Finding or changing a career is more about your self-image than anything else. Ask me. I changed careers in my 50’s. “What do you want to do?” is only the first question. How do you want to live is the important question. Let me use my personal experience to help you through the fears and self-doubts that come with making a major change in your life. I can tell you this: if you are waiting until you have no doubts, you will wait forever. By the way, if you are retired or planning retirement, that is a career change. It was fun getting up every morning with nothing on the agenda, for, what, six months? Then you got up thinking about what the rest of your life was about. Come explore this.

Feeling trapped in a dead-end job? Sometimes it can be useful to understand how a job allows us to pursue interests outside of work, but for some people it is more important to identify new career paths that allow you to better express yourself as a person. I focus on helping people identify ways to improve their current work situation while exploring the possibility of making career changes. How would your life change if you were able to get the job you have always dreamed of?

While most career counselors love to give you capacity based profiles of what your talents and interests are for your best bet career choices, Grey Matters international believes that most people make predictably irrational decisions and then after making them learn way to make them fit into their identities using various types of rationalizations and strategies. We are able to assist folks in career counseling type settings by giving a deeper look at their decision making profile so they can better understand where the core frustration or desire is coming from in the world of work.
