    Default Ne dom type 7's: Have you ever had problems sticking to one career?

    I have an extremely difficult time sticking to one career. I've been a sales manager, worked in customer service, been a secretary, worked in the restaurant industry, and other things and I'm only 23. I can't stick to one thing to save my life: it's like I always have to be doing something new. Is anyone else this way?

    Yes totally. I think the trick is to find a career that evolves with you.

    sure...just pick something that has room to grow.
    or room to branch out and expand...several different facets to it....different hats for you to wear etc.

    personal example...i'm a photographer

    i do portraits...but i could do weddings, architecture or landscape photography etc etc
    i shoot the session...but i also edit it creatively and sell it and do marketing and style the shoot etc

    currently working out of my house but...i could have a super awesome studio...or i could decide to travel and do destination weddings

    i work with all sorts of people...i hold babies and soothe them and it's all quiet and sweet and emotional with the mother...super girlie bonding moment
    or i'm working with lil kids running around the park playing peek a boo
    or working with seniors blaring beastie boys from my iphone while he dances in the alley
    or i'm making pregnant mama feel beautiful
    or making a couple laugh...etc

    and then i get to play artist when i edit them
    then i get to play designer when i sell to them

    and advertising person when thinking up marketing strategies.

    and beyond all of that...i am always learning...so my "style" can evolve too

    Got it. Pick a very open-ended career. Good idea.
