Lessons I Learned During the Scary Business of Changing Careers

The ride to this station in my professional life was, at times, very bumpy, very unclear, and often very terrifying. I’m grateful for the time I had to learn things the hard way even though I couldn’t see how important that was at the time that I was learning. So what do you do if you want to change careers? It’s scary for sure but here are some lessons that helped me a lot then and continue to help me even now.
