Professional development is an essential part of your overall personal development plan. Regardless of how you earn a living, having a plan for staying up-to-date on current trends in your chosen field and for developing new skills is a must.

Once again this crazy pandemic has shown us that we cannot take anything for granted. Not our health, our finances or our way of living. The best way to prevent us from getting overwhelmed by situations like this is to be prepared. Be prepared for anything to happen and work on the necessary skills to be able to pivot at a moments notice.

Episode 13 of Kickass Every Day focuses on you taking control of your professional development and the important aspects of a solid professional development plan.

“It is not what happens to you that determines how far you go in life; it is what you do with what happens to you.”
