When you were a little diva in elementary school, you probably changed career ambitions every week. I can remember watching Living Single and wanting to be a lawyer like Maxine and the creative force behind a magazine like Khadijah. Kyle’s job as a stockbroker even fascinated me until I remembered I sucked at math! Now that you’re an adult, you may be looking to shift gears and embark upon a new career. Some people will try to talk you out of it because it’s “not practical”, but opinions are a dime a dozen. If it’s truly in your spirit to be something, then you should take action.
Grind Pretty had the pleasure of speaking with Houston-based life and business strategist Miara Shaw who helps women move from stuck to execution. Here are Miara’s top 5 tips for diving into a new career!
1. Find a leader in the industry you want to be like and study what they do very closely. Buy their books, follow their blogs, get their email list and soak up as much information as you can. Miara stresses that one should always be a student; not a copycat.
