Most of us come to work wearing our most grown-up personas possible. We put on our pressed shirts and stiffest shoes, our serious faces and we’re heads down focusing on time, dates, deliverables, budgets, and all those other “officially adult” tasks in our day.
Does making a career change make you happier? I coached my client Letitia through stepping away from the “corporate swirl” into an entirely different life and career. Watch her video to see how she feels now that she’s switched gears with the help of coaching.

Some of us will be heading back into the office soon, while some will continue working from home indefinitely, or, as boldly proposed by Twitter and Square, forever. But does that mean our careers will stagnate? How will we learn to lead or prove ourselves in this new virtual frontier?
I would like to offer some thoughts about the meaning of careerism, and the importance of pausing to allow serendipity to blossom. While these observations arise from a significant life change for me, I believe they also apply in daily business life. The challenge is, how can you make them apply in the context of your own career.
