Starting from scratch is one of the worst fears faced by those who want to recycle their work profile.
In many cases we must resort to specific training to adapt.
There are already many workers who have stopped to think about their professional future and then make a radical change and evolve within or outside their area of knowledge.
In the latter case it is not easy to start from scratch , labor recycling costs time, effort and in some cases, even money. But the examples show that it is worth it.
The organization of young entrepreneurs Young Entrepreneurs Council has noted that the main causes that drive professional recycling are to note that our employment has no way out or does not bring us the desired satisfaction.
This also adds to the influence of technological advances and the digital world in the business sector; Not being up to date with the latest technologies makes us feel outdated and pushes us to join this wave of modernity.
Some entrepreneurs from the YEC have taken the trouble to describe how they achieved success in totally unknown business sectors thanks to the effort, perseverance and desire to get what they wanted.
1.- Change the focus
Keep in mind that this does not mean that we have failed or that everything we have done so far has not worked for anything. Quite the opposite. It has helped you to get here and realize what you really want in your life.
2.- Ask for advice from senior professionals
“The Devil knows more by old than by Devil,” says the famous saying. The best tips to start in a new industry can be received from those who have already been through this and who, based on trial and error, are where they are. Talking with them and asking them our questions will help us visualize the system better.
3.- Meet potential clients of the new sector
It is also recommended to meet potential customers or users of this new industry. You never know, but perhaps our previous professional experience can give us a bonus in this new stage.
4.- Be always curious
Everything is not in the books and we know that from experience. The tips, advice, oddities, anecdotes and everything that enriches a business sector is infinite. But, we are also lucky to have Internet. It will be nice to research in blogs, forums or pages dedicated to this new industry.
5.- Seek to train you in the subject
It is good to document ourselves but it is recommended to follow an adequate formation of the subject More than anything to always move forward and not stagnate or stay with misconceptions. There are online and even free courses that we can do and combine with other activities
Think for a moment about the entire network of contacts you’ve formed by dedicating yourself to your current job. Now we have to start over. But there are also many ‘newbies’ like you in this sector, people with more or less experience wanting to exchange them with others. Go to events, forums, talks … become a member of a community .
7.- Overcome fears
If the idea is around our head it is because we really want to do it. Let’s not wait any longer, the change will be for the better and we know it. It’s time to take courage.
Nobody said it was easy, but at least we have the motivation to know that if we make the effort it is for something better.
