Take a vacation and learn a new career!

Ok so I wasn't learning a new career on my recent vacation to Thailand, but it was great to network with new and interesting people. So much so, that I talked on Martha Stewart Radio about how to network on vacation. Read all about it on Martha Stewart Living's Radio blog!

Vacation can lead to career change as well. For those of you who don't know, I'm an affiliate coach for VocationVacations (VV) - a company dedicated to helping people test drive their dream jobs. It's an amazing concept in which you can spend a weekend paired up with a mentor who does that dream job for a living. It's a great way to learn the in's and out's of a career BEFORE making a career change.

One of my clients found his landscape architecture Vocation Vacation to be very helpful in confirming that was the next career for him. He was also able to build a friendship and long-term network with his mentor. What a win-win!

If you've been contemplating a new career but aren't sure how to make it happen, read my recent blog post on the VV website. I offer tips and advice for making your career change a reality!
