A New Year, A New Gig
alright, so here’s the news – i quit my job. right now, half of you are like, wait, you work? and the other half of you are like, wait, i really thought you were going to say you were pregnant. sorry to disappoint, but rather than making babies, i’m taking a break for the baby making business…have i got your attention now?
for the last almost 4 YEARS (i can’t believe it’s been 4 years!), i’ve been working in the fertility world. i’ve been helping people who want to have babies, do just that. i’ve been able to do it from the comfort of my own home, most often in yoga pants. i started out doing it while i was still working another full-time job (that was nuts). i kept doing it while i grew a human inside me (that was nuts). and i’ve continued to do it as that human has become EBN (super insane kind of nuts). when EBN sleeps i work. in the morning, during naps and at night – i work. it’s been a blessing. it’s been full of challenge. i’ve been part of an incredible team of women and i’ve felt honored to work alongside a dynamic and extraordinarily committed team of professionals.
there are countless reasons why now is the time for me to leave. but the number 1 reason, without a doubt, is that this job is taking me away from EBN too much. i’m on call – always. i’m needed within a moment’s notice. there is no escape. no office to walk out of. no way to disconnect. and my little girl needs me and wants me now. and so, it’s time for me to go.
i’m excited about the playgroups and music classes and mommy and me time at the temple and beach walks and slow mornings and quiet afternoons that are in our future. i’m excited to no longer carry around two phones. i’m looking forward to not checking email on the weekend.
and i’m looking forward to my next professional adventure too. never one to stop completely, and always, it seems, super fortunate in “it just sorta fell into place,” i’m working on two consulting projects – organizations that are working to make this world, our world, a better place. all you babies that i helped make over the last 4 years? get ready, i’m now going to do my part in making your world a better world.
strategic development and social media consultant – that’s my jam. wanna work together? let’s talk – you know how to find me.
it seems it’s become sorta tradition for us to take a family photo on the jewish new year – a very wiggly photo at that. so from our family to yours – we wish you a season full of health and happiness, laughter and celebration. to celebrate, we’re eating kugel (recipe later this week) and a very sweet watermelon drink (with rum for the grownups). and playing harmonica. lots and lots of harmonica.
