What do you want to know about networking? + Vegan News You Can Use (8/11/13)

August 11, 2013 Vegan News and Links

by JL Fields on August 11, 2013

It’s Sunday and that means I have some vegan news and links to share with you today! I also have some of my own news to share. Many of you have expressed an interest in how I have shifted my career to focus more on that for which I’m particularly passionate – helping people live a happy and compassionate (vegan!) life – so I wanted to tell you about a few developments:

I am beyond excited about these new collaborations and partnerships! These opportunities arose, in part, because I dedicated time to continued learning – specifically becoming a vegan lifestyle coach and taking public cooking classes – and because of networking.

Last year, in response to your inquires about how to make a career shift such as this, I began writing about my professional transition. My first piece was on BlogHer.com: “How I Retired Before I Retired” then I started a “professionalize your passion” series on both BlogHer and here: “Professionalize Your Passion Series: Build a Budget.” The second in this series will focus on networking. I will discuss how networking led to most of the work that I am doing today (even my nonprofit and education consulting!) and I will answer your questions about networking. So, here’s your opportunity to ask: What are your questions about networking? Let me know in the comments.

And now…
