This is a well-thought out story of career change at 35 years old, planned meticulously to now blossoming into a burning-from-within reality. The plan took three years for Mrugank Patel (MP) to execute fully. Managing a big transition from a six-figure salary at a bank in Australia working in IT to turning to becoming a psychotherapist took time, patience, planning and hard work, And it paid off.

Career change at 35: a three-year plan

After reading a very popular post on an online forum with the question of ‘How’s your life after quitting IT industry and what are you doing currently?’, I was inspired to contact Mrugank Patel (MP). His answer beautifully shared his career change story. And in the process, he gathered very quickly almost 70,000 views and hundreds of comments and upvotes. When I read it, I understood why.

MP spent most of his professional life in Australia and earned a six-figure salary for many years as an IT management consultant. He was fortune to work in several well-respected Fortune 500 companies in Australia.

After achieving his financial and career goals, he started asking “Will I be doing what I’m doing right now till I turn 65 (retirement age)? Will I be doing the 9 to 5 thing for another 30+ years?”

MP wanted more meaning in his life. So to find it, he studied human psychology and behaviour. And so his three-year journey of career change at 35 years old began. The plan also successfully transitioned his wife from a career in pathology to a dietician!

This video interview digs deeper to discuss how MP:

  • Left a six-figure salary with mortgages and two kids
  • Meticulously planned his and his wife’s career transition over 3 years
  • Now has time for his beautiful family, friends and a lifestyle he’s always desired
  • Found passion, purpose and balance in his life and is living by his values.
  • Is leading a happy and meaningful life earning just 10-15% of his previous salary
