2022 Life and Career Changes

Covid and an earthquake changed my career trajectory. In early 2020, I was on cloud nine, and I was excited about where the brand was heading. It had been my great privilege to serve as the Marketing Coordinator for the company, and I loved everything they stood for and the people I worked with. But in early 2020, it became evident that Covid was changing things and how businesses were going to survive the pandemic. Everyone was questioning how their industry might be affected. And to add insult to injury, an earthquake damaged a warehouse with which we worked also complicating things. It was a rough period of time for literally every person in the world.


 

Thankfully I was able to land at a lovely home decor company as their Marketing Coordinator. As an avid antique lover and all things home decor, it was an exciting adventure to embark upon. The job was part-time which led me to start thinking about how I should fill my time. With much prayer and fasting, I determined it was time to go back to school and work on my degree. I selected Digital Marketing as my focus and set to work completing the coursework that would provide me that degree.

It has been a long and often tiring road filled with classes that I hated (Operations Management), and classes that I loved (Marketing Analytics). I learned that I don't retain things as well as I used to; but if I love something, I'll dive as deep as I can into the subject. I took classes in Business Strategy, Social Media and Content Management, Accounting and Economics; and I worked with some amazing teams in consulting and group projects. It was humbling, fascinating, difficult, challenging, and wonderful all at once. I knew I was doing exactly what I wanted and learning things I had always wanted to know more about.

With classes soon coming to an end, I knew it was time to find a new place to fall. I began the job hunt looking for a place in which I could expand my marketing career. I love talking about business, brands, and products that excite me. Marketing was the perfect place for me to be and so began the hunt for the job where I could perhaps make a difference and grow with the company.

I have learned a lot about myself during the interview process. I learned my strengths. I recognized some areas in which I needed to improve. I could see my progress over the years. I reminisced about all the jobs that I have had the privilege of holding. And I looked forward to finding something new that was a good fit both for me, as well as, the company I would work for. 

As I currently look for that perfect position, I feel very blessed and wanted to say a very deep thank you to some incredible people. Thank you to those who invited me into your company family. Thank you to those who gave me opportunities to grow. Thank you to those who became my life-long friends. Thank you to those who gave me priceless advice and unique adventures. I am incredibly grateful for every place at which I have worked because each place had something special about it. I'm one lucky girl, and I'm looking forward to what's next!

  15. WHAT A GREAT MIRACLE (HERPES) IS GONE... It’s obvious some patients with herpes are being enslaved to the antiviral and other supplementary Orthodox medicine just to help suppress the virus and not a cure. I have been with the virus since 2018 until I was introduced by a blogger who also narrated her story online on how she was cured of Genital Herpes after using Dr Afrid Herbal Medicine. This is a year and 3 weeks since I was delivered from genital Herpes. All thanks to God for using this Great herbalist to heal me. I have promised to keep telling good things about Dr Afrid. Please feel free to share Your problems with him and don’t forget to tell him I did refer you to Him. Thanks. Write to him on mail drafridherbalhome@gmail.com or add him on WhatsApp +2349057260738 . He deals with Alzheimer virus, Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Genital warts, ALS, BV, UTI, Virginal infection, Hepatitis A/B, Bye..

  23. Balancing Toys: Playful Tools for Developing Coordination and Focus

    Balance toys are not just entertaining playthings; they're valuable tools for fostering a child's physical and cognitive development. These captivating toys come in various shapes and sizes, challenging youngsters to stabilize and coordinate their movements in order to keep them upright.

    These toys serve as excellent aids in refining a child's fine and gross motor skills. As they manipulate these objects, children learn to control their hand-eye coordination, enhance their sense of balance, and develop a deeper understanding of spatial relationships. This process lays the foundation for future physical activities and sports.

    Furthermore, balance toys encourage focus and concentration. As children engage in the task of maintaining equilibrium, they are honing their attention spans and improving their ability to concentrate on specific tasks. This skillset is invaluable for academic pursuits and later endeavors in life.

    Beyond their physical and cognitive benefits, balance toys also stimulate creativity and imagination. Children often invent imaginative games and scenarios involving these toys, allowing them to explore new worlds and ideas.

    Parents and educators alike appreciate the multifaceted advantages of balance toys. They provide an enjoyable and enriching way for children to develop fundamental skills that will serve them well throughout their lives. So, whether it's a wobbly board, a rocking horse, or a balance beam, investing in these toys is an investment in a child's holistic development.
