Scott Ingham, Territory Business Manager
Scott had built a great career working for the same company for 18 years. When he began to feel a sense of stagnation and restlessness, he worried he might be too late in his career journey to make the change he desired.

Starting a new career later in life can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. As we age, we may feel like we’re too set in our ways to change, or that time is running out. However, the truth is that a career change can be just what we need to reignite our passion and drive.
Take Scott, for example. After 18 years in the same job, he realized that he was no longer challenged or fulfilled. Despite his fears of being too old or not having enough time, he made the decision to pursue a new career path.
One of the biggest challenges he faced was managing his time between work, family, and pursuing his new career goals. However, he found that by adjusting his mindset and creating a master schedule with the help of a coach, he was able to integrate his career change work into his daily life.
It’s important to remember that your support system can play a big role in helping you achieve your goals. By communicating your plans and needs to your loved ones, you can find ways to make the transition easier for everyone involved.
Despite his initial doubts and fears, Scott was able to overcome his limiting beliefs and successfully switch to a new role in just six months. This is a testament to the fact that it’s never too late to make a change and pursue your dreams.

One of the most key things we talked about was feeling instead of thinking, I would think all the time, about this and that, I would just take time to feel. That is the key for really understanding where you are supposed to be and what you love.
Scott, and Lisa and the whole team it's been a pleasure to work with you. I’ve been talking to everyone about your program and think the best of the work you do and the tools you put out. It took me a few months to look for outside help. That was the thing I needed. Particularly as someone who has been successful it was hard for me to say I could not do this by myself. I’m a smart person I should be able to figure this out. As soon as I had my first career coaching experience it completely turned around my approach to find a new job. It completely gave me the power back and the tools I needed. If you know exactly what you want to do, you probably aren’t listening to this podcast, but if you don’t know there are a lot of tools, and resources, and people out there that can help you. For me that made all the difference.
