What’s Stopping You From Making A Career Change?

In this episode

In this episode of the Career Change Maker Podcast I am sharing how I made the change from corporate lawyer to career change coach, providing career transition coaching for women.

Once I made the switch I couldn’t help but wonder “what took me so long, and why?”.

I explain the top three reasons we stop ourselves from looking for a better career, and how to overcome them to make your career change.

Summary

What will you learn in this episode:

 

  • Is it possible to switch careers? – Doubt is a big hurdle when trying to transition careers, particularly surrounding salary and skills. Researching the career you are interested in and gathering data will help you gain the confidence to make a mindful career change. 
  • Where to begin? – Considering changing career is confusing, you are leaving what you know and entering a whole new world, so understandably it is hard to decide where to transition to. I explain some advice on where to start when looking for better career opportunities.
  • Recognising the benefits of working in a role you are passionate about – When your role aligns with your passions and values, you will perform so much more effectively, and feel the benefits both professionally and personally.

Episode notes

As an award-winning certified executive and career coach, TEDx speaker, podcast host and former lawyer, I have seen way too many female professionals under selling themselves and settling for less in their careers. I am committed to equipping high achieving women with the tools and support to create careers that are both meaningful and impactful.
