Our Story

Work Shouldn't Suck!

Founder and Lead Coach, Steph Talarek was working 12 hour days 6 days a week on a paycheck to paycheck salary when she decided that there had to be a better way.
She decided the best way to care for herself and her family was to make a career move that checked all the boxes: 

  • A living wage

  • A better work/life balance

  • A fulfilling workday

Steph vowed that after she switched careers, she'd coach others how to do the same, in a shorter amount of time.

After she achieved her career goal, she got to work creating a program to help others do the same. She focused on creating a program that would be simple enough to do alongside a full-time job but engaging enough to make real, tangible daily progress.  

G&IC was built with a passion for workers' rights. 
Every person has a purpose and a right to a fair salary and schedule. Workers and small business owners are the backbone of the American economy. Each G&IC Coaching Program teaches workers how to negotiate fair pay and schedule. Each small business is created with special attention to the people served and employed by the business. 

G&IC is a community-focused organization.
Each Coaching Program comes with a donation to a local non-profit upon completion as well as coursework that demonstrates how to use your unique set of talents to enrich your community.
