Remembering Barbara Walters’s Bold Career Moves

Jan 05, 2023

Learning of Barbara Walters’s passing on New Year’s Eve was difficult. I never met her, but I felt like I knew her from watching her on television all these years. 


There is something about her career that has always fascinated me. She wasn’t just a trailblazer. She didn’t simply shatter the glass ceiling. She was more than a leader in her field.


She was Barbara Walters.


As I prepared to release this week’s podcast about 5 Mid-Career Considerations to Help With Your Career Clarity, I revised the episode to include some stories and facts about Barbara’s career that I find truly inspiring.


For example:

  • If you have to deal with a difficult colleague who doesn’t respect you, watch how Barbara navigated her tumultuous working relationship with Harry Reasoner.
  • Pay attention to how Barbara prepares for an interview. Imagine doing that for your next job interview.
  • Do you want to create a new chapter in your career? Look no further than what Barbara did with The View.


If 2023 is your year to make a job or career change, I invite you to take a few moments and listen to this week’s episode – 5 Mid-Career Considerations to Help With Your Career Clarity.


And as a New Year’s gift to you, I’ve created a free five-question quiz to help you with these five considerations. Click here to download that quiz.


Whatever is in store for you in 2023, I’m here to help and support you along your career journey. As you settle into 2023, remember that you deserve to be happy in your career and have fun doing it.
