Networking can be fun!

Networking has always been hard for me (surprisingly). But, it’s how I build connections and found clients. It’s a tool that will always come in handy!

These questions always pop into my mind:
“oh… should I introduce myself now?”
“Shit… I only brought 4 business cards and one went into the lucky draw!”
“Ugh.. how do I leave this convo without making it awkward.”

Leaving the nine-to-five.

I just finished running a quick work errand before I headed back to the office and I see a girl walking on the street with her Lululemon yoga mat in one hand and a cold-pressed juice in the other.

My exact thoughts, “It’s 11 in the fucking morning… does she not have a job? I bet she’s heading home right now to make herself a post-workout avocado on toast.”

I need her job.

The scene I just described to you happened to me about half a year ago. No joke, and was one of the moments that made me realize that I needed to leave my 9-5. Let me just start off by saying that I didn’t hate my job. I loved my job but I needed a change in environment and more growth because it started to feel like the same shit, different pile.

Event Prep

A lot of times people ask me how the heck I have time to manage 7 social media accounts, work a full-time job and attend events. Tbh, sometimes idk how I function with close to no downtime. But, nonetheless, I make each event I attend worth my while.

Attending events is crucial to my career (for anyone in PR tbh #realtalk) for not only networking but learning purposes. Often times after an eventĀ I feel rejuvenated and refreshed; usually from a shift in mindset, learning something new, or a good kick in the butt kind of reminder of some sort.
