Replanning (újraterveztem.hu), honest talks with brave career changers – Lessons learned
by Marton Turi

Ujraterveztem.hu is a blog with photo interviews. We aim to introduce people with courage, who redesigned their lives, left their previous careers and jobs and jumped into the unknown in order to realize their dream and can actually make a living from it.

Our mission is to inspire other people who are looking for new paths, facilitate an honest discussion on the upcoming challenges of a career change and show that it can make sense to start realizing your dream.

During this short talk Marton reveals some lessons learned during the interviews with career changers.
