Did you know before I turned 28, I’d been fired three times and quit two jobs? I’ve changed careers a few times, actually! Sometimes by choice and sometimes… not (lol).
Right after college, I worked in campaigns — working as a grassroots organizer and fundraiser living in 6 different states: California, Iowa, Indiana, Montana, Massachusetts, and New Mexico.
I was on a weekly flight to big cities like DC, NYC, and Chicago.
I made a name for myself, then realized the career I built — I just hated it. It didn’t align with my values, me, and the work-life balance I wanted. I was missing out on family birthday parties and being with friends.
I found and figured out how to find a new career — working as a fundraiser at Pasadena City College. I found my dream job with the corner office, 6-figures, and a dream team. I didn’t have the “I hated my job before I started my coaching business.”
In my most recent episode, I spoke with my client, Ava, who also successfully found a new career path at the Department of Justice, a move that aligned with her values and renewed her joy.
We discussed her challenges during the process, the steps she took to find the right job for her, and how you can do this process yourself!
So, if you’re feeling lost and need guidance, this episode is for you.
Ava and I share our journey of finding a career path that perfectly aligns with our values and work-life balance.
