The past 2 years have been crazy, for a multitude of reasons. We have seen the job market and the stock market act in ways that we haven't seen in awhile and that leaves each of us with one important question. Or really, probably a number of questions stemming from this one question:
What do I do now?
The stock market tanked, what do I do now? The Great Resignation is happening, what do I do now? I lost my job, what do I do now? I want a better paying job, I want a remote job, I want to do something I love doing...what do I do now? I need more money, my 401k lost $700,000 or $50,000 or $1,000 [insert your amount], I'm scared about the future of my job and I don't have much savings...what do I do now?
Do any of those resonate with you? I know more than a few resonate with me, and they resonate, or have resonated, with a number of my clients.
The truth is, there is no one way to respond to those questions for everyone. Like I always say, personal finances are PERSONAL. Just like personal finances are personal, your answer(s) to the above questions(s) are also personal. Please remember, what is good for one person may not be a great solution for someone else.
Maybe one person left a job for a remote position because they wanted to spend more time with family while another person stayed working in a hybrid role because they liked getting out of the house.
Maybe one person decided to focus on paying off their credit card debt while another person focused on keeping more cash in their account because that makes them more comfortable.
What are your circumstances? What are you trying to change? Why do you want to change those things? Do you need help in accomplishing those items? Do you need to refresh your interview skills because it's been awhile since you've interviewed? Do you need to create a budget? Do you need to attack your debt but feel overwhelmed and don't know where to start?
That's why I'm here! To help YOU!
My favorite thing as a recruiter was giving people feedback on their interview or resume because often times no one had taken the time to explain to them why certain items were important or something was distracting. And most people were thankful for the feedback. Yeah, I said most. Let's be honest, not everyone wants feedback.
(That GIF about sums up what happens when they didn't want feedback. Ha!)
I've been overwhelmed by debt, not knowing where to start and feeling like none of the standard plans worked for me.
It's all personal!
Your plans to go after your dreams, to figure out your next steps, they're all personal to you, your life, your goals, your priorities. Please, whatever you do, do NOT compare yourself, your life, your journey to someone else's because it will never be the same. They could be in the 3rd quarter while you're about to head into the locker room for halftime and a refresh, or vice versa. Yes, I love football. I had to put it in there.

I know it can be scary. Change can be scary. But a quote that has always given me strength is:
"Everything you want is on the other side of fear."
