Day 6 of The Inner Compass Process

career direction tips May 08, 2021

For the next 21 days, I'm going to be posting my Inner Compass journey on my blog. Want to go through the Inner Compass Process with me to find more personal and professional fulfillment? Please read these short blog posts and journal your responses.

In order to make a fulfilling career change, you have to give yourself permission to explore EVERYTHING, even if you're not sure it's realistic.
At the beginning of last April, I had a strong inclination to want to go back and work at my high school.
Attending my high school was one of the most transformative experiences of my life and I knew I had always wanted to work there; yet my mind kept saying, "Danielle, you can't afford it."
I did some investigating, and I found out that the college advisor would be leaving her position. Even better, the position was part-time. I also researched ways I could scale my business, so I could take on the college advising work.
I applied, interviewed, and was offered the position.
MAKING THE CHANGE WAS ONE OF MY BEST DECISIONS RECENTLY. If I did not give myself permission to explore, I would not be working at my high school .
What about you? What career changes have you considered and would like to give yourself FULL PERMISSION TO EXPLORE? Remember, researching a career is NOT committing to a change. It's just research.
