Susan knew her job could be phased out. She came to us when she was trying to figure out what she could do as a side-gig.
She needed something that would earn extra cash in the short term. In the medium to long-term, she wanted the flexibility to scale her work up.
But there were SO MANY options out there.
- She felt her Plan B could be anything:
- She could get her commercial driving license and drive a tour bus.
- She could be a mobile dog groomer.
- She could be a docent at the museum.
Susan had enjoyed a long and successful career, but there was no way that she was ready to retire. She knew that she didn’t want to retrain.
She already had so many skills.
Going back to school is expensive.
She had already had a full and long work life. She didn’t want to start over.
Her Career Clarity Coach helped her to see that she already had a viable side business opportunity that fit with her current skill-set.
She now has a way forward. She can scale up her new business if she needs to and now knows how to do it. Plus, she’s already secured clients for this business through her own network.
Wouldn’t having that kind of forward momentum help you to sleep better at night?
Working with the Cardy Career Coaching team can help you figure it out.
And, be sure to read to the end of the story where Susan shared this advice! “I would tell others not to be afraid. It’s so difficult to sit and live with that anxiety of the future and not have a plan.”
