It's great to hear from people that already have a good career but are not willing to settle for it. There are a lot of people out there will well paid secure jobs that still feel there is more to life. I applaude it. This is the email I received this week.
"I have been a criminal barrister for 12 years and army officer prior to that. Degree in geography/Msc in Int. relations. 40 years old. Interests: the great outdoors, travel, international politics, the enviroment, Spanish language and Latin American matters. I am looking for a new career direction. Could you direct me to websites or organisations that would offer careers to someone with my background and interests?"
My suggestion is that you talk to Ali at www.the9rules.com He is a fascinating person and for professional people that are shaking things up, 9rules is the very thing as you are way beyond career advice.
