What do you like doing?
Does it make an appearance at your day job?
Bringing more of yourself and who you are at your core into your workplace should be mandatory.
If it is the fear of starting fresh in a whole different career or new industry that is stopping you from finding a new path where you can be authentic in your work, don't worry about that. All is not lost as you change careers, every experience counts and the skills you gain throughout your career journey will be carried with you, adding more value to your skill set.
Changing careers to align your work with who you are is not only liberating, but it will also give you better chances for long-term career success and fulfillment.

Listen to our chat with Joanie as she shares her story of leaving her engineering career to live a more authentic life to pursue a career that fueled her passion for helping people while utilizing her strengths in leadership.
