Here’s what to expect from this episode:
Is transitioning into an Instructional Designer career the right path for you? Are you feeling stuck in your career? Maybe your job is stressful, keeping you in a paycheck-to-paycheck cycle or affecting your time with your family. Whatever the case, you’re ultimately searching for financial freedom, time freedom, or freedom to live a life you love. Transitioning careers is hard, and I’m not just here to help you become an instructional designer. I’m here to help you build a life you love that isn’t killing you in the process.
Having the knowledge and skills to become a corporate instructional designer means nothing if you can’t put them into practice. This episode will give you a background and insight into who I am and leave you feeling inspired to find your ‘why’ and motivated to achieve that goal of freedom.
- My background and how I discovered instructional design
- My experience transitioning from higher ed to corporate
- How I went from being laid off to doing contract work
- Deciding to start my business
- How I created a life of freedom
- Finding my passion in teaching instructional design
- The importance of finding your ‘why’
I want you to be able to design your life, not have work define your life. Where do you see yourself in the next five years, and how can you declare that? How can you make the declaration that it IS going to happen? It all starts with taking a leap of faith.
