I knew I had to reinvent myself in my career and that was difficult because it was my dream, but I knew I had to put on my big-girl pants and move on.

I like to say “I put my hand in the fire.” No matter how terrified I am I try new things and I accept that I’ll fail sometimes, especially when it comes to my career. And I don’t stop when I do.

A wise friend of mine said, “Walk a different way to work every day. Eat at a different restaurant. You’ll meet new people and it will get you out of your routine.” I think that strategy definitely works when you’re trying to reset your career and your life.
