Chanèle McFarlane: Full-Time Entrepreneur (Writer, Speaker, PR Specialist & More)!!

Ever thought of becoming a full-time entrepreneur? I first met Chanèle at a networking event she hosted and I immediately loved her personality and hard work.

Late last year, while scrolling through my Instagram feed, she announced that she had decided to become a full-time entrepreneur.

I’ve had readers request that I feature someone who’s turned an idea to business. So one of my goals is to have some full-time entrepreneurs share their stories for workers who want to go that route.

Take A New Career Path In 2018

People usually think of the new year new me saying as changing things about their physical selves or lifestyle. For example, the most common one to change is diet or fitness. But, at the same time these are both the hardest things to change.

So why not make your new year’s resolution one that is easy to stick to, and actually will dramatically change your life. A career change. There’s no point being stuck in a career you’re not happy in, so you might as well make arrangements to find a new career.

Are You Ready To Break Out On Your Own?

One of the most amazing things about the modern world is just how much control it offers so many people over their own lives and careers. There was a time when your only option was to work for a company and slowly work your way up the ranks. However, there are now so many other options available to people that it can be pretty overwhelming!

The most significant things about many of these options is that they give you the chance to break out on your own and no longer have to rely on other people for your career. However, as exciting as that might sound, it can be a real challenge to do this.

The Changing Job Market: What Your Employer Thinks About You

Over time, one thing that has been understood about the job market and workplace, in general, is that many people are in fear. Fear of losing their jobs. The fear of not being good enough for a job or being incompetent.

There is also the fear of failing to meet deadlines. Fear of asking for a raise or a promotion. And if you’re an employee, sometimes the fear of what your employer thinks about you.

The job market is fierce and in this day and age, competition has never been greater. Businesses are evolving due to the changes in multiple technologies and the huge internet penetration.

The Changing Job Market: An Immigrant’s Story

While contemplating becoming an immigrant in Canada, I decided to move for several reasons and if I’m being honest, I had to consider whether my career will still be in line. 

Thankfully, I was already certain that I didn’t want to go ahead with practicing law so that was out of the way – no need for re-evaluation, articulation, re-examination, re-qualification and believe me, I was excited.

But choosing a career also bothered me a great deal. I didn’t want to start one that I will detest, another life where I feel trapped in a career that I didn’t enjoy and I knew would dwindle in the long run. One where I felt like I wasn’t making use of my passions and talents.

Creative Ways To Freelance

It’s hard to find a career that can make you completely happy in this day and age. It’s almost impossible to be 100 percent happy in a job because human wants are insatiable. One minute you are completely sold on your job and are ever willing to share this with friends and family.

In fact, you want them to work with you on some aspects!

And the next minute, you are battling with a bit of stress and could get frustrated, intimidated or lose focus. That’s what life and career bring to the table. I even ranted on the love-hate relationship of a 9-5.

The classic 9 to 5 job spent sitting behind a desk in a drab office can be mentally draining for some people and I totally respect that because I’ve seen both sides of the coin. It’s probably not the kind of job you imagined if that is the role in which you find yourself.

Employee's Workplace, New Worker

Do You Feel Safe In Your Job?

This might seem like such a broad question to ask, but do you truly feel safe in your job? Not safe as in your physical safety, but in other aspects as well. Do you feel mentally stable? Is your job secure? Do you feel happy coming into work each day?

Your mental stability is so important and your job or workplace plays an active role in how you’ll generally react. If you’re feeling unsafe, it should naturally result to stress and could affect how you treat loved ones or people around you.
