Many of you know that I ran my first 1/2 Marathon last year. While I was training for the 1/2 I did a lot of internal reflection. I realized I was challenging myself personally, but wasn’t really challenging myself professionally.
I loved my job and I enjoyed it – but quite frankly I was really good at it and I could do most things in my sleep. It was time to do something new and different. Prior to the 1/2 I looked into a new position but it just wasn’t meant to be. But then I received a phone call on April 17, 2015 that would change everything! Fast forward to the middle of June and I started my new Sales Manager position!! (the hardest thing about making the change – was calling my team and telling them the news!)
And let me tell you – it was and is a challenge and I love it!!! I was able to make an impact in that short time by improving employee/partner morale, grow the business and get my team earning some $$! Some changes were made earlier this year and I have even more responsibility and big challenges ahead. And I love it! I’m challenged, growing and learning – and unlike one of my favorite U2 songs (and I was at MSG for this one last year) – I found exactly what I was looking for!!!
