The search is over!
I spent the last week pouring over a billion of the most wonderful applications, resumes and portfolios. I’m a.m.a.z.e.d by how many talented, beautiful, CREATIVE and connected people there are out there! I wish I could hire each and every one of you. Sincerely.
When you post something like my ad, it feels a little reminiscent of throwing a big high school party; you can’t help but be TERRIFIED that no one will show up! When I wrote that ad, I took a real leap. It’s not your typical job posting. Not by any stretch of the imagination. And it was scary. I was afraid people wouldn’t take me seriously or worse, that they’d laugh at me behind my back. But in the end, I didn’t care. I was all in, committed to finding what I need, because I think that I (not to mention my business and my family) deserve it. I hoped that if I was willing to share EXACTLY what I was hoping for, that somehow it would show up at my doorstep. And guess what? It totally did.
Please know, I am significantly touched and astonished by the number of applications I received. It was truly humbling. In fact, as the applications kept pouring in, I started to have this overwhelming fear that I wasn’t up for this! I wasn’t going to be able to choose, or WORSE I’d make the WRONG decision somehow and have to fire someone a few months down the road! That would be my WORST.NIGHTMARE.EVER. I don’t ever want to have to fire anybody.
I also want you to know that many of your applications literally moved me to tears. So many answered my ad in kind and simply laid it all out there; to you I say, I could FEEL your hearts, your drive, your commitment, your intense desire to make BIG things happen in your lives. I want that for you too. Keep laying it all out there with this much authenticity, and you won’t be able to avoid falling into the perfect situation for you, no matter how hard you try!
I’ll be making the official announcement and introducing “the new girl” soon. :)
