How to Begin the Career Change Process

How does one completely change careers…where do you begin?  Brainstorm all avenues, even those incredibly unlikely, and include your significant other/support in the process.  Start thinking about “transferable skills”.  These are not necessarily educational based, but rather things that you are good at.  Also, think about what you are passionate about.  My story started on a walk with the girls, my wife, and dog.  My wife was the one who asked me, “Have you ever thought about being a Realtor”?  A light bulb when off and I felt excited.  I haven’t felt that excitement in a long time when it came to my career.  It sounded like fun and I thought real estate would something that I could be good at it.  After some research, I discovered it was actually feasible!
