Many times people realize that they are not where they should be, doing what they should be doing, but they’re afraid to make a change. They’re afraid of what negative consequences may happen if they make a change. Maybe they make up excuses like:

  • “I can’t quit my job now, I’ve already put in 10 years.”
  • “I only have 5 years until I get to retire.”
  • “I have to make sure to take care of my family, so it’s not the right time.”
  • “What if my boss finds out I’m looking for another job - I’d get fired!”

And I totally get these. It can be scary when you face the unknown.

But, on the other hand, what if the change was actually going to improve your situation - not make it worse? As I’ve worked with thousands of people making career changes, getting over this hurdle is one of the best things that has happened in their lives. They’ve been able to find the work that really fits them. In many cases, they’ve been able to negotiate better salaries and benefits. They’ve been able to spend more quality time with their families.

Our guest today was actually a podcast listener for a long time, and then we had the opportunity to work with her on her recent career change. Moving from Eastern Europe to the UK, Karolina began working as an accountant. Everything was great...for six years.
