Working identity metamorphosis is often a complex blend of excitement and fear. It undoubtedly benefits most from persistence and the acquisition of a support system. It cannot be rushed if you want the best outcome. I have found a single starting point that I would offer here as a key piece of free advice. That would be to read the book Working Identity.
Published by Harvard Business Press, this book has become a bible for me and my clients. It is the best resource you can if you are changing out an old career for a new one.
Get the book. Read it. Review it often to inform your transition.
