I’m sending you Happy New Year wishes from Bryron Bay in Australia, where I just saw one of my nerdy teenage crushes - John Farnham at The Falls concert! Whoever your teenage crush, or however you’ve been spending your holiday, I hope that you’ve been enjoying yourself over the festive season - whatever that has looked like to you!
Now, I’m not one for New Year’s Resolutions - but I wondered if you’ve started thinking about what you’d like to achieve in 2020? If you’d like a new job, you are not alone. January and February are the most common times of year for people to start looking for new jobs, and it’s a hot time for people to post those roles they didn’t quite get to earlier before the holidays - so it’s the best time to be looking.
For that reason, I wanted to share with you a very special playlist on my YouTube channel. It’s one that has been developed based on queries that I often receive from Coaching clients of mine.
Switching Careers: Women in Male-Dominated Fields
If you’re planning to switch career in 2020 this playlist is a must-watch. I’ve poured in all the advice that I’ve been giving to Coaching clients over the last 15 years, and I promise it will help take away some of the stresses of switching careers, as so many of my clients have done.
As always, please let me know what you think. I’d love to hear if you have any other suggestions for the playlist - or things that worked well for you when you were switching careers.
Enjoy, and see you when I get back from my birthplace in Oz in 2020.
