Show Notes Chapter Markers

How good is your gut instinct? Have you ever had the intuitive hit and just figured this was what you were supposed to do? Perhaps, you decided on a job offer, and it turned out well for you. Maybe you chose one offer and wondered how things would have been if you had taken the other offer. You will face many crossroads in your career, and your decision will likely be based upon how well you trust your gut. 

 

In this episode, I’m taking you through a few examples of how you can leverage your previous experiences and talent to help you make a more informed decision about whatever is next for your career as you build, and learn to trust, your internal GPS. I’ll guide you through an exercise about taking a pulse check, how to manage self-doubt, and how to trust your GPS when deciding between two job offers.
