It ‘s no longer enough to simply dream – it’s now more about making the best decisions possible in uncertain, confusing times — whether as individuals, teams or as organizational leaders.

When we come to a crossroads in our lives the path you’ve been on may feel like a dead-end.

But, you have many more options available to you than you initially realize.

You can choose any one of 11 options:

  1. Change positions in same organization;
  2. Change organizations in same field;
  3. Change careers;
  4. Work in the same job while moonlighting;
  5. Start a business from scratch;
  6. Buy a business with its own customers;
  7. Buy a franchise with a proven business model;
  8. Launch a consulting practice;
  9. Turn a hobby or artistic talent into a lifestyle business;
  10. Move to a lower-cost-of-living community and live on your investments and volunteer; or
  11. Retire, yet freelance or consult to supplement your income.
