Have you been daydreaming about a career change lately? Whether you're only flirting with the idea of switching it up or sending out applications, anyone considering a career change could use a community of people who know the ins and outs of making this big transition.
That's why Lisa Lewis started her FGB Group, Career Changers. When you join, you gain access to a community of people offering personalized advice on all of your questions and providing helpful resources to make your journey a little bit easier.

Who are you?
I'm Lisa Lewis — an obsessive learner, recovering perfectionist, passionate traveler, INTJ, English breakfast tea lover, perpetual dreamer, Coloradan, a cappella singer, overachiever, raw cookie dough enthusiast and definite Ravenclaw. Oh, and I'm a career change coach who's obsessed with helping people find more happiness in their professional lives.
What inspired you to start this group?
I was inspired to start this group because I think that tons of people think about career changes each day, but have no idea where to turn to get support. You wonder: "Should I change jobs, or should I just suck it up?" Or: "Do I have too high of expectations of my work?" Or, the worst: "Is this as good as it gets?" People deserve a place to go to help them unpack those kinds of questions — and get support in exploring a shift.
Who is this group best suited for?
This group is best suited for people of all ages and backgrounds who are interested in potentially switching careers. You can be anywhere from "curious" to "completely committed" to a career change and find helpful resources here.
