Marc Miller: Pivot Like a Pro

Marc Miller is the founder of www.careerpivot.com, a career design firm for those “in the second half of life” that are looking to make a career change.  Mr. Miller has made seven career pivots and he expands on a few of them in this episode.  Marc starts the podcast by identifying the realities of a career pivot. Most people will do one of two things, either they will remain in their current field but take on a new skill or they will repurpose their existing skills in a different industry.  Most importantly, when people make these incremental career changes they will need help.  They will need someone to pick them up when they fall down, like a teammate running a marathon with you or a family member cheering you as you get gasp for oxygen in the 9th mile.
