It takes a special kind of person to make a complete career change after more than 25 years in one industry…
Adding to that being over 40, without another job to go to and that takes things to a whole other level!
Siobhan Tagell fell into a job in the office products industry and quickly rose the ranks to become a General Manager and was highly respected in her role.
Long hours and health challenges led her to pull the pin on that career path and opened up to a new opportunity to start her own business as a Project manager for home renovations in Sydney’s Inner West…
In this week’s podcast episode, Siobhan shares with Shandra:
- How she left her Uni degree behind and the struggles in making that happen
- The reasons she stayed in one role for 17 years
- The physical toll her ‘successful’ role took on her
- Why she turned down a ‘dream’ job offer after she resigned
- How she got the idea for her business – and it wasn’t what she thought it would be…
- The things she found easy as an employee that have been harder in her own business
- The best things about working for herself
- Tips on preparing for the financial impact of working for yourself
This is a great interview for anyone who has been in one industry a really long time and now wants to leave and start their own business.
