Dear Fred

Good Morning Fred: When considering a career shift or change, what questions should one ask themselves and/or others to make the best decision going forward? Thanks!!!

Fred's Response

I like to ask myself in any major change: who will I be in five years based on this change? Will I use more of my talent; will I be more effective with my associates; will I feel that I am making a bigger difference? Most people change to increase their income but I like to think of my career as having meaning, not just a way to move for more money. Also, I think we owe it to our families to consider their best interests, as well, when making career moves.
