Prepare for a career change

Career change, are you ready for yours? I can’t even tell you how often I work with clients who are desperate to change careers because they stayed in their job too long. They’ve resisted change and turned a blind eye to the fact that they have grown out of their role and then they’re unhappy and unfulfilled.

This creates massive stress and frustration for my clients and sometimes impulsive decisions to quit their jobs!

Why does this happen:

What you resist persists and eventually, you go into catastrophe thinking of simply running away to solve the problem.

The problem with this way of living: you take yourself with you!

So unless you take the time to actually do some soul searching and really figure out:

A: Who you are
B: What you enjoy doing
C: What you’re good at
D: What your purpose are
E: And then marrying all four

 

You’ll be in many many different roles but end up in the same situation!

 

Even when you do figure all of this out you’ll have to remember that life is EVER CHANGING!

So if you’re happy in your role right now, expect and be willing to grow and accept change.

When you operate from this level you’ll know exactly when it’s time to move up and reach for that next level job and you’ll never overstay your welcome in a role or have to make desperate and impulse decisions. You’ll advance your career with purpose, intention and inevitably be more successful!

So STOP thinking that once you land a new job you’ll be happy there forever!

Start to realize: YOU WILL OUTGROW any role you have eventually due to personal changes or your own career ambition and growth.

Prepare yourself for these career changes by:

  • Starting to really hone in on what makes you happy, what is it that you want for your life and your career. (As I mentioned in my blog entry “You can do it, even Harvard said so”, early research are showing that people who are most successful and fulfilled in their careers are people who always make decisions based on what makes them happy.
  • Stop playing copycat with your peers. Get creative, break free from the normal 9-5 and dare to step into a less ordinary career if it makes you happy.
  • Always keep your linkedIn account and resume updated (you never know who’s looking for you).
  • Always connecting with interesting people in careers you respect and admire.

(spoiler alert: I do all of this with my Ultimate Career Bootcamp participants.)

Fact: According to Forbes millennials will change jobs between 15-20 times during their careers.

 

That means:  Everyone, including you, will make a career transition eventually.

 

ONLY You hold the power to make it a seamless and successful transition.

Now I’d like to hear from you: How do you cope with change? What surprise career transition have you made in your life? Please leave all your comments and questions in the comments below.

Even Forbes gives 7 reasons why you should join my Mastermind!

One of the hardest things about being in business for yourself is staying motivated and knowing what the right course of action is to grow your business.

Being your own boss can be very isolating and overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. With a small group of hand selected ladies and a business coach at your fingertips who meet bi-weekly to help you brainstorm and discuss topics that are specifically tailored towards your business needs, you can grow your business significantly, while still maintaining balance and joy!

This is exactly what happens in my Savvy Success Masterminds.

Forbes agree that you should join this mastermind! Here are their seven reasons why you must have a mastermind group at your fingertips:

“1. You’ll be part of an exclusive community. Participating in a mastermind typically involves you being invited by the members or going through an application process. The other members need you just as much as you need them, so the quality of experience and knowledge is crucial to all involved.

2. Advisement. Once you are engaged in a mastermind, that feeling of “being alone” while running your business is gone. The other members of the group turn into business advisors of sorts and vice versa.

3. Collaboration is the name of the game. You may find someone in the group that is a perfect fit to work on a project with you. Or, you may be the perfect person to help another member as well. The group works together collaboratively, to achieve more together.

4. Extend your network. Joining a mastermind expands your network exponentially and rapidly. If you are in business, you know how important your network is. By participating in a mastermind, you instantly add to your network and typically gain the networks of those in the group with you.

By interacting and sharing your challenges, it’s almost certain that someone in your mastermind will have a solution for you and you may also be able to offer a solution, connection or tactic to help another in the group.

6. Cross-promotion. When you join a mastermind, you will most likely find ways to help each other by utilizing cross promotion. Finding ways to help each other through promoting to your respective networks.
