A lot of the work I do as a Career Coach is with professionals who are changing careers completely.

Whether it’s turning from an Event Planner to a Hollywood Make-Up Artist, or a from a Brand Strategist to an Entrepreneur, I help them implement strategies to reach their goals.

But sometimes in this process, you simply need to hear a good testimonial. By hearing what other people went through, you can pick up practical advice through their experience that compliments the strategic advice someone like myself can give you.

Enter this story featured in Forbes. The writer breaks down basics like saving money, opening up more time in your schedule, and learning from and enjoying the process.

These are very good things for someone who is approaching a career change to consider, appropriately setting up expectations.

Check out the article, and let me know YOUR thoughts on the advice.

    For me the key to a successful career change was going back to school and getting a Math degree, and then using that schooling on some subprojects where I worked. I was a meat cutter for six years. I had dropped out of college, marries with one child. And one day in 1988 I decided the career as a meat cutter was not going to make it for me. So I decided to go back to school at night and finish my degree. With the indulgence of my wife to give me the time and money I needed, I earned my B.A. in Math in 1991. While earning this degree, I dove into programming. At the same time, my boss at the company I worked for wanted to put a lot of the office work for his company on a computer for ease of management. With his investment in a single PC and allowing me time to create Excel Spreadsheets and macros to create orders, AR and AP, this led to valuable experience for me. In a way I was lucky to have a boss to grant me this opportunity, but being successful is all about taking advantage of opportunities when they arise.
