Go to school. Get a job. Climb the corporate ladder. And eventually… retire! 

It’s the professional model we’ve all been taught to follow. 

But here’s the thing: a whopping 70% of Americans say they feel disengaged at their jobs. 

And 9 out of every 10 people say they’re willing to take a pay cut to do more-meaningful work. 

So how can YOU set yourself up for career joy?

Can you make a switch, even if you’re DECADES into your profession? 

And do you HAVE to make financial sacrifices to do what you love? 

How can you help college students in your life find the right career path?

Well, my guest has the answers. 

She’s Andrea Koppel, the Founder and CEO of Time4Coffee Podcast and College2Career Academy. Andrea, who has been extremely successful in multiple careers, says it’s NEVER too late to make a career jump – no matter how big.  

And that for some people, it’s one of the best decisions they’ll ever make. 

On this episode, Andrea and I reveal the secrets to helping your college-aged family members find the career they love, professional pivoting and how switching up your career could lead to a happier, more fulfilling life. 

On this episode you’ll learn:

  • How THIS could be standing in the way of you and your dream job – and what you can do about it TODAY (10:49)
  • The “imposter syndrome” trick – and how it can help you boost your confidence and land your dream job (even if it means making a major career switch) (14:20) 
  • Why “adaptable learners” have a huge advantage over others – and the first step to becoming more adaptable yourself (20:14)
  • How unlocking your “hidden superpowers” could be the catalyst to progressing your career AND your life – and the first steps you need to take  (28:00)
  • Why Andrea says THIS is enough to quit any job (it’s something tons of people face in the workplace) – and how to go about finding a job that’s right for you (32:30)
  • How my wife, Penny, made a lucrative career switch at age 50 – and how YOU can still follow your dreams (no matter your age or professional experience) (43:07)
