Find Time and Energy
to Do What YOU Want

Feeling stuck or stalled never feels good. Whether you long for a new career or a new hobby, yearn to spend time with people or on a new venture, your priorities deserve your attention.

With short video lessons and easy worksheets, you'll master The Lighthouse Method® to finally get started the right way and finish strong.




Move from feeling trapped & frustrated to confident & energized

When you're smart, people at work and at home rely on you.

When you're caring, it's easy to put yourself on the back burner.

Moreover, conventional wisdom, like "Find your passion," "Make a plan," "Set goals," "Take a personality assessment," or "Build your personal brand," might work for some but tend to trip up the smart and caring and keep them trapped.

After 15 years of working with hundreds of talented and compassionate women, Dr. Stacy Kim developed The Lighthouse Method®, a way to make big life improvements that are...

  • Easy and enjoyable
  • Step-by-step and pitfall-resistant
  • Evidence-based and tested by her coaching clients

As a result, her students and clients have been able to 

  • Find more meaningful careers
  • Start creative projects
  • Build businesses
  • Ease into retirement
  • Spend more time enjoying loved ones and friendships

This allows you to control how fast or slow you complete the course. Second, other versions have a community component. And, for some that works great, others prefer to do things privately or own their own. Either way, you have access to support from Stacy.
