I recently attended a careers' evening at my daughter's secondary school, and I was blown away by the number of different career options that were available to her. There were stalls from companies in all sorts of walks of life, and so much choice.
It made me think back to the careers' guidance I'd had at school which was woefully lacking, and how I'd had no idea what direction to take my life in. I ended up going to university and coming out with a foreign language degree before eventually training as a teacher.
It wasn't until much later in life that I realised my passion for interior design, and then later still that I was bold enough to make a change.
In fact, I was in my mid thirties by the time I came to study interior design, rejecting every career move I had made before then!
But you see, the funny thing is, I wasn't the oldest on my course. And for the students that come to study with us in our school, The Home Design School, most people are in their forties, fifties and beyond.
Some people question whether it really is possible to change career later in life, and I'm here to tell you that it is indeed possible, and I'm here to support you through the process. You see, it's not age that's the barrier, it's the mindset.
Once you get your head around the fact that you're never too old to change your path in life, a whole new wonderful world can open up to you.
And not only that, once you've finished your studies, you can then join The Interior Designer's Hub to get help and support in how to set up and run your own business.
