"One thing I realize is that everything ends up working out. Sometimes even better than you can imagine. Remember this when you're in a
hard place or feel like you're being challenged the most. Believe in where you're heading." ~ Unknown
The quote above I saved a couple of months ago; I know it would come in handy.
When I got laid off in 2019, I had no idea of my path. I had left a job I had for 30 years for a promotional opportunity.
One I was not given by my prior employer, and it was a dream of mine.
Leadership has always been my passion. Then another company acquired
the company where I was working.
I learned having a plan B in your professional or personal life is critical.
Once I knew we were ahead of me, I immediately conducted my career strategist. We began working on my resume and a plan for me to start a possible job search journey.
I was so glad I was proactive and understood what was needed. During this time, I had to have surgery. I needed to be ready.
My proactive actions paid off. I successfully landed a new job and was only unemployed for 1- month.
People ask me if I regret leaving the job I had for over 30- years. I tell them "no" because I love the job I have now. It allows me so much creative license and provides me with work-life harmony.
Always have a Plan - B.
