I remember the feeling of lost hopelessness.
I remember when the idea of being an entrepreneur seemed like a joke. A temporary solution until I found my next recruiter role with some random company.
I remember when my friends would think I wasn’t working because I was collecting unemployment and running a casual freelancing business.
But then I remember also how hard I worked every day to convert my brand into more than just a freelancing writing house.
I remember building my business into a business.
I remember trying over multiple times until I had some rhythm to the madness that is running a small business.
I found my processes, which I continuously tweak.
I found my calling.
Looking back, being laid off in 2009 was the best thing that could have happened to my career.
It gave me a reset.
It gave me new life.
It gave me a purpose.
So as I reach the 800-LinkedIn recommendation threshold, I sometimes have to pinch myself because I’m also very lucky to be where I am.
Working hard. Working smart. Working with some lucky breaks.
So keep up your hard work, doing what you’re doing.
Focus on the things that will progress you through your career.
Drop the time-sucking protocols.
And keep rockin’!
If you need help with your transition, hit me up, let’s rock it together 🤘🤘🤘
