Michelle Mudge Riley & Laura Brenner Studholme - Shifting Careers and Finding a New Direction
Things change in life, and much of the time things don’t go how we planned. Obstacles come up, challenges appear, and sometimes we simply wonder if we’re meant to do what we’re doing right now. Today I’m joined by two friends of mine, Dr. Michelle Mudge Riley and Dr. Laura Brenner Studholme, to talk about how they have changed up their career paths in different ways and found really cool collaborations and solutions along the way.
Listen in as Michelle and Laura share their stories, from where they started in the medical field and dentistry to how and why they decided to shift focus and pursue something different. You will get some valuable insight into the thought process of discovering how, when, and if you need to make a transition.
5:01 – What to do when you start feeling like what you’ve been training for isn’t for you.
7:22 – The barriers to shifting directions and the worst mistake to make.
11:17 – Facing burnout and deciding what to do next.
16:01 – Looking back on Michelle’s and Laura’s career change decisions and weighing the benefits.
