The PeopleAlchemist Edit: change & transformation, business & lifestyle experimentation for TheWomanAlchemist – What does it mean to be in charge of your career?



What does being in charge of your career means?

In the “old days”, people depended on their boss for a promotion.
Now you can own your career. If you want to progress, you can build an evidence-based portfolio to show how you can add value to the business you are working in. You can create your luck.

Research shows that successful people often do the necessary groundwork to make the right conditions for their success. They spot opportunities and, even better, create them.

And that often means having fewer expectations and being more active. Instead of pointing the finger at everything wrong and/or waiting for someone to give you what you need, get creative and productive.

Build relationships, and find advocates. Take new projects on. With the right attitude, most roadblocks can be redirected.
The most important thing is that “change starts from within”. Be clear about what you want and why. Then plan your next steps. Finally, implement the plan.

I know it sounds like common sense, but you’d be surprised how common sense is not that common.




If you need any help, check out my book “90 Days To Reboot Your Career: How To Reinvent Yourself, Your Career and Your Life“. I wrote it as a practical and straightforward, direct-action personal improvement guide written with the sole objective of helping every woman who reads to achieve what she desires in her career.


90 Days to reboot your career

Your pocket coach so to speak to help you, nudge you, and sometimes shout at you if you give up or make up too many excuses.

The book is laid out as a 90 days journey:

  • 30 days to reboot your mindset
  • 30 days to reboot your brand
  • 30 days to take action and reboot your life.

Success is a habit. And Self-discipline is continuously choosing to think, say and do what is in your best interest.

In the next 90 days, you CAN build habits that run you, step by step, day after day and achieve EXACTLY what you want.

Smash that ceiling, the ceiling in your head, the only thing that is truly stopping you from achieving what you want in business and life.
