The Career Change Diaries Podcast: Episode 13


For April’s episode of the Podcast, I spoke to career changer, Milly Pelmore.

Before making the leap into sports coaching and education, Milly worked in the charity sector, running innovation teams to develop new products and services in a wide range of areas including health, sport for good and children’s services. Although motivated by the end goal of supporting people, a life behind the desk wasn’t enough, and last year Milly left it all behind with the goal to ‘figure it out.’

Milly talks about how she fell into her career, and how she knew a career change was needed when each new job she tried just didn’t resolve the nagging feeling that the career wasn’t right for her. In order to move forward, she had to let go of societal expectations, and the assumed need to have it all figured out before taking her first steps in the right direction.

Milly also discusses how putting herself out there, believing in what she had to offer, and having patience with the process helped her move into work that now lights her up, and she feels proud to talk about.

Have a listen to the full episode below. Also available on Apple Podcasts and YouTube.
