Confidence, Creativity

& Clarity in your Career

You’re So Ready

To turn your career into something you’re
excited to strive in.

  • You want to have clarity and confidence in your career pathway and vision
  • You want to do work that matters to you and have autonomy and control.
  • You want to spend more time working on work that fulfills you and less time on work you feel like you should be doing or just because you’re comfortable there.

You want to step into your life’s work

There has never been a better time to take control of your career path.

You’re not sure what your next step in a career that fills you up looks like

but you are not satisfied with what you are doing anymore.
You’re in a job that is familiar and safe, but not satisfying.
You feel constantly stuck figuring out how to make someone else's ideas a reality - and rarely your own.
You’re not being seen as a leader, and not feeling as mission driven as you would like to be.

You want to be purposeful and intentional about your career

but you’re not even how to figure out what you need to figure out.

Imagine what it would feel like to have a clear path to your next fulfilling career stage.

Image waking up to feel you’re at the right position

You look forward to going to work daily

You’ve grown your leadership role – and you feel confident  and alive in it

You’re working with people that bring exciting ideas to the table

Or maybe you finally have that seat at the boardroom table…

But whatever it is, it’s right for you and you only.

And thrilling opportunities start to magically show up because you’re clear on what you want.
You’ve landed that director role in which you can pursue your passion for community engagement
You made that career switch you’d been going back and forth on for so long, - and you're thrilled you did!
You've jumped to the next level of income and comfort in your life through a leadership promotion
You have more time to be creative and intentional in your work and are proud of what you do
You're initiating the projects that excite you - instead of being staffed on ones you don't choose
You're the one who’s being asked to be on the panels, the selection committees and onto exciting collaborations

You want more from You Career but You Are stuck

you're not sure how to get there.
  • You want clarity and confidence in your career pathway but you’re getting stuck.
  • You don’t know how to untangle overlapping threads to make sense of your work and what you want.
  • You feel like you can’t actually see and understand all of the possibilities.
  • You’ve read a lot of “self help” books, but they haven’t given you the answers you needed. You don’t want to read another book or do another worksheet.
  • Your self motivation is exhausted, and your self doubt about how to move forward – and if you can really have all the things you want – is really big.
  • You need more A Plan with milestones, A Goal, a different perspective.

Life is Short

Do you really want to be living your Plan B life
when you could be living your Plan A creative career?

The Creative Career Blueprint is
NOT for you if you...

  • Are new to the workforce and are still learning the ropes in your field
  • Are not willing to try different strategies or challenge yourself
  • Need a job tomorrow or don’t have the time to get a longer term vision to guide your next move
  • See your career just as a vehicle for financial support (no shade – you do you) and not ALSO as a vehicle for a larger contribution
  • Already have a longer term career vision that integrates your multiple parts
  • Want to go it 100% solo – are not interested in supporting other women and being supported by them on your way up

The Creative Career Blueprint is perfect for you if you...

  • Are willing to do things differently than you have before
  • Want a longer term vision to guide your career and are willing to spend the time developing a more strategic plan
  • Want to make an impact through your career
  • Are willing to push yourself to the edge of your comfort zone by supersizing your goals, or applying for roles that you’re worried you’re not qualified for
  • Worry that you’re too complex to find your pathway.
  • Want to support other women—and be supported by other women on your way up

Step into Your Life’s Work.

More is possible.

A career that is aligned with your life’s work, and that integrates all your parts. 

Clarity and Confidence in your career pathway and vision.

A blueprint to guide your career trajectory – on your own terms – to guide your decisions and give you direction and next steps.

You’ll step into a life that is entirely your own, instead of following someone else's agenda - actively creating your own success.

You've got a choice.

You have a choice to stay in a situation where something’s not quite right. To make choices for your career based on whatever happens to come along. To not know what to aim towards, and what’s the best use of your time.


You can keep reading the articles and books, having endless conversations that you hope will contain that one insight that tells you what you should do – or you can get the guidance and support of the Creative Career Blueprint which will give you the clarity on a career direction that integrates all parts of you – and impacts your life, and gives you the confidence to go get it.

Am I too complicated for something like this to work?

The Creative Career Blueprint program was founded by a “a multi-passionate-for-life” and the process is designed specifically to make sense of and integrate all the parts of you into a career direction. And if some parts get ‘left out,’ the process helps you “bake in” the other parts through a side project, thought leadership focus, or initiative.

What if I Get Stuck?

We have a private community forum in which you can get questions – even on your individual situation – answered. If you ever get stuck, or confused or don’t know what to choose – all you have to do is ask a question. We will help you move through.

I’m worried I’m too busy.

When you’re not clear on what you want, you get stuck on a busyness hamster wheel. Your time gets filled with OPP (other people’s priorities), and you feel busy and overwhelmed all the time. You tell yourself “after this deadline” or “after that milestone.” And that becomes a state of life. The Creative Career Blueprint will give you a career trajectory and roadmap that you build step through tiny step.

should I be able to get there on my own?

We creatively-minded strategic people think we should be able to figure it all out alone. But when you’re in the story, you can’t see it. The best coaches, designers and consultants work with other coaches, designers and consultants. It frees them up to make the best decisions because they don’t have to also create the entire process for themselves.

Sometimes we hesitate to invest in ourselves because deep down, we don’t think we’re worth it. But what are you missing out on if you don’t? The Creative Career Blueprint process has helped women land five-digit raises, jump in salary level or title, and escape toxic work situations.

You are your best asset. Can you afford not to invest in yourself?​

By Learning This Through Our Online Program,

You Get Huge Benefits Without a Huge Price Tag.

Hiring someone to do all this would cost you $5,000+

And you’d have to hire a mindset coach, a career coach + a personal branding expert!

Hiring me as your 1-1 coach would cost you $4500+

And we’d only cover a fraction of what we cover here!

Going to a one-time conference would cost you $3,000+

but you’ll have to be ‘on ‘for three days, and you’ll learn a lot, but it won’t tell you specifically, what your pathway should be.

Listen, with the strategies in the compensation module *alone* you can make back your investment in this program.

But I want you to have the full, complete system for getting the career clarity you need to be your best self – the confidence, and more creativity in your day-to-day, – AND the skills to back it all up in a salary negotiation.

I want you to have it all.


Step 1:  Enroll in the Creative Career Blueprint.

Purchase the program with a payment plan or the full-pay option. You can pay with either PayPal or credit card.

Step 2: We’ll send you login information.

We’ll share access instructions, and tips on getting started. Access instructions to our group Q&A calls if you purchase that support option.

Step 3: You’ll get immediate access to the course.

A Getting Starting module will be waiting for you and you can dive right in and begin working on the program.


As soon as you enroll! After you enroll, you’ll have six months’ access to the program materials.

This program is meant for women with over 5 years of work experience and beyond. With less than five years work history, you may not have enough experience to draw from to narrow down and craft your career trajectory. If you have 20+ years of experience and are experiencing a plateau, or have felt sidelined, this program will help you get back the career you want.

We recommend committing 2-4 hours per week to the course. The course is broken up into mini lessons that make it easy to move forward, step by small step. In addition, in the Getting Started section of the program, we share advice for making time for the course even if you have a busy schedule.

It takes time and focus to be in this program. – but it was designed with busy women like you in mind. We know you’re busy so we’ve broken up the course into achievable ‘mini modules’ that move you towards career clarity, creativity, confidence (and compensation!) step-by-tiny step. And you can take the course at your pace in the order that works for you. Got a performance review coming up? Take the Compensation module, which will help you prep efficiently to walk out with what you want. Or practice a confidence tool in 20 minutes a week and reap the rewards.

We know you’re busy! So we’ve the structured the program be delivered in mini lessons and exercises, that move you forward one step at a time.  If you don’t take action, you won’t get the outcomes you want in life and work. Therefore, the course lessons are also highly action- and decision-oriented, rather than purely information driven. (I’m passionate about taking action!)  They guide you to make decisions and take action, rather than just give you nice-to-have information that fills your brain.

Get the program for six monthly payments of $267. Or you can pay in full, $1497, and save $100.

You can pay in full with a one-time payment of $1497 or break your payment up into six payments of $267. 

The results you achieve will be different based on what you are trying to change in your career. After doing this work, women have attracted all kinds of amazing things—like the woman whose work got published, the woman who networked her way into a higher-title job. Or the woman who got a multi-thousand dollar raise she didn’t even ask for.  While I can’t promise that that will happen to every woman who takes this program, I can promise that if you do this work, you will attract and create more of the opportunities you want.

The Creative Career Blueprint packages the one-on-one career direction coaching process I take clients through – but covers way more – it includes a deeper training in creative profile building, and in getting compensated for your worth. I also have a one-on-one coaching program on Thought Leadership for women, which covers only one of the strategies in the Creative Career Blueprint’s creative profile building module.

Creatives tell ourselves we should be able to figure it all out alone–we’ve got that DIY spirit and think we can take it all on. But you’re so busy being the expert in your craft, that you’re not the expert of how to fastforward your career journey. You might have a narrative that investing in yourself and your growth is selfish or impractical, but you are your best investment – and prioritizing your career growth will often make you happier and wealthier.


“The script that I got started on during the program has been a quarter finalist in two screenwriting competitions. I’ve also  been accepted as a new member at Bromfield Gallery in South Boston! The program gave me a structure for pursuing both parts of my artistic sides – and getting traction. So lots of movement despite the pandemic! “



“Although I probably shouldn’t be surprised, but I was happily amazed to find that I turned to many of the tools and habits I’d learned during my program to push me through these last several precarious months in the pandemic – and am happy to report that I’m co-teaching my first course at Penn on bridging student’s research/activist agendas with professional practice.”



“I have so many interests that don’t seem to have anything in common. I also find that I say yes to too many things, and end up spreading myself too thin. I’ve learned to find ways to combine my interests in an impactful way where I no longer have to compartmentalize my different passions.”



“This program helped me to figure out what I do need to be doing and –  what I DON’T need to be doing.”



After leaving an organization I helped to build, I needed help with figuring out what direction to take my career. I was able not only to negotiate for and secure a position directing community engagement efforts with a prominent organization – but I was also able to identify numerous opportunities to share my story and expertise with a larger audience.



“[The program] helped me plan and actively be more visible in my industry… I actually just sent a proposal out this week for some new work I pulled in!”

Hi I’m Mia "Maya" Scharphie

and I’m obsessed with helping women
align their careers with their highest potential.

My company, Build Yourself, started as a workshop at Harvard Design School to help women build power and confidence.


But I soon saw a critical element missing – because the women I taught didn’t have a clear sense of what they ultimately wanted – they needed a clearer vision for what they wanted to achieve in their careers.


I started working with women one-on-one, applying my design thinking training from Harvard to the design of their careers.

I created the Creative Career Blueprint to teach women that career design process so you can get more confidence, clarity and creativity in your career.

I’m excited to see you find the path to the career you want – on your own terms.
