How I made a major career change in my 30s, with Elke Rubach
We spent our 20s working our way up, making a lot of efforts to gain that extra bit of responsibility, money or fancy-sounding title, but when 30 comes knocking, the chances are you've changed. Your goals and aspirations have moved in a different direction.
Yes, it might feel a bit scary to switch things up but it's never too late to start something you truly want to be doing. Changing your career in your 30s takes grit and courage. Patience is key. You'll have to work hard, but more importantly work smart. Once you get where you want to be, you will be thrilled with the pay off.
