In this episode, I talk to Tom Youngs who made the big leap from successfully starting a career in dentistry in a well-respected private practice in the UK, to jumping into entrepreneurship in tech startups.

I met Tom over five years ago – a well-respected coach I had hired suggested he meet me and it was at the start of his career change journey. Five years later, after a few pivots,I noticed how happy he was from a LinkedIn post celebrating working with his team in the tech startup world. So I wanted to find out more about how his career change unfolded.

This episode is particularly relevant for people who feel they have large sunk costs from being in a career for years or spending many years, and a lot of money, training in a profession. It’s also for those whose families are in the same profession as them. Tom ticks all these boxes and came out successfully in a new career he loves.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The moment that hit Tom he was not in the right career for him after years of being focused and dedicated to achieving that goal
  • Managing his career transition working in two tech startups while working at his dental practice
  • Lessons he has learnt in hindsight from making his decision to change career
  • How Tom knows this is the right career for him now
  • Having a sense of freedom and a bubble bursting connecting him to the world
  • What’s the one thing that makes Tom Youngs burn from within?
