What To Do When Your Purpose or Passion Changes & How to Start


Reinventing Your Business or Career When Changing Your Purpose

What do you do if your purpose or passion changes, especially if you’re making a shift away from something you’re currently known for, or it’s closely tied to your business or career? Where do you start when you feel like you must reinvent yourself? In this episode, join us at Marketing Impact LIVE as Chalene answers these questions, shares her own story about why she made a shift away from the fitness industry, and explains how you can make a change, too.

I hear from so many of you questions not only about how to find your purpose…which by the way I recently did an episode about this on The Chalene Show – episode 300 “4 Simple Questions to Find Your Purpose”…but what to do if you have another purpose or passion you want to pursue.

Today, I want to share my story, my truth in how and why I made a switch from the fitness industry to focusing on nutrition and overall health…and how you can do this, too whatever your new passion might be.

We cover everything from how to make a shift, where to start in pursuing a new passion or showing a different side of yourself, and how you can apply this to your business. We talk about the importance of listening to your followers and beta testing, your first steps in making things happen, and how it doesn’t need to be perfect, and you don’t even have to fully understand what it is yet to start.
