23: An unexpected career switch
Show Notes

When Julia Abrantes moved from NYC to Atlanta, she assumed she’d have no problem finding another job as a legal secretary with her 30 years experience. To her surprise, she had a hard time landing a job in her new city and ultimately, she had to make an unexpected career switch in her 50s. Julia shares how she eventually became a licensed insurance agent, a new career she was willing to try for six months. Today, Julia helps State Farm clients with their home, auto, and renters insurance needs—in English and Spanish—and truly enjoys it.
