Episode #33 - Client Spotlight: How Tayla Mahmud Discovered Herself and Found Her Aligned Career

I always say that navigating your career path in midlife requires mastery of both an inner (mindset and self-discovery) game and an outer (tactics and strategy) game. This concept is the foundation of the Career Rebel Academy and what helps my clients achieve the success and results they desire. Today on the podcast, CRA student Tayla Mahmud shares where she was before joining CRA, why she joined six months pregnant, and how being in the program has helped get her the clarity she needs to design a career and life she loves.

In this episode of the Midlife Career Rebel Podcast, you'll discover…

  • Tayla's experience in the Career Rebel Academy
  • Where she was before she started the program
  • How the mindset and discovery work gave her the clarity she needed
  • The importance of community and how it helped her
  • Why coaching and not trying to go it alone is so important
  • How she was able to choose the right career path/job
  • Advice for those considering the Career Rebel Academy
