Last week I had the opportunity to sit down with a prospect to talk about coaching and I asked her, “How did you learn about me?” Her response made me laugh. She said she Googled, “Why do I hate my job” There was a time in my life when I asked this same question. Why do I hate my job so much? Why am I so miserable? In fact, these questions sparked my own career makeover and the development of the Career Sweet-Spot model.
One of the most common and stressful situations we can find ourselves in is quitting a job or being laid off, and then finding that it takes 3 months or longer before a suitable position comes up. When my family first arrived in Australia, it took nearly 6 months before my husband was fortunate enough to be offered a position that fit his skill sets and experience. With a four-year-old and a baby due, our savings dwindled quickly with rent, a second-hand car, and relocation expenses as we established our new lives.
The decision to change careers can be a time of conflicting and intense emotions. On one hand, you are excited about the chance to start anew, to learn about a different industry, to work on projects that might fit your skill sets and passions better. On the other hand, there are so many unknowns.

A super high achiever that wants it all NOW, or
You’re so dis-satisfied with areas of your life and want massive change NOW!
Then the strategy that gets you quick and massive results needs to be vastly different.

Confused? I was recently running a seminar down in Melbourne and I had a good fortune speaking with a lady who’s in the audience, and she mentioned to me that she’d been sitting at home for well over 3 years virtually immobilized by the fact that she didn’t have unquestionable certainty, and unstoppable determination with absolute – the most highest level of vision and mission possible, and as a result of that she wasn’t able to move any way.
With the Australian Government Workplace Gender Equality Agency 2014 statistics showing women earning 17.5% less than men working full-time, women may need to consider jobs that offer competitive incomes with their male counterparts.
Over the years I have had the good fortune of working with hundreds of entrepreneurs in a coaching and training capacity. During this time I noticed there was a trend with the entrepreneurs that failed. Their common weaknesses were that they didn’t know how to sell nor were they willing to learn.
