Starting a New Career in MidLife — 13 Comments

  1. I’ve made these statements several times but then I finally bit the bullet and jumped in. It’s been pretty good so far. These are great tips though.

  2. Great advice here, Pete. I’m about to come off maternity leave and loathe the idea of leaving my baby with a sitter, your tips have given me a good place to start.

    • Ah, I remember those days. It’s so hard to leave the baby at home. Luckily for you, you’re a new mother during a time when there are so many options available online. This site alone has so many great ideas. Have you been able to find something that you think will work for you?

    • I dealt with the same. I took a year off with my baby. It was so hard going back to work. There are a lot of great tips here. Good luck and congrats on your baby.

    • My kids are the reason I am trying to find something at home as well. I have three kids, two of whom are home-schooled, but I want to contribute to the finances as well. Wealthy Affiliate looks like it might be a good option.

  3. I need to work through these questions that you posed. It will help me gain some clarity on my next steps. Did you make a radical career change or did you take small baby steps? Just curious.

    • Hi Leroy, yes that’s a good idea to consider the angles and cost before starting something new, and I did. I started with the free membership and made a couple of websites and my shoulder injuries forced me to retire early so every day I take baby steps, some days lots of steps. Thanks for checking things out..I just renewed my membership and enjoy it a lot.

      • That’s a great story, Pete. Often it feels like change has to take place in one giant leap. It’s a lot easier to think of change in baby steps. I’m sorry to hear about your shoulder – glad you were able to make the best of it and I hope that you are doing much better! Would it be terribly rude to ask how long it took to make the $1600/month that the site claims you can make from only one website using Wealthy Affiliate? I apologize if that’s rude and you can just ignore me!!

        • Eric was a firefighter in Texas and joined in January 2017 and wrote that report in early November 2017. He’s traveling around the world as the blog mentions and is loving every minute of it. Thanks for reading and commenting.

  4. Great post Pete!

    I’ve been with WA for 3 years and I absolutely love it. I think this is one of the best programs online for learning how to earn. There is plenty of instruction and you can go at your own pace. The options are truly endless and can help anyone learn to build sites on their own or build and earn from WA itself. You could really do both! I have never regretted starting and despite its learning curve, it has given me the foundation that I needed in order to grow. Great post Pete!

  5. I’ve been thinking of changing careers and have also decided to hire a career coach. I’m also thinking that I’d like a way to document my experience, preferably through a blog or site. I love how you laid out this post. It is both inspirational and informative. I think that joining WA can help me to achieve my goal of documenting. I think I’ll use your link to get started. Do you have any advice or suggestions for me?
