Or maybe you've exceeded all of the goals you set for your current career and you're ready for a new challenge. How do you envision possible new professional selves, explore your options, and embark on a dramatic career makeover when you have a mortgage to pay, kids to support, college and retirement funds to feed--and a full life and full-time job?
