NYC is a total rat race! One that can often keep our heads down and in my case out of the blogosphere for a hot second! (Sorry all!) Last week was the mother of all busy weeks – but funny how brunch with friends and a few reminders about our badass city/job /lives really are to snap you back into a very thankful reality. So how did I get to such a place – let’s recap….
Monday – 10 A.M. – Breakfast eaten, morning meetings attended, to-do list made before 10. ß A laughable subject since the PR Gods find a well-organized day too easy.
Monday – 10:05 AM – As the Gods would have it – CURVEBALL!
Tuesday – 12 PM – At this point I have had 4 hours of sleep, 1.5 meals and created a “deck” that even Richard Edelman would bow down to. #girlboss
Wednesday – 2PM – Through a client review, and they loved it – phew! Today is showing promises of leaving before 8 and a workout – no more sockbuns!
Thursday – Wait there was a Thursday?
Friday – 3:45 AM out of bed – 4AM car, 5AM media day… oh hey there GMA, Today and Fox and Friends.
Saturday – Someone hand me a mimosa…
Now while my week showed signs of impending exhaustion, it didn’t matter. I was checking things off left and right from my #PRBucketlist. New York is a rat race – and it’s just that time in our lives for small paychecks, minor breakdowns and if you work hard enough big breaks and at the end of the day it’s up to us to shape what that looks like.
So it got me thinking what’s on my professional bucket list? Those tangible dreams that are my daily reminders of why I get up in the morning put a brush through my mane and channel my inner Sophia Amoruso –
Now here’s the funny thing about this list – you don’t have to be a PR Girl! Any profession – go for it! Thanks to rules adopted from Mackenzie’s 101 in 1001 you make your own – each time you check one off – document it, date it and keep going! So are you ready to be a #girlboss?
Join me – Leave your name and a link to your twitter/Instagram – After all we’re in this together – (hence #25)! Right?
