And if there is a new field you’ve always wanted to try out and there’s an opportunity for you to do so given your life circumstances, then go for it! Maybe you suddenly have more time on your hands. Maybe you’ve learned about a new program that offers training or access to educational opportunities. Perhaps you are just fed up with the conditions or lack of options in your current field. Whatever your reason, if you are inspired to take action, then go for it.
The pros and cons of switching teams mid career
But, beware of the grass looking greener and all that…
You could invest the time and money to gain the skills to pursue a new career, but if you are doing it to escape what you don’t like (versus doing it because you’ve always wanted to) you might find the quirks and downsides of your new career are not much better than what you do now. Plus, you might have to start at entry level or mid career, versus the seniority you might have now, among other benefits. So, do your due diligence.
There is, however, another path that presents nearly unlimited opportunities. What’s that? You ask…
What’s a Knowledge Business?
I talk about a knowledge business as opposed to an information or infobusiness to distinguish between a business based on transforming lives based on your know-how vs dumping information on people. Information businesses are disappearing, because information is almost free. It’s everywhere, due to the ubiquity of the internet in every aspect of our lives. What people need is guidance based on hard-earned knowledge based on experience (yours), skills, research and your passion to make a difference in the lives of your target market.
They need to know what information to trust or not, what’s the best of the best in terms of all that’s out there, how to achieve real transformation to solve their problems for good or truly achieve what they want.
Rediscover Your Life Expertise
Based on the things you’re great at, the things you’ve overcome or accomplished, you have that knowledge to really help other people. No one has walked in your shoes, so your perspective on how to tackle challenges and solve problems is unique. And there are people out there who will vibe to your way of seeing the world. The truth is that your life has prepared you to help people in a certain way. Tapping into that core magic inside you is what creating a knowledge business is about.
Once you tap into the valuable knowledge you already possess and match it with the big, urgent problems plaguing people you want to help (often, folks just like you!) you’ve discovered the path to a new life (not just a career).
