“It’s time for you to be the #GIRLBOSS of yourself!”

9:09 AM

Today I had a meeting with a friend. Work-related meeting. In short, she offered me a couple of jobs to handle brand’s social media. Well, I haven’t shared with you what I do for a living, although I’m planning on writing a full story on that. Separately, soon. For now, let’s just say that I’m a content creator and social media specialist. I work alone but currently I manage at least 3 social media (Instagram) and 2 websites.

She, my friend, offered me a job to handle more Instagrams and websites. My ‘living-in-a-comfort-zone’ self would say, “Nah, I’m okay. My plate is already full and I’m comfortable with the money I’m making now.” Sometimes I hate how greedy my self-subconscious sounds.

But something triggered me.

It’s been a year since I live in a comfort zone. Working from home, making money three times bigger than what I made from working full-time 5 days, from 9 to 6. I wake up at noon and sleep at midnight. I go date on weekdays. I’m enjoying the time of my life. I do what everyone's dreaming about; making a career from the comfort of my bedroom.

But is this what I’m gonna do for the next 5 years?"

"I think it’s time for you to be the #girlboss of yourself," said my friend. And I was like, damn right she got a point.

If I shall break down what she said, it downs to this: I’ve been doing this social media thing for 3 years now. I work alone, I go to meetings, I deal with clients, I produce content, write, edit, snap, shoot, upload, the cycle goes on and on, and two or three years later, I become the robot. Not that it's a bad thing. And not to say that it became less interesting. I love doing it! It’s my passion. But I think there’s more to it.

The business is growing. The demand to manage digital platforms is high. If I want to be in it for a long run, I need to step up my game. So I’m planning to hire a team. Not big, probably a team of two. Three, tops. My dream team is gonna be filled with people who are creative, passionate in creating, social media savvy, and most importantly, share the same value as me.

I wanna grow with people who know what they want. I wanna grow with people who are fearless, and a doer. I wanna step up the game, and push my self to see what I'm capable of. Hopefully it can be realized not longer than the end of the month.

That’s some thoughts I got today. Ahh, isn’t it lovely to have friends who have your best interest at heart? Who want you to grow and be a better self? I hope you got that kind of friends too!

Till next time!
