We all have them. Big and small. I’ve been dreaming about this for sometime now.
Believe it or not, it all began over beer. Eight years ago. I was working at a local craft brewery and I came to a cross road.
Should I stay or should I go?
Well, I’m sure you can guess what direction I chose and that decision lead me on the path I’m on today.
Coming into an industry that I knew nothing about was exciting, exhilarating and exhausting. Sure, the allure of working with people from all walks of life was intriguing but that was typical in the beer biz. This career was different, it scared me.
Butterflies and sweaty palms were common for the first couple years but then I really started to gain my confidence. My feet were firmly planted on the ground and I was on a mission. To be a top notch professional and to build long lasting relationships with those whom I had the privilege of serving.
Fast forward to today, I’m looking back on the winding road of twists and turns, peaks and valleys, and all of the pit stops in between.
It has been quite the journey.
Now, it’s time for the next adventure. This route is even longer, steeper and uncharted…well, for me anyway. As I embark on this next chapter in my career, I wonder how the path will look when I reflect eight years from today. Surely, it’ll be filled with stories of laughter & tears. All the best stories do.
That’s my dream, what’s yours?
