Covid and Job Opportunities

It seems life is funny. I got offered an Executive Director position for a not for profit organization up in Edmonton. There are a lot of things the organization can do to grow. It definitely needed newer and fresher ideas. I turned down the gig.

I got another call to become an Executive Director for a smaller not for profit in Calgary. It also wasn’t quite a fit.

I also turned down a director position to run programs and services. This time this one is in Ontario. While the salary was a better match, Toronto isn’t quite where I want to go.

I decided that during this time, I should focus on my studies and what I truly want. It seems the gigs I get, start to become shorter and shorter. I am made for contract work. I like it. You’re in. You’re out. You got the job done and done well.

Finances, I think will always be there for me. It’s a place where you can grow and learn and get a crap ton of tax write offs. It pays to be your own boss. 🙂

What life holds for me, who knows. But I do know, getting my MBA done has always been a goal for me since I was 20! Time to get her done.

I also can’t help but reflect, am I dreaming too little? One of my biggest goals was to become CEO by 30. And if I had taken any of these jobs, I would have hit my goal.

This year, my word is reflection. Reflecting on who I am, who I want to be, what I want, and where I want to go. Reflection.

What’s yours?
