Fresh off the back of last week's webinar, I've been helping out the lovely people at Careershifters once again as part of their Launchpad programme. Launchpad is an 8 week course in which participants are equipped with the ideas and skills to pursue a career change, a course that I took part in back in 2017.
As an alumni of the course, I was asked to provide three lessons that I believe will be of value to the current course participants. My pearls of wisdom were grouped around the headings of 'big dreams', 'big risks' and 'big patience' (a rather poor attempt at alliteration, I know...). My hope is that what I had to contribute was of value to the partipants as they begin this 8 week journey and that my advice would provide hope, challenge and perspective in some measure.
Above all, it was nice to be able to give something back to try to help those who feel stuck in their present circumstances.
