My Digital Marketing Journey

Why I chose a path to digital marketing

creative view

Pursuing a career in digital marketing was not something I ever thought I would do. I do not consider myself the most techy individual. I always wanted a career that would allow me to give back to my community and make a difference in this world. I was not sure exactly what that would entail. I never considered myself as someone that possessed many talents so I figured going to college would allow me to find something I can love and make a career out of that. I chose to get in the filed of social work and ended up getting my masters degree. I was excited to start making a difference and making a great impact as I had originally intended. While in this field I was able to provide help and guidance to individuals in need, ultimately; however, I was unfortunately left with the feeling of burnout.

It wasn’t until I had my second child that I realized I needed a change. I needed more flexibility in my life, a better work life balance. It was then that I decided to shift gears and look into something that would be able to accommodate my busy lifestyle. In my search to a new career path, I discovered this wonderful world of digital marketing. As learned more about that a digital marketer was and what they do, I began to realize that this world aligned with who I am and what skills I enjoy and possess:

  • Creative
  • Organized
  • Fast learner
  • Solution based
  • Good Listener
  • Intuitive
  • Eagerness to learn and grow professionally
  • And yes I am in fact more techy than I realized!

Not only am I enjoying learning more about the digital marketing world, It will allow me to find that flexibility and work life balance that I longed for. While I know it will not be an easy journey, I am willing to put in the hard work and dedication needed to continue on this path in the hopes that I am able to share my creative side with the world.
