 [ /ˈcareer reb.əl / noun: a person who breaks the rules for the better, and is designing their own career standards to effect positive change.]

we all have an inner-rebel, the part of us that wants to stand out and create our own rules because that's where the magic happens. once we establish our rules, we become more creative, innovative and engaged and this is what the workplaces of the future will demand from us in order to thrive.


unlearn the compliance mindset, open your creative mind and unleash your inner rebel.

we are all rebels in progress, capable of breaking the rules for the better.
