With guilt I looked at this blog today. It’s been a couple months since I posted, and while I could give you a thousand excuses for why, that’s boring. In January I took a chance and started at a new Office With a View- a social media agency. I was excited about following my (professional) passions: marketing, social media, shopper marketing. I knew it would be challenging. I knew I was leaving a good job with good people in a good city. Yet, I took a risk- something I am not particularly good at. I’m that girl that likes to review options and play it safe. But this time I knew I couldn’t sit back.
And now, several months later, it’s exciting to look back, all the while looking ahead. It’s been a crazy and busy ride thus far, but I wouldn’t trade it. I’m excited about the adventure my “new” Office With a View is taking me on. I get to work with great people, bloggers, brands, retailers… so neat. I’m learning a lot, to say the very least. So I guess this is my verbal commitment to take risks- smart risks. To not sit back and wait for life to happen. Cliche, yes. But boring- no. What risks are you taking, professionally, personally?
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
