#057 - The benefits of making a lateral career move
Show Notes

This week we talk about the challenge of changing jobs and that a lateral move is sometimes strategically smarter for your longer term goals.

Main take aways of this episode:

- Being in a certain role for too long you might become too comfortable and in order to grow you'll need to become uncomfortable again.

- Take advice from others with a grain of salt, keep a varied group of "advisors" to make the best (unbiased) decision.

- Sometimes you have to take one step backwards, to take two or three steps forward.

- You are the an accumulation of your past experiences. Don't underestimate this! Leverage your adjacent skills when applying for a new job.

- And remember, you are never ready, you'll get ready when you actually start executing!
