How To Finance Big Career Changes

A popular excuse for not making a big career change is money.† You donít have enough money to train for new skills, to hire a career coach, or to pay for whatever support you need for the big change.† Furthermore, you need the income you have for other things Ė you donít have any left over to save for the big change and you certainly donít have the option of quitting to focus more time on the big change.

A popular excuse for not making a big career change is money.† You donít have enough money to train for new skills, to hire a career coach, or to pay for whatever support you need for the big change.† Furthermore, you need the income you have for other things Ė you donít have any left over to save for the big change and you certainly donít have the option of quitting to focus more time on the big change.† However, although money is a legitimate consideration, it is not an obstacle you canít overcome.† It comes down to the math:† how much do you need and where will you get it.

Think Robin Hood.† Take from one place to give to another.† Look at your discretionary income after the fixed bills are paid.† Where can you shave off dollars to allocate towards your career change?†

Raise your income.† Can you start a side consulting business and use the proceeds for the big change?† The graphic designer can create websites, the financial planner can give Quicken tutorials.† I know a marketing director who did a brand strategy for a start-up to pay for her kidsí new swing set.† However, remember that you need your energy for the big change -- this job is just for money so pick something you know you can do in which you wonít get too invested.

Challenge your assumptions.† Still donít have enough?† Have you really separated out discretionary income or are non-essentials still in there?† (Cable TV is not an essential when you are questioning all expenses.)† Are you sure you need this money?† (Can you take a workshop instead of a long-term class?)† Are you sure you have itemized all expenses?† (When you are trying to find the wasted dollars, you need to take a microscope to your spending.)† There are always gaps between what you actually spend and what you think you spendArticle Search, so be willing to challenge your memory and actually look.
