A new job in a new town!

12 Nov


It’s been a long time since I’ve written. I was deep in thought, when last we spoke, about my decisions and what to make of them. As this quote says, my plan for my life did not work out as I had hoped and I was also wondering about my move into sales full time and if it was for me. Well, after much time, I have to say it most definitely is not! The life of a full-time sales person definitely was killing me. I’m an introvert by nature, and so much of sales is based on the extrovert personality. While I learned, adapted, and did well, I did nothing else outside of work and that was killing me slowly…

Flash forward to today. Today is one of my last days in Frederick, MD as I move to a new life and new path with the great company at Carmax. I’ve accepted a position as Art Director at the home office and start on Monday! So while I may have been doubting my desire to keep pushing on in graphic design with all this hardship and strife over the last decade, I can unequivocally say I’m on the right path and it’s all paid off! I’m so excited to be working with such a great company. The choice to take on sales primed me for what is next and got my foot in the door with a great business, great people, and amazing opportunities for growth.

To those that have supported me on my journey, I thank you. To those that didn’t understand, I wish you the best in your own personal journey. To those that became my dearest friends through all of this, words can not express what you mean to me.

Now back to packing! 😀moved
