In the spirit of getting to know each other a bit better (and starting the work week with a little positivity_… What’s the best/your favorite part of your job? I was thinking about the best parts of my job (more on that below) but would love to hear what do you do for a living… and what is your favorite thing about that?
The best part of my job…
Honestly, there are a lot of things!
Just out of practicality, the number one best thing is the flexibility.
I love being able to do my job on my own time. So I can work out mid-day, run errands when it’s least crowded, etc. I am a night person and some nights I am up really late working (I don’t mind, I’m a night owl and it’s when I feel my most creative) and others I will take a random half day. Last week we took part of the day off to go to the Van Gogh experience and I never would have been able to do that.
I am an introvert and also easily overstimulated so I really value being able to work at home in a quiet space. Along those lines, the control over my schedule. I found that the higher I got as I climbed the rungs at my old day jobs, the more meetings I was required to attend. I like being able to pick and choose what I go to, as I’d rather be at my desk writing or creating other content. And I have someone managing my partnerships so I am rarely on the phone with brands unless it is to discuss the creative elements of a partnership. I really value that. I didn’t really think about this until my boyfriend and I got together: he is always on the phone for work. Back to back calls and zooms.
The Facebook group, especially. Some times I will be having a bad day or get a terrible DM and then I will go onto the Facebook group and see the conversations happening and just feel so happy. It (you) is such an incredible group of women and I feel lucky to be your ringleader.
Tell me yours in the comments!
