Career Journey – #30DS Day 17

I think I’m on my 5th #careerchange by now.

I wanted to throw out that bit of hope for those of you who are looking to change careers.

Looking back, I can see how each of those “final destinations” was but a pit stop on the path I am on today. Each one of those “almost, but not quite” roles was actually NECESSARY as part of my experience for what I do NOW.

It sure didn’t feel like it at the time. Trying to change #careers, and the self-discovery needed to do so, wasn’t always fun. The struggle is real. (And I wish I’d had a #CareerCoach at the time to help me get through it quicker and easier! 🙂 )

But now that I’m through the muck and on the other side? Now that I’m living my #purpose and doing exactly what I’m meant to do?

PRICELESS.

WORTH EVERY STEP.

So please, if you are still searching, don’t give up! Keep going! Don’t try to do it alone like I did – find support, mentors, and a #Career #Coach to help you on your way!
