PLS NOTE: This episode was published before we changed the show's name to Your Power Outlet.
(If you are curious as to Why?, tune into Ep. 19, where I share my raw and uncut journey to finding clarity).
Here’s the Power Seat’s challenge:
“Well I am struggling with work things.
I am professionally trained to be a certain thing, which is obvious to people and an easy job to have, vs my entrepreneurial side which has to be justified to people a lot more than my job.
I am responsible for my family and so it would be very easy to flip back to my job, but I don’t know that it’s necessarily what would serve me and my family.
It has a glass ceiling for professional growth and income, where my entrepreneurial venture could be far more lucrative but is unpredictable and I don’t have the regular pay check.
What I do have is flexibility to be there for my family when I need to be there and from a financial limit, the sky is the limit.
I really struggle with people’s opinions.
It would be easy to go back and I did take a contract this fall to give it a whirl. It was a really good litmus test for my family.
It made me appreciate that I may not be prepared to go back and work my job.
How do I stop listening to all that chatter. People’s opinions. Everyone feels like they can weigh in.
And it is also perception. I need to stop allowing people’s perceptions make me doubt what I know could be.”
Tune into the Episode 16, to hear how other women have navigated similar experiences, from which we all get to choose what resonates and what we want to be intentional about doing differently moving forward.
Your Power Outlet Podcast format is easy to replicate in your own world.
What would the outcome be if you ignited your own #PowerOutlet within your organization, at an upcoming conference, or amongst like-minded individuals?
