My new job is pretty awesome. I can pretty much come and go when I please. I’m doing things that I love to do. I work independently. I manage 3 brands and control how they look and feel. It finally feels like I’m moving up in life!
I’ve been working two jobs for the last couple weeks. My normal salary job and a contract job with a jewelry startup company. Social media consulting and contracting might be the future career I’m looking for. I LOVE working on different types of projects and helping small businesses grow through social media. I love working with a company that puts a very high value on social media marketing. It’s nice to feel valued as someone who’s entire life and career is about social media.
If anyone needs social media advice or a consultation, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org!
When new and exciting opportunities pop up, grab life by the damn balls! I’ve been wanting to do social media consulting/contracting for awhile now. It gives me the opportunity to work with a lot of different types of companies and brands. I might get an opportunity to work with a startup company on a contract basis so I’m super pumped about it.
If you’re in need of a low cost social media expert to help you with your social channels, content management, design, photography and blogging, get at me! 🙂
Work wear has been something I’ve struggled with in my short life as a working adult. I have a certain, distinct style that doesn’t easily translate to a work environment. So I’ve been experimenting with how to blend my personal style (90s hood punk + witch) with my burgeoning role as a manager.
Tip 1: Buy pieces you can easily take from day to night.
Tip 2: BASICS ARE YOUR BEST FRIENDS. Get the same shirt in 5 colors. Boom there’s a whole week right there.
Tip 3: Invest in a few different kinds of eye glasses. I know this is weird, but trust me, it’s definitely helped me break up the monotony of the work week.
Tip 4: When in doubt, buy it in black. If you’re trying out something crazy and new (like a romper or high waisted slacks) do NOT get them in a funky print or color. Ease yourself into it.
Tip 5: Ditch the khakis. Leave that shit for the men. We have it easier than they do. Put on a dress and we’re good!
Ambition is an interesting thing. I have a lot of it. I have this drive to succeed at whatever it is that I am doing. No matter if I like it or not. I was at a job I hated for an entire year and I still excelled at it the best I could because I refuse to fail. I take every task head on and I like getting things done. Preferably alone. But that part I attribute to my control freakness.
Ambition is the hunger to achieve what you want. Everyone talks about their dreams and goals but I see a lot people lacking the motivation to get there. It’s a shame because everyone, yes everyone, deserves a shot at their dreams. Some people will say “the world needs worker bees” or “not everyone can go for their dreams.” I think that’s an extremely detrimental attitude to have. That says that some dreams are worth more than others, that some people are worth more than others.
As long as you have the drive and the ZEAL you can get what you want. I firmly believe that.
Ahhh I’m back! I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve posted. Sorry about that. NYE was insane but you already knew that and OSU won the Sugar Bowl!!!!! Next up, the National Championships ^_^ Can’t wait for it!
Currently at work trying to get ahead of all the stuff I need to do. My title got updated so I am the Social Media Comm. Lead which is pretty cool 🙂 So now I’m on a good path to being promoted to manager within the next few months. SO excited!
I really want the opportunity to step up and have more responsibility. I know I can manage my workload well while still being creative and innovative. I just want a chance to manage my own team. I think it’ll be a good opportunity for me and I want to share my knowledge with other people. This is the path I want for myself. I finally know exactly what I want to do with my life. And that’s an awesome feeling.
Had a good day today of shooting photos for the blog. It was a lot of fun! This is definitely my favorite part of the job for sure. Ready to take our blogs to the next level woooooo. I need to work on this blog and taking it to the next level too! I’ll work on getting better photos of my outfits up here for sure.
Well its been 30 days since I started this job and I have finally made my first mistake! It was minor but man I hate when that happens. Because I like being self-sufficient and efficient and now I have to double check with people before I post photos. Sigh. Hopefully in 6 months I won’t have to do that. That’s the worst part about being new, you can’t do everything on your own. And I’m a weirdly independent person.
Another busy busy day. I seriously can’t wait until Friday. My best friend’s coming. I’ll have someone to go to campus with! And drink all day with and I’m so excited ;-; It’s gonna be an awesome weekend. And I get to wear my new OSU Varsity hoodie 😀 GAH I wish it was Friday now. Oh well, this week will fly by I’m sure. I’m so busy with all these projects. The day is already going by fast.
