"The Path to Career Reinvention"
A Free Webinar

Are you in an industry or job impacted by COVID, and worry that you may need to reinvent your career to continue bringing in the income you need?

Or are you just tired of where your job is heading, and want to move in a new direction?

Join me Thursday, December 3 at Noon Eastern for the third installment of my free Reinvent Your Career webinar series.

Covid-19 has led many companies to reduce operations and staff.

  • WarnerMedia told the Wall Street Journal on October 8 that it plans to cut thousands of jobs in order to reduce costs by 20%.
  • Cineworld, which owns Picturehouse and Regal, closed all their theaters worldwide on October 5, impacting 40,000 jobs in the US.
  • Shell announced they are cutting up to 9,000 jobs, or roughly 10% of their workforce.
  • On October 1, United Airlines furloughed 13,000 people.
  • Disney announced on September 29 that it was cutting 28,000 jobs from its theme parks division.

    At the same time, there are businesses and industries that are thriving. Many will need to change jobs, industries, or may even need a complete career makeover to survive. How do you successfully cross over?

    I've worked with numerous clients who reinvented themselves. Sometimes this involved a minor shift, others a radical change. I've also made two successful career transitions myself, and want to share what I've learned. And I want to bring into the mix what has worked for others. Thus, I've embarked on a series of webinars to explore the clues that helped create successful transitions, to help you uncover the recipe for reinvention.

    The recipe can vary a bit depending on your specific situation, such as:
  • Being forced to make a change, vs. deciding to pursue something new yourself;
  • How big a shift you seek to make;
  • Whether you are a sole breadwinner, or have another income to help support your change;
  • If you are moving from a corporate tole to your own independent practice.

    So I'm interviewing people from different walks of life, helping you see how to pick and choose those elements that will apply best to your own situation.

    For this third webinar, I have the pleasure of interviewing my good friend Alan Seiden about his successful transition from a job where he couldn't fully develop his talents, to his own consulting practice that completely replaced his corporate income within a year. Alan has grown his practice to include a half dozen subcontractors, and is considered a rock star in his niche!

    I'm going to probe into what sparked the change, and what made it work, to unearth the keys to Alan's success, that you can then apply to your own career. This will be an interactive webinar, where Alan will also respond to your specific questions.

    Join us as we embark on this 1 hour journey Thursday, December 3 at Noon Eastern / 11AM Central / 10AM Mountain / 9AM Pacific.
    (If you can't make it live, I will make a recording available to registrants for a limited time afterwards.)
