Are you Ready for a Sea Change?

So you’ve worked hard, built a successful career, gained experience and achieved lots. Yet somehow your life seems to reached a plateau.

You spend long hours commuting, frustratingly long hours at work and the lines between work and life have blurred. The weeks, months and years fly by and your family is growing up seemingly without you. Job security is at best uncertain and there’s precious little time to do the things you love.

Maybe you’re at a crossroads where you’re ready to make a major lifestyle change but just aren’t sure how to make it happen or how to make it work.

If this looks, sounds and feels familiar, maybe you’re ready for a sea change. For many people, the thought of making such a major change can be overwhelming and full of uncertainty. Added to which there’s now many more ways to do it which can be downright confusing!

I’m currently pursuing alternative employment opportunities (changing jobs, approaching retirement, facing redundancy or moving location)
I’ve already achieved a level of success in my professional life and am wondering ‘what next?’
I have a long held dream I’d love to pursue and feel like ‘now’ is the time to realize it.
The reasons I moved to where I live now don’t seem to exist anymore.
I feel ‘burnt out’ by the relentlessness of city life – long hours, endless commuting, stress and poor work life balance with precious little time to be with those I love, doing what I love.
My current job is boring, predictable, lacks challenge and is often frustrating. I feel like it’s past it’s ‘use by’ date.
I love the thought of doing something that matters – a simpler and more fulfilling life by the sea, in the country, working from home, travelling or living overseas.
I’d like to change what I do and where I live but am not sure about either.
I know where and how I’d like to live, I just don’t know how to bridge the gap between today’s reality and the dream.
I sometimes wonder how people who live in a great location and enjoy an idyllic lifestyle, (doing what they love, being how they want to be) did it.
I’m curious to see how easy it is to make a successful sea change.
I know there are lots of different options available but am not sure where to start or how to make it happen.
I’m not sure how much money I’d need or how to make a sea change lifestyle possible and sustainable.
I’m not sure about the risks (what could go wrong) and am not confident about how to make such a big change with ‘eyes wide open’
I’m self-motivated, fully committed and prepared to take a calculated risk. I’d do whatever it takes to make my sea change a success.
