If you’ve ever dreamed about…
- downshifting or taking a sabbatical
- starting your own business
- pursuing work that is more meaningful or less stressful
but stopped short because there’s simply no way you could afford to leave your current job, you’ve come to the right place.
The financial piece of the career change puzzle
While other career change resources guide you toward the kind of role, organization, industry, etc., that best suit your personality, preferences, and lifestyle, this blog’s mission is to help you understand the financial implications of a career transition, often a major hurdle you’ll need to overcome to achieve your career change goals. Here you’ll find a collection of financial planning tools, tips, stories, and resources designed to help you break away without going broke or foregoing other cherished financial goals.
Having a sense of deja vu?
If you are longtime client of New Means Financial Planning, my fee-only financial planning firm, some of these resources may look familiar. That’s because many were originally made available via the “Career Change Corner” section of www.newmeans.com, the Web site for New Means Financial Planning. As of May 2009, the Career Change Corner has gone to blog format to enable greater interactivity and more frequent updates. So you can look forward to even more where this came from!
Need extra help, or prefer not to figure it out yourself?
