14: "Nobody Ever Feels 100% Prepared"
"I'm really not happy with my career but I feel super overwhelmed with all the things I need to do in order to make a change happen. The whole thing feels too huge/not possible for me."
I've been there: Paralysis by analysis. Overwhelm. Frustration. Confusion. Knowing you should make a change in your career and actually making that change are two very different things. We often hold ourselves back from moving toward a career we want because we don't feel prepared enough to make all the moves necessary to get there.
In this solo episode, I go over some of the big excuses we come up with for why we're not ready to make a move in our career and offer up some solutions for dealing with those excuses. Whether it's not feeling like you have the right skills, deciding that the time it'd take to get to your dream job is too much, or thinking that you have to know every single step between where you are today and where you want to be, I've got you.
One day today will be twenty years ago, the best time to start working toward a career you love is now.
