Are you an analytics professional looking to take your career to the next level?  Are you tired of being a behind-the-scenes nerd, crunching numbers all day without much recognition?  Well, we've got just the thing for you!  Welcome to the Analytics Success Klub (ASK) by Heatherized, Inc.

Your Best Investment is YOU

We believe that the best investment you can make is in yourself.  But analytic professionals are often too busy to attend expensive training.  So, Lodestar Solutions in partnership with Heatherized, Inc. is bringing a unique membership program for ambitious analytic professionals that want to go to the next level.   Regardless, if you use IBM, Power BI, Tableau or Qlik, social skills are the secret to promotions, raises and interesting projects.

Soft Skills

We know that analytics professionals often have impressive technical skills, but soft skills are just as important for success.  That's why Heatherized created a monthly membership program designed to help you level up your communication, influence, facilitation, presentation, negotiation, storytelling, and other essential soft skills.

Not a True Story but Could Be

Don't just take our word for it.  Let us tell you a funny story about a socialized nerd leading their company through the data revolution.  We know this one guy, let's call him Dave.  Dave was the ultimate analytics nerd, spending his days holed up in a corner, pouring over data sets and running complex algorithms.  But one day, Dave had an epiphany.  He realized that his technical skills were not enough to get the recognition and success he deserved.

So, Dave started attending networking events, joined a mentorship program, and invested in himself.  He even attended a Tony Robins event.  He worked on his communication and presentation skills, and before he knew it, he was leading a team and presenting to executives.  Dave became known as the go-to guy for all things data-related, and he was even invited to speak at conferences.  All because he took the time to invest in himself and develop his soft skills.

Now, we're not saying that you need to be the next Dave, but we believe that investing in yourself is the key to unlocking your full potential as an analytic professional.  By joining ASK, you'll have access to a community of growth-minded individuals who are all working towards the same goal - career success.

What is ASK?

As a member of our community, you'll have the opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals and learn from industry experts.  Our virtual meetings every month will feature guest presenters, breakout sessions, hot seats, and more.  You'll have the chance to share your experiences and learn from others in the field.  We're here to support you as you grow and thrive in your analytics career.  Heather Cole, an industry thought leader and executive high performance coach will provide ASK members insights and things she learned the hard way as an introvert turned socialized nerd.

Lodestar Clients

And here's the best part - active Lodestar Solutions clients will receive two complimentary ASK memberships for their team members!  Just email services@lodestarsolutions.com with the name of your team members and we will get them registered.  Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to invest in your team and take your analytics capabilities to the next level.

If you are not an active Lodestar Solutions client, no worries, ASK is software agnostic.  The early bird membership fee is only $49/month.  Investing in yourself has never been easier or more affordable.  For the cost of a nice lunch with a friend, you can join our community and start building your skills and connections.  Don't wait any longer to take your career to the next level.  Join us at the Analytics Success Klub - ASK and let's grow together!

You can cancel at any time.  But if you do you will lose access to the ASK library and an amazing network of high performers.
