Changing your career can be the smartest thing you ever do if you are like most people and the career path you are currently on was (and is) not your passion.
Life is too short to spend time doing things that do not energize you, especially if those things take up over a third of your daily activities.
Most people’s first job was to make some money to pay off student loans or to put food on the table and to have a table to put the food on. They ended up staying in that job or career type because it was easier to stay than to actually do what they love.
Being laid off, downsized, or fired as it used to be called in the old days can be a blessing.
Yes, if you have no job, hence no income, you will need to find a JOB, but during that process, do work in what you are passionate about. Volunteer or get on the Internet and start your own web business.
Most people will need help to do this so look for a way to work with others to help scaffold you while you are learning the ropes.
Through networking you can find other people who have the skills you need to build your web presence and perhaps they may need your expertise to help them.
If you have the right scaffolding and collaborate with the right people you may not need to start back doing that dreaded JOB you never liked in the first place.
We are entering a New Economy and people need, no they must, be aware of this major paradigm shift or they will be swallowed up by it.
We need to seriously consider 3 things:
1. We must learn to spend less and save more,
2. We must look inward, discover our passion in life and build on that,
3. We must begin a business using our passion to build a secondary income. This may just turn into a full-time business if you have the right scaffolding.
I will discuss more about how to find the right scaffolding for you to uncover your passion and to make money by sharing it with others.
