What is Deep Confidence?
Deep confidence doesn’t come and go. It doesn’t depend on anyone else telling you you’re okay. It comes from inside you and starts when you realize how capable you already are and how much you have to offer the world.
Deep confidence goes with you everywhere, whether you’re at work, school, with friends or family, with intimidating strangers or even by yourself.
Deep Confidence feels awesome. It’s the opposite of feeling inadequate, insecure, small, silly and unnecessary.
Believing in yourself changes everything.
Focusing on and stressing about your weaknesses
Waiting for other people to validate your worth
Feeling okay one minute and hating yourself the next, and
Being unhappy and exhausted by life …
… you could:
Realize how capable you already are and how much you have to offer the world.
Trust that you’re good enough.
Carry your new-found confidence with you into any situation, with anyone.
Be happier, more motivated and feel like you truly belong in the world.
“I feel like I’ve been given a toolkit for the rest of my life”
G.D. – Bank manager
Hi, I’m Kristen Carter.
I’ve been insecure. I’ve felt like I needed to impress other people in order to be accepted. I’ve buried my real self in order to fit in. I’ve falsely believed that what I DID was more important than who I AM.
But no more. I take on life my way now, using my inner strengths as a kind of guidance system to choose what I do, who I spend time with and how I deal with the challenges that come my way.
The shift came when I learned what my strengths were and how to use them intentionally. Specifically, I learned to use them to:
Feel better about who I was
Connect more confidently with other people
Have a sense of purpose for my life
Be more motivated about and engaged in my work
Deal with the many challenges that I’ve faced, from work to illness to parenting to worries about the state of the world
It isn’t always easy. Some days I fall into the trap of believing I’m not good enough. This can be triggered by what I see other people doing or from old, self-critical messages within my own head.
But now I’m resilient. I have an inner core, like a field of gravity, that helps me stay centered and handle whatever happens. This was so life-changing that I decided to study the science behind it and became an internationally certified strengths coach, trainer/teacher and program designer. I’ve taught what I’m offering in this program to hundreds of people, from CEOs to kindergarteners, parents, teachers and even my own kids.
There are infinite ways to be.
Why not be YOU!
I’d be delighted to share the simple process that gave me true confidence.
In three one-hour conversations – and you doing some new things in between them – you will discover your inner strengths and a few simple routines that can change your life. This might sound impossible but I can absolutely promise that it’s true, because it’s worked for me and hundreds of people I’ve coached and taught over the past twelve years.
FIRST (and before you pay a cent): We’d talk and decide whether this is right for you
All my clients start with a no-cost, no-obligation, 30-minute conversation so we can get to know each other. During that chat you can ask me anything you want about myself or the program and I’ll find out what you want to accomplish and whether you’re ready to dive in.
If you are, you’d sign up for my three-session program and pay the $479 fee. I’d then send you two PDF “playsheets” (aka homework) and a link to the world’s most awesome strengths assessment, the VIA Inventory of Character Strengths. That would enable us to get right to work in your first paid session.
Please note: All sessions are conducted by phone, Skype or Zoom

At the end of these three sessions you will be equipped with some of the best and most powerful tools ever created to help people believe in themselves. If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, that may be enough. Some people enjoy having a mentor, though, and if that’s true of you, you are welcome to sign up for three more sessions to continue your growth.
I truly want to help you get results. Our initial conversation – before you’ve paid a cent – should ensure that we’re on the right track, but if for any reason you are not happy after your first paid session I will refund your payment in full.
