Diane’s 3 Tips:
- “One, I recommend, before you do anything, look at getting a life coach. Why do you wanna make this change? Look at what could be barriers if you do choose to do this so that you can eliminate barriers, because once you enter a change in career or into a job you’re going to want to be as confident as possible.”
- “The second thing is I would recommend contacting the small business association. They have mentors there. You can do some assessments on seeing where your strength and weaknesses are. If you don’t know exactly what you want.”
- “And then the other thing is there’s a community of resources out there, workshops, um, all kinds of things, webinars that you can take to before you may the final decision to take that leap. And you know, the biggest part is looking at your finances. Are you, can you afford to take this leap in a career job? Is the career change gonna bring more money in and what is it gonna do for you? I really think it should be a thoughtful process and I always would start with a life coach because they’re gonna help map that out for you. And that is gonna feel better. I think because people are making career choices are usually like in their fifties and it’s a scary time to make it, but they’ve had a lifelong passion to do something.”
