Jane's miserable. She's going nowhere in the career she fell into (and suffering from major job-hate fatigue). But what do you do when you can't get out until you've learned how to do something else, and you can't stand another day where you are?
Ted has something every career changer wants: clarity. But is it the right kind? How do you make progress toward work you love when all you're certain of is what you want to leave behind?
Robbie knows what he wants to do next in his career. But there's one problem: he's never done it before, and he doesn't have the time or money to build up experience before he makes his leap.

David can't bring himself to imagine waking up in a year, still doing what he's doing now. But the thought of making a shift is almost as scary. When the task ahead of you feels too big to tackle, how do you get past the paralysis and start making progress?

Daniel has a successful career that he's worked hard to build, and importantly, he's financially comfortable. He wants to do something he's passionate about, but knows he won't be able to match what he's currently making for a long time, if at all. Is it really possible to do what you love and still maintain the lifestyle you want, or will 'reality' always hold you back?
