Today I’m excited to welcome Alison Cardy to The Quarter Life Comeback podcast.

Alison Cardy is a career change specialist who helps young adults navigate career crossroads and pivot to more fulfilling work.

But before taking on this role, Alison was an unhappy quarter lifer herself, stuck at a desk as an accountant. Rather than sitting there feeling miserable for herself, she decided to start trying different things that interested her.

Through this experimentation, Alison developed a love for coaching and helping others, which she now does in her career coaching practice.

This episode was a little different, as we used a case study throughout the interview to demonstrate how to apply the wisdom Alison shared. The interview is packed with actionable steps for figuring out what it is you ACTUALLY want to do, and then taking the steps to start making it happen.
