Career Change Reality Check: Busting Myths and Finding Success

Career Change Reality Check: Busting Myths and Finding Success | Flourish Careers Podcast


Can a HEART-Based career change be both exciting and daunting? Absolutely! 

This week’s episode we debunk these top five misconceptions about a career change (plus provide systems to make it more thrilling than terrifying!):

Myth #1: “It’s too late to make a career change.” 

False! Colonel Sanders founded KFC at age 65, proving that age is unrelated to pursuing your HEART-Based career intentions. 

Myth #2: “Making a career change is too difficult or risky.” 

Don’t let fear hold you back from taking the leap! Proper planning, research, and networking can lead to a successful and rewarding career change.  

Myth #3: “A career change means starting from scratch.” 

False! Your transferable skills and experience can be applied to a new career path. Identify those skills and make a successful transition.

Myth #4: “A career change means taking a pay cut.” 

Nope! Do your research, negotiate a fair salary or compensation package, and get paid what you’re worth!

Myth #5: “A career change means returning to school.” 

False! Online courses, workshops, and networking can help you acquire new skills and knowledge without returning to school. Pursue your new path with purpose!

Don’t let these misconceptions keep you from pursuing your HEART-Based career change. Take the leap, use these strategies, and create the fulfilling career you deserve!
