In It Together: My Career Panel with Linkedin, J.Crew & WeWork

Last month, I participated in the #StyleYourSuccess career panel event with J.Crew, LinkedIn and WeWork, and it was all about what it means to be a modern-day entrepreneur in today’s fast-paced, ever-changing world.

Online professional network, LinkedIn, has recently launched their #InItTogether campaign that speaks to the fact that while we are all pursuing our own individual career goals… at the end of the day, we really are all in it together, and it’s the connections we make that will ultimately help us to succeed.

One of the most common questions that I always get from my readers is how I balance my blog with my full-time job, and even though it’s not an easy thing for me to do every day… somehow I’ve managed to make it work, and I don’t see things changing in the near future (but never say never, right?).

As career women, we’re all balancing multiple things at the same time – whether it’s raising kids, launching a side business, furthering our education, or just kicking butt and breaking the glass ceiling!

I’m a huge proponent for women building each other up, and that’s one of the things that I hope to use my platform to do, by connecting with readers like you and providing inspiration and aspirational lifestyle content.

Keep reading to check out my top 3 takeaways from the panel session!

  1. The most successful businesses prioritize their focus on creating value for customers and helping them solve a problem – not growing popularity, social media followers, and fans
  2. Pursue your passion… but do it strategically. Failure to plan only ever means that you’re planning to fail
  3. You’ll always know that you’re on the right path when you’re doing what you love. Spending 40 hours at work every week means that at least one-third of your waking hours are spent on the job! If your current career situation doesn’t make you happy, create an actionable plan to make some changes STAT. Your happiness and well-being depend on it!

LinkedIn recently found that the majority of professionals (87%) say success isn’t just about what you accomplish in your life, it’s about what you inspire others to do. No matter what your journey is, let’s all commit to building each other up along the way.

The #StyleYourSuccess event series has been taking place across several cities around the U.S. over the past few weeks, and it was really such an honor to be selected to speak at the Atlanta event! Join the conversation on Linkedin using the #StyleYourSuccess and #InItTogether hashtags, and check out Linkedin’s recent report all about the topic of success HERE.
