I worked for FB for 3 years and while working with them I invest in learning so much that my brain was on fired all times. I got burned out many times but it was worth it.
I worked hard because my main goal in life is to grow and have a future and be successful. I always wanted to run my own business because my whole family had their own business. My mom owns a salon, my dad built homes and my sister she has her own Pilates studio. The Entrepreneur Family!
In these 3 years, I invested in a few courses, training and e-learning. My worked gave me ads coupons that helped me boost my work by creating ads and learning the process. I ended up creating my own website which you can check on my bio. Spent time learning about platforms and marketing. I was aiming at building an audience and sharing trend topics that people need help.
I decided to keep practicing until one day who knows I would be running my own agency. I am growing on youtube but is a very slow process when your efforts are mostly organic, hard to grow fast. I put my heart into youtube decide to make videos and learn all that it takes. Despite act like a snail!
Sudden I lose my job without notice. It took weeks to the company finally release me from the books. At least I was getting paid and I was taking this opportunity to save as much as I could for my living expenses. Losing a job is stressful. I got super depressed. I already suffer from anxiety and PTSD and going thru this moment it was awful.
I took a break from everything for a few days then decided to brush my resume and portfolio and apply for jobs. I was getting noticed but not hired. I guess is super competitive in my field.
After no success in getting a job…
I was worry about my health and my car payments and common financial challenges. I took this phase of my life and look as it was an unexpected solution.
I cried a lot but after a few days, I decided to take this as a blessing opportunity and see the experience in a different way.
Everything takes time to unfold.
Recently moved with my boyfriend, set up my own office in his place. Today I am focused on doing my own craft until things take shape and form.
I am happy to share that I have signed up with new clients, had consultations with potential bosses.
My story is no greater than any other. All we know that each story we share it might affect us in different ways. The best of anything in life is that everything happens for a reason, season or lifetime.
We need to learn to let go the old and embrace the new even if takes strength and courage.
That is my story for the past 3 years.
