If you’ve been thinking about changing careers, what’s stopping you? Is it fear of losing security? Fear of what people might think? Fear of rejection?
In this episode, I’m interviewing my not-so-baby brother Daryl about his experience changing careers. He’s touching on the challenges of transitioning into a different career as a first-generation immigrant and how he successfully doubled his salary in a completely new field.
We’re also talking about the anxiety that can come with wanting to change careers, and I really want you to hear Daryl’s mindset about going after what you want. I think we can all learn from him.
Get ready for an emotional episode because Daryl knows how to bring out the tears in me!
What we cover in this episode:
- The value of being able to learn and grow
- Getting out of your own head and having conversations with others
Initiating conversations as an introvert
- Exceeding societal expectations
- Honoring our parents’ sacrifices
- Unlearning the importance of safety and security to be able to try something new
- The value of people who will support and mentor you
- Being honest with yourself about what you really want
- Why you should ask for what you want
- How to create boundaries around work
I hope you enjoy getting to know my brother and his career trajectory in this episode. I’m so proud of him for going after what he wants as a way of honoring the generations that came before us.
