After reading my Monday post about my own career change, a reader asked:

“What gave you the confidence to make those changes and help change your mindset?”

1. Daily meditation & writing about fears, gratitude, forgiveness, and wins shifted my perspectives.

2. Clarity on what my 1-3 year life plan looked like gave me a blueprint.

3. Interviewing people in roles that fit my blueprint gave me confidence I was on target.

You can do this yourself, but a coach will get you there faster.

Sometimes it feels like it’s too late in the game to make that change.

like

PM1 that feeling that “ it’s too late” is your mind trying to protect you. There’s science behind it - “fight or flight.”

Our brains are hardwired to protect us. That message is your brain saying “it’s safer to stay where I am even though I’m not fulfilled/happy/fill-in-the-blank”

That message is limiting you from living your full potential and true happiness.

The truth is you can change careers safely without risking everything. I’ve done it and so have many others.

If you want help DM me.

How did you find people with that life blueprint

You said interview people that fit your life blueprint so I thought you meant they had a similar path in life that you wanted! I Might have misinterpreted

Just realized I mistakenly misspelled the person’s name I sent an email to as part of an interview process.

I so hate doing that to someone, do I follow up with a short - “Sorry X I realized I misspelled your name in the prior email, have a nice weekend” or do I just let it be?

One letter off, this is what I get for responding on my phone, dang autocorrect.

Hello everyone ,
I'm in the process of transitioning from the nonprofit sector to project management. I'd appreciate any advice from anyone who has transitioned from social services to PM.

I have experience in PM task but within a nonprofit so I’ve been getting turned down. It's been disheartening, but I know it's not impossible. Also, do you have any recommendations for companies that are more responsive to people who do not have a technical background?

Any help is appreciated !

Are any of these still in anyone’s radar or portfolio? I’m indifferent as I have limited vested in all of these. Just curious if I hold or trade back to BTC.

We have 1 frozen PGS tested embryo. We did another cycle to bank an extra but were unsuccessful.

We now have to decide if we want to transfer the frozen one or try another cycle, and I am torn. On one hand, I'm telling myself to do the transfer because if it works we're done. On the other hand, I'm telling myself to go for a backup given my age (39) and AMH (0.9) because if the transfer doesn't work we will be gutted with the very real possibility that we're done. Not sure what to do
