I may physically be in the office today... but mentally I am here💛 #happyplace
To you this may just look like a really bad one-eyed selfie, and you wouldn’t be wrong... because it totally is. Clearly I don’t take selfies often. 🤷🏼♀️ But this picture means so much to me. . . It’s a simple picture. I’m in cut off jean shorts and a comfy t-shirt in my office. My typical work attire. . . I stayed at my parents last night and as I left my dad said, “Wearing shorts to the office today?” And I responded with, “Yep! Because I am the boss.” . . After I said that I had one of those proud “aha!” moments. I am the boss. I took a leap of faith when I was scared and landed here, on my own two feet, alive and well. . . Because I took that leap, I now work with a killer company that I love, with some of the greatest people I’ve ever met, have my own office that I pay for and I get to wear cut off jeans to work. 😍 . . But none of that would have happened if I didn’t listen to my heart, trust my gut, and believe that I could. . . I am living out my dream because I believe I can. I believe in myself. I believe in my dreams. And I believe that everything will always be okay. . . So this may seem like a super simple one-eyed picture, but there is so much excitement and pride behind it. . . We all need to celebrate our victories and give ourselves a pat on the back when we take a risk and go after our dreams. Today I am doing exactly that. ☺️ . . What are the big goals you are working towards? . . Are you taking a minute to stop, say thanks, and celebrate where you are and how far you’ve come? . . #mindfulmillennial #millennialblogger #lovewhatyoudo #dowhatyoulove #recruiter #entrepreneur #technologyrecruiter #celebrate #grateful
NEW BLOG!! “How badly do you REALLY want it?” - Relationship advice from a recruiter . . . When I first started recruiting my boss would always compare situations we were working through to relationships. For example, leaving your job is like breaking up with a significant other. . . The more I recruited, the more I realized just how true this was. . . When recruiting, one of the most important questions has always been, “how badly do the really want it?” . . When looking for the answer to this question during and interviewing process, I started to notice how differently people act when they really want something compared to when they don’t. . . I wanted to share those signs with you today, so for the next interview or date you go on, you can have a better gauge after on how interested they really are. . . . #recruiting #relationships #interviewing #mindfulmillennial #millennialblogger #lovewhatyoudo #dowhatyoulove #danman
