Considering a career change? Considering a career change? Jill Rapperport was overseeing a group of Latin America business magazines at Ziff-Davis Publishing. But with all the meetings, conference calls, sales appointments, long hours and travel, there was no time for her daughter or herself. "I was aging rapidly," she says. Now she's teaching adults and children to better manage stress through yoga. Rapperport, president of Soaring Eagle Yoga, has these tips for realizing career and life dreams:
- Take some quiet time to connect with yourself. Listen to what really excites you, thrills you, or nags at you.
- Build a support structure around you to help with making your dream or career change happen.
- Get clear on your vision. It may be that you change your role in your current career.
- Create action steps to make the change happen.
