    Hey Lorraine,
    I’m all over the place with my career and I’ve been a huge fan of your work for a while now and would love any extra advice or anything. I studied graphic design but realised that wasn’t for me, then worked in retail for a while, then as a receptionist for a corporate company and have just recently moved to London as I am from Sydney, Australia. I love to cook and travel but I don’t know how to make that into a successful career? As I’ve been in London for two months now and it’s great I had to start working in a hotel to pay for my rent.

      Hi there,
      Thanks so much for your email. I love how you have been trying different things and searching for waht feels right for you. Sometimes finding the right thing can take a little longer than expected. How about looking at work in a foodie or travel magazine Or looking at getting work on a foodie/travel website. Also starting a blog and or a podcast and documenting the food that you eat and the places that you go within London if you are not travelling far at the moment. Keep reaching out and talking to people, commenting on their social media platforms and then I am sure the right thing will come to you. It sounds like you are on an exciting path and it is great that you know the kind of direction you want to be going in. Lorraine xxxx

    Thank you Lorraine,
    I have also had a varied career, started in engineering, on the factory floor so to speak, then moved into sales, (which I hated), then spent 10 glorious years as a Gym instructor/aerobics teacher & Sports Massage Therapist & Reiki practitioner, this was the time in my life when work was a joy, I would arrive early, stay late, go in on my day off, just helping people with their fitness goals, whether small or large was very fulfilling I always felt as though I was being paid to socialize with people – the only drawback was the low £££££, so it was with regret that after I got married and my son was born, I had to get a ‘real’ job to pay the bills. I’m now in my mid 50’s, stuck in a boring job, but cant give up because I need to pay the mortgage. I’ve gone back to college and re-trained as an Adult Education IT tutor, and re done my basic English and Math’s qualifications, but the only jobs available are part-time. I’m really hoping that at some point in my career, I will be able to do it. I tell my son to follow his passion, he’s starting college this September, and I hope he finds a job that he loves, then it doesn’t feel like work.
    I feel its probably too late to lead a happier, more fulfilling and more enriched life, as far as work is concerned, but my wife and my son provide that fulfillment, but I will listen to your podcast, and I hope I can pass on your inspiration to my boy.

    You don’t need my story other then YES, this is me too, a career chameleon. From Business Degree to Letting agent, cake decorating to childcare. I know I am creative, I can often see what OTHERS need to do to grow themselves and motion are then but myself?! I’m just being of sound mind and body having reached out for help with Generalised Anxiety and started the gym 8 wks ago. I have a blog template ready to go (but with two boys need to make the time to work on it)so perhaps need to start channeling my own journey into that. Thanks for the spark to get me going again today

      Wonderful. Career Chameleon you! Wow you have done so many things. I have so much respect for you reaching out regarding your anxiety. And good for you also for starting the gym. Most of the time I find writing very relaxing and a healthy escape from the madness of life sometimes. I do hope you start writing your blog soon, It is really rewarding. Lorraine x

    Love this topic, as someone who never found their calling, am now a mom of two young girls and choose to be a stay at home mom. I’m loving watching them grow and being there for them, but I’m starting to get that itch to do something for me, something that helps others. My current thought is to become a photographer, to help people capture moments. I want to give them photos of true emotion not staged fake smiles stiff poses. And to do it all for a reasonable cost I feel the career of family photographers are growing but so are the costs. It shouldn’t be a luxury to have beautiful family photos it should be a right for everyone; for when we’re gone all they’ll have left are photos.
