Find (And Keep!) Energy & Time for Your Career Change.
The Career Passport Podcast is HERE!!!! Here’s the basic premise of the podcast – I actually don’t believe it’s necessary to have a dream job. In some cases, it’s just not possible at the moment or with the circumstances. And that’s ok. I know, it sounds crazy, given the messages we get all the live long day to ‘have it all’ and ‘build your dream life.’ Heck, I used to run workshops called “Snag Your Dream Job….and Life in the Process!”. NOPE. It’s ok to just LIKE your job so you can pour your LOVE into the rest of your life…and who knows, maybe you’ll end up loving your job in the process. THAT, my friend, is my jam. Takes some of the pressure off, doesn’t it? We’re all running around all the time trying to make everything “just so”…what if we didn’t have to??
We have some good stuff happening with regular series including:
- Day in the Life Series: One of the biggest worries out there when it comes to career transition is “What if I do all this, and then I hate the job? I don’t actually know what it’s like!” SO, I’m interviewing people who do specific jobs to get SUPER granular on what they do all day, so you can see what it’s actually like to do the job
- Holistic Help: I’m all about how all the areas of our life connect in very deep ways, so I’m interviewing people who can help you have a healthier life in mind, body, soul, finances- you name it. We’ll be talking about
- Career #RealTalk: I’m having guest talk about networking and personal narrative and sometimes I’ll be on air by myself giving you tools and tips on a specific career related topic. Think blog but…podcast. Each episode has a tool you can use to incorporate the lessons of the episode so you can build upon what you already know!
- Reader Questions: I’m answering listener questions live on the air so email email@example.com to submit one!
Ok, so now let’s get to the first episode. Let’s face it: career change or pivoting your current career is not always easy, and there can be many rough spots throughout the transition. “What if no one responds to me?”, “Work is so busy; I don’t have time for this!” and many other thoughts, feelings and emotions pop up during this time, and oftentimes, they can stagnate even the most motivated among us.
SO: How exactly do we keep our career change moving when life gets in the way? In this episode, I break down the three things you need and how to go out and get ‘em: a clear head, a calm work environment and a plan.
