If you’ve often felt pulled toward making a career change, but think you’re just too deep in your current line of work to risk transitioning, you’re not alone.

With such an abundance of experience and knowledge to share, mid-career may even be the BEST time for you to make a change.

  1. We only know what we’ve seen and experienced. And if you’ve been in the same company, role, or industry your entire career, you’re limited to what your experiences and knowledge have been.
  2. You create the life you want by going after the possibility and the opportunity.
  3. The risk isn’t in creating change. The risk actually comes from staying in a path that doesn’t align.
  4. Opportunity comes when you seek help from someone who has been there and done that and been able to do the same for others.
