We live and work in a very special time.
Today, we have opportunities never before seen. We have more options than our parents and grandparents ever had. We have choices. More than ever before, we now can pursue the work we want to do and reach our highest potential.
But we’re also in very challenging times. This world of ours is changing at breakneck speed. Technology, which has always been a major force in our lives, has accelerated in the past few decades creating massive disruption. New industries are being created; old industries are getting turned upside down.
Change is here to stay.
Navigating a career pivot or a career change is now a must-have skill.
Making a career pivot is a combination of different things: Of pursuing your dreams and aspirations, of choosing yourself and designing your future, and of wanting to take the reins of your career so that you’ll never feel like the rug is pulled from under you.
You don’t have to go it alone.
Second Breaks’ goal is to see you taking control of your career, making your move, and doing the work you’re proud to be doing.
ABOUT LOU BLASER, Founder
Lou’s long career sharpened her focus on leadership, change strategy and implementation. For 15+ years, Lou worked as a management consultant for PricewaterhouseCoopers, where she served clients with challenging business problems and diverse objectives. This was followed by a strategy/operations leadership role in a global medical device firm. In addition to some pretty serious analytical, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, these experiences gifted her a unique peek-behind-the-curtains view of companies across a variety of industries—all of which now serve her well as she works to support individuals achieve their career objectives.
Lou has been an amazing supporter and advisor throughout my career profession and evolution. What I most appreciate about Lou is her direct, ‘no sugar-coating’ advice with the sole purpose of helping you push yourself and succeed in ways you never imagined for yourself. I value her support, her positivity and the thought that goes into the candid feedback she provides. Having Lou as a champion as I took a leap into a radically different phase in my professional career has meant the world to me. —G. Ramirez-Elyea
