18. How To Figure Out Your Next Career Move With Baily Hancock
I’m thrilled to introduce The Career Experiment creator and collaboration consultant, Baily Hancock. Baily is an entrepreneur and self-professed “multi-passionate” who had a quarter-life crisis and “pressed the explode button” on her traditional life in Florida and moved across the country to California to explore her curiosities and experiment with different career possibilities.
During her year and a half journey, Baily discovers that throughout her journey, from having a variety of random and odd jobs (all of which she had a blast doing), she had acquired the skills and knowledge needed to figure out her next step. Through self-reflection she identifies her deal breakers, motivators, passions, and values, which culminated in her latest endeavor, The Career Experiment.
Baily is a true teacher and firm believer in living your best life and helping people make the most of their lives. This episode is sure to incite the entrepreneur in us all and leave you thinking, “Is it time to lose my mind?”
