I’ve built teams, launched new products, been promoted multiple times, and created my own jobs. But it hasn’t always been fun or easy.
I felt anxious all the time because there was so much to do. I would dread going to work in the morning but felt stuck and trapped in the golden handcuffs. I was sick of watching my amazing coworkers leave the company completely exhausted and full of self-doubt and knew I was heading in that same direction.
That’s when I hired a coach and everything changed. Learning how to feel empowered using logical tools made all the difference. Turns out there was nothing wrong with me. I just hadn’t learned how to manage the emotional side of my career.
