Implement Your Vision
IMPLEMENT YOUR VISION
Now that you have identified a new direction for your career, how do you make it a reality?
Making a change is not easy. It requires commitment, dedication, and a cheer squad for the days you feel discouraged. It requires self-care, initiative, motivation, and being ok with rejection and hearing ‘no’.
But it doesn’t mean that it cannot be done. I believe that all you need is a plan, dedication, and a bit of help from the experts. Don’t be afraid to reach out to a marketing professional, a designer to create your logo or website, or a photographer to take your headshots. You can’t do it all by yourself. Don’t be discouraged by going back to school or needing to take classes. It’s all part of the plan.
YOU HAVE TO START WITH A STRONG PLAN
To help you out, I’ve put together a plan I personally used to transition into a new career. You can access it here and save a new copy for yourself. I’ve used those exact steps to make three successful career transitions to date.
