Michelle helped me get to the point of having confidence to approach a new role. I hadn’t really been to a job interview in my life! I now have a new career.
The whole scenario could’ve been very messy, but I managed to keep my relationships intact.
Sarah K., Development Officer, Not-for-Profit, Melbourne, Australia
The Career Change Challenge
Sarah had built a successful, award-winning business over the past decade and had several employees. She was tired but not ready to retire. She’d been in the same industry for decades and wanted a career change –she wanted to leave the business and move into a role in the not-for-profit sector so she could give back more…
Sarah was extremely concerned about how challenging the situation could be if she were to close the doors on her business and move from self-employment and business owner to employee. It’d been years since she’d looked for a job. She’s also a self-confessed procrastinator. She wasn’t sure what to do.
She reached out to Michelle to be sure this was the right career decision for her, maintain her work relationships no matter what she decides, help her manage her stress and successfully make the transition.
Armed with enhanced self-awareness and confidence in her decision, Sarah closed her business and pursued the new career she desired. And she did it with grace. Moreover, Sarah interviewed successfully and left with all her work relationships intact.
She placed all of her staff into new positions and organisations they love. She left, as she’d always hoped, with a strong network behind her and a positive future ahead.
