Sometimes, the career path we’ve chosen ourselves doesn’t pan out the way we thought it would be.
A Few Takeaways from Episode 82:
- The skills we learned from school or previous jobs will always be useful even if we were to change careers.
- The feeling of jealousy is a signal that we can harness to our advantage (instead of feeling bad about ourselves or others).
- Just because our college education might lead us down one career doesn’t mean we are “stuck” with this path for the rest of our professional life.
- We may not feel 100% confident or have all the skills when we’re starting something new. Surrounding ourselves with the right people could be the difference between making it and quitting.

In this episode, Denise and I talk about why she left what was a “safe career path” to create a business with her husband.
