About Us

About TurningPoint

TurningPoint is a career coaching, career counseling and small business coaching company that helps people find their passions and market themselves or their businesses for maximum visibility and success.

Our network of 50+ career counselors, career coaches and business coaches help career changers or entrepreneurs 1) identify their best target market(s), 2) hone their marketing materials, resumes, and online presence to attract attention, and 3) put the steps in motion to find long-term, rewarding, profitable and fun work.

Career changers go through a career discovery process, including career assessments, figuring out their strengths and selling points, and also packaging themselves appropriately (i.e. resumes and networking strategies) to achieve their job search goals.

The coaching network is made up of Greater Boston (MA) career coaches and career counselors (See: About the Career Coaches), all of whom have training in career counseling or coaching and/or real-life experience in certain industries. (We also have coaches in other new England states as well.) We help clients find not just any career coach or business coach, but the RIGHT coach for their situation.

TurningPoint’s founder Kathy Robinson has been through a fair number of life and career transitions. She has held twenty-four different part-time and full-time jobs since the age of eight, when she decided that economic freedom was a high priority and started two newspaper routes. In her adult life she has worked as a high profile HR Executive in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, engineering, software, and retail (e-commerce). She has worked with many people in career transition and has helped build several small start-up companies.

Kathy’s passion involves helping people find the right career mentor, pursue their ideal jobs, start their dream businesses, or retire after a long career and pursue new interests. Kathy has been interviewed for print, radio and television, including CNN Money, CBS, NPR, Forbes.com, NECN and the Boston Globe. She has a passion for high-quality career coaching that achieves real results.
