Can I make a career change without sacrificing my standard of living?
There are no easy answers when it comes to financial concerns. The rule of thumb would be no pain, no gain. However, we’ve been astounded at the clever tactics and tricks our clients have used to break into a new career without taking a major hit on their income. Over the years, we have honed these transition techniques and teach them to our clients.
Many of our clients say they are willing to take a temporary reduction in income during the transition period, and are banking on a personal commitment to turn their new found passion into a profitable endeavor. There is truth to the logic that people who are naturally talented at what they do tend to “stand out in the crowd,” and are better able to command higher income.
If you are strongly considering a field that typically pays low, and conclude that making good money is also important, you would need to muster up all your cleverness and creativity to generate a career that is an exception to the rule.
