Ready To Start (Again): A New Career For A New You

Do you feel like you are stuck in some kind of rut? Are you concerned about your finances? Are you just plain bored and getting up every morning, taking the train to work with the same people that you know nothing about, to sit at a desk job which you have no idea how to do, even though you've been doing it for 10 years?! Then maybe it's time for a shake up in your career! Because we live longer lives now, it is not uncommon for people to change careers. In fact, people are now likely to have three careers in their lifetime. So, if you are fed up of your first one, maybe it's time to move on to the second. And the benefit that you have over a 21-year-old, fresh out of college, is two simple words: life experience. So use it to your advantage. Here are a couple of career choices that you might want to think about.

Care Worker
If you are looking for a career that has a bit more meaning, then being a care worker for old age pensioners or people with learning difficulties is a very rewarding choice of career. If you want to work in this environment, it generally means long hours, and it does involve getting your hands dirty in many different ways. But if you relish the notion of helping someone with a learning difficulty to feed themselves, or to spend hours with an elderly lady playing relaxing board games or talking about old memories, this can be a very enjoyable career on top of all of the hard work.

Financial Advisor
We've all had issues with money in the past. What would you tell your younger self if you had to do it all again? Would you tell them to squander their money, or would you make sure that they make smarter financial choices? The role of a financial advisor combines working with people and working with money (which are two lovely things). If you wanted to train as a financial advisor, it could take quite a bit of time, but you will also need to pass an exam. However, there are many tools that can help you with this such as and many other websites.

Starting Your Own Business
You may find that any choice of career may not fit. So maybe you should start your own career that suits your own specific set of skills! Have you got a hobby which is something you are very good at? Many people are now running a business by making small items or trinkets and selling them via websites like eBay. If you love looking after kids, then maybe starting your own play center, catering for all different ages, and giving adults an opportunity to have a break (as every parent needs to have some time off). Look for the one skill that you have which nobody does around you. This is the key to making any business stand out in a crowded marketplace.

Work for Yourself 

Maybe working for someone else just doesn’t suit you or the lifestyle you crave. Many people are now choosing to use the skills and interests they have to bring in an income, without any limitations that can happen as a result of being employed by somebody else. This could be a specific skill you have such as teaching guitar, or offering therapy or coaching if you are qualified in this area. Selling goods is another popular option for people who wish to work for themselves. Leelinesourcing can find you good suppliers to help you to sell the best imported products online. Be unique in what you offer to the market making sure to find ways to stand out from the crowd.
