When is the best time to create
YOUR dream career?
This time two years ago, I handed in my notice, leaving behind a great job, a great company and one of the best bosses I'd ever had. That ended a 20 year career where I'd gone from graduate trainee to a Global Head of Performance role in one of the largest, most respected companies in the world.
And no, I'm not crazy.
It was a great job. But it no longer made me feel great. So I took the leap and I left. With no payout, and nowhere to go. But I had a dream, a dream I discovered I'd buried many years before.
I was sorting through our loft that same year, and came across a piece of paper that had been written some 10 years previously - before the arrival of my first son. A single page headed up 'Career Coach', with a couple of simple action steps scribbled down.
That was the beginnings of the dream - but somehow in the midst of kids, and house moves, and mortgage payments and family life, it got shoved so far down the pecking order that I actually forgot it existed. It was at that moment that I knew this was 'My Thing' and had always been 'My Thing'.
Just maybe the time hadn't felt right before. But when is the right time to walk out on a well-paid, secure job to chase your dream, and start living your passions? Is it never? Or is it now?
For me it was that very day. And I haven't looked back. Fast-forward to now, where I have the honour every day of helping people identify, land and love careers that are just perfect for them.
So whether your dream is taking that next step up the corporate ladder, changing career path entirely, or even starting your own business like I did; ask yourself, "If not now, when?"
