Three Things to Do When Preparing for a Change (Especially if you are starting a new venture!)

When you are planning to make a change in career, that means you are impacting your stream of cash. So today, we talk to Eric about three key things to think about as you are planning to make your move.

1. Know why you are making the move.

Do not just run from something, but define what you are running to. What do you want? Freedom? Money? What is the reason you want to move to a new position.

“Once you define what you want, then the job will come along to fill that need.”]

2. Focus on what you can control.

With the uncertainty of a new venture or a big change, you must focus on those things you can control. Get clear on those things and make wise decisions in those areas.

“When in situations of uncertainty, focus on what you can control.”]

3. Have a plan B and a plan C. Things do not always work out, and they NEVER work out exactly like you planned. So, make sure you have alternatives if things go south.

Quit being a pawn. Stand up and fight back. As you might be noticing yourself, nobody is listening. We have quit talking and turned instead to yelling at each other. And, if nobody is talking, who is controlling the conversation? I have been watching what is going on...
