Four Simple Steps to Making Your Next Career Move the Best One Yet
What if you could truly love the work that you do, instead of pretending that you do?
The fact that you’re here tells me you’re probably feeling stuck and struggling to figure out the best next step for your career. Should you continue the work you were trained to do or should you change career direction?
If you’re like many of the awesome women I work with, you’re tired of showing up at work each day feeling bored and unfulfilled -you want to do work that matters. You hear friends talking about finding dream roles, but you have no idea if that’s even possible for you. You’re ready to lean into your brilliance and do work that you care about, so you can make a real impact in the world.
What happens next is a little foggy. I can relate.
When I was eight years old, I wanted to make a difference in the world.
Being a lawyer looked like a great option. I studied hard, went to law school and trained as a corporate lawyer. Shortly before qualifying, I went on a mission trip to East Africa. It was an amazing, life-changing experience. I had the opportunity to educate innocent prisoners on their rights, train local villagers about child protection rights and review new legislation. Our mission was to support those who did not have access to justice.
When I returned to my corporate lawyer role, something was missing. I’d just been making a huge impact on the lives of others and now I was pouring over documents late into the evening on a million-pound deal. I knew then that I needed to be doing something to help people on a more personal level.
Following a journey of discovery, I found the world of coaching. I trained for my coaching certification alongside my legal career. I continued to work as a lawyer and worked with coaching clients in my spare time. When I was on maternity leave with my son, I realised that going back to those 16-hour days was not an option and struggled to figure out the best next step for me. I had changed and wanted to work in a way that worked for my family. I made a tough decision and broke free of law firm life.
There began my portfolio career, where I work as an in-house lawyer and a coach for high-achieving women.
