Tired of being stressed no wlb. I really want to transition to mission-driven work. I’ve started interviewing with orgs I’m super excited about but pay is much less. How much pay cut is too much?

Unfortunately that really is a personal choice but if mission driven work and WLB are more important to you than money, just know that there will be a pay cut and you’ll need to be ok with that to move into a job you’re happy in. I came from NFP and would happily take a large pay cut to go back to my original salary and have a better lifestyle all around. Feel free to DM if you want to chat - definitely pros and cons to any decision and I think finances are a large consideration here if you’re concerned about pay cut

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.

How do you answer the question, "Why are you interested in this job?" when you are being recruited?

I didn't have my usual prepared answer ("looking for a new challenge", etc) because they called me. What would you have said in this situation.
