You can advance your career or start your own business with these 5 tips.
When it comes to your career, you have to be so intentional about it. You may feel as if you know where you want to get to at work, but you don’t really know how you’re going to do it.
A lot of the time, you don’t need to focus on the how or why. As long as you know what you’re working for, over time you’ll figure it out. But at the same time, it helps to have some kind of loose idea of what you can do.
It’s always fun to focus on what you can do to advance your career and get to where you want to be. And the journey is an exciting one.
You really don’t have to focus on overthinking it or worrying. Instead, you will find that these five ideas can help you move your career upward.
1. Build A Brand For Yourself
For starters, you need to think about creating a bit of a personal brand for yourself. You may find that if you want to be known for a certain thing or to become an expert on a certain thing, you need to work on your online presence.
Coming up with a brand and sort of packaging yourself in this way can make you stand out as an expert in your field.
By showing client reviews and examples of your work you stand out as an expert in your niche.Coming up with a brand and sort of packaging yourself in this way can make you stand out as an expert in your field. #branding Click To Tweet
2. Increase Your Skills to Advance Your Career
Then, you might want to take a look at how you can grow your skills and knowledge base. If you want to advance in your field, then furthering your qualifications could really work.
So look into an online analytics degree or virtual communications course or whatever you need. It’ll help you to progress.
Get A Mentor To Move Your Career Up
It could also help you to get a mentor too. It could be great to have someone coaching you and encouraging you.
So reach out to someone in your field that you admire and see if they will mentor you.
I’d had several mentors along the way here at Inspire To Thrive like:
to name a few.
I’ve had one coach me and others help me with a phone call, video chat, or email with questions along the way. Oftentimes, I’m surprised how willing some are to help out in this crowded niche.
But if you are looking to advance your career finding some to help you is key today!I'd had several mentors along the way here at Inspire To Thrive like: Ryan Biddulph, Donna Merrill, Ileane Smith, Neil Patel and Neal Schaeffer to name a few. #mentors Click To Tweet
4. Start A Side Thing to Advance Your Career
It might also be a great idea for you to think about starting a bit of a side thing as well.
Having something else to work on can often feed into your career and help you to showcase your expertise and add another string to your bow.
Not only that but you will learn so much as you continue to grow in your field (or by starting in a new field).
5. Be More Intentional About It
Finally, you’re going to want to make sure that you are just that bit more intentional about it. When you want to grow and advance, it has to be a conscious thing.
So it will help you to set intentions and work on what you can to grow and move forward each day or each week.
When it’s at the front of your mind and you’re being proactive and taking action, it’ll help you to feel like you’re moving forward.So it will help you to set intentions and work on what you can to grow and move forward each day or each week. #careers Click To Tweet

Intention makes all the difference in the world Lisa. Few bloggers or employees act with intention. Those who do seem to distance themselves from less mindful folks, who seem to scramble ahead like mad. Big time mental effort though for folks who needed to train themselves out of having addled minds….like me, LOL. Go within and the without aka outside world, becomes much easier to live in, and to succeed in.
Hi Ryan, Yes, I would agree with you on intentions. Not only intentions but the actions that follow them! I like that, go within and without the outside world. Something we could all learn from today Ryan. Thank you and have a great day in paradise!
Hi Lisa thanks for the mention. I totally agree about finding a mentor to follow. They can help steer you in the right direction as you move along in your journey. When I got started online, I was fortunate enough to find Lisa Irby from 2createawebsite. She provided tons of guidance for me in terms of SEO and getting started with YouTube.
Hi Ileane, you are very welcome. I’ve always appreciated your input over the years. I didn’t realize she got you into YouTube. I think everyone needs at least one mentor along the way in their journey. Thanks for coming by today Ileane and enjoy the rest of your weekend 🙂
