I took a risk and it paid off BIG TIME
Taking risks does not come naturally to me.
I like stability and planning ahead.
I like to know what I have coming up and I am a stickler for a routine!!
However, when I took a career break from a job I loved, I really didn’t know what I was going to do next or how long of a break it will be!
Deciding to take a break didn’t come lightly…
The monetary risk was one thing, but losing that stability of feeling valued professionally and turning my back on all those years of studying was something else entirely!
I didn’t want to admit, but I was a workaholic. I loved working.
It felt rewarding to drive a multi-million £ company’s marketing strategy, and it felt empowering to have a decent marketing budget to make some noise in the industry. Including a few 6 figure product launches under my belt!
When things change for the better...
Becoming a mum for the second time and having the opportunity to do the first few years all over again was stronger than anything I had felt before. (Mind you having a premie baby, was like the universe was agreeing with my decision, but that’s a story for another time.)
So I took the biggest risk and waved goodbye to a stable salary, job security, professional empowerment and a work/life routine that I worked so hard to achieve since leaving Uni!!
I will forever be grateful for my supportive husband who has stood by my decision and has gotten me through this self-discovery and soul searching journey.
Biggest risk or greatest opportunity?
It may have been the biggest risk, but I certainly did not expect to learn so much about myself. In fact, it has been the most thrilling and empowering road I have ever been on.
And just like every road, there have been plenty of huge mountains to climb and massive boulders to move.
💥 For the first time in my life I am not just going through the motions (school, university, job etc.)
💥 For the first time in my life I am more in control of my mindset and self-belief than I have ever been
💥 For the first time in my life I feel like I am where I meant to be
I am doing it MY way
And I am taking all of those experiences, feelings and emotions along with me for the ride!
