The Career Change Diaries Podcast: Episode 5


In August's episode, we speak to Rachel Schofield, who worked for the BBC as a journalist and news presenter for 20 years, before training as a career and personal development coach.

Rachel discusses how even ‘sexy' jobs can have their downsides, and how it can be hard to let go of a career that defines a large part of your identity.

We hear how simply exploring and testing your new ideas first can free you up to move forward, as well as how to overcome common fears related to career change.

Rachel talks us through her own career transition, the uncomfortableness of ’starting again’, and how she built up her business over time.

There’s also a fascinating discussion around why we find change so hard, according to neuroscience, and how to best work with our brains so they don’t hold us back.
