We’ll discuss the importance of paying attention to your professional desires and ways to rekindle your relationship with your own work. After our conversation, during today’s Mental Fuel, I explain what I do to keep my own work exciting and interesting.

\n

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. Starting is the hardest part, especially when you cross paths with people who question and challenge your plans.
  2. \n
  3. You have to pay attention to what you actually enjoy so you can then transform those desires into something valuable.
  4. \n
  5. Our careers are like marriages. Routines can take over, so you have to find a way to rekindle your relationship with your work. It’s difficult to do great work when you’re bored.

How can you survive the ups and downs of a bumpy career journey? In this episode of Career Relaunch, Jamie Love a former house cleaner turned professional photographer shares her thoughts on how to deal with hitting rock bottom and how your mindset can have a direct impact on the trajectory of your career. I’ll also explain how I’ve thought about my own self-worth, especially as it relates to pricing my services as a self-employed consultant.

\n

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. Believing in your own self-worth is such a critical part of being able to promote yourself to others.
  2. \n
  3. You don’t have to have everything figured out, especially where you want to focus your energies, when you’re embarking on a new path on your career or starting your own business. You can put out a range of feelers to see what ends up gaining traction with both your audience and also yourself.
  4. \n
  5. Clinging to a negative mindset and outlook related to your career and life will likely not serve you well and can in fact lead to a downward spiral of even more negative events.

Listener Challenge

\n

\"\"So my challenge to you is to put yourself out there, and start charging what you feel you’re worth, even if you don’t feel 100% ready yet. I’m talking about putting a price on something valuable you’ve been doing for free. And once you’ve done that, to NOT apologize for what you’re offering. To not feel like someone’s doing you a favour by paying you for this. Instead, help that person feel good about what they’re buying by proudly and unapologetically describing the value you know you’re providing.

About Jamie Love, Photographer

\n

\"Jamie-Love-Career-Relaunch\"Jamie Love is a creative visionary and home-schooling mother who owns and operates Jamie Love Photography, a portrait studio based in Ithaca, NY. She completed her BFA in Photography and Digital Imaging from the Ringling College of Art and Design in 2003. Afterwards, she became a single mother to three children and dug herself out of the trenches of self-loathing and abusive relationships. She tapped into her own difficult journey toward self-love to create to a career focused on empowering and inspiring her clients through dream portrait experiences that celebrate their strengths.

\n

Her latest project is the The Senior Empowerment Collective. Many photographers have what they call “brand ambassadors” people who promote their business. She decided that she wanted to do a different spin on this and create a mutually beneficial relationship with her high school teen clients. Because the teenage years can be cruel to our self esteem, the Senior Empowerment Collective is a group of local teens who learn self love practices through their senior portrait experience. They have the opportunity to model and boost their self confidence with a larger organization “The Model Network National,” and locally, Jamie provides them with volunteer hours in the community, and works to create a portrait experience that celebrates their uniqueness.

\n

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. While working for a reputable, well-known company can be quite alluring, you have to invest the time necessary to ensure your life there will truly align with your broader career goals.
  2. \n
  3. Creating some distance between you and your job can provide you with the headspace to figure out exactly where you want to take your career.
  4. \n
  5. Mirroring the exact language an organization uses to describe their mission and culture in your own job search materials can help you stand out in a very precise manner with those organizations.
  6. \n
  7. Don’t forget that there will always be other opportunities for you. Your narrative isn’t limited to only how you’re defined within your current organization.

Listener Challenge

\n

\"\"During this episode’s Mental Fuel segment, I talked about the importance of stopping and reflecting on your career. My challenge to you was to carve out some time, ideally in the next week, when you’ll commit to taking a moment to pause. I’m talking about getting away from your devices and any distractions, creating some momentary distance between you and your work, and dedicating some time to just being by yourself to reflect on your career and where it’s headed.

\n

Then, take a stance on whether you career is or is NOT moving in a direction you want it to. If if is, great. Double down on an activity that’s been serving you especially well. But if it’s not, I’d like you to reflect on how long you’ll continue to tolerate working in a way that doesn’t truly fulfil you.

\n

If you’re looking for some contemplative music to help you do that, one of my favourite artists to listen to when I’m feeling rather pensive is Max Richter. Give a listen to his songs on Spotify.

\n

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. While your job may have suited you in the past, it doesn’t mean that same job will continue to suit the person you’ve evolved to become.
  2. \n
  3. The harder you work, the luckier you may get (building off a quote about the relationship between work and luck from film producer Samuel Goldwyn).
  4. \n
  5. You don’t necessarily have to change everything or make a drastic move to create the career and life you want. You could start small, doing something on the side, or testing the waters in a way that’s low-risk.

My challenge to you is to think about the upcoming year (or 2 or 3) as a distinct chapter in you career. And if you were to name this chapter, what would it be called? What do you want it to be about? Is it about gaining more responsibility at work? Is it about achieving a certain level of visibility? Is it about something totally different outside of work? Like independence. Family. Fitness? Social life? Personal growth? Once you decide what you want to be about, take one action that focuses you on this priority.

\"CR052_Letting-Go_Karen-Cheung-Hing\"

In this episode of Career Relaunch, Karen Cheung-Hing, a former doctor turned English pronunciation teacher, shares her thoughts on procrastination, relocating to a new country, and upside of changing careers. I also share some thoughts what happened when I let go of how I thought things should look in my career.

\n

Karen and I first crossed paths after she attended one of my career change talks in London. She later applied to be on the show, and I found her story to be really refreshing and unique. I could also relate a bit to some of her sentiments about leaving medicine behind because I also walked away from a career in medicine many years ago. I hope you enjoy hearing her career change insights.

\n

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. You may not have a clear moment of epiphany that you should move on from your current role. Instead, it may just be a lingering feeling that things won’t get any better and that you owe it to yourself to at least try to do something else that you truly enjoy.
  2. \n
  3. You can’t fully compartmentalize your personal and professional lives. They’re interconnected, and if you’re feeling dissatisfaction in your career, it may be worth considering whether something in your personal life is affecting your career and vice-versa.
  4. \n
  5. There’s a fine line between procrastination and just not wanting to do something. How do you feel inside when you think of the project.
  6. \n
  7. Although moving locations and even countries may seem like a drastic change, you may be surprised at just how similar your day-to-day life may be, especially since much of our lives are now online.
  8. \n
  9. Letting go of your fixed ideas about outcomes can really lift a lot of stress from your life and allow you to feel better.

Listener Challenge

\n

\"\"During this episode’s Mental Fuel segment, my challenge to you as you kick off 2019, is to not necessarily think about which goal or outcome you want to achieve but to instead think about which goal or outcome it’s about time you let go of, which is equally important. Think about something you’ve been a bit too obsessively focused on, reconsider what difference achieving that outcome would REALLY make to your career or life, and if the difference is negligible, let it go so you can make room for something else.

\"CR051_Creating-Image_Deepak-Shukla\"

Have you ever met someone who used to be a tax accountant then became a rapper? Me neither. But that’s exactly what our guest on this week’s Career Relaunch episode did. Deepak Shukla, a former Deloitte tax accountant turned rapper and SEO agency founder shares his thoughts on what it’s like to break into a new industry when you don’t exactly look the part. We’ll also talk about putting yourself out there, dealing with judgement, and focusing on the future rather than the past. I’ll also address a listener question about balancing your current role and identity with your future ambitions.

\n

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. Just because you don’t make it in a certain industry doesn’t mean that the experience was for nothing.
  2. \n
  3. You have to courageously put yourself out there to at least give yourself the opportunity to succeed. This helps you become better and more effective with your work.
  4. \n
  5. The only way to build up your tolerance to judgement and critique is to put yourself in situations where you HAVE to face this . . . so you can get used to it.
  6. \n
  7. Minimize the amount of time and effort you devote to analysizing what went wrong during a failure and instead try to focus on the actions you can take to do better next time.

We talked on the show about how you shouldn’t be overly concerned with other’s opinions of your career progress or trajectory. This article in the Book of Life entitled No One Cares is a good reminder that we should focus more on what choices make sense for us rather than what others think of those choices.

Listener Challenge

\n

\"\"During this episode’s Mental Fuel segment, I challenged you to think about where you wanna be 12 months from now. What sort of work do you wanna be doing more of? What sort of projects do you want filling your time? How do you want to be spending more of your days?

\n

Once you’re clear on where you see your professional life a year from now, try to embrace one new behaviour that’s consistent with that future. Act like the person you hope to become rather than the person you have been in the past. It could be devoting a little more time to that side project you wanna have as your full-time job. Or simply changing how you introduce yourself. Or investing in that training that creates a bridge from your current work to your future work.

How do things REALLY turn out when you make the brave decision to relaunch your career? Do things actually end up working out? Or does leaving behind a stable career end up coming back to bite you? In this very special 50th episode of Career Relaunch, I’m excited to welcome back Kelly Cara to the show. Kelly was my very first guest when this podcast launched back in Sept 2016, and she was voted by listeners as the guest they most wanted to hear from again.

\n

We’re going to check in with her to hear how things have actually turned out for her since she made the decision to leave her job behind as an educational researcher in Springfield, Missouri to become a nutrition researcher, educator, and health-supportive chef in Austin, Texas after finishing culinary school. We’ll talk about doing work you love, the impact of money on your choices, and when to move onto the next chapter of your career . . . even if you’ve just recently made a change.

\n

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. After you make a leap once, it becomes easier to make another leap in your life because you will have built up that muscle.
  2. \n
  3. When you’re feeling motivated to do something, it’s important to take an action that seizes on that motivation because you may not have a similar level of motivation down the road.
  4. \n
  5. There’s more to wealth and richness than how much money you make. The richness of your life is also driven by the fulfillment and satisfaction you gain from the work you’ve chosen to dedicate your energies to.

  4. \n

About JB Adkins, Pilot & Founder of Skyryde

\n

\"JB-Adkins-Skyryde\"

\n

JB Adkins grew up in a large family with 16 siblings. He started flying at age 11 and eventually began his career at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University on a military scholarship. He decided to leave that behind to work in entertainment, music video production, & advertising before bouncing back into aviation to eventually start a string of companies in the field. Along the way, he encountered tremendous obstacles and pitfalls, from being homeless for 5 months with his wife after they had a baby to making the decision to live in an RV full-time to save and invest in his new business, Skyryde, a flying taxi service startup that could change the way people move around cities.

\"CR047_Serving-Others_Shawn-Askinosie\"

When you’ve had a successful run in your career, leaving it behind can be especially difficult. So how can you tell when it’s time to make a change even when you’re good at what you do? In this episode of Career Relaunch, Shawn Askinosie explains how he relaunched his 20-year career as a criminal defense lawyer to found his own chocolate company. We’ll discuss how your intuition can be more precise than your logic and how to create the space you need to make a clear decision about your career. Afterwards, during today’s Mental Fuel segment, I’ll talk about how serving others helped ME figure out where to take my own career.

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. How your body feels physically can send you clues about your job satisfaction that you may not be able to fully rationalize logically. Pay attention to the signals your body is trying to tell you.
  2. \n
  3. Don’t get lost in endless research. It can paralyze you and send you into a bottomless pit of choice. You have to also allow yourself to just listen to your own intuition.
  4. \n
  5. If you’re feeling stuck about what to do next in your career, shifting the focus from yourself to serving someone else can create some space in your mind for the answers to come more naturally to you.

\"\"During this episode’s Mental Fuel segment, I talked about how I myself gained some clarity when I was feeling confused about where to take my career. In line with Shawn’s advice, I challenged you to find some way to serve someone, ideally in a way that relates to your unique skills, strengths, or interests. It can be something simple. It can be something small. But just some way to help someone else out in a way you also find gratifying. If you can carve out some time to do it, you might be surprised where it ends up taking you.

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. Stability is nice, but at some point, you have to decide whether that stability is fulfilling enough for you.
  2. \n
  3. You are always going to face obstacles when you’re starting down a new path. You just have to keep talking to more people to figure out away around those obstacles. You can’t give up because you never know when you’re going to stumble upon the right person who can open a door for you.
  4. \n
  5. Fear and excitement are related feelings, especially when you’re doing something you never thought you would be doing. Face it. Embrace it.

One of the things Chris and I spoke about on this episode was being true to yourself and making the most of who you are at work. This topic is especially relevant if you’re one of those people wrestling with whether or not to “just be myself” at work or flex who you are to meet the specific standards and expectations of your organization, even if that means NOT being yourself. This article from Fast Company entitled Should You Hide Your Personality at Work touches on this.

  7. So much of your identity can be wrapped up in your job. It’s a big piece of who you are and a sense of purpose. Just recognizing this can help you understand what may be keeping you in a job you don’t necessarily enjoy.

About Rei Lim

\n

\"ReiRei Lim started off as a professional musician. At first, he felt like the luckiest guy, making a living out of his passion. But 4 years into the job, he woke up one day and realized he needed to pick up another skill because being a musician was not viable for him in the long run. He ended up picking up digital marketing and fell in love with it. After freelancing for four years, he now works as a digital marketer for a global pharmaceutical company. On the side, he also runs an online magazine about beauty aesthetics called Fairy Marraine.

\"CR041_Following-Intuition_Victoria-Crandall\"

Where should you be devoting your energies as a professional? Part of answering that question involves getting clear on which endeavors you feel naturally drawn toward. Former journalist Victoria Crandall shares her unique journey of leaving the US to become a managing director of a cocoa exporter in the Ivory Coast. We’ll talk about the power of curiosity and using your natural interests as a way of guiding your career choices. In the Mental Fuel segment, I’ll also explain the importance of identifying your professional  “center of gravity.”

\n

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. We all have things we’re naturally drawn toward in life. The key is to pay attention to what you keep returning to again and again as a clue to where you could take your career.
  2. \n
  3. We live in an age where incredible amounts of information are available at our fingertips. This information can be such a powerful enabler for the change you desire for your career.
  4. \n
  5. “Learning on the job is riddled with uncertainty and is therefore uncomfortable, even painful. But, if you’re willing to embrace the discomfort of making mistakes and adopt a growth mindset, you will benefit immensely.” -Victoria Crandall, guest on Episode 41

You can also help me pick the guest who returns for episode 50.

\n

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. Making your desired career change may involve “an imperfect start.” Sometimes, the process of getting where you want to go is a little bit clunkier than that.
  2. \n
  3. Your ability to achieve your career pivot is going to directly relate to your ability to deal with and quickly bounce back from rejection. Rejection is not a sign you’re on the wrong path, but instead is just part of the process.
  4. \n
  5. To move beyond the career you’ve had, you have to adopt a mind-set that says, “My past isn’t going to dictate my future.” Where you truly believe that you actually CAN take your career in a different direction. Because, before you can work on convincing others of your new path, you have to first convince yourself.

  2. \n
  3. Don’t remain too rigidly attached to your original goals. Listen to what you need and what others need, then adjust.
  4. \n
  5. Sometimes, you need to get out of your own way and stop fighting against the natural evolution of your career.

Listener Challenge

\n

\"\"During this episode’s Mental Fuel segment, I talked about the importance of not overextending yourself. Consider whether or not the goals you’re pursuing are coming at the cost of your own happiness. My challenge to you is get very clear on what the metric of “success” that allows you to work in a way that’s sustainable and enjoyable. What exact level of income, title, lifestyle, work-life balance, or time with people you love do you need to feel happy? Try to give yourself permission to be okay with not necessarily achieving everything, but rather, enough to make you happy in those areas of your life that matter most.

In this episode of Career Relaunch, Redd Horrocks, a former circus stage manager turned professional voiceover artist  shares her thoughts on how to choose the right professional pursuits, the importance of saying “no,” and how you can tap into online marketplaces to build your freelance business.  I also share some thoughts on why saying “no” is so important to building your personal brand.

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. As a freelancer, feeling like your clients or business could suddenly disappear is a very common feeling.
  2. \n
  3. Planning is useful, but you should also stay focused on the present. Don’t look too far ahead. Things can always get better or worse, and it’s not always easy to tell.
  4. \n
  5. You don’t have to be hustling all the time. You have to make sure you practice some self-care so you don’t burn out on the business you’re trying to grow. It’s okay to say “no.”

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. You can get feedback from people who are close to you, people in your peer group, and someone further along in their career who can provide more experienced perspectives on your situation. Tap into your strengths, but be aware of your vulnerabilities.
  2. \n
  3. Even weak connections can be incredibly fruitful and open up new opportunities. Take the time to expand your network because you never know who can open up the next door for you.
  4. \n
  5. To expand and maintain your professional network, you have to invest the time to keep your contacts “warm,” so try to build in some sort of a ritual to make reconnecting a habit.

\"CR032_Moving-On_Rina-Einy\"

What is the life of a professional tennis player REALLY like? Former professional tennis player Rina Einy who’s played in the Australian Open, US Open, Wimbledon and the Olympics, gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the realities of being a professional athlete, why she decided to move on from tennis to become a finance professional, and how to balance your career choices with your personal relationships. In the Mental Fuel® segment, I’ll explain why quitting is sometimes the best thing you can do for your career and life.

\n

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. Certain professions can look much more glamourous from the outside looking in than they actually are in reality.
  2. \n
  3. You have to consider whether you still have something left to “prove” in your current career path. If you don’t, perhaps it’s time to move on.
  4. \n
  5. Your career path will always be a balancing act between your professional aspirations and personal priorities. Tradeoffs are inevitable, so you have to be willing to make those difficult choices that compromise one for the other.

\"CR026_Deciding-Matters_Bruce-Daisley\"

What have you spent your time chasing in your career? Fancy titles? The role of CEO? The opportunity to say you manage a huge team of X people? Have you ever stopped to think about why those things matter to you so much? What drives you to focus on that goal?

\n

In this 1-year anniversary episode of Career Relaunch, Bruce Daisley, Vice President of Twitter, EMEA shares his insights on drivers of happiness in the workplace and the motivations behind his own career shifts from Google & YouTube to Twitter. In the Mental Fuel® segment, I’ll explain how focusing on the wrong driver of happiness initially led me astray in my own career and the realization I had that got me back on track.

\n

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. Job titles and material possessions may create short term bursts of happiness, but they don’t lead to true, long term happiness.
  2. \n
  3. What creates happiness at work is not what people give you, but rather, what you accomplish.
  4. \n
  5. Happiness is a direct output of what you pay attention to. So pay attention to those things that are truly important.

Hear about the the limitations of always playing it safe and why the ability to handle rejection can be such an incredibly powerful asset during your career. Andy Whelan shares his story of how he relaunched his career from being an actor to a small business owner and eventually a career coach. Afterwards, I’ll share my thoughts on how I manage rejection in my own life and career.

\n

Key Career Insights

\n
    \n
  1. When you’re thinking about career change, try to focus on the people you’re going to serve or the value you’ll have an opportunity to provide rather than just focusing on what you gain.
  2. \n
  3. Our tendency to avoid pain can prevent us from truly pushing the boundaries of our career and finding work we find more meaningful.
