Changing careers after EB green card. Affect on citizenship?

Asked over 1 year ago - Herndon, VA

Its been 12 months since my wife and I got our Green Cards through my employer. I have been working with the same employer since 2008. However, I want to change career and purse a business opportunity that is completely unrelated to what I have been doing for my employer. Will it cause any issues at the time of naturalization or green card renewal if I do so? Thanks. DM
