Euphoric the Podcast

Aug 2, 2023

You can start your career over. The hardest part? Giving yourself permission to do so.

So many people have this idea that they’re in too deep. They’ve invested too much time or schooling into something, and that it’s too late to start over. In this episode, Karolina talks with Chelsea Turgeon about how she pivoted from one of those professions most never pivot from – (a doctor!) – to start her own 6-figure business that allows her to travel the world.

Chelsea has been on the show before, but Karolina is bringing her back to share her personal journey. Even more fun is this episode was recorded in Norway where they’re traveling together! Chelsea talks about the sunk-cost fallacy, the future of the job industry, and the power of salvaging - not the past, but the future. 

Beautiful, there are so many “shoulds” in this life. You should have a white picket fence. You should have alcohol, because that’s what normal adults drink. You should be employed by a “stable” employer. But what’s more secure than owning your own financial independence?


  • The sunk-cost fallacy, in which people are reluctant to abandon their careers because they’ve invested too much – and Chelsea’s better way to approach it
  • Chelsea’s inspirational story: leaving her career as a doctor, buying a one-way ticket to South Korea, and launching her coaching business helping people find their dream careers
  • Ways in which we normalize misery, and having the intentionality to step outside of that and ask some bigger questions like: why are we doing this?
  • How to use what you’re currently doing to leverage time (and money) to start your new passions, plus the fallacy of “job security”
  • The future of jobs, and how many won’t be recognizable to us today due to technology – and the importance of updating our thinking about what’s possible
  • Tips and tricks to cover the cost of travel, from renting your house to staying in a place longer than a few days
