Are you overworked, stressed-out, and just plain tired of juggling work and family responsibilities without any time for yourself? If you are, you're not alone. In fact, a recent study found that over 1/3 of Americans are overwhelmed with their jobs and are at risk for major health problems.
What can you do to get out of this mess? Consider changing careers! That's what I did. On the eve of my 7th anniversary of starting my own business, I reflect on what my life was like before I put on my entrepreneurial hat and hung up my corporate coat.
One symptom of my overwhelm, fibromyalgia, has been in remission since I discovered how to work my passion. My migraines are gone, too. Don't get me wrong - there's a lot of work involved in running your own business, but since it's the kind of work I enjoy, I am happy! My family is happier, too, knowing that I now love what I do.
You can be happy, too. Be bold. Take the first step to choose the right career for yourself. Life is too short to be imprisoned by a career that doesn't meet your needs.
