Career Change Ideas You Can Take With You Anywhere - And Prepare You For A Digital Economy!
Changing careers can be a very daunting prospect for some, and one that can throw up many challenges and considerations, particularly for those of you who have a family to support and/or financial commitments to keep up with every month.
Most families (or even couples) these days, would struggle to keep up financially if one of the money earners suddenly decided to quit their job and go back to study, or even change to part-time work to do some extra study (if the study’s what’s needed to make that change)
Unless you’ve managed to put away a substantial amount of money over the years, this consideration is almost always the main reason that stops most people from making that decision.
Personally, that’s what stopped me for years too. I couldn’t afford to stop working a full-time job, and the cost of most courses was more than I could afford without one.
At this point, you may not even know what your next step is, or what you want to do next, or even what choices are available to you right now.
So, what do you do now?
You’ve obviously reached a point or at a crossroads in your career (and/or life) where an important decision has to be made, and there are lots of reasons why you might be at that point, such as:
- Your family is growing and you need to increase your income
- You’re not passionate about your work anymore
- Your job is unfulfilling and lacks meaning
- You can’t progress any further in your career
- You want a better lifestyle
- You want more of what life has to offer
- You want to be able to leave something for your kids
- You want to work fewer hours
- You want to be able to travel more
- You’re sick of the 9-5 grind, your boss, and the daily commute
- You want to be able to spend more time with your kids and be there for them
- you want to start working from home and be your own boss
- and so many, many more
This is where a lot of people get stuck though, putting it into the “too hard basket” - and continuing on with the same-old, same-old. But you really shouldn’t do that, because this will only lead to regret and resentment further down the road.
Any reason you have for wanting to change your career right now is an important one (to you at the very least!) so consider the consequences of not making that change before you give up on it and on your dreams.
When most people think about changing careers they’re usually thinking about moving from one type of job to another type of job, and although that job may be something completely different …it’s still just a job!
And, as one of my favorite authors, Robert Kiyosaki says …"it’s keeping us all broke!"
I’m not a big fan of “having a job” where you trade your time for money. I prefer instead, to put my energy into building a passive income through online businesses that can serve me 24/7, 365 days per year.
This may not be something you’ve considered up till now - but consider this. If you could do this without having to give up your current day job, would that make this a much more doable option??
I bet it would. It certainly was for me when I first discovered this possibility.
I was a chef at the time, 54 years old, and working 60+ hours per week on someone else dreams, trading my time for money, and thoroughly miserable! I was fed up with working the long hours and split shifts and never being at home with (or for) my family.
I knew something had to change before my health and relationships suffered any further, which is when I decided to look for an alternative.
When I first started looking I didn’t really know what I was looking for. The only thing I knew, at the time, was that I wanted to find something that allowed me to stop trading my time for money and start earning a passive income that would eventually give me (and my family) financial independence.
By far though, the thing that I was looking for the most was something with integrity, that aligned with my beliefs and would fulfillment my life's purpose again.
So, when I first discovered this opportunity I was over the moon because it meant I could start working on my career change in my spare time, even though I had no digital skills at the time or any online business knowledge.
Let me briefly explain what I discovered and how it works. I found a group of online entrepreneurs and mentors that showed me step by step how to start, build, and grow an online business from scratch. Their comprehensive training program is world-class and gives you all the tools and training you will ever need to start your own online business ...and best of all, their support never stops - EVER!
So, let's look at a couple of the many options available that are a good place to start for anyone that's new to this idea (as I was when I first began)
So, What Kind Of Opportunities Can You Start & Run Part-time?
You should start with something that is very product-driven (as opposed to service-related) and extremely easy to fulfill on. Something that you believe in and feel confident selling. And it needs to be a product (physical or digital) that you can sell many times over every week without spending a lot of your personal time on customer service or fulfillment.
After all, the last thing you want to be doing after a long day's work is to come home and have to spend hours on delivering whatever it is that you’re selling.
Get Started With Affiliate Marketing
So, what business models work best around your current job? Affiliate marketing is a great one to start with. This is where you sell other businesses products (or services) for a commission - without having to do any of the fulfillment or delivery yourself.
As an affiliate, the amount of products you can sell is unlimited. And the beauty of this is, you can sell those products many times over, 24/7, 365 days a year. So even when you’re working or doing other things, you’re busy growing your income along with your business as well.
Another option is to sell physical products with an e-commerce business. With physical products, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel either. You can simply order existing products in bulk, at a fraction of the cost, and then set up a sales system to sell them through.
Opportunities like Amazon FBA or even drop-shipping will do the heavy lifting for you. They will process the payments and deal directly with packaging, distribution, and customer service.
In the meantime, you’ll get busy setting up marketing campaigns to make those sales happen - which can be done in 1-2 hours a day.
These two business models are only two of many possibilities you'll find online these days. Those business models and everything else mentioned above were completely foreign to me before I got started, but the training you get explains everything you need to know ...and it can all be done at your own pace.
If you're going to spend the time and money upskilling or learning new things, then why not consider the benefits an online business can bring to your life.
Remember, an online business is portable. So, you can work from home or be anywhere in the world and still be able to run a successful business.
Something To Consider As You Go Into This
People always want the ultimate answer to the question “how long is this going to take” before I start making money online? But there are so many variables to that question that it’s hard to answer. It could be a matter of weeks or it could take months.
I think a better question to ask yourself is, how long can I put up with my current situation before something in my life gives?
So a lot comes down to the time you have available and your commitment to learning the digital skills needed to succeed.
If you’re serious about changing your career and starting something new - and looking for a genuine way to do it around your current day job, without having to break the bank or have a ceiling on your income potential, then this might be exactly what you’re looking for.

In my experience, the longer you leave these things, the worse they get. So, if you don’t take the necessary action now to change that situation, then nothing will happen - ...and that's guaranteed!
Why not take that first step now towards a future you truly deserve and develop the skills you need to change your career now - and recession-proof your future at the same time!
