It’s a time of deep transformation. And it’s an interesting place to be. For my whole life, each time I made a career change I knew exactly what I wanted to do next. Not this time. Today I along with the coaches and staff at TeamWILD Athletics have decided to officially close TeamWILD. I will no longer be the Director.
Which means I get to figure out what to do with the rest of my life, starting now!! It’s both exciting and terrifying! I’ve had a few nights of not sleeping very well. And I’m considering a conversation with a career coach and maybe a psychic! But I’m excited too. I have loved running TeamWILD. It was a dear and deep dream of mine to first learn as much as I did about endurance athletics and how to manage diabetes and nutrition to be a successful athlete, and then to bring this information to the general diabetes community. We did this for five years. And it was a beautiful journey. And now it’s time to move on. I really don’t like running the day to day operations of a business. And it turns out I’m not very good at. Funny how just because one has leadership skills, it doesn’t mean you SHOULD lead a small company!
What I know about my future is that I have one. I have a lot of skills. I was an executive coach for more than 15 years, I can do more of that. I was in education for more than 20 years, I can explore that too. I also have discovered I love speaking and inspiring, and once I get this book published (the one I’ve already started writing) I will have something to launch a speaking career from! So, there’s things I will be able to do. That’s a given. Funny how that works.
Thank you everyone for your love and your support. It means the world to me!
And if you have ideas for my new career, please do let me know! I’d love to hear from you.
