We hear of career changes all the time. Ellen Degeneres was a paralegal before she was a daytime talk show host. Julia Child was a spy for the CIA before she became a culinary genius.
We all have our reasons to leave one profession for another. Our guest Annie Spano’s reason to leave was a more personal reason. Annie hopped from job to job, moving from high school math teacher to a project coordinator in a big corporate business.
However, as she started to grow in the position and in her education, she started recognizing a ‘work bully’ situation in the office.
She then left and created ‘Style Collective’, a community to collaborate and empower other women to grow their fashion blogs. Annie connects with people through sharing this story, a story of learning from a personal hardship and growing from the experience.
(8:40) “Your past doesn’t define who you are. You can write your own story, you can start over. I have started over many times. This is my third career now, and I am in my early thirties -- and you know the ‘work bully’. If had listened to everything that she had told me and let that bug in my ear bring me down, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do today.” --Annie Spano
(12:40) “I wanted so bad to be a leader in the position I was working in and I was not able to do that. My love for leadership and inspiring others and empowering them, showing them my hustle so they hustle. It empowers them and inspires them to help other woman in the community” --Annie Spano
(14:56) “Post constantly, being engaging, providing helpful content, celebrating our members on social media and on our website and on our emails and being inspirational. Really showing that as an organization we care about our members”-- Annie Spano
