Make Your Mark


Hello. I’m your guide, Beth Ridley. For those who don’t know me, I left my corporate job in 2019 to start a company called The Brimful Life, which helps individuals live professional lives that are filled to the brim with joy and meaning.

Before I founded The Brimful Life, work was a source of stress versus true joy and meaning. I often felt like I couldn’t really bring forward who I uniquely was. I diminished my full personality, talents, experiences, and passions to fit into the corporate culture and fulfill expectations of others. I was stuck in that all-too-familiar rut—doing what was safe versus doing what truly inspired me. Plenty of people told me, “work is work; you don’t have to love it.” But I didn’t care if I don’t have to love it. I WANT to love it.

So I took the leap of faith to create a new professional future for myself rooted in what I’m passionate about and good at and based on my own definition of success. And guess what? It worked. Big time.

With some help from my personal career coaches, inspiring mentors and courageous friends, I want to guide you through the process I used to make a professional pivot and share what I’ve learned over the years. And have fun!

Make Your Mark

is a three-week virtual empowerment experience that will help you flip your inner switch to think differently about your career without limits and to gain clarity and courage to take your first steps on your path to more professional fulfillment. Everything starts with one step. Your first step could be carving out my time to invest in a hobby that brings you joy or starting a side hustle or just playing to your strengths more in the job you have. Whether your step is big or small, better is better and we’ll get there together.

Join me and my team of 15 career catalysts (expert coaches, wise teachers and inspiring speakers) who will guide you to unlock your potential and find your professional purpose. We are here to help you discover success on your own terms by shifting your mindset, pushing you out of your comfort zone and sometimes also getting out of your own way.

The event is produced and led by Beth Ridley — one of the region’s foremost experts on leadership, workplace culture, and professional development. The speaker roster is comprised of certified career and life coaches and mentors who have personally charted their own career journeys and made changes big and small to discover true joy and meaning professionally.

Nope. We will use a very user-friendly platform to offer a high quality interactive experience compatible with phone, tablet or lap top. However, I recommend lap top for the best experience.

No. Your participation in the live sessions can be as public or as anonymous or as active or as passive as you’d like by deciding if you want to join with video on or off or responding to group discussion. We encourage video on and active participation, however, to foster a sense of community and contribute to collective growth and learning.

Yes. All workshops are pre-recorded and can be watched on demand. All live evening group coaching and guest Q&A sessions will be recorded if you miss them. Participating live is the best, however, so you can get your specific questions answered.
