What is Your Job Change Reason?

What is Your Job Change Reason?

What is your job change reason? I happen to have a strong opinion about this question, because I had to answer it in a big way when I left my corporate job and became a coach. Learn a bit about my journey and the simplest answer to that question in this audio clip.

The only job change reason you need is that you aren’t happy at your current job.

My path to becoming a career coach came about as a result of my having one very big job change reason…

My job was killing me!

My announcement to leave was unexpected by my co-workers and friends because the job I left had a lot of perks.

I was Director of Marketing at a prestigious company. I had a great salary, a fancy title, and lots of amazing opportunities and invitations, among other perks. I had worked my entire career to get to where I was.

The big problem was, my soul was leaking out of me. I was working 6-7 days a week. I had very little personal life. My health was suffering. I was experiencing stress symptoms that wouldn’t go away. In a nutshell, I was miserable.

I realized that no amount of money or perks were worth my physical and mental well being, or my life (because I truly believe that leaving that job saved my life).

After some soul searching and inner work, I ended up becoming a career and money breakthrough coach, and I have never looked back.

I am actually the coach now that I needed all those years ago when I left my corporate job. I quit without having another job, which is something I do not advise my clients to do. But, like I said, I desperately needed a coach.

The good news is, I was able to discern what my dream job was and then go for it.

I did that by getting introspective and evaluating my skills and talents. I realized coaching is the perfect job for me based on my truth, and on the things I do and don’t want to do. It is in alignment with my essence, and even though I work really hard, it doesn’t feel like work. It feels like joy.

Today, I support burned out professionals who are just going through the motions.

I help them undertake the same process I undertook to discover the work they are most passionate about, based on their skills and talents, and in alignment with their truth.

So that’s why I say you only need one job change reason. I want everyone to experience having a job that brings them joy, and I know that, with the right process, anyone can do it.
