For 20 years, I have worked in the corporate sector and I have been extremely successful. For the last 10 years, I have day dreamed about creating a side hustle that will allow me to escape the land of cubicles. I’ve spent time evaluating my strengths, what I like to do, and how I might be able to utilize my expertise outside of the corporate grind. I also had to take a serious look at the areas of my life that have been neglected. I will spare you all the details and time I’ve spent on trying to figure this out. But, in a summary, this is what I discovered:
I am thankful for everything corporate life has taught and given me. I am truly blessed for what I have gained. As a single mother, my hard work and dedication has paid off with a six-figure income, allowed me to invest in real estate and allowed me to take care of my family.
Enduring the 24/7 corporate pace and grind has been like running a marathon every week for 20 years. And now, I’m crawling across the finish line.
Through my soul searching, I am reminded that I am energized by helping others. May it be volunteering with the underserved or by helping people grow and develop professionally.
My passion to help others has served to create and sustain a successful career. However, I have failed at take care of myself. At 48, I missed the signs of a heart attack and my personal well-being has suffered. Wow, never easy to admit to failures.
So, this is where the new journey begins. I have started a podcast that is about business, well-being and everything in between.
This will allow me to pay it forward and share my business experiences and hopefully help others in their career. I will share professional tips and tools; while bringing together other leaders and entrepreneurs from a wide range of businesses and disciplines to also share their best practices.
At the same time, I will be learning about balance and well-being and spending more time doing what I love.
I hope you will join me on this new journey and tune for new episodes of Bizwell.
