When Life Closes a Door…

...the Universe opens a window, as they say. Sometimes life is so random. I'm sure it makes sense somewhere in the grand architecture of things.

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been feeling "driven" to make some changes professionally. It's been an interesting experience so far. I've heard many "no's", which is to be expected. It bothers me in the moment, but then I get excited because I realize that it means I'm one step closer to a "yes".

I have a few kettles in the fire, pursuing some positions using my skills in the healthcare and life sciences industry. Also, yesterday I recently discovered some opportunities for using my Web, marketing, and writing skills at nonprofit organizations. I have always been a very cause-driven person, so it makes sense. My interest in promoting causes is even reflected in my work through Data-Scribe where I have been fortunate enough to create or rebuild Websites and databases for many nonprofit organizations.

Today after dropping off our daughter at school, Brett and I had a long discussion with one of the other parents about being authentic and aligning your professional goals in such a way that you don't feel like you're selling a product or service, you're just sharing "you". We started out just talking about how to market on the Web and ended up discussing metaphysical topics. What he shared was so compelling that I asked him to do a guest post on this blog soon! We might even collaborate on some work together. I can't wait to see how this unfolds.

Thanks for listening. And please feel free to share where you are in your professional journey in the comments below.
