Since I have accepted my new role at Bumble as the community marketing manager of STL, my head has been swirling with ideas on how to effectively serve women in the St. Louis area. I can't tell you how excited I am to show up for people in real life and deliver some positive impact filled experiences! As a former educator, this is what I have been trained to do, and I couldn't be happier to step back into a space of serving people.
My first goal is to feature St. Louis women on the blog and on IG as my Bumble features for the month. I want to showcase women who are doing amazing work, that should be recognized, and that would offer others with inspiration and the strength to pursue their own soulful aspirations. I love a good story, a story that makes me feel warm, that makes me see all the good that exists in the world. I can't stand the news, as it's filled with stories of violence, disappointment, and pain. So, anyways, my hope is to share the positive, and to work on the imbalance of negative messages that we are continuously given.
My second goal is to pour into women who want advice, support, and encouragement on how to step more into their calling. In the past month, I have provided 4 women with consultations on their digital businesses, and it happened without me even offering. All four of these women reached out to me, and asked for time that I could invest in evaluating their brand, their goals, and ultimately give them advice on how to effectively propel forward. I love doing this type of work! I want to see other women succeed, I want to be their cheerleaders, I want to see women develop themselves into the women that they envision. It's a beautiful blessing to be able to be a part of that journey, and I guess it goes back to my love for education and helping others.
My third goal is related to the little girl that I was blessed to bring into this world. She is my mini-me and even though I want to take on the world and serve everyone else, at the end of the day, I want to make sure that I am serving her to the best of my ability. One of the main reasons I decided to leave my school district leadership role was because I wanted to be more flexible and offer more time for my daughter. I want to be able to attend all of her school events, come into her classroom and read books, pick her up on time and not have to make her go to after care, take her to all of her additional extra-curricular activities, and not miss a thing! She is growing up so fast and in this journey, I want her to have vivid memories of me being right next to her, serving her in the best and biggest way.
Thank you for stopping by to read this blog post! I hope it served you with light, creativity, and love.
