Karen Rands, the Compassionate Capitalist will interview two leading experts in the field of helping successful people make career transitions that move them into fields and roles they can love. Whether you or someone you know has had to make a career change out of desire for something different or were forced to make a change as a result of a right-sizing or closing of a company, you will benefit from listening to the insights offered from these two expert guests. A core topic we will cover is when does it make sense to stop being an employee and to start being a boss.
