I've spent 20+ years working for governments, institutions and brands, bringing together billion dollar partners, and leveraging their resources to support thousands of people to get jobs, access free therapy, and grow their businesses.
I’d enjoyed it, worked my ass off, but would find myself miserable and burned out when my growth potential stalled.
My satisfaction with work rarely aligned with my promotions or the status of the positions I held. It depended on whether the work was challenging, had growth potential, whether I felt valued, and if was having an impact.
My satisfaction (and the quality of my work) relied on the fit.
We spend a lot of time trying to change ourselves to fit into things that just aren’t right. We assume we are the problem when the fit is off.
Whether fashion, relationships, or jobs, we squeeze, starve, and contort ourselves to try and make it work instead of acknowledging that sometimes it’s just not the right fit and it’s time to move on.
The problem I have seen (and experienced) is that ambitious and goal-getting women get stuck in careers and work opportunities that no longer fit.
We end up working harder, saying yes to more stuff hoping it will lead to more opportunity. But it doesn't work. We end up burned out, feeling frustrated and under appreciated
The truth is, until we face the problem, the fit, we will always be dealing with those symptoms.
That's where I come in!
