Challenges Are Gifts

A New Chapter

Throughout the course of each of our careers, we go through different chapters of that story. Each chapter from beginning to end has us in different jobs or positions and gives us the opportunity to develop new skills and make new mistakes. Along the way we have the opportunity to learn new lessons also.

I’m turning the page to a new chapter of my career now. Leaving a position I love with a company I’ve been with for years. It’s always bittersweet moving on to that next chapter, but the way you handle it can greatly affect the outcome. Some choose to embrace the new chapter and dive in, while others tend to dwell in the past more and be more defensive about the changes in the next chapter.

I for one am excited to dive in and embrace this new opportunity with all the new challenges that come along with it. I’ll keep updating this as time goes on.

I also apologize for being AWOL for awhile, but I’ll be back more consistently again now!

Keep your eyes peeled for the next update!


The Power of Mentorship

We all have that one person in our professional lives that truly changed the way our career was headed for the better. This person, a mentor, is the most valuable resource you’ll ever have.

Whether it’s the boss that takes you under their wing and helps develop you to the next level, or the seasoned coworker that helps you to become the best version of yourself every day, we’ve all had one. This person is also the person at work you know will always be there for you when you’re in over your head, or just not understanding what is going on, they’re always there to help you through.

Finding this mentor can be an incredible tool in your career success as being taken under the wing of an experienced professional can truly impact not only what you learn, but the connections you’re able to make as you move further down the road in your career.

Your mentor may not even be at your current job, it may be somebody from a previous job, or externally someone you know within the industry that is there to help you succeed when you need a hand.

It’s Not About Ideas, It’s About Making Ideas Happen

With everyone these days worrying about coming up with “the latest thing”, ideas are a dime a dozen.  Everyone has brilliant ideas, but having an idea alone doesn’t do much.  The key step in creating something new isn’t to merely come up with the idea, but also to execute on these ideas.  Making ideas happen is what matters.

Let’s go into next week after a relaxing weekend off, focused on not the idea but the execution and see where it takes us in the next week.

Until Next Time,
