Getting what you want from your career

Published 14 days ago • 1 min read

Hello Reader,

We're almost halfway through 2024.

Have you taken a moment to review how your first half of 2024 has been?

What do you want to focus on for the second half of 2024?

I just completed my May review. I do a weekly and monthly review, where I ask:

  • What went well?
  • What didn't?
  • What do I want to drop or change up?

My goal in 2024 is to streamline and focus on doing 1 or 2 things well.

This includes making friends on LinkedIn and sharing my lessons and insights about career, money, and success. Most of the past 2 decades have been spent raising my kids and working to provide a good life for our family. Now that the kids are growing up, I'm shifting gears to focus on the next phase in my career where I give back by helping women navigate their careers.

This is how it is with our careers. It ebbs and flows with the seasons of our lives.

Switching up pace, intensity, and focus depending on what season of life we're in. Yet, most people treat their careers like a straight line, starting at some entry level and progressing upward until they retire.

The reality is that our careers are more like cycles and seasons. Sometimes they take detours, u-turns, and slow down before speeding up again. Some parts even die so that new life can emerge. This is normal, and the whole point of it all, so we get to learn and grow along the way.

Unfortunately, many people get discouraged and disillusioned when things don't go as they expected (me included). But the results and outcomes we want are just signposts. They guide us to become the kind of people who get those results.

You don't get the result you want unless you first become the kind of person who gets those results.

With 2024 halfway through, take a few moments to reflect on the past half a year, and set your priority for the next half.

Who do you have to become to get what you want in your career?

This will be your focus for the second half of 2024 so you can go make that happen!

Hello Reader, I made $30,000 in my side hustles as a full-time working mother. I’m not saying this to show off, but to show it’s possible for you. It took me almost a decade to figure this out. Sure, some tactical strategies and skills took time to learn. But the main reason it took so long was how fast and willing I was to change myself. Specifically, there were 5 mental leaps I had to take. If you’re a corporate employee with dreams of making multiple income streams from your side hustle,...

Hello Reader, I've noticed this trend recently. A lot of successful people are saying the same thing. The single most important ingredient to their success has been Patience They've said it in different ways, like Delusion Stupidity Putting in the reps But they all point to this singular spirit of having patience. Patience to do the work.Patience to practice and improve.Patience to continue even when it's boring.Patience to allow the seeds they planted to bear fruit. Yet in our modern life,...
