Happy Wednesdayyy! A few months ago I was contacted about contributing to an ELLE piece
about how I changed career paths and went in a completely different direction. I had been in the advertising industry but after a while realized, my heart just wasn't in it and I was extremely unhappy.
I felt like the longer I stayed in advertising and committed to this path, the harder it would be to change course. I knew that there was risk in walking away from the career and industry that I went to school for and worked so hard to be in, but I also knew the risk would be greater if I settled knowing there was something else in my heart and that my passion lay elsewhere. I am not sure the timing is ever perfectly "right" for a career change, but for me the "right now" was way better then the maybe "someday." Life is just too short.
I hope that my story and journey along with the rest of these woman inspire anyone who feels like they are stuck and unhappy in their careers, and gives them hope that change IS possible and the right time is NOW to find a career that gets you excited and makes your heart soar.
I'm totally pumped and honored to have been included in this article which is now LIVE! Below is more of my full Q&A with ELLE.com!
