On episode 34 of The Knowing Self Knowing Others Podcast, we have Steph Tuss, CEO of Life Is Now, sharing her inspiring journey of embracing a squiggly career path.
For those of you navigating your own squiggly career, here is a five point guide to help you manage and make the most of the opportunities that come your way:
✅ Embrace Change: Understand that career paths are rarely linear and predictable. Embrace the twists and turns, knowing that each experience is an opportunity for growth and learning.
✅ Follow Your Inner Desires: Allow your passions and inner desires to guide your choices. Listen to that inner voice urging you to pursue something different, even if it seems unconventional or risky.
✅ Be Open to Opportunities: Say “yes” to opportunities that come your way, even if they don’t quite fit with your original plan. Sometimes the best opportunities arise unexpectedly and can lead you down an exciting and rewarding path.
✅ Learn from Every Experience: Recognise that every experience, whether successful or challenging, has valuable lessons to offer. Reflect on what you’ve learned and how it can inform your future decisions and actions.
✅ Reframe Your Skills: Look for connections and transferable skills from your diverse experiences. Just as Steph’s background in teaching laid the foundation for her success in leadership and business growth, identify how your skills and knowledge can be leveraged in different contexts.
Remember, a squiggly career can be a source of great possibility and personal growth.
Embrace the journey, trust your instincts, and keep learning along the way!
