Career Change Advice with Dana Cowin
4 days ago
Listener Lisa asked for me to do a show on midlife career change, pivoting, reinvention...etc. She wrote, "I’m a full-time working mom of 2 boys, 11 & 13. I was the first person in my family to go to college and worked 3 jobs to pay my own way. I couldn’t wait to get to corporate America, and I have been a successful sales rep for 20 years and have learned a lot, but as I approach my 50th birthday I feel like I need a change. There seems to be a lot of focus in the media on Millenials, but how about the Gen-X ers? I’m sure there are a lot of us who feel the same way and don’t know where to start (so we don’t) or what resources are available or are afraid to change for many reasons i.e. How do we translate our current skills to a new position? Can we maintain our salary level? Do companies view us too old? Etc. and would appreciate some direction and maybe a kick in the pants to get started!" So today I'm speaking with Dana Cowin, the Former Editor and Chief of Food and Wine Magazine and Podcast Host for Speaking Broadly. Yes, THE Dana Cowin who was at the helm for all that is great about Food & Wine. Dana and I became friends through the Bacardi Women’s Empowerment Series and she frequently discussed how she became a career guru so I put her knowledge to the test on my show. Dana has so much great information from her personal career change experience but also mentoring hundreds of people over her extensive career. This show is great for anyone at any stage thinking about making a career change. And now here’s my newest friend, Dana Cowin.
