If the corporate world doesn’t appeal to you, and you have an entrepreneurial streak, then Gaynor Paynter from Typewrite Transcription shares the highs and lows of being your own boss. Unfortunately, working from home doesn’t mean a life of leisure as you still have to create effective boundaries between work and family; then there are operational expenses, daily administration and difficult customers that you have to get through before you actually settle down to doing the job that you love doing. Don’t be discouraged, Gaynor advises people to overcome their fear of going solo- but be open-minded about the challenges ahead of you.
Laura Mcdermid also shares her advice about making a career changes because statistically you’re not going to finish up in the career that you studied for. Laura’s career path took her from vetrinary science to nutrition to starting her own business. In addition to her formal studies, Laura also took it upon herself to take responsibility for her education through self-study. An important consideration is that if you’re passionate about what you do it won’t feel like work.
