121 CDP: Changing Careers in Your 40’s & 50’s

April 6, 2017


Changing Careers…

it’s a pretty common thing now. People have multiple careers over a lifetime and it is becoming more common to make a change in mid-life. (I should know…I did it myself.)

It’s understandable that you might want to do something new…to work at something you want to work at, to follow your passion…to do something you’ve always wanted to do, or even just to have a change of scenery. There are SO many reasons why you might find yourself making a move…but how best to approach what might seem like a daunting proposition?

How to Go About It?

Join me in this podcast episode where I share several points to consider when you are contemplating starting or changing careers in your 40’s and 50’s. Where to begin, where to find information, and how to proceed, and what advantages there are for employers to consider when hiring someone in this age category.

What Might Get in Your Way?

Sometimes we dream up great things we want to do…but that old ghost called fear shows up and stops us. Yeah…that familiar negative, doubt-spewing voice that tells you not to because ____ (fill in the blank.)

Fear of failure is huge. Fear of even getting started is too, and can thwart you before you ever begin….if you let it.

Changing careers at this time in life requires a few things: hard work, dedication, focus, tenacity, and courage. These are probably things you’ve had a little experience in already somewhere in your life…right?

You can do it.

And people are doing it all the time with successful results.
