When I Grow Up

I remember being a senior in high school, sitting down with my guidance counselor and discussing my career path. I remember what an absolute joke that conversation was. I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up and she was absolutely no help to me whatsoever. I went to college with the intention of finding a job where I could work on a computer. No seriously, that was my main stipulation.

I don’t think I have to tell you that I bounced around a bit in terms of majors and ended up with a degree in a field I have no desire to work in. I love graphic design but hooboy am I NOT cut out for that as a 40+ hour a week career.

Today, nearly seven years since I first set off for college, I think I’ve found the job I was looking for all those years ago. I am the newest member of Sway Group/Sway in Real Life. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am for this opportunity. First of all it’s just an amazing group of women, all of whom have been so kind and welcoming to me. I feel like I’ve finally found my place in this community. A place where I can thrive, be successful, and be myself

Going “back to work” after staying home for three years is a little daunting but I’ve never felt more confident in the direction I’m going. Speaking of where I’m going, I hope that I’ll see some of you at upcoming Bloggy Boot Camp stops. I’ll be attending Las Vegas (Oct) and Chicago (Nov).

I’d also like to thank all of you who put in good words for me or spoke highly of me, you’ll never know how much I appreciate it.
