Episode Notes

Do you regret leaving your corporate job? In today’s episode, I will be sharing a very interesting topic from my Facebook live video series.  This is a topic that a lot of people ask me about. It’s about people that are really keen to move back into corporate career, but they may be reluctant to do so.  Coming back to a corporate career, following a maternity leave break, even an extended period where you've been at home taking care of kids or you've had your own business for a decade or so, or you had a completely different career, creative career for example, and it's time now or you really want to reconsider your choices. So is it possible to go back to the career you once had? Find out in this podcast.

Key takeaways:

  1. The best time to open a business is in your 20s and 40s. In your 20s you have a lot of energy, you have no debt, and you have no kids or family. If anything goes wrong a hundred times, you can always go back to the corporate sector. In your 40s, you have less debt and less expenses, you can invest in other things.
  2. Whatever you decide to do, it doesn't have to be forever.
  3. People with entrepreneurial capacity and skill set are so needed in the corporate sector. Because you need people internally that will change things, that will make the workplace more vibrant, more interesting and more in times with what's happening around the world.
  4. Another reason why you may want to stay in the corporate sector or go back to the corporate sector is to build a better runway. Building a better runway means saving money so you can bootstrap your business or start up.
  5. For women who are still raising young children, the corporate sector sometimes is better for that than having your own business. Because if you're starting your business and having kids at the same time, it can be really overwhelming.
