We’ve now asked hundreds of people who’ve made successful career pivots one question after they’ve completed the journey:
“What advice would you give someone who’s decided they want to make a career change?”
What came back was surprising! It didn’t have anything to do with the best resume ever or the best tactic to market your skills or even the steps to take
Nope! Instead it turns out that all of them described making a career change as a journey and there are far more important advice to consider.
We’ve taken the advice from 6 successful career changers and put it into this episode

Think back to the day of your high school graduation.
Remember the heat. Remember the squirming. Remember the excitement to get out of that place, and move on to something better.
But, for a second think back to the speeches that day. Whether it was your Principal or your Valedictorian (or maybe you!), they all had one thing in common. Each person imparted a piece of wisdom (or warnings) to you and your fellow 18-year-old graduates.
If you’re anything like me, that phrase went in one ear and out the other. You just finished the longest journey of your life: high school. And now, you were jumping out of your seat, although a bit nervous about the unknown, for whatever was to come next.
But then…you got there.
You arrived at that place–any adult milestone really (college, first job, moving to a new city), and this fearful, uneasy thought might have crept into your mind. You try to push it away, but it always comes back: “There mustbe something else out there.”
So, you continue to search. New job, new city. New friends, new relationships.
But it somehow, each step you take still ends up feeling the same.

“Now looking back at it. I never really asked myself the questions of whether I wanted to to do this. It is just normal. Many of us do that.”
That’s what Michal Balass had said when I asked her where her career started.
She went on to explain that she spent years getting her Doctorate and when it came time to get a job she did it without thinking… because that’s what you do! It is normal.
Unfortunately doing things the normal way without question put Michal in the same place many others are.
In a job that isn’t a great fit and doesn’t particularly line up with what you want out of life!
Michal tolerated it for years. (probably for much too long)

How do you know when you’re perfectionism is getting in the way of your progress? Or is it what helps you to be successful. Or is it somewhere in between.
A short while back we released a podcast episode on “perfectionism” and how you might not even know it’s holding you back.
We got great feedback on this episode from many of our listeners. Caroline Adams and I scheduled a followup conversation to debrief on the podcast and what we learned from creating a podcast on perfectionism. Ironically we discovered on creating a podcast on perfectionism that our own perfectionist tendencies had reared their ugly head.
This turned into a private conversation about where perfectionism becomes an issue for both of us. We go deep into where it’s caused challenges for our own lives and work… Even when we began this conversation we never intended it to become a podcast we’re sharing it with you because we also discuss how we each individually handle the perfectionism when it pops up ready to hold us back!

How do you get in touch with people who are incredibly busy that may hold the keys to getting hired at a company you’re excited about, or might be a great mentor for you, or just other people you want to get to know to be able to learn from or can introduce you to other great people?
More than just getting them to respond, how do you get them to be excited to take your call, return your email, or build a relationship with you?
This is a question I’ve been asked thousands of times so I wanted to bring someone on the podcast to help break down exactly how to do this. I asked Darrah Brustein, founder of Network under 40, Equitable Payments, and Financial Whiz Kids who also contributes regularly to Forbes to come on and share her experience on building relationships with busy people!
