ABOUT CAREER FEATURE
Welcome to the Career Feature Section of Poochi’s Place! If you have read the About section, then you may know that I am a career-driven woman and I am open to sharing my experiences along my roller coaster of a journey (in fact, that’s one of my purpose for creating this blog) – I thought what a great idea it would be to FEATURE successful people who are succeeding in this world as well! I am a visual person – seeing is believing. I want to bring real life people to you and display their greatness to the world; showing that we all have greatness within us, we just have to harvest it. Thus, these Career Features, is my hope, to inspire and motivate millennials to pursue their dreams.
The blueprint for Millennials is different in today’s world. Walking the straight and narrow just does not cut it anymore; i.e. graduate high school, then off to college – graduate, then work in the same job for the next 30 years until retirement. At one point there was a certain “guarantee” that walking that line would automatically lead to success, but we millennials know that is not true in today’s debt-driven world. What is now true is that there are no guarantees and we are better off working towards doing something we love – as scary as that may be. [Furthermore, I think it is more scary to walk the straight and narrow and never be successful (yes, yes, I know success is personal to the individual however, we all know it when we see it for ourselves) – but that’s just me.] So while the blueprint may be different and a bit more blurry, there is still many ways to achieve the things we think are impossible. So here, by laying out examples and success stories, I hope to spark the creation of your own blueprint.
BLACK AND WHITE
Everything is not black and white; and picking one door is not the case anymore. You do not have to choose between being a doctor or lawyer or [insert traditional career role here]. There are MANY options that can work simultaneously together. I found the issue for me has been managing time and mending my creative entrepreneurial pursuits. Once those bumps were conquered, then the picture became more clear. It most certainly helps to know others’ stories in similar positions because it creates guidance. It is comforting to know that you are not alone; seeing how someone else has chosen multiple doors and made it work for them is also encouraging.
No one career is one size fits all. It is a journey of trials, errors and DO OVERS. As cliche as it is, you won’t know until you TRY and DO. So I will encourage you to read these stories, take your own chances, make some mistakes, learn and grow from those mistakes, achieve your dreams, then share it with the world because the world needs to hear it!
