Are you working in a job or career that doesn’t fulfill or excite you? Do you feel stuck there because you need the money, or for some other reason?
Luckily, there are some great alternatives to the traditional job search strategy. You can begin to create a new, more fulfilling path for yourself while you are still in your current position.
It doesn’t have to happen all at once.
I have a client now who has been building a business by working on it every Saturday for the past two years. This has happened while he has been working the job he plans to leave.
He has built foundational pieces for his future business, such as the name of the company, the logo, and company programs. He knows his target audience. He knows what sets him apart in his field. He has a business plan. He even has some clients already. With these things in place, his transition into a fully functioning business will be much smoother.
In some ways, it’s actually more ideal to do it this way.
If you feel you have reached the end of your career growth in your current job, but you can’t leave, think about ways you can begin to build or find your new dream job, while you still work at this one.
Start to think of some things you can do while you are in your current position that will move you in the direction you want to go. Each step you take in the direction of building your new dream job will give you more impetus and encouragement.
You can create a job you love!
You are not here to work a job that you hate for the rest of your life. Whether you are interested in building your own entrepreneurial adventure, doing consulting work, or something else, you can begin the process and build your foundation one step at a time.
