From The Entrepreneurship Interview Series

There is a very interesting dynamic in deciding between a career path and business ownership, which I discuss in detail with Alexandra Levit, Wall Street Journal and Metro US career/workplace columnist.  Alexandra is also the author of several books, including the bestselling They Don’t Teach Corporate in College, MillennialTweet and her newest book, New Job, New You: A Guide to Reinventing Yourself in a Bright New Career.  

Alexandra is also a member of the Business Roundtable’s Springboard Project, which is advising the Obama administration on current workplace issues. Together, we talk about a variety of topics including:

  -What expectations you may not want to have about your job;

  -Why starting a business may not be an answer to your career woes;

  -Why you might want to consider a career change;

  -How you can go about finding the best new career for you;

  -What’s the biggest mistake job seekers make when applying for a new job;

  -How you can make the transition from business owner back to employee;

  -And more
