If you’ve hit a point where you’re asking yourself, “what’s next for me? Should I keep this career? Should I dump this side hustle? And where should my efforts go when my kids are getting older?” you’re definitely not alone.

And this is the podcast episode that may help you find the right path — and just as importantly, the person or people who can help you get there.

"What's next for me?" How to know whether you need a life coach, a career coach or just a friend: Spawned Podcast with Katherine Goldstein

On this week’s episode of Spawned, I am so happy to be joined (again!) by award-winning journalist and The Double Shift founder Katherine Goldstein, about her recent HuffPost article, There’s a Life Coach for Everything These Days.

She describes how her own career path crossroads over the pandemic led her to investigate the changes other women are making right now, and how life coaches, career coaches and even therapy or a community of friends can help right now. Maybe it will even help you.
