Claire's Career Change
Claire worked her way up over 8 years at an education startup to a senior leadership role in New York. Claire got the privilege of working at senior roles and got to try out remote work before it was common as today, but surprisingly, she was still unhappy. After taking a year to travel and work on her mindset, she realized "It's less about fixing issues but more about shifting as a person”. In the midst of getting offers to work as COOs, she realized that her true passion is to help other women reconnect with themselves and transform.
Some simple steps from Claire if you're feeling like you have blinders on and can't seem to find enjoyment in your work, start by writing down what makes you feel joy, proud, and grateful every day! It sounds like the simplest thing and almost cliche but it has been proven by research that counting your blessings is a proven way to make you happier.
