I’ve been a planner for about 5 years now and want to move on to something that would be a better fit. I’m having difficulty discovering potential options that I can pivot to. Can you please share what you’ve successfully pivoted to if you were once a planner? And what made you decide to pivot to that specific field? Just trying to get ideas and some sort of direction.
