Career Transitions

In this episode of the Business Chat podcast, I speak with Lois Keay-Smith, a career counsellor who helps people figure out what they want in their career path and how they can get there. Individuals who feel stuck often fear changing careers because society dictates that stability is possible by staying in one profession.  However, it’s never too late to transition and enjoy what you’ve always wanted to do. If you’re at a career crossroads and don’t know which path to take, listen to the episode for valuable tips and advice. Time Stamps:
