TPM 052 : Land a Career in Your Field WHILE Building an Incredible Network, with Danelle Gagliardi
A Powerful Mindset: One in which you be yourself, open minded, and confident in your uniqueness
This week features Danelle Gagliardi, doing big things in the field of Law. In this episode, among other things, we talk about How to Get Your Dream Job while connecting with influencers in your field!
When I was graduating, there was a lot of talk about how “the economy wasn’t good” or that there weren’t any good jobs, or that companies simply weren’t hiring.
There have definitely been situations where that may have been the case, and we’ve heard from many people who’ve side-stepped the system to create vehicles to generate their own wealth. However, there are definitely other ways. One thing I truly believe is that the skills and traits that make a good entrepreneur, also enable you to excel in the workplace. Utilizing those traits, those skills, and that mindset, can be the difference between working your dream job that you absolutely love, and working for minimum wage and feeling stuck.
Danelle’s career path wasn’t necessarily the most direct, but in hearing her share her journey, you can hear the tenets echoed by others who pursue and accomplished their goals. The lessons are often the same, and can carry us to many destinations.
I found her commitment to authenticity, being true to yourself, quite inspiring. In the entrepreneur space, you hear it a lot. “Be yourself,” “Do what inspires you.” but when it comes to the workplace, I feel like there’s this idea that we need to conform to the organization. By extension, some might take it as “don’t be yourself, be what they want.”
Be true to yourself, always. You’ll not only be happier in work, but happier in life as well.
