Unapologetically Embrace Your Career Pivots

People make career pivots for many reasons including to raise children, care for a loved one, or move into a new career due to changing interests or job market. Whatever the reason for your pivot, consider:

  • There is no such thing as losing your mojo, you are simply gaining a different type of mojo when you pivot.
  • Break expectations of the typical career path for things that are important to you.
  • Outsource responsibilities that you don’t want to do.
  • Regain your confidence in work by getting back in and trying - sometimes failing and often succeeding.
  • Like never forgetting how to ride a bike, it just takes a bit of warming up to get back in the gears - you might find that you are faster or stronger because you came off for awhile.
  • Consider sharpening another skill-set that you didn’t even know you had.
  • #ShaketheShame of making decisions that are right for you.
  • Let people know why you did what you did and what you are bringing to the table because of it.
  • Choose where you are going to put your effort and your skills and that is where they will develop.
  • Don’t worry about how you look, worry about what the experience is teaching you.
  • No matter what you do, your skills are always transferable.
  • If you don’t take that time to explore, your life becomes a series of "What Ifs?" and "Woulda, Coulda, Shouldas." Consider positive questions like, “What if I weren't afraid?”
