Webinar Overview

Choose Your Career: Without Tests, Assessments or Crystal Balls

Most people think career development follows a straight line. You’ll hear that choosing your career calls for discovering exactly what you want and matching your innate skills and talents to fit that career.

 Dr. Cathy Goodwin says, “Nonsense! The career path you’ll be following ten years from now probably hasn’t been invented yet. Cathy introduces the tools, concepts and mindset for realistic career decisions that will help you reach your dream in the brave new world of the 21st century.

The three strategies Cathy will share with you include:

1) Have an adventure! Use the time in your twenties to do things you can’t do any other time.

2) Take charge of your career. Don’t be put in a position where your survival depends on a particular job, boss or client.

3) Prepare for the unexpected. The career you’ll have 10 years from now may not be invented yet.

Presenter: Cathy Goodwin

I have been online for over a decade, helping others to achieve their goals in areas ranging from career change to small business growth.  I learned online marketing to promote my career site, Midlife Career Strategy. I’m a published author, written hundreds of articles and dozens of websites, and really get a kick out of seeing my clients enjoy the benefits of what they learn and put into practice.

When you want to know how to create high-converting marketing materials, I’m your person. I’ve written content for everything from websites to landing pages to blog posts… and more. I particularly enjoy transforming complex ideas into clear, conversational language that will resonate with your ideal prospects. I’m also here to help “storify” your content: how to get your point across by telling stories.

As far as career change, I still work with midlife, mid-career clients. Many want to pivot to self-employment and I help them get started.   I’d love to help you review your career options so you can get closer to filling your dream, whether it’s a “laptop lifestyle” or a new corporate career.

When anyone asks me what’s the secret to being successful in marketing yourself or your company, I tell them “Be yourself…and be adventurous!”
