Hi, I'm Liz

I'm a midwestern girl who lives in Iowa with my amazing husband, Tim and our incredible son Theodore.  I love to cook, entertain family and friends, visit unknown travel destinations, and enjoy the occasional martini.

Starting over is the bravest kind of starting there is. 

 

So, I’ve come to the realization that I need to start looking for a new job (thanks to some prodding from my loving husband).  I have to say, I hate the whole process.  I’m not sure what it is.  Realizing that I have to leave this job that I really love, that’s comfortable and easy and familiar.  A job that I’m good at.  A place where I go to each day and feel challenged, a place where I feel valued and part of a team.

It could be that I’m terrified that I won’t find a job that fits as good as the one I described above – so I just block the process of looking deep deep down and just hope that it all works out.  Or, it’s none of the above and I’m just lazy and hate the energy and work that goes into finding a job… that could be it, too…

 

But seriously, why should I be scared of this?  When I look at my career up to this point, I’ve been blessed to have gotten the jobs I’ve gotten.  I’ve loved every single one.  Each one has brought new skills and challenges.  I’ve met amazing people along the way.  And I’ve always been pleasantly surprised with where I’ve ended up.

 

I believe that starting over is one of the bravest things we can do.  You have to believe that there is something better out there.  You have to have faith that the experiences you’ve had up to this point will lead you to the next best thing.

 

I don’t know what my next career move will be.  All I know is that I will most likely be pleasantly surprised.  And I’m glad I have an amazing husband who pushes me to be the best I can be.  And doesn’t mind helping me with this horrible process I call, “Finding a Job”.
