“The only constant in life is change” – Heraclitus

“Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change.” – Mary Shelley

We’ve all experienced change, in a variety of ways and to a variety of outcomes. Change can be good, terrifying, awful, life-changing, or all of those at once. What happens when we not only embrace change, but become agents of change – for our careers, our personal lives, and the world around us? Hilary shares her journey through career milestones (including landing her dream job), springboards that changed her personal life, and the continued decisions she makes daily to change the world around her, as well as methods she’s found to become an agent of change at each point along the way. Change doesn’t have to be scary – we can embrace it and use it to benefit ourselves, our careers, and the world!

Key takeaways

  • Change can be scary but we can embrace it and benefit from it personally, professionally, and we can help the world as well!
  • Big life-changing events and small changes you make every day can both have lasting effects – it doesn’t have to be dramatic to be effective.
