We are all trying to climb that ladder, whether it is the corporate ladder or the entrepreneurship ladder. We’re all trying to better ourselves, right? Well, I am taking it upon myself to make it a GOAL to improve my career greatly BEFORE I go on holiday for Thanksgiving. I know that sounds like a lot to accomplish, but you’d be surprise at how simple growing your career can be.
So, I am going to share with all you ambitious bosses out there how I am going to improve MY career before thanksgiving and what you can do also.
How To Improve Your Career Before Thanksgiving
Get feedback. Get some constructive criticism (or praise) from your supervisors OR from your clients. I know that can be a little scary. Nobody likes to hear they are doing things wrong, but that is the BEST opportunity to learn what you can do better. I am going to be creating this month a survey for my current clients so that I can get some genuine feedback and figure out how I can do a better job for my clients!
Read. EDUCATE YOURSELF. You never stop learning. Read some books on your career field. I am in the search right now of a good book for social media managers specifically. I know SOMEBODY has to have written a book just for people in this career field and I am going to find it. Find a book directly related to your career field and READDDD.
Take some chances. Success CANNOT happen without risk. Ask for that raise. Reach out to those brands. Send out some cold emails or DMs. Do something you’re afraid to do that might help your business. You’ll feel so much more confident in yourself afterwards even if it doesn’t do what you hope.
Enlist in a class or course. Again I say, START LEARNING. I don’t mean those free courses. Those are good for beginners but usually only have the most basic information. To truly further yourself you are going to need to invest in YOU. Invest in your education. Invest in furthering your knowledge. OKAY, ok..
Start paying attention to your health. I am becoming a GENUINE advocate for mental health for entrepreneurs and girl bosses because for some reason we seem to think that the grind means constantly working and ignoring our health. Start paying attention to both your physical AND mental health. I am definitely preaching to myself right now cause my health…. especially physically is dangerously low!
Positive Thinking and Manifestation. Your thoughts are POWERFUL. I have been practicing manifestation and it has been a game changer for my business and THEREFORE I am going to be doing it even more so and letting all of the wealth and wonderfulness and power and dominion over the world (WAIT, HUH) wash over me.
Gratitude. You cannot grow and move forward without first recognizing how blessed you are to be in the position that you are in. There are so many people who WISH they could have your job or a job at all. There are so many people who dream of being an entrepreneur or starting their own thing but don’t have the balls to go for it, but you did. Remember that and practice gratitude every single day.
These are some of the things I am going to be doing within the next few weeks in order to push myself further ahead this Fall and to reach a new milestone BEFORE Thanksgiving.
