Life is all about new beginnings and new directions, so if you’ve been thinking about transitioning out of medicine into a second career before you retire, there may be no better time than the present to do so.

Everyone has hidden talents and a secret career that they’ve always dreamed about. There’s so much choice, that the paths to finding your bliss are virtually limitless.

Looking to channel your inner Iron Chef? Then why not launch that food truck you’ve been putting together in your head these last few years? Tricked-out trucks are all the rage and regularly attract lineups of famished foodies eager to sample exotic fare.

What excites you now? Is it time to follow a new passion?

Moroccan tacos? Vietnamese noodle soups? Israeli/Mediterranean tapas? The menu is limited only by your imagination. Buy a truck, finalize a culinary theme, think up a clever name and you’re good to go.

You could start a catering company or launch a baked-goods business.

Fancy yourself the host with the most? Then why not open a bed and breakfast in the country (or city, for that matter)? We know of a couple of retired physicians who have done just that. Opportunities abound online — everything from freelance writing and craft-related businesses to consulting.

Now may be the ideal time to turn your untapped skills into gold and pursue a second career that will reignite your passion.

Seize the day. Your future starts now.
