, allowing me to use current passions to help me succeed in the next chapter of my professional career.

—Ohm U.

Remember what you loved to do that gave you joy

The Inner Compass Process led me through a ;series of exercises that allowed me to remember what I really loved to do and what brought me the most joy. It helped guide me through the thought process of not only presenting myself as the best fit for the role I was interviewing for but also what company culture and values mattered most to me. Something I feel strongly is such a vital aspect of one's career happiness that normally goes overlooked and unconsidered.

Danielle Roessle, Founder, Executive Career and Leadership Coach

Danielle's Story

Back in 2011, when working as a career counselor for high school students, I realized that I didn't feel fulfilled in my career.

I began the journey of looking for my life's purpose and dream job through participating in workshops and psychology trainings.

During one of these workshops, I confronted my experience of being bullied as a child and I found that the answers to a fulfilling career had been inside of me all along, hiding in my childhood memories. Through exploring my childhood memories, I could transform my pain into purpose.

Because of being bullied, I desire deep connection. One of my innate gifts is that I’m a gifted connector, helping individuals connect with themselves and one another. I'm also highly creative, facilitating unique experiences for individuals to ignite their fire within, find clarity, and career direction.

I left my school counseling job to start my business in 2014 and have helped hundreds of clients find career fulfillment by exploring their childhood memories.

I found that childhood memories are the doorway to understanding your inner compass— what comes naturally to you in your career, what motivates you deeply, and the impact you want to make through your career.

My hope for you (and my experience is) is that by exploring childhood memories you connect the dots from your past to drive your career direction forward.
