Are you finally ready to...

Unleash your potential, love what you do, get paid for your brilliance, and make an impact in the world.

Without sacrificing everything you've worked for.

And no, you're not too old, it's not too late, and you don't need another degree because you already have everything you need to get the career and life you want.

You just need a proven system to show you how.


This is the place to finally let go of all your people-pleasing, limiting beliefs, self-doubts, imposter syndrome, and all the other bullsh*t that's kept you from having the career and life you want. Apply now if you're ready!



There's no better time for women to own their voice, step into their power, and take control of their careers.

You've been hustling, climbing that ladder of success, functioning on auto-pilot, but now that you're at or near the top of that ladder you don't much like the view. And now you find yourself struggling to maintain all you've worked for, but the career you've poured into doesn't seem to be returning the favor. 

You've dutifully followed societal rules, invested years and thousands of dollars into your education, and you even have a great (dare I say enviable) career with the respect of your colleague, family, and friends.


You have no idea how to make a change or pivot, are terrified of what's on the other side of change, and find it hard and disturbing to admit to yourself (and even more to others) that you're miserable.

You keep trying to convince yourself that it's ok to feel lukewarm about what you do or that you should be grateful for all you have, but deep down you know there's something else out there.

You've been hearing that whisper telling you there's something better.

And it's time to listen.

The truth is you have a choice. 

You can do nothing and continue to be unfulfilled, overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated OR you can stop settling and questioning your knowledge, gifts, and abilities and get the right strategy to get the career you want.

 You've tried taking on more/less/different responsibilities at work to figure out what you really want to do, but it was only a temporary fix, and you still end up overworked, overtired, and overlooked.

You've taken many leadership and professional development courses and still lack clarity on what you really want to do.

You've gone down the rabbit hole of applying for multiple positions with the secret hope that they'll say no because you dread the idea of starting over with a new company and losing your pay, retirement, and seniority.

You've been networking with others, letting them know you're interested in making a shift, but it doesn’t result in anything because you don't really know what you’re looking for, leaving you even more discouraged.

You've tried going after promotions and advance in your company only to be told you lack "presence" or "real" leadership skills, which makes you second guess yourself, your worth, and your abilities.

You've wondered how to monetize your passion, but you don’t know how it would make money, and you're too worn out from your job even to get your side-hustle going.

You've talked to and asked your well-meaning mentors, family, and friends for advice, but it only served to confuse and frustrate you and increase your stress, guilt, and mental exhaustion.

You've been trying to stand up and stand out, but you keep playing small and selling your soul in an unfulfilling career that doesn't let you be your authentic self or give you the recognition you deserve.

With all roads seemingly leading nowhere, it's easy to feel hopeless, give up, and decide that what you have is as good as it's going to get.

And if you're thinking, "it's too late for me," tell that negative brain of yours to quiet down and keep reading...

Just because you’re at a different place in your life doesn’t mean you’re at the end. That’s just fear talking, along with the unspoken effects of gender, racial, and age bias that you’ve been exposed to most of your life.

At midlife, you’re uniquely positioned to step into your fullest potential by leveraging your years of experience and innate brilliance to get the money, life, and career you desire and deserve.

Listen, I’ve been there and have the battle scars to prove it. But I promise to hold space for you to break through the misogynistic conditioning, prioritize yourself and your dreams, and step into the highest version of yourself as you prepare to make an impact in the world.

And before you start looking back on past mistakes or failures, I want to invite you to keep looking straight ahead. It doesn’t matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done. At midlife, the only move that matters is your next one.

So, if you agree to show up for yourself, go all in, stay open and curious about the process, I promise you'll have everything you need to get what you want in your personal and professional life.


Say goodbye to indecision and 
hello, to the brilliant badass version of you!

Goodbye, golden handcuffs—
hello, to the brilliant badass version of you!

Each day feeling empowered because you're living your best life with an aligned career that allows you to make an impact on your family, community, and the world.

Reclaiming your voice and confidently expressing yourself fully because you're no longer living in fear and believe in yourself and in what you can make happen.

Commanding a salary you deserve and getting financially rewarded at an income level that matches your brilliance, experience, and leadership.

Can you see what amazing and wonderful things could happen in your life if you just took a moment to sit still, block out the distractions, create a blueprint, and took massive action?

Listen, I know you have questions, and you're probably worried about taking the wrong step in your career. After all, your decisions don't just affect you.

But until you clear out the bullsh*t, build the proper mental foundation, and get a clear strategy to follow that's uniquely designed to appreciate where you are right now in your life and career, you will make some critical mistakes that you simply can't afford at this time in your life.

If you've been waiting for a sign, here it is.

I invite you to step into more freedom, more flexibility, and more joy as you step into the driver's seat of your life and career.

In case you haven't heard, you can absolutely be both successful and fulfilled. 

After working with HUNDREDS of amazing, talented, professional women just like you, we can indisputably tell you that getting the career and life you want requires you to master both the inner and outer game, and you'll work on both in the Academy.


By now you may be thinking, "how can I do this?" "How will it work for me?" Don't let the "treachery of how" confuse you, stop you, or get in your way.

YOU don't need to know how to make it all happen. That's a trick your ego plays to keep you from making the change you know you're ready to make. All you need is the commitment to make it happen. The "how" is what we're here for!

And let's face it...if you're here, you're ready! a holistic professional development program that provides a proven framework for high-achieving women in midlife to position you perfectly for the next chapter of your life and career.  

On the path to your next pivot, you'll gain clarity around your aligned career path, have the confidence to navigate career crossroads, and the courage to position your expertise to get financially rewarded for the value you bring.  You only need to be committed to getting what you want.


Dr. Deneishia Fisher

Carol is amazing. She has such a broad knowledge base. When we're in a mastermind meeting, she can seamlessly go from one person to the other, listen to the problem, address the problem, and establish an action plan. She has so many resources, has your back, and is ready to help.”

Vinessa Pearson

“Carol has a proven system for helping you go through the necessary steps to identify your strengths so that you can step into what you feel is your vision in life, your purpose in life. The collective peer coaching group is an added perk to her executive team, guiding women on various topics every month. Carol is a great coach to help you with your career pivot and lead you in the right direction.”

Chaeli Wallace

“The ultimate accomplishment has really been understanding myself better and who I am in the workplace. My greatest success has been learning more about me and how to use my story to execute greatness. I highly recommend working with Dr. Walsh. She's so talented. I found so much benefit in the things that she has to teach.”

Ready to become a Rebel? 

A Rebel woman has the audacity to shun all expectations of what she should be and becomes who she's meant to be. She knows all the societal pressure placed on women and is simply not having it. She's impeccable with her word, committed to her personal and professional development, takes massive action, and achieves her desired results. She believes there's no better investment of her time and money than on herself, and does so easily with full belief that's she's completely worth the ROI. She doesn't strive for perfection, but she's dedicated to working through her fear to get the career and life she wants.

This program is designed for that woman.  


You're already a leader making power moves, you just need the right container to help you make the right moves. With this program as a guide, you’ll reject the limiting belief, people-pleasing, and imposter syndrome that's been holding you back if you're ready.

You're NOT Ready to Become a Career Rebel if...

 You're too busy to prioritize yourself and focus on your career goals.

 You're not willing to invest in yourself or hold yourself accountable.

 You have a defeatist mindset or pessimistic attitude.

 You're not coachable or believe coaching is about giving you all the answers without you doing any of the work.

 You just want another job or promotion and don't care about career alignment.

 You need someone to hold your hand every step of the way and tell you what to do.

 You're looking for a "quick fix" instead of strategy and support.

 You just want a resume revamp or interview prep without examining your values and purpose.


Life before becoming a Career Rebel

Frustrated, uninspired, and unsatisfied with your lack of career direction, knowing you want more freedom, flexibility, creativity, etc. but feel stuck in what you're doing and where you're at.

Brainstorming a list of titles and interesting scenarios that you quickly determine won’t work because of education, time, money, age, or passion.

Plagued with imposter syndrome, doubt and insecurity about your skills and abilities, and what's possible for you at this stage of your career.

Sick of living a "good enough" life with a "good enough" career that leaves you bored and unmotivated.

Tired of not showing up authentically or as the badass, you know you, not making your own decisions, not doing what you love or are meant to do, and not being recognized or financially rewarded for your expertise.

You're Ready to Become a Career Rebel if...

 You're in senior leadership and have been in your career for at least 10 years.

 You're committed to overcoming your limiting beliefs as part of your personal and professional development.

 You're a high-performer, self-motivated, and ambitious professional woman in midlife.

 You believe in and are ready to make a significant investment in yourself.

You'll work through our proprietary "Triple-A" framework.


You’ll rediscover your value by gaining clarity around who you are and what you offer to awaken what’s possible for you in your career. You’ll learn what fuels your desire to build a meaningful career instead of just having a job. You’ll discover the work you’re meant to do in the world, the impact and contributions you make through your superpowers and zone of genius, reimagine your future vision, and step into the highest version of who you want to be.

Regardless of your personal mission in The Career Rebel Academy, you'll learn how to manage your mind and emotions, overcome obstacles, and break free from the limiting patterns keeping you from getting the results you want. 


After years in the career game, we know what works and what doesn’t when it comes to establishing ourselves as a sought-after authority in your field. We'll work in-depth on your self-confidence and your self-esteem so that you learn to have critical career conversations, be daring and take action without needing permission. You'll gain radical confidence allowing you to be seen as an expert and trusted authority who can make an impact on the world and create a compelling brand and presence.

In this phase, you’ll reposition your brand, communicate your expertise and authority with confidence and consistency to set yourself apart from the crowd by taking your digital presence to new heights and being an example of what's possible. 


Career freedom isn't real freedom until you're free to have the lifestyle you want. In this phase, you'll activate your advancement, pivot, or recalibration plan to realign your career with your life. You'll take massive action, test your ideas, and have the audacity to level up, building on your past achievements to ensure your future wins and realize your purpose.

Whether to strategically position yourself as an influential leader in your current or next organization or to plan your escape strategy using your brilliant brand to position your entrepreneurial genius, you'll create an aligned career strategy that's in harmony with the life you desire and deserve.

By shifting your perspective and gaining emotional independence you'll develop self-advocacy skills to achieve your financial goals, create time and space for yourself, and enjoy a liberated living for the rest of your life.

Anne-Marie Sebastiani

“Dr. Walsh has so much experience in so many different avenues, you can just pick a lane and know you’re getting a depth of knowledge, experience, and information and working with her. And her positivity in helping you really feel like you really can do anything is contagious!”

Dr. Abena Osei-Wusu

Carol is a great coach. She's a great cheerleader. She's your sister, your friend. You can be real with her, and you can talk to her. I felt so empowered having her at my side and knowing what needed to happen next.”

Erica Edwards

“ I work with Dr. Carol to build my confidence and self-esteem and tackle self-doubt and criticism. So much of this work is about loving yourself, how you perceive yourself and encouraging yourself to stay on track. Since working with Dr. Carol Parker Walsh, I've been much more proactive about pursuing my career goals.”

Let us tell you why you need to act now.

Studies on "regret" have found that at midlife when we look back over our lives, it's not the things we've done that we regret, but the opportunities we missed, the things we have not done. 

I do not want you to look back at this moment in your life with regret. Life’s way too short to be stuck in a career or life you don’t love. You’ve already spent 10, 15, or even 20 years in a "good enough" career, don't you dare waste another minute.

If you're waiting for the right time...

the “right” time is always NOW.

Decisions create power in your life. When you stop wasting your energy on indecision you’ll start making the empowered decisions necessary to finally get what you want and avoid a life of regret.



Dr. Anabelle Broadbent

“This is not one-size-fits-all advice. She listens, and she gets it. It’s great to be able to speak to anyone in the group and ask for guidance, advice, or support. You have a whole community of women who are exactly where you are. Anyone going through a period of uncertainty and searching would be the perfect candidate to work with Dr. Carol. In October 2019, I was asking for a seat at the table. Now I’ve created my own table instead. I wouldn't have been able to do it without the work I did with Carol.”

Monique Phillips

“Carol Parker Walsh guides you through your journey of self-discovery with exercises and activities that uncover the core of who you are. By completing this journey with her, I can clearly determine the opportunities I want and have the language and confidence to convince others that they need and want me. Carol Parker Walsh pushes you to dig deep to rediscover the authentic you, and to unapologetically let yourself shine in your greatness.”

LaTanya Schwalb

“This has been an invaluable experience and extremely educational. My confidence has increased exponentially because I have a greater understanding of what works best for me and how to show up as a leader. And the response has been immediate! Carol has expanded my mindset and my possibilities. As women, we are too often misaligned between who we are, where we want to go, and how we show up. I would highly recommend working with Carol.”

Hi! I'm Dr. Carol Parker Walsh (creator of the Career Rebel Academy)

I created this program because I wish something like this existed when I was in my mid-40's stuck in a career that looked fantastic from the outside but was slowly killing me on the inside. It took a near-fatal car accident to force me to listen to that voice that had been screaming at me, telling me that I was meant to do something different, something more.

Now, in my 50's, I'm on a mission to provide women the professional development needed to own their authority and leadership and create an aligned strategy to get the career and life they deserve.

There's nothing I hate more than seeing smart, talented women stuck in roles that don't align with who they are now or in mindset traps that hold them back from realizing their next chapter.

As a certified executive and life coach and seasoned career and brand strategist for executives, senior leaders, academics, professionals, and entrepreneurs, I know firsthand how exhilarating and frightening it can be to buck the status quo and chart your own path. 

Right now, it may seem hard to believe, but doing work you love that's aligned with your values and affords you the lifestyle you've longed for, is 100% possible. My clients and I are proof of that.

That's the purpose and impact of our work in this program.  

There's magic in bringing ambitious women at midlife together, and no better time to do it than right now! I believe in what's possible for you.

Let's go!

Twila Kaye

“Carol is the only mentor and coach I’ve had that can get me from where I am to where I want to be. From helping me develop my image and brand to discovering what I’m really meant to do in this world, she has successfully guided me through from point A to point Z. If you’re looking for a coach — a real coach — who can actually get you to where you want to be, then you have to work with Carol. It’s that simple.”

Ida McCarty

“I secured an ideal position with a phenomenal company because of Dr. Carol Parker Walsh. She helped to provide me with tools to clarify and implement my vision. I could not understand why previous employment left me empty and emotionally drained. Through her strategic conceptualization and teachings, I learned what kinds of elements, environments, and cultures suit me best. She taught me to seek employment cultures that are conducive to my unique, elemental personality and work ethic. Undergoing her coaching program was the best investment I’ve made in twenty years.

Dr. Tracy Richmond

“I'm much more comfortable talking about myself and my strengths than I ever have been. Especially for executive women, professional women, and women in the middle of their careers, it's empowering. I feel like I have more control over my destiny than I had in the past, and I come home at the end of the day happy with the work that I do.”

I’ve helped clients thrive in high-demand, high-impact organizations just like yours...

There's no better time to take control of your career!

The Career Rebel Academy™ is exactly what you need to give you the mindset, support, strategy, confidence, and community to get unstuck at this pivotal time in your life! Don't wait another minute!
