Life is changing for a lot of people, and because of COVID, many companies have laid off employees. A lot of us are in jobs that we hate, and about 60% of middle income workers are looking at making a career change. My first guest, Helen Horyza, is the founder of the Career Coach Entrepreneur Academy certificate programs and inventor of the Elevations® career assessments. She has a gift for uncovering talent and directing it to achieve extraordinary results. 

She joins us today to discuss why people stay in jobs that they hate, what is driving people to consider changing their careers, the pros and cons of going back to college to re-career versus a certificate program, and the steps to making a successful and smooth career change

She joins us today to discuss the five most important money words that no one ever talks about, the one thing that people get wrong with money that unknowingly sabotages any chance of building wealth, and how to create passive income and win the money game.
