Is there something you have always known you wanted to do? When I was a growing up there was only career which stood out to me. Even though I loved playing soccer and could do that every day (even now), I never dreamed of being a professional athlete.
Instead, I wanted to be a lawyer!
Maybe it was the shows I was watching. After all, my favorites were shows like Perry Mason and Matlock. I loved the seersucker suits and southern drawls so when it was on (ah, network/cable television!) I would watch it with so much excitement. I really wanted to also watch LA Law but my mom would not let me- I guess there was a lot more than just “lawyering” going on!
So, I reached my goal and loved it. It was a proud moment, and season to be in. Then I decided to go for another! My work overlapped often with Real Estate so I decided to take the plunge and dive into another career.
And I am so thankful I did! It has allowed me to meet incredible people and help them too. I learn so much from the people around me and aim to stay connected so we can keep inspiring and teaching each other.
What about you? What did you want to “be” when you were a kid? I would love to hear and look forward to your reply!
