Things had to change!
Naturally I started by making changes at work. I negotiated for more flexibility: I reset my hours to start earlier so I could be home to put my daughter to bed (and save on child care!). I started working remotely twice a week. I was promoted while on maternity leave and negotiated a higher salary upon my return. I even kept going to my mom and me class at lunch one day a week! But it still wasn't right for me.
As I looked back over the previous 10 years, it had been a whirlwind and supposedly everything I had ever wanted when I started my career. Yet I had never stopped to actually think: Was this the right job? Was it the right company? Most importantly, was I using my talent and strengths?
I started investing in myself (I hired a coach!), discovering my strengths, determining what environment best suited my personality, and figuring how I could best use my talents to make work, work for me! Now I find myself doing something I love… helping others discover their own strengths, work personality, and talents to land a career where you will thrive, succeed, grow and actually enjoy!
Today, I work with new moms (and dads!) in career transitions to discover what inspires and drives them towards their best career fit. I help them navigate their careers and new parenthood to go after their career and family goals with actionable steps to make it happen!
