Wow it’s been over a year since I last posted. Life has a funny way of getting in the way of life and the things we love to do.
My last post was July 2015. In the months well year plus since then my father passed away while I was on vacation with my family in Orlando at Disney. We sorted and doled out my father’s things. We watched the banks, yes plural fight over the house. We bought a car and well lived life.
School continued and I started working Lyft and Jamberry full-time doing well at both. Then I got a job offer out of the blue after doing some deliveries. I stepped back into the business world and realized that I really missed it and I am really good at it. Oh and yeah I changed my major.
See part of my life goal is to follow my arrow, find my bliss and do good things. I was finding that my arrow was no longer pointing to teaching and there was no bliss when I thought about standing in the classroom teaching. My arrow was pointing elsewhere and I was too stubborn to follow it. But isn’t that how we find ourselves in jobs we only do for the paycheck, in relationships that we stay in because we are afraid to walk away and find better? So I took my own advice and decided to change my degree to Business Management.
I am a problem solver, a fixer a let’s make it better. In the business world I can do that at my own pace, in my own space and heck I can even create my own rules. I thrive working out the next problem, helping someone get what they are looking for and being a catalyst. Working with others that feel the same way.
Don’t get me wrong I still love to teach but I want to do it in a different setting. I want to teach others how to be better. It’s not about ABC’s and 123’s it’s about thriving and helping a business thrive and seeing the people who you work with thrive.
I’ve always wanted to own my own business. I can do that with Jamberry and to an extent with Lyft. BUT and it’s a big one. I want to create, build from the ground up my own business, not sure what that is yet but I know that I will have more open doors and more opportunities to hone my craft with a business degree, and well I’ve learned I love kids but not enough to spend 8+ hours a day with them.
I may be taking a small step back, but I know that I am following my arrow, that will lead to my bliss that will help me do good things.
