Sink, Swim or Surf: Overcoming Adversity & Defying Expectations

Chat & Learn
Tue, Mar 23, 3:00 PM (EDT)

About this event

I found a career path which I loved, but how could I thrive with 2 special needs toddlers and no support system? The first step was the hardest: tuning out the negative voices and telling myself "you can do this because failure is not an option." The trick was taking things one day at a time so I wouldn't get overwhelmed by the sheer number of steps I had to take to get through the day. I don't know if I would have succeeded had I not been so passionate about Email Deliverability. While I often felt overwhelmed by the ongoing challenges in my life, I found satisfaction and a sense of control in a career path that enabled me to fix problems quickly. As I solved more problems for my clients, I gained strength and confidence, which helped me develop more skills to advocate for my children's needs. My sons are in their 20's now and one of them even worked for Salesforce for 2.5 years. I have a thriving career in Deliverability and every challenge I overcame has made me a better person.

In this chat, I want you to walk away with:

  • Actionable steps you can take to drown out negativity
  • The importance of keeping your eye on the prize
  • Choosing your battles wisely
