Do you ever stop to question whether or not you’re on the right career path? I know I have… I went through a radical career shift in my early 20s when I went from counterterrorism expert to career coach! It was difficult realizing that the career I had spent so long building and working towards wasn’t actually right for me, but actually finding my true path was so incredibly satisfying.
And I’m not alone in making that transition. About 75% of Americans have changed careers at least once, and about 33% are currently thinking about it.

Luckily, I’ve been there, and I’m here to help!
