Does anyone else find it easier to process life when sipping a glass of zinfandel while listening to Erykah Badu sing melodically about divine timing? There’s just something about “Next Lifetime” that makes me feel more hopeful about things that are meant for you finding their way back to you. For the record, I’m not mourning a romantic love once lost but entrepreneurship. Hear me out! How many of us have this very familiar, effortless thing we do so naturally that it feels like we’ve been doing it or should be doing it forever? But we convince ourselves that we can’t give up something good for the possibility of THIS something great. It’s starting to make sense right?
As fate would have it, over the past 15 months I have been retired, hired, fired, rehired, and now laid off. Yet while Linkedin and Indeed remind me every day just how hirable I am, I find myself romanticizing about full time authorpreneurship. Of course I’ve taken full inventory of my skills and experience but now through the lens of hiring myself. What would happen if I changed the way I define success for Rice Love Tree and set SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time based) goals for Syrina as an employee? Now I’ve been here before (I mean see my last blog.). However to make things more interesting, God saw fit to make me feel more convicted and even intrepid this time even though the stakes are much higher than they were a year ago.
Inspired by the words of Ms. Badu “Well I know I’m a lot of woman, but not enough to divide the pie,” I’m choosing my dream job for the dopest employer…Me! What’s your dream job? Would you be ready to do it today?
