S2E8 In conversation with Alvina Peat: Taking control of your career
Show Notes Chapter Markers

In this episode, Arthi has an interesting discussion with guest Alvina Peat about how one can go about taking control of ones career.

Alvina worked in mortgage finance for many years and the company underwent a re-organisation, leaving her with a decision to make: reapply for her role or take a leap of faith. Through a mindset shift, she took this juncture as an opportunity to reinvent herself in a way that she wanted to, and hence the start of her business. She didn’t have a business plan or clear goals defined, but she knew where her strengths lay and used that knowledge as the basis for starting her solopreneur journey. With support from her strong sister circle, she has been able to navigate her business to become established and known for the work she does in training and facilitation. From sharing about knowing your PROPS, to learning how to take care of business, to learning how desire, dare and deserve what you do ( you will need to listen in to learn about what these are), Alvina’s offers up a ton of practical and relatable  options to help you in your career journey.

Some wise words shared by Alvina:
-“The challenge was the opportunity”
- “Is there anything out there that is perfect?”
- “Perfectionism…can be a form of procrastination”
