How are you approaching your career? Or your life in general? Are you going to your job just to get by and pay the bills? Do you try and further your success? Do you not know how to get noticed to make that next step? Most people are punching a clock for someone else, and that is fantastic! It is people like you that make these successful companies run smoothly… and can take them down. You have more control than you realize. But, I often get extremely annoyed with all the excuses people make about their career. They aren’t paid enough, the hours are too long, the boss is a dick…. EXCUSES. Have you done anything to change your situation? It’s vital you have a plan on how to get noticed!
I am guilty of all these things so don’t think I am just calling YOU out. The difference is I did something to change my situation. A few years ago my main excuse was that I couldn’t do anything I was truly passionate about because I lived in a rural part of Texas. Umm, Dru, HELLO? Excuse.
I finally figured out there were so many things that I could do from home but was waiting until I was educated to fully execute those things. I am a perfectionist so it held me back. But I finally took a leap, well… I have taken a lot. And I have fallen on my face a few times (ok, maybe more than I can count). I’ve been a retail manager, aspiring photographer, FREE fashion stylist, salesperson, answered phones, filed papers, bought groceries for my boss, ran errands for FREE and more. You name it, I’ve done it. Through all these experiences I kept wanting more.
My dream was to be in the Fashion industry… and retail was not enough for me. I went from an $11 an hour Abercrombie & Fitch Manager (HELL) to a Producer with an emphasis in Fashion Print producing for the top retailer in the world. Working with the BEST and most creative Photographers, Art Directors, Hair and Makeup Stylists, and Models that you can imagine. These are the people you see shoot the covers of Vogue and campaigns for brands like Louis Vuitton. It wasn’t easy and I sacrificed A LOT. Including my bank account. I was almost at the point of paying to work…. But I would do it all over again. I had to start doing things to get noticed in my career.

Great risks come with great rewards. Get over that fear and just do it! You will never have the excuse of ” I wish I would have done _____”. It won’t be perfect but you’ve got to start somewhere.

Is there something you would rather pursue than your current position? Ready to start your own business? Or it may be that you want to move ahead in the company you currently work for? Talk to your boss to see how you can get that dream position. It may take time, but you have to communicate your goals. This will allow them to invest their time into helping you achieve. They can’t read your mind!!
You may be starting that business on the side of your current job to eventually take place of your current job. Are you exhausting every contact? Yeah, I know, you hate asking people for things. That’s life, get over it! Everyone had to start with asking someone to support them. If you really want it, you will ask. The worst thing that can happen is they say NO.

Are you getting noticed? Have you looked in the mirror? You don’t have to have the latest Stella McCartney bag or look like GiGi Hadid (don’t we all wish), but you do have to look your best. Put some effort into how you present yourself. People are buying YOU. Try harder. Stop wearing your hair in a ponytail every day (unless you are T. Curtis, it suits him)! Don’t wear a boring suit, get noticed and add a special touch to be remembered. Save up for a nice pair of shoes!
