Monday Motivation: Career Links and Navigating a Personal Crisis at Work
Good morning! A quick note to say that my newsletter is going out today where I am sharing the one thing I did a year ago that has changed my life! I am also sharing my exact morning routine. If you hate your mornings and are always rushed out to work, you don’t want to miss today’s newsletter. You can sign up on this link. You also get a free ebook when you sign up about conquering your networking barriers and expanding your network!
Also, last week I guest posted over at the Daily Muse about navigating a personal crisis at work. You can read the post here. The post means a lot to me because I basically share everything with you that has been going on with me over the last year. Normally, I am that reliable co-worker you can always count on—the one who never calls in sick. But that all changed a year ago, with a first trimester miscarriage, the loss of my aunt who I was extremely close to, and another miscarriage where I had to have surgery.
This rollercoaster of unfortunate events could have knocked me down, made me not want to get out of bed, and affected my performance at work. But instead, I chose to stay positive and do everything I could to keep going, especially at the office.
I hope that you will never have to deal with a personal crisis, but if you do, you can read on the post here the three things that helped me move from my bed to my desk—and get the best assessment ratings that I’ve ever received at work.
