It takes a large amount of time to do a career pivot - and even more time to make the bigger changes that we discuss often on this podcast. Even though you end up with a role that fits you and delivers what you really want in your life, it can be difficult to find the time to make it happen. But you’ll never “find” enough time - you have to create the time.

Phillip Migyanko and I discuss specific tactics that you can use to create 30+ hours a month to focus on your highest priorities.

Many people seem to get lucky in life - they get the best jobs, the best houses, the best cars.

That’s because the science of happiness works whether you are intentional or not. 

To get the best results, though, you must be intentional in your actions surrounding your life and career.

Ninety-five percent of times people approach career change with limiting beliefs. Sometimes the career you’re working in for nearly a decade or more, doesn’t line up with your true calling and you feel as if you’ve wasted time, so now you want to do a career pivot. 

But instead of asking ourselves, “what career fits me and how can I get it?” We ask ourselves the wrong questions first, such as “how am I going to transition to a new career when I have no experience in that career?”

The result? More time wasted fearing the unknown and possibly giving up hope before starting.

In this HTYC episode, Scott Anthony Barlow sits down with his guest, Cesar, who had several roadblocks, mental barriers and limiting beliefs that he had to overcome before starting his career change journey and he’ll share how he was able to achieve career growth and career happiness from successfully switching industries from legal to nonprofit.
