I am seeking new possibilities. I say possibilities because I would like to move in a new direction in my career. For over 7 years I was an office manager for an architectural firm. Five days a week 9 to 9 1/2 hour days, answering emails, phones, supervising admins, supporting two executives and a host of other responsibilities.
At this stage of my life I would like to have more flexibility, more freedom and in a field of meaningfulness and passion while still making money. Is that possible?
I think there are a lot of people wanting to escape the dullness of a 8 to 5 life. How do we find it? On this blog I am hoping to find other people that would like to share their ideas of their dream jobs or a way to find work that is meaningful. I know there are a lot of people out of work right now that would be grateful for an income. I too would like to have money coming in however I have been finding that employers do not want to pay for experience. The salaries I am seeing look like entry level pay. Please I have worked too long, have experience, professionalism, and business successes that I want to be compensated for. Most important is I want to have something to look forward to when I wake up in the morning. I may be in fantasyland however I always heard “if you do what you love you will be happy”, “if you follow your passion the money will follow”.
I look forward to hearing from you and thanks for reading.
