02:16 When considering a career change passion is not everything, we need to look into four areas: what you love to do, what you are good at, what you can be paid for and what the world needs.

05:30 How changes are a driver towards personal and professional growth.

07:30 The first step when thinking about your dream career is to start looking at your long term aspiration; the vision of who you would like to become, what would you like to be, who are people around you, etc.

10:30 Often, we are held back by a lack of awareness of our capabilities and limiting beliefs.

13:15 Taking small incremental steps and getting help is crucial to overcoming setbacks and achieving your professional dreams.

14:40 Having a coach or a mentor means someone who can help you open the doors you haven’t seen before.

17:03 Why you should not be afraid to start from scratch because there is value in having a clear mind when beginning to plan a new direction in life.

19:50 The possibilities grow when you are willing to be vulnerable and take steps, even when you can’t predict the future.

24:00 How to deal with failure, disappointment, Covid and losing a job?

34:00 We all have our path, and we need to be working on that uniqueness instead of comparing ourselves to others.

40:58 Simona shares a personal story; one of the reasons why she left the environment she was working in and why she embarked on her entrepreneurial journey.
