Be the Boss


This Fast Company piece offering advice on career change takes on an important issue for a lot of people.

HOW does one change careers? Fast Company:

Take a step back from your own angst…. What mattered most to you when you were 18 or 21 most likely wasn’t the same as what matters most to you at 30 and 35, not to mention 50 or 60. Right? What gives us meaning is constantly changing, which is why we inevitably come to a point when we need to break down whatever mental model we’ve created for ourselves and find a new approach.

“How to change careers when you don’t know what you want to do next” suggests a few ways one might navigate those “moments of impasse” and “conquer them.” We’d humbly suggest one possible outcome not specifically addressed by the authors.

Why not be the boss?

If you’ve ever thought starting your own business, why not let the Kentucky Innovation Network help you? We can introduce you to mentors and resources that will help you take that all important step towards independence.

The Kentucky Innovation Network is also, by the way, the presenting sponsor for the IdeaFestival, which is a great place to be inspired by an idea, to develop an idea you already have or to network with accomplished, creative people that “stay curious.” For a limited time, you can get a discounted festival pass through Aug. 30.
