Three steps to reinventing your career—even if you’re not sure what you want to do next

Founder

In 2012, I was working in the Park Avenue offices of BlackRock, investing in hedge funds. I managed a great, diverse team of people, and every day I got to chat with the most successful investors in the world.

But I felt an itch. I wanted to learn about a new industry. I wanted to be more creative. I wanted to tweet using my real name, and break out of my rotation of the same five Brooks Brothers slim-fit shirts.

Here’s where you might expect to hear about my big epiphany—how I decided to reinvent my career and strategically worked my way to a new job in an entirely different field. These kinds of narratives make the process of disrupting your life sound enticingly simple. But my own journey to my current job writing and collaborating with Quartz as their entrepreneur in residence was a windy, indecisive one—spanning four years and a lot of uncertainty.
