Have you made a New Year’s resolution?

Making New Year’s resolutions can be a great way of setting out achievable goals. From altering old habits to reviewing your career, it’s time to step up and make a significant change. If this resonates with you, make sure you read on to discover our top tips to help with the next steps.

Taking the next step in your career

Moving forward can be daunting, especially if you have become comfortable in your current role. Why not begin your journey by simply looking at all your career change options? This will help you set goals and establish exactly what it is you are aiming for.

  1. Climbing the career ladder

Whether you choose to stay within your current industry or not, you may decide that climbing the career ladder and seeking further employment is the right path for you.

  1. Setting out on your own venture

Starting a business from scratch is another option. This can take time and money to build, but once established you could find yourself reaping the rewards.

  1. Investing in a franchise

Owning a franchise is a great option for those not looking for direct employment but do not wish to start a business from scratch.

3 top tips to help with your career change/progression
  1. Embrace a challenge

Sometimes over thinking a situation can hold you back. Can I go through a career change at my age? Can I still support my family while changing my career? Is a career change later in life a good idea? It’s time to embrace a challenge, develop your skills, learn and grow.

  1. Set out goals

What are your aspirations? Mapping out your journey and setting specific, achievable career goals can help give your clarity and focus. By doing this you will also be able to trach your progress, break down larger goals to make them manageable and erase any doubts that are preventing you from taking the leap.

  1. Consider your desired lifestyle

When you are setting out your goals, make sure they align with the lifestyle you are aiming for. Establishing a business from scratch will take time and may not be the best option if you are looking for a career change without a pay cut. On the other hand, exploring the option of a franchise would offer you a much better work/life balance and you can become established fairly quickly. Below is an example of a timeline which can be achieved with a Clear Brew franchise.

Key points to note

It’s important to embrace a challenge and clearly set out your goals when you are looking to take the next step in your working life. Once you have established a path that suits you and your lifestyle, you will find your career flourishing.
