What does a workaholic do when they’re supposed to be taking it easy? This…Â
I am pregnant, very very pregnant. And I’m a business machine and I just can’t sit still.
To put this in contextâ€¦ Iâ€™ve been working since grade 6. I am obsessed with business challenges that seem insurmountable (to most). I have spent my career launching and growing businesses. For one of my recent clients, I led initiatives in rebranding, marketing, sales, continuous improvement, project management and IT! In three short years, we more than doubled revenue. We hit our three-year targets 40% ahead of schedule. I gave up my desk because I never sat down.
Iâ€™ve already exhausted all baby prep options. Nursery is prepped and painted. Clothes are washed and ready. Hospital bag is queued in the hall. Now can I please go back to work!?!?!
So, here I am in a predicament that I think a lot of women find themselves…
- Wanting to contribute
- Wanting to give
- Wanting to grow
- Wanting to build…
and they’re on pause.
I know as a pregnant woman, my body is making a life and I know thatâ€™s hard work. Everyone tells me to focus on that. But I miss seeing businesses grow and seeing people light up when they discover a new potential they didn’t know they had. So, here I am… very hungry and eager to contribute, so HIT ME UP!
What do you want to know aboutâ€¦
- Finding a job
- Starting a business
- Growing a new business
- Growing an established business that has plateaued
- Searching for a job as a seasoned executive out of work for the first time in decades?
Since youâ€™re not me, Iâ€™ll have the objectivity to give you insight that would quite frankly cost you a lot of money if you were to pay for it. Right now, why not take advantage of a ready and willing coach?!
Let’s see who has the guts to actually send in a question.
