Instant Momentum

Posted February 16, 2012 by Marcy Twete in On the Ladder
Momentum is an incredible thing. And even more incredible when you didn’t realize it was coming. Pursuing Career Girl Network full time has been a dream of mine for years. And after completing my last day at my full time job on Monday, let me tell you, the momentum is phenomenal. It’s as if the Universe said, “Alright, you asked for it, you got it.” Everything I’ve said over the past three years about my dreams for this business, my writing – it’s all coming together with frightening synchronicity. People I shouldn’t be running into, I am, and they’re giving me amazing insight. Individuals I’ve meant to contact are calling me and saying, “How can I help?”

Leaving one situation, and moving into another, has provided momentum in this journey I am so thankful for and graciously holding on to. I just want to be sure it keeps going. I know I’ll encounter obstacles and naysayers along the way, but it has been fantastic that in these first few days, I haven’t. All I’ve felt is love, support, and excitement for my choices, and readiness for the opportunities I’m going to create – not just for me, but for all women and girls.

    How did your company take you leaving?

    Truthfully, the response was mixed. My direct boss and boss' boss were incredibly supportive and happy for me as they know I'm truly pursuing my mission. Some coworkers were supportive, but many just basically shut me out. I think anytime you leave a company, you're going to get the cold shoulder from some and a "good luck" from others. That was definitely the case for me.
