It's never too late to catch your second career wind.
I was having lunch with a friend today who told me about her friend who became a flight attendant after raising her two kids. At the age of 50, she made her dreams come true.
What's preventing you from achieving your dream job?
Are you buying into the mantra that at your age, no one will hire you?
Are you ready to do whatever it takes to pivot successfully?
Here are some tips to help you make a career jump feel less daunting:
1. Fully commit to making a change.
2. Be realistic in terms of how long it will take for you to land your dream position.
3. Get rid of the naysayers in your life who are telling you that you'll never be able to pivot.
4. Find a coach who can guide you through the process of successfully making a career transition.
Enjoy the journey!

Are you unsure what career path to pursue?
Were you recently laid off or in between jobs and need a better direction on which types of jobs would be best suited for you?
Do you think you have too many interests and aren't sure which is the better route to go?
Are you curious to know what my career proprietary career personality test would recommend for you even though you know you're on the right path?
Or did you finally just recently obtain a job to pay to the bills, but is temporary and/or something you're not going to do long-term and would like to see what other options are out there?
If you said "Yes" to any of my questions above, I've got a proprietary 64-question career personality test that can provide a detailed analysis of your personality, at least 4 recommended career fields for you, & how my test is different than others you've taken is that mine will also provide recommended training for your recommended career fields. So, for example, if "Technology" was one of your recommended career fields with my test, my test would suggest you could attend DeVry University for training.
This test is normally with sales tax & the credit/debit card fee included (recall the processing fee I'm charged to process your payment when paying with a debit/credit card so that I can net my actual rate), $149.20 but until 11:55 pm Pacific Standard Time TOMORROW, Thursday, March 3, 2022 you can get my test for 50% off which would be $75.11.
After taking your test and looking at your results, you can *optionally* decide to debrief & consult with me by asking me any questions you may have via a phone call that we would schedule. This *optional* consulting would be available at a rate of $2 per minute plus the debit/credit card fee I described above that I'm charged to process your card & you can purchase your desired time length below:
30 minutes = $60 ($64.04 with the card fee included)
60 minutes = $120 ($127.28 with card fee included)

Their tax professionals have an average of 10 year's experience, so they can handle even the most complicated tax returns. (My tax professional has retired twice and has (I believe 27 years' experience in this field).
You can request to work with the same tax professional every year they're still working there.
You can get your taxes done in person, via drop off, or virtually.
Get your maximum refund or get your money back - guaranteed.
If you'd like to try out a new tax place, get $25 off (if you haven't prepared your taxes with them in 2020), while getting me $20 after you meet this criteria and present the coupon I would give you to use which expires April 10, 2022, then contact me. I should be able to scan the hard copy coupon to you or snail mail it to you. Don't worry if you're nowhere near being ready to do your taxes at least you'll have a legitimiate and reliable place to go at a cheaper rate when you are ready while helping me earn up to $300 (max referrals I can do).
