Are you currently working in an industry that’s not related to healthcare or the wellness field, but you would really love to make a change and start building a career in wellness?

If you’re like many people I talk to, you might have some doubts about your ability to do that.

You might have questioned whether it’s something you can even do, or you might have thought things like “who am I to talk to people about their wellness?” because you don’t have a background in it.

And if that sounds familiar, then this podcast episode and YouTube video is for you.

My guest today, Jenn Trepeck, runs a thriving business in the wellness space, and has a terrific podcast of her own, called Salad With A Side Of Fries. But she didn’t start out that way. In fact, Jenn started moving into the wellness field and started her company as a side hustle, while working full time in hedge funds in New York City.

The wisdom that Jenn shares in this episode can actually apply to anyone who is contemplating a career change, but has some fears and hesitations that are holding them back …no matter what industry you’re starting in and what industry you’re looking to pivot into…but of course it especially applies if you’re feeling called to the wellness space.

Here’s where you can listen in to our conversation:

I hope you enjoyed my chat with Jenn! Especially if you’ve been sitting on the sidelines of the wellness industry for a while, feeling like an outsider looking in and wanting to take the leap but not knowing how to get started…I really hope that Jenn’s story has inspired you to just get started. Take those first few steps, it doesn’t have to be all or nothing, but the key is just getting started. 

Changing Careers From One Industry To Another

I love career changers. If the career you’re in is no longer working for you, then I want to empower you to make the change now. It doesn’t matter that you don’t have a healthcare background or that you worked in a totally different industry. There are definitely ways that you can get started now, and work your way toward an entirely new career for yourself.

I’d love to know your thoughts and I’d love to hear if this episode resonated with you, and what your big takeaway was.
