Today’s post is dedicated to fleshing out what amounts to one midlife career change idea. If I were reading this article I would immediately start to wonder why just one. The answer is simple at least for me. I have only found one that was worth pursuing, once I did a little research. I have spent years looking at ideas, or alternatives to a typical career, finally I found Wealthy Affiliate. That is a link to an overview.
So what are your choices. The majority of my readers will likely be like me, with a high school diploma, and some college maybe even a two or four year degree. After lucking into a good paying career, I really wasn’t satisfied. It paid well and had good benefits, but it wasn’t a joy. I didn’t sit there and think man I cant wait to go to work, or work on this project etc.
So over the years I pondered, considered, researched. I seriously considered going back to school but how do you do that with a family, and a full time job etc. I can just hear you thinking the same things. Really it seemed, the only option would be to spend thousands of dollars (think debt), and get one of those degrees that life experience coupled with online classes could get. For me my job was tolerable so I just plugged away at it, and continued to look for that opportunity. I finally concluded the only way I will change what I am doing is to find some one way to get online, which seemed over the top impossible. It wasn’t at all!
I feel so lucky to have found Wealthy Affiliate. I still have the 9-5 job, (security, plus I am really new to this), but I literally take a few hours a day, and write about stuff that I love, juicing. juicenjoy.com if you are interested in seeing my work. It took a couple of months before I started making money, and definitely still in the trickle stages, but I have all the tools to monitor my website, and all I see is increasing numbers.. Each week/month it grows! When I first started, I wanted to make lots of money super fast, and this is not that, but it is getting better and better. The best part is its not work, its a joy. I love it. I sincerely hope you will check out the link above. I believe it can change your life. I am living that change today!
