In theory, I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to NYC creative corporate life. The place was packed with entertaining fodder and smart people my age. As a young, capable person, I should have felt right at home. But I didn't. Working in advertising, print production specifically, was overwhelming to say the least, and I struggled to keep up.
My department was quiet and intense; most of my colleagues had been doing their job for decades and didn't have the time or patience to mentor someone who was just starting out. I also had trouble connecting with people my age, which may have partially been my fault. I felt awkward because I was floundering and everyone else seemed to know what they were doing.
I was surrounded by people, but I'd never felt more alone. There was a clear lack of empathy when I asked for help; very few of my colleagues were willing to let their guard down or be honest about their past mistakes. My errors were met with disgust or not communicated to me at all.
Early on, I retreated inward.
I felt invisible in the office and misunderstood, and my work was suffering. I became someone I'm not: shy, quiet, unhappy, and unproductive, afraid of making mistakes. I was visibly frustrated at work, flustered, and impatient. I stagnated. My performance reviews were terrible.
The next year, after 8 months with the agency, I was "let go" after a massive layoff over the holidays. I was told the role wasn't a good fit for me. I agreed. I don't blame anyone but myself for my stint in advertising not working out. It just wasn't my thing, and I couldn't keep down the Kool-Aid. The agency was huge and intimidating to me, but many employees were flourishing, or at least appeared to be. The company did offer many opportunities for industry education, but I was too defeated and nervous to attempt involvement.
While the agency was designed to foster creativity, collaboration, and young talent, I left feeling it did anything but for me, personally. I found the "walls up" culture of invulnerability uninviting and cold. I supposed I needed somewhere more welcoming that would allow me to exercise this "creativity" I thought I had, a role that could help me realize what I wanted to do and who I wanted to be professionally, even though both ideas were becoming more and more unclear to me every day. My next position was an office manager role for a luxury jewelry company, which I stayed in for over a year.
The people were warm and gracious, the pay was good for my experience level, and there was a loose promise of possibly moving onto the marketing team, which interested me at the time. The U. After a while, my attraction to the role started to wane and my productivity declined.
When the company transferred offices to a bigger, better location, my responsibilities changed almost overnight. I became unfulfilled and uninterested in the work I was doing. I quickly realized that I didn't have the interest or personality to be a true office manager or executive assistant in any field, not that I couldn't handle it, I just didn't want to. I knew I was moving further away from what I set out to do in New York City, and wanted to resist fixing myself in a role and industry that my heart wasn't in. I just had no idea what I actually wanted to do.
That's when I met Jody. I reached out to a niece of a family friend, who I'd met only once at a Thanksgiving dinner and had grown to admire.
I wrote her a Facebook message asking if she knew anyone in NYC I could meet with about a job or simply to talk to about their career path. Like a champ, she responded immediately and connected me with her friend, Jody Porowski, "she started Avelist! In my disheartened state, I didn't expect anything from the meeting other than to meet a new person and possibly connect with some people in her network.
What struck me about Jody was her openness. She didn't have any walls up and I could ask her anything. Jody was real and honest with me about her career journey and her experiences running a startup. We began the meeting talking about work and wound up brainstorming ideas for Avelist.
Though I'll be honest, my initial start was half-assed. I wasn't committed. I buried the problem by diving straight back into the world of digital marketing, a career which I already knew no longer served me. I've come to realise just how important love and kindness is in everything we do, and without it we suffocate our ability to be courageous and go after what we want.
In I was suddenly offered an opportunity to relocate with my husband to Denmark yes, through all my body bashing that fiance who traversed the world with me, stuck by me through the much more difficult terrain of my self discovery!! I took this as an opportunity to take back all that mental energy and throw it into a self development journey supported by a therapist, books, podcasts, retreats and meditation.
And I found the key. The way out of being a complete control freak.
