You’re a Talented Creative, A Budding Designer, A VP of Design, The Founder of a Consultancy...

You’ve tasted what it’s like to be creative, to use your talents to create something beautiful, to build something and solve problems that change lives. You’ve had your successes and you’re ready to to influence the world at the next level and make a bigger impact, but, you’ve been noticing, you’re not getting the response that you used to get. You might be finding yourself dreading the very projects that used to bring you excitement. The work you are doing and the energy you are putting into it is losing its luster, and, somehow, you know people are starting to notice.

You want to get your career to the next level - perhaps to a new industry or even to jump to a new profession altogether - but whatever you’ve tried, it’s not working.

With your tenured experience in the creative industry, you should be at the top of your game by now – but you’re not. You’ve tried all that you know to get there, but the needle hasn’t moved. You need that next pivotal job or client: one that’s utilizing your talents, stretching your muscles, and taking your career to another level, where your work is valued and the results you deliver recognized – but somehow you’ve fallen off the industry radar. You may be getting offers, but they are just not the jobs or clients you want. You’re dying to get back to that high point in your career, but now, no matter what you try, you are not being seen or heard. 

You’re tired of wasted years using the traditional and conventional methods. You just want to get back to making creative impact: You’ve read the books, you’ve networked, you’ve gone to career coaches, you’ve taken the classes, you’ve gotten the degrees… and you’re STILL stuck.

There comes a point where you need to stop making excuses for yourself and do the true work you need to do to get where you want to be – no if’s, and’s, or but’s.

You are not alone.

Many Creative Professionals today are finding themselves stuck in a job or profession they once enjoyed, that they woke up in the morning excited to get to work for… but as time goes on they find it’s taking them down a path that is further from their goals. They’re at a place where they can barely recognize the Creative they once were.   

Having worked in the nexus between business and design, and between employers and talent, we understand the confusion that lies between. As you move down the career game, you begin to question your value and doubt rears its ugly head. “How did I get here?”

You have one life. There are no “do-overs”.

We understand how talent evolves or, more so, what you need to understand about how to make it evolve. We’ve helped hundreds of Creatives build careers that they love and THRIVE in. Thriving in your career is doing what you love, making serious impact AND getting recognized to the point you’re winning the recognition, advancement, and compensation you deserve. Everyone deserves to THRIVE. 

Whatever your situation may be, Yeh IDeology’s Thrive By Design comprehensive program will help you assess your talent profile, qualify the best combination of your abilities, identify the top possible avenues for growth, and build a successful game plan to reaching your ideal future today.  Through this methodology, you will develop your own career strategy plan that evolves with you as you and the job market as it evolves so that you’re not only staying relevant but you’re identifying where you can continue to succeed best. You’ll build on your career goals and master techniques to land your future milestones.

You deserve to THRIVE. Thriving in your career means doing what you love, making serious impact, AND getting recognized to the point you’re winning the recognition, advancement, and compensation you deserve.  .

In fact, Angela helped me make some of the biggest decisions in my career. I'm so glad I heeded her advice. She knows her stuff. Angela has a natural ability to understand how people will grow and stretch. She helps people unlock their true potential."

"I'm several months out of the TBD program and definitely feeling the results. Some results since TBD: billable consulting hours have more than doubled from last year, billing at higher rates, with one client on retainer agreement, more clients in target industries (fashion, decor and branding), more consistent clients, able to quit part-time and teaching jobs to focus on consulting, hired an intern, built a brand complete with a new line of products to be launched on Amazon in under 4 months, and 2 high profile speaking engagements! "

Heather Blaikie
Product Development & Design Consultant

"When I contacted Angela, I was not having much success getting callbacks for interviews. I had applied to well over 750 jobs will little success and was frustrated by the recruiting process. I was chasing job opportunities without a real strategy or focus. Angela and her team, through the TBD process, helped me to get on track, focus on what was truly important to me, and go deeper and wider on what was driving me and satisfied me. I was all over the place because I was capable of doing many things and not focusing on pursuing things that were right for me. What I thought I wanted was actually not what I wanted to do--the process made me realize that. Instead of working for others, I should have been focusing on being an entrepreneur. I am much happier fulfilled now that I have started my own businesses. The process and coaching was good for helping me focus on what was really important to me. "

Exit Planning Strategist at NAVIX Consultants

"The Thrive By Design course I took with Angela was a career highlight. I have a 20 year old brand strategy company that I needed to "refresh" and Angela's course proved to be extremely effective. In my journey to reposition my company, I also flew to Las Vegas to take Tony Robbins' 5-day Business Mastery course. Angela's Thrive By Design course was far and away more superior. (I walked out of the Tony Robbins course! It did NOT work for me) She knows the design and branding community inside and out, which was imperative to my revitalization efforts and she gets to know the individuals she's working with which was invaluable. The outcomes of this TBD journey were beyond expectations; I had 4 strong directions I could pursue at the end of the 8 week period. I now have two directions that have form-fitted together as one unique company and I'm now working toward bringing it all to life. I strongly recommend her service for anyone in design or branding who is considering a career change or entrepreneurs who need to revitalize an existing company or start a new one. The approach is business-like, yet fun, smart and efficient. An A+ in my book!!!!"

"Before I started working with Angela, I had just moved back to the US from China. I had been practicing design for 15 years, but having been out of the country for so long, my professional network was practically nonexistent. Industrial Design is such a niche profession that it was hard enough to find opportunities, let alone secure one. I realized I had to seek help to figure out what my strengths are and what I wanted to achieve. The best designers tend to be lone islands of confidence, but sometimes you have to reach out and find guidance to learn and get moving. Yeh IDeology helped me get on this path and move in that direction by not only looking for a job but by propelling myself into more new experiences to gain a better understanding my skillset and what I bring to the table."

Daniel Chu
Founder of Pragmatc Innovation, LLC

" (Angela is) an amazing entrepreneur, an influential leader in the design and talent strategy space. She has helped me multiple times throughout my career and she’s helped tons of executives in the design and advertising space, rediscover their passion, realign their career goals and repackage them for the new economy. She is a powerhouse. "
