COVID-19 UPDATE:  Until my toilet paper runs out, I'm offering a "buy one, give one" deal so you can help someone in need.

When life returns to normal do you want to be the same? Or do you want to be better?
  • Are you struggling in your career?
  • Do you feel frustrated or burnt out with no end in sight?
  • ​Are you frequently overlooked for raises, awards, and promotions?
The b BRILLIANT program is advanced career training
and personalized coaching to accelerate your success.

Don’t Settle for an “Okay” Career

You spend most of your waking hours at work each day. Don’t accept a work situation that isn’t gratifying. You deserve more!

b BRILLIANT is a life-changing, career program. It combines a self-paced, online, video course with small-group coaching. 

These are unprecedented times. We’ve all had our lives turned upside down by COVID-19. But we’ll get through this. And when we come out on the other side, do you want to be the same or do you want to be prepared for a brighter future? 

My number one goal is to coach you on the following concept: You can have a big career, without compromising everything else.

“There was a time when I struggled too…”

Hi, I’m Erin Hatzikostas – friend, mom, boss and career coach – all rolled into one. I became a corporate CEO at the age of 42. But it wasn’t easy. 

I spent over 20 years in the corporate world, bobbing and weaving my way into a CEO position. After literally failing at my first career as an aspiring Actuary, I started to do things differently. 

I realized that instead of following the traditional rules - network, lean-in, have executive presence, blah blah - I could do things differently. I could focus more on standing out than stressing out.

In just five years I was promoted from Director -> Sr. Director -> Executive Director -> VP. I tripled my annual income and became the CEO of a healthcare financial company with 1,000 employees and $2 billion in financial assets. 

I also had great success. I tripled the company’s earnings and sent employee culture scores soaring. More importantly, I took a “big-girl” job while not having to compromise everything else in my life.

I was able to:

  • Achieve incredible business success
  • ​Impact the lives of hundreds of people
  • ​Provide things for my family that I never thought possible
  • ​Remain completely authentic and true to myself (and married!)
It breaks my heart that so many amazing people aren’t the ones climbing the corporate ladder. Too often, it’s the same old, middle-aged “dudes” (sorry dudes). That’s why in 2018 I decided to walk away from it all and focus on sharing what I know with others. 

I’m here to say, you can have the career success and level you want. More importantly, you can have it without compromising everything else. And I’m intensely committed to energizing, guiding and inspiring you to get there!

Simple, Easy-to-Deploy Ideas

Now is the time to invest in yourself. Take control of your career and accelerate your success.

In the b BRILLIANT program, you’ll get specific ideas, strategies and execution plans that can change the trajectory of your career. 

I’ll show you exactly what you need to do to have incredible success without working harder, knowing it all, or sacrificing your personal life. You don’t have to change for the job; you can change the job!

You’ll learn what to focus on if you want to be a great leader, get tapped for the next level, and achieve amazing results.

This is game-changing, training filled with specific ideas you can implement immediately. Go from over-worked and under-appreciated to having the career you love and deserve!

Here’s what people are saying…

This workshop has given me the confidence and support to go after those career opportunities that I would otherwise not go for.

Vera M.
 I’ve been lucky to learn and grow under Erin's leadership and have found a friend and mentor for life. I would highly recommend anyone else given this opportunity seize it and cherish it – it’s an investment worth paying for!

Jenn P. 
Erin is truly one of a kind. I’ve had exponential growth personally and professionally over the past few years, and she is the reason I have a career and not just a job.

Diana Doerneman
The program gave me some real, actionable ways to launch my career to the next level and led me to take a risk with an amazing opportunity with a Big 4 Accounting firm. I applied many of the lessons to help me understand what was preventing me from getting to the next level. I am eternally grateful!

Kelly H.
Erin’s infectious enthusiasm is a much-needed welcoming light. She not only provided real life steps to take but was understanding having lived and walked in my shoes.

Catapult Your Career Forward

If you feel stuck in your current job, you have several options to change your situation:
  • Get a new college degree, maybe a masters, but it’s costly and takes years
  • ​Attend conferences, but they lack the accountability factor so critical to success
  • ​Seek out a mentor, but mentors aren’t trained to coach and motivate
  • ​Hire an executive coach, but they’re very expensive 
Or you can choose the b BRILLIANT Career Advancement Program, which combines actionable insights, small group coaching and personal accountability to give you concrete results with the smallest investment in time and money.

I am obsessed with helping people not only get unstuck, but have big careers (without compromising). If you're interested in learning more, schedule a FREE  30-minute coaching call.

This program helps you get unstuck

Who Should Join This Program

The b BRILLIANT program is for you if:
  • You’re new in your career but have monster-sized ambitions
  • ​You’ve made it up a few rungs but want to accelerate your ascent 
  • ​You’re already accomplished but now are ready for high-level success 
Realize that being a loyal, dedicated employee no longer provides you with career stability. Raises and promotions are not guarantees. You need to stop people-pleasing and placing everyone else’s exciting dreams ahead of your own.

Earn More Doing Work You Love 

b BRILLIANT is a comprehensive program that lets you learn at a pace that works for you. It doesn’t include long, boring training. Even if you only have 15 minutes a day, you can watch a video or complete an activity. (not to mention, I like to keep you curious so the videos are funny and engaging)

In the bi-weekly, small-group coaching sessions via Zoom video conferencing, you’ll:
  • Delve deeper into the lessons
  • ​Get answers to questions about your individual situation
  • ​Have accountability (trust me, you need this) to put into practice what you learn. 
  • ​Enjoy feature guest coaches who have specialized areas of expertise they will share. 
You'll feel energized and focused. And you'll know you'll have someone in your corner as you face the challenges that growth brings.

Turn Isolation into Inspiration

Did you know…
  • Shakespeare wrote “King Lear” and “Macbeth’ while in quarantine
  • ​Mandela developed his leadership skills while in solitary confinement
  • ​Newton studied gravity and created his laws of motion while in quarantine
What will YOU accomplish while you’re in COVID-19 lockdown?

Common Questions

What exactly is included in this program?
b BRILLIANT combines three components to power you forward: 
  • An on-demand, online coaching platform with actionable bite-sized exercises to implement what you learn
  • ​Bi-weekly, live, small-group coaching to tackle your challenges and opportunities head-on
  • ​A Facebook community for ongoing interaction, accountability and community so you can keep the momentum going...for you, and alongside others
What if I’m unsure about my career path?
This b BRILLIANT program will help you uncover your true ambitions. Then we’ll work together to develop a plan to achieve your goals.
My company has all kinds of development programs that I can take but never do because I just don’t think I’ll get that much out of them. Will this just be another one of those?
No! It’s likely that your company offers programs. But here are three points to keep in mind:
  • If you don’t pay for something, you likely don’t pay attention.
  • ​Those company programs are typically taught by HR people or others who haven’t actually done the jobs and things you want to do (Erin has!).
  • ​They often don’t have ongoing, specific and tangible actions to take or accountability to ensure you don’t lose your mojo. 
  • ​They likely teach you the same ol’, same ol’ buzzword stuff. ​​
Erin's approach in b BRILLIANT is designed in a way that overcomes all these challenges!
What if I have limited time to commit to this online training?
The b BRILLIANT online training part of the program is totally self-paced so that's okay! Although I'll highlight a new module each week (as to not overload you), you’ll have lifetime access to the training.
What if I’m stuck in a company where no matter what I do, I won’t have the opportunity to rise?
This will help! I teach how you can break away from those who are blocking you and chart your own course.
Am I too far along in my career? Is it too late to teach this old dog new tricks?
Most definitely not. Some of the things I teach in this program I didn’t learn until I was in my 40s! It is never too late to grab hold of your career…your life, and make it more than it is today.
I have an okay job, so is it frivolous for me to invest in a career program?
Are you satisfied with an “okay job?” Don’t you believe you deserve better? Why compromise or settle? You can have a fabulous job and a wonderful life, and this program can help you make it happen!
What if I start the program and then realize it’s not for me?
The b BRILLIANT program comes with a 14-day money-back guarantee so you can try it risk-free. 

Here's what you'll learn in the b BRILLIANT online coaching program:

Module #1
Getting Started

  • ​You will be coached to set your intentions. When you clearly define your intentions, goals and outcomes – it is nearly impossible not to achieve them. 
  • ​After watching the video lessons, you will answer some simple and powerful questions that will set the current and end state vision as to what you want to get from the workshop.

Module #2
Making Connections

  • “Networking” will be defined in a whole new way by focusing on how to make authentic connections in every interaction you have.
  • ​We'll dig into and debunk the term "office politics" and coach you to remove it from your list of reasons you can't go further up the "ladder".
  • I coach on the all too important Mentors and Sponsors, but I introduce the concept of "Expanders" and "Anti-Sponsors" as well.

Module #3
Getting Uncomfortable

  • Inspiring stories and very tangible steps you can take to start (or continue) to take on new work, projects, and jobs that stretch you until you’re about 50% uncomfortable. 
  • We dig right into making mistakes...and how these are gold mines for growth and getting noticed.

Module #4
Standing Out

  • We tackle the 3 most powerful building blocks for leadership and how critical it is to practice these well before you’re a manager (and it’s also never too late).
  • I will also do some straight talk about how critical it is to communicate with senior leaders in the right way. If you can't nail this, I’m sorry to say your career growth is limited. It’s sad but true.
  • ​I debunk the myths (hint: it’s not just for the big stage or extroverts), the science and power behind storytelling, and finally, I give you my five proven categories for storytelling. Then I put you to work, building your own story library.

Module #5
Focusing on You

  • ​We have a LOT of fun in one of these lessons (you won’t believe the sh*t I think of doing sometimes to make a point). And it will leave you with permission to stop only doing things for others…especially you “mom types”.
  • This might even be the most important lesson there is. We also talk about setting boundaries for yourself. Guess what? You are the only person that will do this. I give you very small, practical tips to implement and build upon. 

Module #6
Going For It

  • ​I walk you through a 3-step process to prepare and ask for the promotion you deserve.
  • ​Not quite sure your next step is in the company you’re in? I also lead a lesson about the most strategic way to look for your next job. And most importantly, what NOT to focus on in that process as well (eh-hem – other people’s opinions).

Module #7
Crossing the Finish Line

  • ​I give you my own, weird-a$$ version of “Win one for the Gipper” speech  
  • ​I talk about other ways we can continue to kick each other in the pants towards more and more success!

Giving Opportunity

  • Are you feeling kind of helpless these days?
  • ​Do you know someone who’s struggling?
  • ​Do you have a colleague who’s unappreciated at his or her job?
Many people feel frustrated and overrun at work. And that was before COVID-19. Now they likely feel that way even more!  

The good news is we can all come out of these difficult times better. Here’s your opportunity to help that special coworker or friend. Nominate that person for a scholarship! 

When you purchase the b BRILLIANT program, you’ll immediately get an opportunity to give away the program to someone in need for FREE. There’s no catch, no hidden fees. So think about who you’d like to help and go make their day by telling them they can join you in this exciting career program at no cost! 
By the way, splitting the cost of this BOGO between two people is also okay.
 My goal is to help as many people as I can to realize their full potential.

Check out some of the scholarship nominations I’ve already received:

“Maria is a single mom to two beautiful young girls in preschool. She is always the last to leave her desk in the evening. She is incredibly smart and self-motivated.”
“Carla works very hard but is often overlooked for promotions. I think she could benefit a great deal from this workshop but would not be able to afford it on her own.”
“Nancy is incredibly intelligent, hardworking and has so much potential but struggles with confidence. She’s early in her career. I think taking this workshop will help give her confidence and inspire her to achieve more.”
