Follow Your Arrow
Kacey Musgraves – October 2013
Say what you think, Love who you love
‘Cause you just get So many trips ’round the sun
Yeah, you only Only live once
So make lots of noise
Kiss lots of boys
Or kiss lots of girls
If that’s what you’re into
When the straight and narrow
Gets a little too straight
Roll up a joint, I would
And follow your arrow
Wherever it points, yeah
Follow your arrow
Wherever it points
Following My Arrow
In November 2013 – I had been in San Francisco 3 years. Moved to SF to get a job.
I had been a loan officer when the mortgage industry crashed. I had started a Weekly Newspaper, Coffee News, but it failed due to the economy.
I had taken a job in a high end grocery store bakery. I worked my way up to Bakery Manager of a large store. 3 weeks later I was offered a job in SF making 5X what I was making doing what I had left before I became a loan officer.
After 3 years, I realized I wasn’t enjoying what I was doing. I loved the company. I just wasn’t happy doing what I was doing.
When I thought back on my last 10 years, I realized I had been happiest when I When I worked my own business, Coffee News and was able to work with businesses marketing their business, selling ads, networking in community groups, Chambers of Commerce and BNI.
I wanted back into marketing, networking, and working within the community.
Toastmasters had started at FRB, so I joined, so I could meet more people at FRB and get out into “the FRB Community”. I started Marketing Classes at UC Berkeley Extension.Then I took Social Media Marketing Strategy by Michael Brito.
A Passion was ignited. An old flame was re-kindled.
Have you ever had that moment hit you? That A HA Moment? That moment when . . . .
My favorite Quote is from Mark Twain:
The two greatest days in your life are the days you are born and the day you find out why. ~Mark Twain
When that moment hit me, I sat down awestruck! I knew that my why was to teach, mentor, speak, share, network, to get back into building and helping the Community and the members of the community grow and achieve their goals.
The two greatest days in your life are the days you are born and the day you find out why. ~Mark Twain Click To Tweet
Shortly after that Ah Ha moment, I heard Kacey Musgraves sing Follow Your Arrow.
I decided I needed To Follow My Arrow, Wherever it Pointed!
It became my theme song. I have it pop up on my Reminder every Morning.
I started podcasting, blogging, growing my twitter following, with the ultimate Goal to follow my arrow and get into a position that would allow me to do my passion.
I was having a fun again, enjoying what I was doing. I stay up late, get up early, work on these things on weekends, doing what I love.
I kept thinking about my passion and trying to learn the things that would give me the skills to start my own social media business or go to work as a community manager for a someone.
But my work was wearing on me. I got a call to interview with a company doing the same thing I was doing at FRB, but with control over the team and the application.
I didn’t really want to move to Spartanburg, SC., or do the same thing and then an opening for the Internal Community Manager opened up at FRB.
I Never expected to get the position at FRB. I interviewed. I had passion. I had desire.
I was offered both positions at the same time!
What Would You Do?
A full-time job doing what I was not happy doing now, for a company I don’t know and working with people I don’t know.
The Internal Community Manger position at a company I liked working for, with people I liked hanging around with, and doing what I am passionate about.Follow Your Arrow, Wherever It Points. ~ Kacey Musgraves Click To Tweet
I Followed My Arrow!
It was pointing where I aimed it.
