- Hourly Rate: $125 US Dollars
- Gender: Female
Passionate about creating an honest partnership to focus on setting goals, positive outcomes and managing my client’s personal change - I am an active listener and care deeply about their success. This is brought forward through my 25 years as a successful pioneer and award winning leader in the Direct Response and Media industry when I was President of IDG List Services for 21 years.
My caring comes from being a positive and creative thinking person, to help my clients accomplish a forward motion in their lives. All driven by my empathy, humor and compassion which I especially learned while being a full time caretaker for my elderly Mother for five years – providing emotional support to her final ascent to earn her pink wings. I consider this a total honor and would do it all again.
I take a personal approach as a business and career coach. My mission is to focus on my client’s best business decisions, self and life – accomplishing transformation and change. I will be your biggest cheerleader.

WORTH EVERY PENNY. I came to Deb at a time when I knew that I wasn't in the right job but was also not sure what I was looking for. She began by talking me through what I liked about my current position and what I didn't like. She helped to guide me towards what kind of work I wanted to pursue. Then we met in person three times to focus on my resume, LinkedIn profile, and interviewing techniques. She was very flexible about meeting at times that worked for me - after business hours. She was also available outside of these meetings to answer any questions I had or to review cover letters. She really went above and beyond when I needed additional help getting my cover letter and resume ready to send out. When I got an offer, she reviewed it and let me know her thoughts. I really don't think I would have gotten another job without her help and follow up. She gave me the confidence and skills I needed to pursue new opportunities. I start my new job in a couple of weeks at one of the best companies to work for in Boston!

As someone who finds the whole job-finding/networking process to be one of the worst things to do, I knew I needed a lot of help. Deb was able to find what makes me employable while it was buried underneath a mountain of dubiousness and then, also, make me feel like I could move forward and get the job. I cannot recommend her enough.
Makrina O., Property Operations Manager, Belmont, MA
Empowering career coach! I am thankful for the support and encouragement that Deb provided me. She really empowered me at times when I needed it and she gave me the vision to go to the next step. I appreciate all of Deb's direction and coaching and I hope to work with her again when I am ready for the next step.
Gail, Asst. Director of Food Services, Waltham, MA
Deb is an amazing human being and I could not have imagined finding someone of her caliber to help me with my job search. Think about meeting with a life coach for an hour who actively listens and recaps all of your thoughts in an email. Does this ever happen in our busy lives? As a result of Deb's support, kind guidance and genuine and upbeat nature, I was able to take a good hard look at myself. Self exploration resulted in me finding exactly what I was really looking for and then realizing what I needed to do. Deb loves her job, is amazingly competent and you will end up receiving so much more than you could have imagined.

Three months ago, I knew that I wanted to make a career transition but didn't know how to achieve that goal. I felt overwhelmed and was spinning my wheels. Enter Deb Goldstein. After just 1 hour of meeting with Deb, she was serving up gobs of value! Later she sent detailed notes with homework assignments we'd discussed to help me inch closer to my goal. Our sessions continued in this pattern for the next 2 months and I followed Deb's guidance after each time we met. What happened next surprised me. I received a better opportunity than the type I was originally targeting, a job that was more aligned with my long term goals. Had I even received an intermediate job offer that quickly, I would have been thrilled, but the offer I got exceeded my expectations. I wouldn't have received such a gift without learning and following Deb's skilled guidance. I will never approach a future job search the same way again. Deb is a gifted investigator, career therapist, cheerleader, and muse in a single package. She will shepherd you through her organized, thoughtful process, always going at your pace. Deb digs deep with her questions and helps you discover what you want from your career and how to craft your personal brand. She does all of this without telling you what she thinks you want, empowering you to own the process and try new things. Deb will open your mind to a better way of job searching and career building. I will gladly hire Deb again if I need career advice in the future.

It is good to find someone who will listen to your story and then help you write the rest of it.” (T.B. LaBerge) This summarizes the incredible contribution and value that Deb brings to the coaching process. She guides a process of identifying and focusing on the highest priorities. Even when taking on a new role, at a new level of responsibility, in a new environment, with Deb’s coaching I have a sense of control and direction. Most job changes have a life-course, developmental aspect; something we often ignore because of the daily crises. With Deb’s coaching input I am able to step back and see my current role in a developmental light, with purpose and direction, as a chapter in a story that Deb is helping me write.

Deb is an exceptional career coach (and exceptional human being). When I was out of work and professionally disoriented, Deb came to the rescue. By engaging me in thoughtful discussion of my core values, skills and experience, she guided me to reformulate my personal narrative and helped me articulate my professional goals. In supporting me in the development and implementation of customized job-search strategies, I found the confidence and determination to find the job I truly wanted. She was the mirror I needed to discover who I wanted to become. I could not recommend her more highly.

Deb Goldstein is like no other coach. For one thing, she makes you feel smarter than you think you are! Most coaches that I’ve known, let you discuss your challenges or problems and then they proceed to tell you what they think you should do to resolve them. Deb doesn’t tell you what to do. Instead she really listens to what you’re describing and then asks you relevant and pointed questions, questions that make you think. At the same time, she is guiding you through a process that ultimately leads YOU to decide the course of action that is best for you. When YOU make the decision, you are much more committed to the solution. I know this from personal experience.
