I don’t think I could have picked a better time to start a blog, pursue my project, and make a life changing decision. Today is International Women’s Day and truly a good time to be alive. Before I had my daughter, I never really paid attention to true meaning of the day or its actual purpose- today is about empowerment, solidarity, and the hustle. Today is also the day I turned in my resignation from my current employer to take on a new challenge.
Going back to being a working woman and a new mother, I embrace the hustle, but now for a different purpose. The hustle is for my daughter, I am empowered to make decisions for our life to give her purpose and means to be a strong, independent woman for the future and make her proud.
Pretty soon I am going to be switching jobs again and unlike common thought, it is not for a higher paycheck or because I don’t like what I do. It is because I am pursuing an opportunity that will allow me to grow professionally and give me ground to do what I do best… hunt. Managing people and a P&L for the last five years has been a great and much welcomed experience as it is something that every person in management needs to have to truly understand the bottom line and the reason why we work towards what we do and why business decisions are made how they are.
But now it is time to go back to what got me started. I want to use what I have learned in the last five years, armed with the core understanding of what my industry is, to sell and develop large scale accounts. This is my next step and a venture that I truly embrace.
So I leave you with this nugget of information, do what you love and try everything once.
