Defining SHUT UP Moment:
What brought me to do the work I do today started with utter disaster five years ago. I was engaged to my high school sweetheart. It was both of our second marriages. Then our engagement ended the night before our wedding day. I worked at his company so that ended too. I had no family to fall back on. It was one of those moments where you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
I didn’t have a degree and I was 40 so I was worried I wouldn’t qualify for jobs. I couldn’t even get hired to wait tables or anything. So I put my resume out to every job on Craigslist. Three days later got an interview in New York. I ended up getting a job at a high end real estate firm. That’s when my reinvention began. I had 20 dollars in my pocket and two suitcases. I got on the plane. Sad and scared as I was, I knew I was my own golden ticket. From there I worked at a PR firm. I still didn’t make enough money so I waited tables. I ended up going back to school while holding down two jobs. And that became the genesis of what I’m doing now.
