Before you hire a coach read Cal Newport, “So Good They Can’t Ignore You.” It’s about how skills trump passion when making a career change. Very helpful book.

I’m a fan of Lisa Lewis (lisalewiscareers.com). She also has a podcast Career Clarity if you want to check that out first. Good luck!

I’m also a big fan of the Clifton Strengths assessment. (Such a big fan I’m getting my certification in it). It’s not a tool meant to determine WHAT you should do but rather help identify your natural talents and areas for potential. It’s more the HOW of you which can be applied to anything you pursue in this next career. Happy to share more about it. Again, good luck!

Believe in yourself. Only you know you. Trust in yourself, your ability and your passion to succeed. You are your own book. A career coach will never be able to read it. Look back on your experiences, you know what you are good at. Talk to people you know. Discuss with friends and make your decision what’s next.

It’s a shame that you obviously work in the US and I’m in Europe because with 50 years in the business I might have been able to help.

I came for my MBA to the US in 2010. Had zero worries about my future because MBA was sure shot to my American dream of settling in the USA. Didnt even check the weather, was just glad that the school ranked in top 30. Just saw the average salary and thought I can get that too, and almost did. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly. Wasn't scared to drive anywhere in the country, even had drinks in local bars in tomahawk,wi. Don't even recognise this country anymore. Online mba, f that!!!
