Have you ever wondered what the right time is to pursue different work?

Sometimes it's painfully clear! (we work with people every day that have some serious disdain for their jobs)

But what if it's not as obvious? What if you actually like your job and just aren't sure if you should be pursuing something more meaningful... or what if you have multiple opportunities but aren't sure how to measure which one would be better for you.?

This is exactly the question that we just faced just recently when setting out the goals for the rest of this year and into next year!

How do you know when it's time to move on to something else?

This is hard, even for us (and it's kind of what we do here at Happen to Your Career.)

In this episode You learn

  • When it's past time for you to leave your job or your business
  • How to know what the warning signs are
  • What to actually do about it!
