When Magic Finds You
The universe has a funny way of showing you where you need to be, and sometimes how you get there might be unconventional and typically consists of twists, turns and yes, heartbreak and pain.
Amidst the hustle and bustle of working part-time, full-time and in between, I always had the ultimate goal of going back to work for The Walt Disney Company in some capacity, and relocating to my home of Southern California.
The funny thing is, I'm not sure if that is one of my immediate goals anymore. Or is it? I think that will happen eventually, but right now I am focusing on what is at hand – my family, finishing my MBA & business. I will always dream of moving back to LA, but the timing is not right for a few reasons, main one being the cost of living and having a large family with kids that are happy and content at their schools. While they would be excited to move to LA, because they love it so much, the logistics just have not fallen in place or made sense, yet.
Know what? That's ok.
Goals can and often will change, but you must keep moving forward.
Have you had one of those moments when you feel like what you were meant to do has always been there... always lurked, and eventually when you were fully, totally open to it (sometimes subconsciously) you allow it to find you?
Well, I have found my magic. It was always within me. My favorite thing? Helping others to find their magic, too. This past year I have been employed in a Human Resources department at a community college. I've learned a lot on public and education policy & procedure, regulations and laws pertaining to employee relations, labor and more. I've had the opportunity to work with some amazing employees, consultants, managers and executive administrators. I'd like to think that many of them will remain in contact as I move on to this – my next venture, Elli Mac.
Sometimes your career finds you. That is the magic. For me, it has been following me my whole life. Every adventure, endeavor, educational journey, and connection has led me to this moment. My work experience in various industries and life experiences have culminated to me becoming the best version of myself, and it is SO FREAKING EXCITING to finally feel like I am free to do exactly what I was created to do.
So. How can I help you find your magic? By listening, researching and giving you valuable insight and outside perspective. Whether I help you with your brand conception, work with you on special training and development, or assist with your business through my professional services, I can guarantee that we will have an amazing time and you will be empowered to embrace WHO you truly are, and learn how to hone in on your strengths that ultimately affect your personal and business life.
My current dream? That every person that I work with, or every organization that calls up on my services, experiences the sheer joy and pure magic of knowing that they, too, are on the right path and that the world benefits from all that they have to offer.
Thank you for joining me on this journey, and I look forward to serving you!
