7 Signs That You Probably Need to Pivot Your Career Path

In case you didn’t notice, I have recently rebranded my blog and changed the logo. It’s been a while since I thought that the previous slogan “beau-beauty-travel” is no longer relevant since I start writing more and more posts with the theme outside those topics. Now, I’ve started fresh with a new tagline: your one-stop traveltainment.

Rebranding my blog gave me the idea to write about pivoting careers in the new post. Not only that the decision to repurpose my blog is pretty much similar to the change of career path. Both are hard, but needed at some point.

You probably noticed that I like to write about various topics about working from home or blogging. That’s what I want to incorporate in the new The BeauTraveler.

I no longer just want to share my dating failure or some travel mishaps with you, but I also want to bring values for those who probably are on the shoes that I was in. And that’s when the idea of pivoting for this blog came up.

Why I Freelance: Multiple Streams of Income Help Me Manage My Finances Better

I’ve spent 20 years being told that I’m just bad at financial management. I mean, my mom made it very clear so and I gotta admit that I was terrible when it comes to my money.

I had no clue how it was possible for some people to be able to save their money, because whenever I got my paycheck, my first instinct would be to spend it and I barely had nothing left by the end of the month. That was the story of my life until some time last year.

Imagine, it took me 30 years to have this awareness to save. Before then, it’s like even though I wanted to save, I often had no money to save then. The salary that I earned was like Bruno Mars’s song: easy come, easy go.

Starting last year, I’ve finally found managing my finances a bit easier, and I got better at it. So, whether you’re just starting as a freelancer, or you just wonder how we could save money from freelancing jobs… I hope my post today will help you find the answer!
