It’s a New Year! Ready for a New Career?

Here we are once again, ready to usher in a whole new year of unlimited possibilities! And with it, a whole new opportunity to launch the career you always dreamed of. It’s true. The annual New Years celebration really is a time to reflect on where you’ve been, how you liked it and where you go from here. So, as we pause to take inventory of what we liked about our lives last year and what we’d like to toss into the trash bin, consider asking yourself some of these important questions so you can make this year the one where dreams happen!

What do I want to be when I grow up – If you answered quickly and off the cuff, you may want to really evaluate your response. After all, when you were ten, you might have answered that question with rodeo clown or astronaut, without considering the fact that you are allergic to horses and afraid of heights. The point is, figuring out what kind of career path will take you to your happy place is a big decision. It’s important to think carefully about what you realistically envision yourself doing on a daily basis.

Big city vs small town – Are you a people person or do you prefer to work in quiet solitude? Enjoy the hustle and bustle of a noisy city or the charm and laid-back vibe of a small town? Let’s face it, figuring out what type of work environment suits you the best is as important as figuring out what you want to do.

Money may not buy happiness – But not having the finances to enjoy your life can certainly contribute to unhappiness. So yes, you have to consider how much money you need to live, not to mention how much your dream career could ultimately cost to achieve and what it might pay when you get there. Putting the right financial formula in place can help you prepare for the journey that lies ahead.

You’ve contemplated the what, where and how much questions about your future and realize that your addiction to all things style, your love of helping your friends find just the right look and your stellar people skills all add up to a career in the world of beauty! But you’re not there yet. The beauty industry offers so many great career choices but which one is right for you? Is it the cosmetologist making dreams happen one fantastic cut at a time?
