Kris Macchiarola left the corporate world because her activities there just didn’t align with her core values and priorities. What she discovered after leaving that world is a community of women in varying types of transitions in their lives: Divorce, empty nesting, career changes, priority changes, and a general desire for something different in their lives.
There appears to be three responses to these major life adjustments:
- People see an open door and choose to turn back around to the known dynamics of their previous jobs, industries, and types of partners, regardless of happiness and fulfillment.
- People see an open door and freeze, not knowing which opportunity to take because there seem to be too many options.
- People see an open door and leap across the threshold, choosing risk over safety and comfort because there are simply no other options for them.
In this podcast episode, we share some of our own stories of transition, the stories of some of our friends, and some important strategies and thought processes to consider in this changing world of transition.
