Transitions

October 18 2012

I’m often asked how I made the transition from social work to social curation. If I’m honest, I never dreamed of having my own business or running my own show. In fact, for a very long time, I was looking for the perfect job, desperately trying to figure out how to craft the perfect cover letter to land the interview that would set me on a fulfilling and profitable career path.

I wish I could say I woke up one morning and realized this dream job was something I could actually create.

It started slowly, with an idea, and — drip by drip! — grew from experimentation to action.

You, too, can start small. You don’t need to have a finished product on the table before you decide to go. Simply identify what’s important to you, acknowledge your skills, and begin to make choices that excite you.

You don’t have to figure it all out today.

The things that really mean something take time.
