Career Transition Make the Shift
In 2006, Deborah made a decision to change her career life as she had known it over two decades. She wasn’t laid off, downsized or fired. She made a thoughtful, voluntary decision to change her career path. This book is about career transition, not as a periodic occurance anymore, but as a way of life.
I have always thought of myself as a “spiritual entrepreneur”. Kindness and humor are my superpowers. Giving, receiving and encouraging them. Spiritual entrepreneurs believe and demonstrate: “you can’t keep it unless you give it away”.
We are never completely prepared for life and what it puts in our path, but we must live in and focus on the NOW always with an eye on the unexpected, the next, the future.
The WHY is about accountability, optimism, using social media, being authentic, encouraging humor and having impeccable integrity. Relevance is the most coveted ideal anyone can commit to. Change is a door.
This ebook is a collection of 56 articles which have been featured on the national websites I have been writing for. They chronicle my professional and personal journey and transitions through these times. I also feature 15 trusted and valued colleagues, that I have met along the way who are influential voices in business, marketing, social media and careers, who have influenced me.
Be as prepared as you can be in the present for whatever life throws your way.
From integrity, consistency, optimism and commitment to kindness, humor, curiosity and creativity the solutions always defer back to professional fundamentals, personal values and humor that ultimately get us through anything.
These respected and trusted colleagues have been my colleagues, mentors, motivators and mirrors as well as resources for so many others to impac success.
