The important question – why do you want to start over?

Let’s start with the most important question here, why do you want to start over? To clarify, which aspect of your life do you aim to change? Why is this question so important you might wonder?

So let us go through these three most common reasons why people might choose to start over, and some destinations that might help you do just that.

Moving for a better career opportunity

So many people choose to start over looking for a better career. After all, isn’t a young person moving to L.A. to make it big in Hollywood a famous trope already? Reality is, many people are just tired with their job and in certain communities, better job options may not be available. Even worse, you might be eager to work, but just can’t seem to land that dream job you desire. Luckily, we live in the age of the internet and many new jobs appear that can be found that will enable you to make a living online.

Moving for personal growth, fun or a change in scenery

The reason one may choose to start over does not necessarily have to be to find a new career. Maybe you are stuck in the same old place and want to see more of the world. Maybe the place you are coming from carries sadness or even grief and you need somewhere to reinvent yourself.  After all, every life develops under different conditions and to grow, we must sometimes leave behind things that weigh us down. To achieve this, one should consider if they should start over somewhere fresh. Here are some places in the US that might help you with that:

Carlsbad, California

A mix of beautiful beaches and art, Carlsbad is certainly one of the best places to start over. Not to mention it’s warm climate. Just imagine taking a long walk down the beach with sunshine in your hair or taking a dip in the Pacific. This place is sure to wash away any bad memories that motivated you to start over. It is also close to San Diego if you ever long for that big city experience.

Grand Rapids, Michigan

Affordable, inclusive, tight-knit. These all describe Grand Rapids, one of the best places to live in the US due to its mix of affordability and low unemployment rate. The city is also very welcoming to all kinds of people and is widely known for its LGBTQ friendliness. Add to that a strong sense of community and a growing youth population and what do you get? A place where many people would want to start over.

The city’s lively music scene, a mix of traditional and Mexican cultures and famous Tex-Mex cuisine is sure to charm you. While not lacking in fun, Austin also offers great business opportunities as well. Especially for young IT professionals looking to start over somewhere with an interesting cultural mix.
