💡Millennial Career Strategist  I help high-achievers secure their next dream job in 90 days or less 👀 Forbes, Fast Company, & more 📍HTX (Clients 🌎) 👇🏾Start here

🗣 Your career affects your life. No, not just how well you live, or where you live. It affects your confidence, your self-esteem, your relationships and yes, it can even affect your health.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know I can’t be the only one who’s ever:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏾 Chose to stay in rather than go out to avoid questions like, “What do you do?”
👉🏾 Used going out with friends as an escape because work was causing stress upon stress
👉🏾 Lashed out (one too many times) on a friend or significant other because you had a bad day (too many day days) at work
👉🏾 Lied and said “Work’s been good” knowing that it’s been anything but!
👉🏾 Contemplated your self-worth and if you were even good enough to have a better career
👉🏾 Compared yourself to others because they seemed so happy in their careers and you felt the very opposite
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The list goes on and on, and on 😭
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your career isn’t your life, but when you have a career you love, it makes your life that much better. And when you don’t? Well, see above 😩

Is it possible to get a more senior level position at a new company, in a new city, without a big network of contacts?? 👀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Um, yes! 💡
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My client Brittany did it! She moved from San Francisco to Atlanta, didn’t have a huge network and after working together secured a senior level role at her dream company.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On top of that, she applied to this company before working together and it didn’t work out. Now, she’s working there. 🔥
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As if that’s not enough, she snagged a $10K salary increase and used the negotiation strategies I taught her to secure WFH Fridays, every Friday. 👏🏾
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, what’s impossible for you again?? 🤔
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re ready to take your career to the next level & secure a more more challenging and exciting role at a better company, you can do it! And, I’m here to help you.

Can’t wait to help you accomplish your career goals this year!

Sundays are for Netflix + Chill. Plus, meal prepping, if you’re into that like me.👩🏾‍🍳 Plus, quietly freaking about Monday, if you hate your job. (Trust me, I’ve been there.) But let’s focus on the good right now, shall we?💆🏾‍♀️ What are you all watching on Netflix these days? I need new suggestions. 😭 Movies & Tv shows are welcomed with open arms.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here’s what I’ve been watching this summer, traveling gave me lots of time: The Cable Girls (I don’t usually do Telenovelas but listen, this one got me + it’s in English 🙌🏾), Ozark, The Kissing Booth, OA (it’s been on Netflix for awhile and it’s not my typical type of show but it hooked me 👀), Life Sentence, Grace & Frankie (love them!), When We First Met, & Like Father.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now, your turn. Whatcha got? 🤗

Ugh, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve done this and walked away feeling very silly! 😂🤦🏾‍♀️ Who else is guilty? 🙋🏾‍♀️

I’m the #1 spokesperson for never settling for less — if you know you deserve more in your career and life, go after it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re unappreciated at work, find a better company. If you’re underpaid, do your research and ask for a raise. If you’re uninspired, find a role that better aligns with your passion, skills and interest.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But, let’s be clear:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
No matter how much you strive for the things you want, you’ll never be fully happy, if your peace, joy and fulfillment come from "what you do," "what you have," or "what you've done."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To be truly happy, your peace and joy must come from "who you are."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So are you happy with who you are?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Who you are makes the most difference, no matter what you do or what you have.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Drop this emoji 👏🏾 in the comments if you agree.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S. Thank you to everyone who attended last night’s masterclass, you guys make what I do so much fun and worthwhile 💃🏾

Guess what happened when I decided to apply for 10-20 positions a week!? 😭
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nothing.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Zero. Zip. Nada.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I tried that method years ago before graduating college and I got no results.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It took longer. It was so much more stressful. I was overwhelmed and discouraged. And most importantly, it didn’t work. It was a waste of time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every position I’ve landed since then has come by using a much more simpler strategy, and I teach my clients the same system that’s helped them secure their dream jobs in 90 days or less.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And, tonight, in my FREE masterclass, I’m sharing 3 powerful stress-free secrets to help you secure the position you’ve been chasing, even if you’ve already had interview after interview with no job offer, or have no idea where to start.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, are you coming? 👀👀

“Decide who you are, and everything else around you will move according to your decision."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I wholeheartedly believe that to be true.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you can change your mindset, you can change your life.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's how I changed my life.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here's the secret:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's not that you can't do what you want to do. It's that you think that you can't do what you want to do and you tell yourself that you can't do what you want to do.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You can't get the job you want at that company or in that industry. You can't get paid that much. You can't have a career that makes you happy. You think that it's possible for everyone else, but you. 👀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But it isn’t. It’s possible for you too. You know you deserve it. You know you’re qualified for it. It’s time to go after it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In my masterclass tomorrow night, I’ll be talking all about how to overcome this mindset block, along with ✌🏾 other powerful stress-free secrets that will help you secure the position you’ve been chasing.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This may be exactly what you need to hear to reach your career goals before the end of this year! 🙌🏾

Let’s check-in: Are you where you want to be? 👀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Or, have you been moving on auto-pilot for so long that you haven’t even taken a moment to check? I had to pause the other day and ask myself these same questions.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
— Have you tossed your goals to the side? — Are you still actively pursuing the things you said you wanted to achieve earlier this year? — Has life changed your goals? If it has, how and what do you need to start focusing on instead?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s still so crazy to me that we’re 9 months into 2018. As the months fly on by, it’s so easy to get caught up in everything going on and forget about the plans you had for yourself at the top of this year.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’ve yet to accomplish the goals you had for 2018, it’s time to check-in with yourself to figure what’s been holding you back and what steps you need to take to finish the year strong.

Just imagine ✨

Most people have already decided that they will never be 100% happy anyway, because who gets everything they want out of life?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most people do not like a certain aspect of their lives and will complain about it for the rest of their lives.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most people will continue to use "I don't have time" as an excuse for why they haven't stretched past their comfort zone.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most people will use the excuse "I don't know how" as a crutch for not achieving the things they desire.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most people won't take the time to invest in themselves because it's more comfortable to complain than to take responsibility for your life and to be accountable for your actions.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Few people push past their comfort zones and go after the life, career, relationships and income they truly want.

There's always something to be celebrated and there's always something that could be done better.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The real question is, what do you choose to focus on?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Instead of focusing on all the things you don’t have or have yet to do, focus on the things you're doing and the things you've done.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you're actively taking steps to be where you want to be, to become who you want to become, then you're headed in the right direction.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You're much further along than you think, and even when you have one bad or lazy day, you have what it takes to get back up the next day and give it your all.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Trust yourself.

Who do you want to be right now?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So often we get caught up trying to figure out what we want to do and who we want to be in the long-run.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And, when we can’t figure it out, we end up feeling stuck and unhappy, unsure of what steps to take next.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But instead of trying to map out this large eloquent 5-year plan, who do you want to be right now? What excites you now? What makes you feel scared, yet intrigued?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We have no idea how our life, passions and circumstances will evolve over time. Heck, 5 years ago if you would’ve told me I’d be a career strategist, I probably would’ve laughed in your face 😂 But here I am and I Iove what I do.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So who do you want to be right now? Start there.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And, trust that your decision will lead you to where you need to be. ✨
