I get it, quitting a job can be hard sometimes.

It’s easy if the workplace is toxic, or you have a terrible boss or super low pay, but sometimes those external factors aren’t there. You could be working a job that is perfectly fine. It pays the bills. It’s not perfect, but it has its benefits. The people are nice enough, and most of all, you’re comfortable.

But deep down inside, you know this isn’t the right fit.

Whether it’s because of a lack of growth or lack of passion, no matter how great a job is, it may not be for you. Here are the 8 mantras that will inspire you to take action and make your next career change!

The 5 Podcasts Every Millennial Needs To Listen To Get Ahead

I’m going to say this right now: I feel like I was not late to the podcast game, but I was definitely hesitant of it.
I’d heard of podcasts years and years ago but I never really understood why anyone would choose to listen to podcasts over watching a YouTube videos or reading blog posts. Today, I’m happy to say I’m a full convert. I love podcasts – even more than the beauty YouTube videos I used to binge every weekend.
ese are the 5 podcasts I feel that have had the most influential impact on me. You’ll notice when going through the list that these podcasts have a few things in common:

1. They are all lead by women who know how to get ahead in life.
2. They are all extremely long and detailed.
3. These podcasts are for people who want to get ahead in life with actionable steps.

The One Career Changing Tool I Use To Ace Every Job Interview (With Free Downloadable Guide!)

If you’re like me, then even the thought of a job interview makes you sick. And even though I’ve gotten better at calming my nerves before an interview, the actual process still stresses me out. Mostly because, as much as I prepare, I tend to get nervous and completely blank out during job interviews.

Until I created the one career-changing tool that has helped me master my nerves and allowed me to think on feet when I inevitably blank out.

3 Ways To Conquer Your Nerves and Ace Every Interview (with free guide!)

If you’re anything like me, you also hate job interviews. They are such a necessary part of growing up but it’s something that can be very nerve-wracking and intimidating.

And while the age old advice of “it gets easier the more you do it” is true; I think it should be modified, to “it gets easier the more you do it, but it’s going to be painful, stressful and probably pretty embarrassing along the way.”

Alternative Education Options Other than University

Happy end of June! Which means that not only is 2018 half over (yikes!), but also that its graduation season.

With the excitement of finishing school to move on to the next adventure, I think there’s a lot of pressure to maintain a certain image by going to a prestigious school or having a particular career path. But there are so many pathways to “success” and ultimately it’s dependant on your definition. Here are just a few options to look at if you are looking for alternative education options to start or change your career – without paying the price of a 4 year school.

Must-Ask Questions Before Investing In A University Major/Career Path

It’s not just about the money and job market. With the fast paced changes, building a flexible and adaptable career can make all the difference.

Like most investments, investing in an education to a career path, requires a lot of research. But financials and job markets are only a part of the research.

So here are 8 key questions (bolded throughout) you need to ask yourself before investing in a career path (including what I think is the most overlooked section – lifestyle!).

Hi there!
My name is Kimberly and I'm from Vancouver, BC. I started MLA as a way to share and help millennials through adulthood and the whole adulting process.
In this blog, you'll find real and honest examples of how I'm navigating adulthood. I've read a lot of content about growing up, but I have found it hard to find real-life examples of how to apply this advice.
So I created MLA as a space to share all the lessons of becoming an adult - on a budget! I hope you find this helpful and feel free to keep in touch at kimberly[at]millenniallifeadmin.com.
Lastly, if you’re looking for ways to further connect, I hope you’ll consider joining the MLA Newsletter!
Talk soon!
