Career Coward's Guide to Changing Careers - Piotrowski

I read The Career Coward's Guide to Changing Careers by Katy Piotrowski, M.Ed and thought you might like it as well.

Here are some of the questions the book addresses, which I know might be on your mind as you consider a career change.

-How will you identify a new career?
-Where do you research new careers?
-How to make the decision about what to pursue?
-Why do you want to make this change
-How can you make the transition successfully and as painlessly as possible?
-What excites you now and why now?
-Did something change in your life that is inspiring this new direction?
-How do you build a bridge from where you are in your life to your new career
-What about risk, rewards, payoff, how much time? Burnout?

What I loved about the book?
Good tips, quick read, easy to go back to certain pieces, reuseable, samples and worksheets!

It's my recommended reading this month!

I did get a chuckle out of that myself.

I think sometimes we all kinda feel that way don't we?
