You CAN pivot!

As someone who went through 3 (well really 3.5 pivots) I cannot agree more :) I truly believe in the "where there is a will, there is a way" and I know some people take offense with this statement because it highlights some privileges. However I respectfully disagree, in my case I receive zero favorable treatment and worked my butt off non-stop (and many times I was unpaid and Lord I wish I was sitting on a trust fund), to get what I wanted. And that comes from someone who is an immigrant ie. does not have preferential treatment when it comes to applying to job if anything it is used against me (if I need sponsorship), without a family here and having to provide to one back home. SO whenever I hear someone talking about pivoting but not doing anything about it, I cringe and lose patience.

@iynna THANK YOU for posting this! I, too, have pivoted a few times in my career. Sure, there will be roadblocks, but it's not impossible. It's a CHOICE!I appreciate you shedding more light on this so more women can get into jobs they actually enjoy!

Thanks for this reassurance to be honest; I often feel like this as I delve into testing out the consultant idea.
