I know you thought you’d be further along in your career by now…

Tell me if any of this sounds familiar...

  • You feel stuck in your current role… sure, it’s a paycheck, but being unfulfilled comes at a cost… and your well-being has the receipts.
  • You know deep down that it might be time to change careers… yet you’re not confident in how to market your skills… and question whether you’re overqualified or underqualified for every role you come across.
  • You also know you deserve a raise… but no one ever taught you how to navigate those conversations and advocate for the amazing work that you do, let alone position yourself for salary increases and promotions
  • You struggle to seek out mentors, raise your hand in meetings, receive recognition for your work, or step up to lead high-impact projects… and you feel the pressure of being the only Black woman in the room every time you speak up.
  • You’re tired of languishing in a career that’s not aligned… wondering, “doesn’t life have so much more in store for me?”
  • You know you have so much untapped potential to offer… and you want to be in a role that lets your full shine out!

I HEAR YOU, SIS.

(And I’ve been where you are.)

You wonder how long you can really go on like this without burning out from mental and emotional exhaustion. You don’t want to see your talents go to waste!

You know there’s probably a better role for you, but just the thought of going down another LinkedIn or Indeed rabbithole job search already has you worn out.

You invested in your education and you’ve always been willing to put in the work to succeed… but there was no class you could take on Career Development.

You wish someone could take you by the hand and guide you through stepping up and stepping into a more aligned role, a higher salary, and greater career fulfillment.

The good news?


There has never been a better time to discover your purpose and advance your career.


Apply now to join the Conquer Corporate Program!

Imagine what you’re going to feel like when you’ve aligned with your career purpose, landed your dream role, and increased your salary by 30-40% or more.

What would it feel like to know with confidence that you have the skills and training to sit in the driver’s seat of your own career?

To be able to walk into any meeting and raise your hand with confidence?

Or better yet, walk into your next performance review knowing you’ve paved the way for a generous raise?

And it doesn’t end there…

What if you could be the driving force behind high-impact projects that you feel passionate about?

Can you imagine the impact that kind of confidence, fulfillment, and prosperity would have for you, for your family, for your community?

How much would that transform your life?

Right about now, one part of you might be yelling “PREACH!” and another part might be going “Hmm…”

Let me guess, it’s bringing up all the “buts?”

But I don’t know where to start...

But I’ve already submitted so many online job applications…

But no one understands how hard it’s been for me as a Black woman in corporate...

But no matter what I do, my hard work is always overlooked…

But I can’t take any more rejection or disappointment…

I know you’ve faced more than your fair share of challenges in your career, but so have the hundreds of Black professionals that we’ve supported in their job search strategy, which is why I can tell you…


You DO have what it takes to build a fulfilling career of purpose and impact.


And I’m about to show you how.

 Stick with me, and your career will never be the same...

Here’s what your career journey could be…

“Above And Beyond My Ask!”

“After countering an offer, I received a $10K signing bonus, payment of my state license fees, and a $10K increase in my base salary, above and beyond my ask! The department head called me saying ‘we really want you here.’”

- Ke’Andra, Director of Entertainment Business Affairs


“A 51% Salary Increase?!”

“When I joined the program, I was working a part-time retail job far from where I thought I’d be three years after earning my Masters degree. Desiree helped me gain the motivation and confidence to redefine and pursue my passion for marketing and data analytics. Now, I’m at RentPath earning 51% more!”

- Shala, Digital Marketing Analyst


“Landed a Business Analyst Interview WITHOUT Previous Experience”

In addition to the interview I landed at Apple, I also landed an interview with Lbrands for an Associate Business Analyst role!!!!!!! I intend to post this on the Facebook group after I received a confirmation on the interview date. This role aligns very well with my 2.0 self, as in, it is offering what I wrote on my dust-filled post-it from earlier in the program.

- Haja, Homework Help Specialist


Bye-Bye To A Hate-Hate Relationship With Linkedin...

“I got a new job (that I actually love), my confidence feels fully restored, I’m no longer in a hate/hate relationship with LinkedIn, and I got to meet some amazing Black professionals who inspire me as much as Desiree does.”

- Elora, Executive Assistant

The Curriculum

Conquer Corporate helps ambitious Black professional women take their career destiny into their own hands.

We’ve taken every piece of your career journey and turned it into an online university with step-by-step training supported by weekly assignments and robust resources to support you along the way.

There is also no other program out there that’s designed to help you conquer the unique issues you face as a Black woman in the workplace… from microaggressions to code-switching to Imposter Syndrome… and you don’t have to face these challenges alone anymore.

MODULE 1:

Welcome to Conquer Corporate!

Your journey begins with orienting yourself to the program and making sure you’re poised to take full advantage of all the resources available to you. You’ll learn how to utilize the program to create your greatest career transformation through the Conquer Corporate Framework.

MODULE 2:

Cultivate Your Mind & Circle

Next, it’s time to take a deep dive into your mindset and what success means to you. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach. It’s time to define success for yourself so that you’re targeting a career that fulfills you on all levels. You’ll get clear on your goals, your career path, and what it takes to navigate the unique challenges of being a woman of color in the workforce.

MODULE 3:

Craft Your Career Mission

Without a sense of purpose, a job is just a job. Your next step is to identify your career purpose and define your Career Mission Statement using The Purpose Roadmap. You’ll also explore your passions and interests to get clear on your gifts, what you dream of, what you stand for, and the legacy you want to leave.

MODULE 4:

Claim Your Dream Role

Ready to step into the career you were made for? In this game-changing module, you’ll develop your job search assets, identify your dream job, master the interview process, and accept an offer utilizing the Dream Career Attraction System. But it doesn't end there… you’ll also learn how to negotiate a generous compensation package that honors everything you bring to the table.

MODULE 5:

Crush Your First 90 Days

When it comes to succeeding in a new corporate, your performance in the first 90 days is everything. The good news is, by utilizing our New Hire Success Quadrant and creating a custom 30-60-90 Day Plan, you’ll make sure your focus goes in the right places so that all your hard work advances your career.

MODULE 6:

Connect Through Leadership: Part 1 - Self Leadership

Strong leadership skills begin with leading yourself. In this module, you’ll hone your confidence and emotional intelligence so that you can be an effective communicator within the workplace. You’ll apply the Signature Leadership Presence Framework, intentional listening, and the emotional intelligence skills that are critical for career advancement, including mastering difficult conversations and microaggressions.

MODULE 7:

Connect Through Leadership: Part 2 - Leadership Presentation

Now that you’ve honed your self leadership skills, it’s time to level up your leadership style and presentational skills so that you can put yourself in the position to lead teams and command salary increases. This includes everything from creating a lasting first impression to overcoming any fears around public speaking so that you can deliver engaging presentations.

MODULE 8:

Collect Your Raise

In this final module, you’ll develop a strategy to cash in on all your hard work and the leadership skills that you’ve developed to reach the next stage in your career. You’ll learn how to define your personal brand, build relationships with mentors and leverage them to grow your career, how to negotiate a promotion or raise, and so much more.

“#WIN! I want to share that I recently accepted a job offer! After an unfortunate layoff and job search of 5 months, I landed a role at an influencer marketing agency. A huge thank you to Desiree who helped me with salary negotiation! With her guidance, I was able to persuade the company to revise their initial offer resulting in a $9,000 salary increase. And… I will be making $16,000 more than I did in my last role! Never give up and know your worth!”

- Shaniese, Influencer Marketing


“Your program has been invaluable to me, and I attribute it to helping me realize what I actually want to do in my career. It had been in the back of my mind, but the more I delved into the course the answer became clear. I’m excited to now know that I want to get my master’s degree to become a marriage and family therapist. ...This is truly the best decision I’ve made in a long time, and I have you to thank for it. Seriously, THANK YOU!!”

- Karen, Entertainment Coordinator


“I owe you my life. I am sitting in my new office as an HR Assistant making $60,000 (was making $38,000) and it’s ALL because of your leadership and wisdom. I will send a follow-up email telling all about this new position but I couldn’t read one more resume without thanking you!!!!”

- Amber, Student Advisor


“With my newfound confidence and career clarity, I am no longer interested in taking ‘just anything.’ I find comfort knowing that I am the sh*t and don’t have to put my wants aside just to get a new job.”

- Natalie, Sales Manager

“I was unemployed for 4 months and was working with an executive coach, but wasn’t getting all the tools I needed to feel like I was moving in the right direction. After ups and downs for months, within 3 weeks of joining the program I got interviews for 3/10 of the top companies I wanted to work for, got an offer, and negotiated a $15K salary increase. Now I’m making 6-FIGURES!”

- Susan, Public Policy Advisor


“I spent nearly 8 months unemployed, feeling frustrated and hopeless. I struggled with overcoming Imposter Syndrome and selling myself in interviews. During my time working with Desiree I've earned two offers while interviewing with top companies such as Spotify, Facebook, and LinkedIn.”

- Wadnes, Client Solutions Partner


“I just completed a virtual interview for a position at Goldman Sachs!! It was for a role that was recommended to me by a connection and the cool thing is, I didn’t even apply! That’s really cool to see how powerful a connection can be in your job search.

It’s interesting how earlier this year I was focused on gaining interviews to build the confidence that I had lost during the months when I wasn’t hearing back. Now that I have been getting interviews, I have begun to think differently. My confidence is back and I feel really prepared to have career conversations.”

- Jessika, Account Manager


“I got two interviews and was offered a position. For the position I was offered, I negotiated my salary and used advice from Desiree to get a better offer. Although I did not take the job, it was the first time I felt comfortable negotiating my salary as a Black woman.”

- Marcia, Teacher


“Today was my first day as a Program Coordinator with Kennesaw State University! It's only day 1 but everything I was exposed to are things I’ve been YEARNING for years now throughout my career transition. I just want to thank Desiree & her entire team for their guidance and genuine support!! I’ve been bragging about you guys for months now & I'm so grateful that I not only invested in Desiree’s vision but invested in MYSELF!

- Anecia, Program Coordinator


“I’m coming up on a year at HBO, and I keep reflecting on my time in your program. You and your course were such a valuable resource to me during a time when I felt so stuck on my journey. Thank you again for everything!”

- Dana, Digital Content Coordinator

How It Works

Conquer Corporate is a digital program that you can participate in from home, from anywhere in the world, on your schedule.

 As long as you have an internet connection, a device, and a dream, you can take full advantage of everything that the course has to offer. 

You’ll attend bi-weekly coaching calls via Zoom, access our membership portal to view the pre-recorded video modules and pep talks, and participate in our private Facebook community in between sessions.

You’ll be able to go at your own pace and also benefit from being in a community of ambitious Black women like you reaching for the stars and cheering each other on.

Your Time Commitment

We know that you’re busy, and we respect your valuable time. 

Conquer Corporate is designed to save you time by giving you exactly what you need to accelerate your growth through high-impact actions.

This isn’t about wasting countless hours on LinkedIn or Indeed… this is about a targeted strategy that yields fast and sustainable results.

We recommend that you set aside about 2-5 hours per week to go through the modules and weekly assignments, attend the bi-weekly coaching calls, review any of your personalized feedback, and execute your targeted strategy.

In the end, the time invested now will likely save you YEARS of effort trying to advance your career alone.

Why Now?

There’s never been a better time to make your move and cultivate your dream career.

  • The market is evolving quickly. In times of unprecedented change, companies must reshape their businesses and adapt their hiring needs. This means new opportunities are on the market that may not have been available before.
  • Companies are aggressively hiring Black talent. Performative or not, they are now being held accountable to hire, develop, and invest in Black talent. Doors are opening… it’s time to walk through them.
  • Employers are prioritizing flexible candidates with plenty of transferable skills. Your resume can speak louder for you than you think… and even if you have skills gaps, you can quickly bridge them with a free or low-cost online course! 
  • Career changes are the new norm. In fact, CNN recently reported that 61% of Americans want to switch careers. You’re not alone! And you can expect opportunities to emerge as the workforce shuffles into new roles.
  • Each day that you hesitate or delay your career growth, what is it really costing you? Your time, your quality of life, your peace of mind, tens of thousands of dollars in lost wages, and life-changing career opportunities, that’s what. From this perspective, can you really afford to wait any longer?

THE QUESTION IS...

Will you delay your career transition and risk being in the same place 6 months from now? 

- or -

Will you commit to your own growth and take advantage of the opportunities waiting for you today?


This Program Is FOR YOU If:

  • You’re an ambitious Black professional woman or woman of color who is dedicated to growing your career by landing your dream job, pivoting into a new role, field, or industry, or negotiating a raise or promotion
  • You’re passionate about reaching your full potential, making power moves, and continuously learning
  • You're committed to showing up for yourself and cultivating a growth mindset
  • You’re ready to embrace setbacks, rejections, and challenges as a natural part of the leveling up process
  • You know that investing in yourself pays dividends over time, and you’re ready to commit to growing your salary by an average of $10K-$20K/year

This Program Is NOT FOR YOU If:

  • You don’t have an unwavering dedication to your growth and you’re willing to stay stuck and stagnant
  • You’re looking for a silver bullet and aren’t willing to take personal responsibility for your results
  • You’re not willing to put in the time, energy, or effort to advance your career
  • You’re ready to give up when any little rejection or challenge comes your way
  • You aren’t ready to invest in career development and would rather keep DIYing your growth or not growing at all

Our PROMISE to you.

Conquer Corporate will teach you everything you need to know to thrive in a corporate ecosystem, from overcoming fear to exploring your passions and purpose... to negotiating your first multiple 5-figure salary increase and becoming an impactful leader in the workplace.


The Choice is Yours...

You can stay stuck and frustrated in an unfulfilling career or waste countless hours trying to “figure it all out” on your own… but you don’t know what you don’t know.

- OR -

You can enroll in Conquer Corporate and work with a career coach who’s supported hundreds of Black professionals in their job searches and has truly SEEN IT ALL.

Think about where you could be in your career a year from now with this support.

 What will you choose?

And I know you may be asking yourself things like:


“But can I really afford this investment?”

I know that investing in yourself can be a new concept to many, but I’m here to tell you that the investments you make now will pay for themselves many times over in your career.

Think about it -- you’ve likely invested significant dollars into your education -- but did any of that education truly prepare you for the job market?

Conquer Corporate is like getting a Master’s degree in Leadership & Career Advancement.

Not only does this program fill in the gaps in your soft skills, but it prepares you with strategies you’ll use at every stage of your career.

Our intention is to position you for landing your dream role, negotiating your highest salary ever, and laying the groundwork for salary increases year over year.

If you dedicate yourself to career advancement and follow our step-by-step strategies, you’ll find the program more than pays for itself at every turn in your career.


“Can I join the Conquer Corporate Program if I do not identify as a Black woman?”

While we create programs that address the unique challenges that Black women face in the workplace, we do welcome people from all genders, races, and cultural backgrounds to join us as long as they are committed to respecting, supporting and uplifting others within a Black-led space.


“I’m not sure I have time for this…”

I hear that, but the better question here is how much time you’re losing by staying stuck, overwhelmed, or worse, burnt out, in a career that’s not sustaining and fulfilling you.

We all know what it’s like to go down demoralizing job search rabbit holes, firing off resumes into the void, and losing your confidence along the way as you get nothing but crickets.

Who’s got time for that?


“What if I don’t have what it takes?”

As long as you’re dedicated to advancing your career and willing to put in the work with our step-by-step strategies, the sky’s the limit for you.

This is why within Conquer Corporate, we start with cultivating a growth mindset so that you no longer get thrown off by any bumps in the road, and know it’s all part of the process of upleveling your career.

Once you’ve completed this phase of the training, you will never again have to wonder whether you “have what it takes” to do anything you set your mind to.


From Burnout To A 6-figure Pivot During a Pandemic! (Plus Bonuses!)

“You were the first career coach to teach me the importance of ‘optimizing your LinkedIn.’ I was burnt out submitting applications and I wanted the jobs to come to me, so I took your advice and spent 6 hours optimizing and updating my LinkedIn in one day.

Not only am I able to maintain a 6-figure salary even as I pivot industries, I negotiated for an additional $10K signing bonus and an additional $60K to purchase stock within the company.

I cannot believe I was able to land my dream career in the middle of a pandemic making more money than I was at my previous company. WOW WOW WOW!”

 - Raven, Manager of International Education
