Women Who Went for It Podcast Host: Sara McArdle
In this Sara Solo Show, Sara delves into the third of her Seven Cs of Successful Career Change, a system that addresses the most common areas that industry changers need to develop in order to be successful in their shift. Sara points out that the third C, or Clarity, comes from taking ACTION!
Sara discusses:
  • The story of her career transformation in Women Who Went for It Episode 001
  • Sara's new office space: The Creativity Loft
  • The synchroncities that made her choice clear
  • Episodes that lay the foundation for this one:
  • Journal prompts:
    • Who's careers have you envied and thought - that is so cool? What's so cool about it?
    • Are there careers that you thought about when you were younger, but wrote them off as impractical or impossible? Is that true, when you take a deeper look?
  • Most people's backward approach to finding clarity
  • Clarity comes through taking action
  • The humility it takes to approach something new as a beginner
  • Start small with clarity: what are you clear about - right here, right now, from where you stand?
  • Picking 3 exciting "industry experiments"
  • How to tell the difference between something you're clearly excited about and something you're telling yourself you could be
  • The necessity of direct experience
  • The industry experiments that Sara did on her own career transformation journey
  • How all opportunities are connected to people
  • Industry experiments: classes, lectures, events, workshops, volunteer opportunities, etc.
  • How to set up accountability structures so you follow through on your experiments
  • More journal prompts for AFTER your industry experiments:
    • How does your body feel? Would you want to feel that way over and over, multiple days a week?
    • What were the people you interacted with like? Would you want to spend most of your working hours around folks like that?
    • What info did you take away? Contacts? What it takes to get into the field? Other resources? What people in that field do or don't like about their job?
    • Note any synchroncities
    • What are you clear about now? What do you know now that you didn't know before? And how does that inform what you do next?
  • How each little tidbit of clarity adds up to a bigger, clear picture
  • ...and more!
