Hi Mag and ladies! What a beautiful concept and community you have here. It’s the best website of this kind I’ve seen, where someone actually seems to care and get involved. Congrats!
About me… I’m a control freak, so I’ve always been good in team management roles. I’ve been working 100% remotely in the last 2.5 years and this week I’ve just started a 9-5 office job. I am blown away by the mistake I made. I am sitting in the office and counting minutes. I need to get off it asap (my resignation letter is written already) and back to a remote job that will challenge me and allow me to be creative while putting at work my best skills.
I’ve been quite confused about the direction I should take my career towards. After 10 years in operations and project management, I then ran an online fitness business for 2 years (with branding, email marketing, social media paid ads, live webinars, website building, sales etc), then I decided to get into an industry (Microsoft Dynamics 365) everybody was saying it’s pretty much impossible to get into with 0 experience. I got in and went from intern to Practice Lead in 5 months.
Now I don’t know which direction to take. I keep chasing the latest trends and up skilling myself, but I don’t feel I’m doing something I really enjoy. If any of you lovely ladies have some advice for me, I would very much appreciate it. Would a career coach help? My brains are packed with podcasts and books I keep listening to, trying to find my way, but none have helped much. The one good thing I’ve heard lately was Naval Ravikant saying “do what you’re naturally good at, without chasing what’s hot all the time, because by the time you get it, that’s not hot anymore”.
