What keeps you up at night? For me, it was the question, “am I doing what I love to do?” After almost 20 years in Corporate America, I decided to step back from my desk life and follow my passions.
Early in my career, I had a boss ask me if I wanted to be known for the cookies I baked or the work I did. At the time, I told her what she wanted to hear. Now it’s time to say what I thought years ago. Know me for my cookies!
Those of you who are staring at your ceiling at night wondering if you are in the right job, ask yourself what are you really passionate about? If it’s not your job, find out what it is…and do that!
I have been competing with my baked goods for over 17 years at the MN State Fair. This move takes me to the next level where the judges don’t just give me feedback on a score sheet and award me a ribbon. The judges are now my customers.
