6 ways to know it's time for a career change WASHINGTON, D.C. -- 1) You have a vision for the future that's different from your reality. Break tasks up into manageable milestones, so you can slowly and mindfully make a positive life change while documenting what you've accomplished. 2) You're often curious about what other people do. Seeing the satisfaction that friends derive from their jobs is a good sign that it may be time to consider a pivot on how you're spending your days.

3) You want to make more money. If you see an income cap in your current work field, it's worth exploring different paths that will fulfill your needs over the long-run. 4) You're tired of having a boss. Well, you've seen what your boss does and have thought, "I could do that." Starting a business or becoming a freelancer are both options worth thinking through.

5) You've imagined doing your hobby as your full-time job. What keeps you up at night? Is it your current job, or is it something you do on the side? Having a passion for your work is the first step toward making a successful change. 6) You're ready for a challenge. Changing jobs, becoming a freelancer or starting a business have the potential to be the most rewarding and lucrative thing you do. If you're ready to set and achieve goals, now's the time to take the plunge!
