How Can I Give Continuity to My Career and Personal Growth with a Mobile Lifestyle?
Have you ever been lost or locked in transition? I have. I’ve experienced what many relocating partners have: intense change, life upside-down, uncertainty, contingencies, haunting new schools, doctors, .. friends; and everything else that comes along with uprooting your life and building a new one from ground up. Numbed by the many times I’ve repeated the process.
A few years ago, a year in what was my 6th relocation, with both of my daughters in full-time school schedule, I realized I had been locked in the transitions of my mobile lifestyle. It was a brutal awakening to recognize I wasn’t living to my fullest potential. With no network or local support system. With more questions than answers. I spent a lot of time bouncing in extensive google research and asking for coffees. Pretending my answers were in the hands of the outside world.
The next steps seemed obvious: hire a recruiter and reenter the workforce. To me, those simple and obvious next steps seemed like a summit I needed to climb with a big gap in my professional path, and for tools I had ‘what can I do? what am I good at? what’s my passion? what do I want? unanswered questions.
I began my summit, not knowing what exactly I was searching for. Very fast got immersed in what felt a gigantic maze, with a range of universal voices offering a cocktail of routes. While some of those voices were the real deal, a lot of them were nothing but scams and a waste of my precious time and money. Energy-suckers that left me feeling more lost, confused and frustrated.
Going through this massive maze & fruitless noise experience, shed light to understand that with the lack of credibility on the web, and the fast-paced change in today's increasingly competitive world, finding an effective route and one you can trust, is a journey itself. One that can take years to travel.
It shed light to realize that sometimes isolated learning and traditional coaching fall short to get us all the way to the other side.
I know this after spending years between classes and coaching sessions, spreading out my resources into too many baskets. Struggling to manage my availability between my personal pursue and parenting. Often wrestling for answers to - how can I make it to the other side without sacrificing family, money and time? How can I find something of great value that will not be a short-cut but an enriching effective approach that will help me move my life forward? I needed the real deal to be flexible and fit my lifestyle.
After a long journey, I learned that getting to the other side of the maze is an incredible crusade we can achieve without sacrificing anything - not our family, not our money, not our time. How? Through merging enriching learning with coaching and consulting backed with life experience from those who have been in your shoes.
This is what EnRoute.Life is - a place to learn who you are, what you want and where you’re going. A place to get real solutions to your unique story and pursue of dreams. A place to revamp your life and learn to give it continuity anywhere.
I hope this Route Will Help You Move Your Life Forward.
