But, first, enter to win a copy below.

What if you want or need to change your career? - Here are 5 Steps to Restart Your Career By Fred Stuvek, Jr.
  1. Identify – Look at those areas that match up best with your interests, skillset, and qualifications that would be something you would look forward to doing. Assess what positions you would be most interested in; what skills you currently have and don’t have, and what you need to do to become a qualified, viable candidate.

  2. Plan – Put together a list of all the things you need to do. Develop goals, in order of priority, along with objectives and timelines. Be realistic and practical in terms of what you need to do and how long it will take to do it. Anticipate the barriers or roadblocks that could sidetrack you and come up with strategies or coping mechanisms to deal with them. Financial planning is an integral part of this process.

  3. Act – Nothing changes if nothing changes, and nothing happens if you don’t act. While your intentions are good, this career change will only come to fruition if you act upon it. Fear destroys more dreams than failure ever has, so put aside your fears, develop your confidence, and take that first step. It may seem like a long journey, but the sooner you start, the sooner you get there. Once you have taken that first step, take another, and continue to move forward. Later you will look back, reflect on this, and be glad you took that first step.

  4. Accountability – While it is important to have a support group of family and friends, which is of incalculable value, at the end of the day you are responsible for you. Develop a routine, with good habits, and stick with it. Train and condition yourself to become more disciplined so that many of your actions are second nature. Track your progress by routinely reviewing your plan. Hold yourself accountable, and get rid of the excuses.

  5. Persevere – If you are wired for instant gratification, get rewired. This is a process that will take time and effort. Understand and accept that setbacks will occur along the way and find a way to deal with them. Review your plan, along with the objectives, and adjust as necessary.

      "The margin of error is shrinking...

      Has the new normal just f***ed up the future for young adults?

      Thanks to a global pandemic, they’re entering adulthood, their college career, or the workforce during record unemployment, a terrifying economy, and social guidelines that have all but eliminated life as we knew it.

      And what about the millions of newly unemployed workers in America? As they look for a fresh start, how will they overcome the challenges of an economy decimated by COVID-19?

      If having a strategy for the future was important before, now it's critical. The choices new grads, young adults, or the newly unemployed make and the practices they adopt right now are going to shape not only their career, but every other aspect of their life as well.

      Fred Stuvek, Jr. has some hard-earned life lessons to share with them. As a former athlete who served in the military and successfully started his own business, he has advice for those looking to thrive in this battered economy.

      In Don’t F*** This Up!, he explains how harnessing certain proven success principles will help guide those looking for a new start in a world where the margin of error is narrower than ever.

        He can explain the following in more detail:

      • Adopt high standards and become disciplined
      • Learn how to focus on goal setting from a Hall of Fame athlete turned soldier
      • Develop and improve essential relationships from someone who has built successful businesses
      • Establish a high level of personal integrity through the right actions and attitude 
      • Develop the resilience and grit to overcome adversity"
