Why it’s natural for us all to change course.

Have you ever started a job you enjoy only to realize a few months — or years — later that you’re not really loving it anymore? We have a career coach on the podcast today who explains why that happens and why it can actually be a good thing.

This week we had career coach Lisa Lewis on the podcast to talk to us about career transitions. Lisa found herself unhappy in her career and realized that most of her friends were unhappy as well. She wondered, “is this as good as it gets?” But she wasn’t ready to throw in the towel. After searching for answers, she found the natural four-stage career cycle that we all go through. She dispells the myth that there is one perfect career that we will love once we’re able to finally find it. And it’s OK to change course numerour times over the course of your career. 

So if you’ve ever felt in stuck, unhappy with your work, and unclear about how to get out, this episode is for you. 

Lisa kindly shared some great resources just for our listeners on her website lisalewiscareers.com/worth
