Should you ever go backwards in your career? If you’re a long term listener of the podcast, you know I think the answer is absolutely yes. Sometimes the quickest way to get out of a problem and get oriented on a solution is to go back up.

But it’s not for the faint of heart. You have to have some faith and confidence in yourself and the path you choose.
