Let me paint a terrifyingly common picture; you are in a job that you once loved and for whatever reason that spark is now gone and you are feeling worn down. Not just worn down, you are feeling deeply unhappy. This isn’t a storm that will pass. You know the expiration date has been met and you want to leave. No, you need to leave. But you can’t. You are stuck. You know you must leave but first you must get over the guilt you feel about leaving.
Finding a career mentor is something I have wanted/needed to do for quite some time but I have been putting it off. It was living in the ‘too hard basket’ until recently when I decided to procrastinate no more and reach out to my ideal woman. I share my full experience, from start to finish, including a cold-email template based off what I sent and a list of questions to ask!
If you asked me as a 5-year-old, a 10-year-old or even a 20-year-old you would have heard one of three answers; vet, school teacher, cafe owner. Not in a million years would I have thought I would be a General Manager for an agency. And I definitely would not have thought I would have found myself in this role at 22-years-old.
