Business and Career Coach
Refusing to sacrifice great work for a great life, Marti Benjamin has proven it’s possible to have both simultaneously. When she found herself in a job that ate her life , she launched her crusade for work she could love. Now she leads fed-up and frustrated professionals to their own rich work-life in her career coaching service.
Professional coaching is Marti’s third career focused on service to others. She began her career building strong families through child abuse prevention programs. She held Director and Officer level positions in mission-driven organizations, where she designed new funding models and doubled the capacity of the programs to serve vulnerable children and their families.
Marti transitioned to the healthcare field leading non-profits, hospital divisions, medical and dental practices, and healthcare management companies. She brought business discipline to healthcare organizations while executing the mission of service. Three different CEOs have credited Marti with saving their company when she led teams to solve persistent problems and create sustainable, cost-effective and patient-friendly systems.
Marti pursued a professional coaching career, founding her business in 2004. She studied how personality strengths contribute to personal satisfaction and now designs strengths-based coaching programs. Her proprietary systems guide clients to cut through their confusion and find their richly rewarding work-life in about half the time, when compared to the national average.
In addition to her MBA, Marti holds the Professional Certified Coach, the Certified Career Management Coach, Certified Professional Résumé Writer and the ‘Get Clear, Get Found, Get Hired’ credential. She is a member of the International Coach Federation and the Nevada Professional Coaches Association, where she has served on the Executive Committee for five of the past eight years.
In 2011, Marti put her findings on creating a great work-life in writing and published, “Discover UR Best Self: Guide to a Great Work-Life”. She’s currently writing another book based on the management lessons she’s learned from her dog, Chloe, who’s also known as MizBizWiz.
Len Mayo, ACRW
As a sales and marketing executive, Len knows the value of well-constructed and engagingly written collateral. Without it, there is a strong likelihood that you will never make it through the door even if you have the best product in the world. With it you stand a chance even when others may outgun you.
For over 30 years he has successfully put together compelling documents that prompt his target audience to take positive action. Len brings this same approach to writing résumés and other career communication documents.
Working at Career From Here provides an outlet for Len’s two compelling passions – learning and helping others. He gets to know his clients and what is driving them in their career decisions. In addition he keeps track of what is new in career communications, hiring trends and the job market so he can do the best possible job for his clients.
Len’s adult work-life began as a reporter for a daily newspaper and he later became the managing editor for two trade magazines, managing editor and promotions manager for a boating magazine. During his time in publishing, he was fortunate to be involved with new technologies changing the way business is run. An opportunity presented itself in another industry that was undergoing a similar change and Len jumped in. That turned into a becoming a partner in a distributorship in Silicon Valley.
He later joined with three engineers to found a software company, which ultimately was sold to a firm listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Len moved to another software company as the VP of sales and marketing, selling Human Resource software programs, including Applicant Tracking Systems. He worked with HR VP’s, Directors and Recruiters nationwide, helping them in their decision-making, designing and setting up their systems.
The balance of Len’s career was spent as a marketing and sales executive and consultant for technology companies ranging from startups to companies on the verge of going public. Most provided new services to businesses through the Internet.
As an executive, he has hired and trained people all across the country. During his tenure working for an HR software company he learned from the best in the HR profession what works and what doesn’t in a résumé. As a Certified Résumé Writer he knows that ’it don’t mean a thing if it don’t have that zing’.
Len recently received his Social Media Marketing Certificate from University of Nevada Reno and his Academy Certified Resume Writer certification, one of the most exclusive certifications in the career industry.
