About me

Hi, I’m Monika Sałach! (🎧Sah-wahkh)

I worked in IT for many years, loving (almost) every minute of it. It was challenging, satisfying, and amazing despite putting long hours and dealing with stress.

But then the disappointments and stress started piling up, I ended up in a swirl of demotivation, irritation, self-doubt, and guilt. It robbed me from previous joy and passion, and impacted my personal life.

My burnout resulted in taking a coaching course to find some temporary relief from the stress. It soon became my passion, reviving satisfaction and what’s most important – bringing new meaning to my work and life. This is when I decided to leave IT industry and become a career and life coach, especially for fellow IT and Tech people who lost motivation and joy in the current work, who experienced burnout, or who are looking for work that would add meaning and purpose to their life.
