Your job..good, bad or *bleh*
So today is “International Image Consultants Day” (who knew!) and it got me thinking about who makes these “days” and, if each role and profession had one- how it would it make you reflect on the job you do?
It has certainly made me reflect on how I feel about my job. Most of the time I feel very blessed that I can earn a living doing something that is so positive, creative, fun and above all- enables me to have an inside chance of being there at the school pickup. I get to work with brilliant and interesting people every day and fulfil my passion of helping them be the best that they can be…in how they look or who they are.
However, like all things there are downsides….working for yourself is lonely. The buck firmly stops with me and only me… There has been many a time when I have cried a frustrated tear or two over a broken **!**!***! computer with no “tech department” to call on! I am now finding my support and “office pals” in the wonderful community that is Instagram; every day I find more and more people to add to my “gang” to share my passion with…so while I am *technically* working for myself, at least with social media there is someone who can give you a little on a Monday morning and ask how your weekend was!
So- if you had a day that was all about celebrating the job or role you do…what would you reflect are the good bits that make you want to get out of bed each morning and what are the bits you would gladly change? Do you feel you have the right support to do the best job you can or would you rather jack it all in and go it alone?
The grass is not always greener…but it could be if you feel you are currently in the wrong job or are desperate to do something different.
If this has got you thinking about whether you need to make a career change or any changes in your life- give me a call and we can have an initial chat to discuss how I could help…
