I've been with my current organization for 10 years.
In that time my role has grown and shifted numerous times. Overall, I'm pretty happy with everything--the people, organization, mission, benefits, work/life balance, etc. are all great. I'm not always in love with all of the actual, day-to-day work, but who is? I was recently approached by my boss about expanding my role again, which would move me into a more strategic and "big picture" role. I would have some input in crafting the new position and likely have the ability to hire people to handle more of the day-to-day tasks. Basically: I'll move into the leadership team.
All sounds great, right? The problem is I was starting to make plans with my husband to make some big life changes--namely moving out of state, which I'm 99% sure would mean I could no longer work for this organization, and definitely not in this new capacity. (I should mention that the out of state move is strictly personal--it would just be us going somewhere we've always loved/wanted to live.) We're also thinking about starting our own business, though I assume one of us would need to work for a few years until that was providing real income.
There are a number of things that are so appealing about this new opportunity. However, I'm really trying to fight my feelings of imposter syndrome, and struggling to sort out whether I should even consider it since it's essentially the opposite of what I was starting to sketch out personally. I talked to my husband and he's 100% supportive of whatever I want to do. He also pointed out that I could always try it and move on if I didn't like it.
I 100% understand that (for SO many reasons) this sounds like a ridiculous problem to have. But--does anyone have any advice? I don't have a mentor I can lean on, and friends that I normally go to for advice either aren't great for career advice or are people I work with/are associated with people I work with.
