Every once in a while, a “thing” will appear on as “completed” without ever appearing on the “list”. (Wow, that is a lot of quotes!)
So what is the “thing” that was not on my list? A career change (of sorts). Of course, no surprise that while turning 40 one thinks back on their career. The wins. The mistakes. The “would I do it the same if I could do it all over”. (Yes, I would.) However, those thoughts led to the” what’s next” thoughts. (I know, more quotes.)
I started those thoughts with what do I love about what I do? Love marketing. Love online. Love multiple channels. Wish it were more than just automotive. (Shoes would be heaven).
Then move on to what do I miss from my past roles? International. Challenge that pushes me out of my comfort zone. Anything else? Not coming to mind. That’s all the further I got and I quit thinking about it. Tabled it for six months or so.
Then, within a month the magic of LinkedIn happened. Some one reached out to me. I make a habit of always responding – never know when the paths will cross again and don’t ever want a bad taste in someone’s mouth when they see my name.
Conversation led to interview.
Interview led to offer.
And you guessed it when you saw the title, I accepted.
New chapter begins May 2. EXCITED about the FABULOUS opportunity for personal growth and challenge.
