There comes a time in peoples lives when change is inevitable. There are different situations that call for change. Sometimes we cannot control these things but other times we can create these changes. I have worked for various employers through out my working career. I have done fast food, small package logistic, and worked for one of the largest oil companies in the world. Each time I have moved on I looked for a change. I needed something that I did not hate doing.
The work was fine the pay was alright and I put everything I had into those working positions. I always seemed to want something more, something more worth while. Then about 2 years ago I was given the opportunity to get in to the Finance Industry. I took the courses to get my Canadian Investment Funds Course (CIFC). I also studied to become Life Licensed.
I spent the first year in my new profession learning about sales. I knew what I was getting myself into. I just didn't realize how much harder it was to break into this industry. I learned a lot about myself during this time. I had bouts of anxiety and depression that I had to control even during client meetings. I had no previous sales experience nor had experience in owning my own business.
Here I am now, typing away on this blog. It has been nearly a year since I left that industry and nearly four years away from oil and gas. I find myself working in audio and visual. I own my own business and get hired through out the city by different Audio/Visual Firms. Will this be the place where I can work and do what I love? Time will tell. Only by moving forward I will find my answer.
Crap... It's 4:58 AM already. Its time to lay my weary head. I hope you all have a wonderful day.
