I dream of changing the world. I have challenged myself to live both fearlessly and deliberately in 2012, and I hope that I can realize my dreams as I aid others in finding theirs. For 24 hours now I have have a cut and paste copy of my CV on here, but that tells you nothing of who I am. Thus it is now deleted and if you wish a copy just ask I'm not shy. A CV only shows you names, dates, and generic information. It doesn't show you why I changed my path. It doesn't show you why I am changing it again. In 2009, I was working for a large EOM company and they were awarded a giant government contract. They basically became war profiteers before my very eyes. So, I left. My lifestyle hasn't been the same since, but my life has been fulfilling. Not only that but I decided to move 2000 miles away! I wanted to experience life outside of the south. The drive was an amazing adventure that I would like to repeat again. It ambled on for three weeks during the peak of fall foliage. It was lovely. I ended up with a grant based medical group in upstate New York that still wasn't a great fit as the economy began to tank. NYS in their ever present wisdom cancelled grants and payments and I got laid off. Yay! Two jobs in under a year...I look like a winner! Not. So...I fell prey to a weak economy. I looked around at the prospects in New York; and unless I could afford to live in Brooklyn or Manhatten there was no chance of actually working a full-time job. The job related news spoke of excellent opportunities in Austin and Houston. I thought...hmmm...I could move back home. So I did! Alas...I have been looking for a job for a year and a month. I am working, but it is not what I would like to do and no one wants to touch me because of the job longevity. What's a girl to do? I am going to continue to show up to my little job, while submitting my resume to every job out there...if you are looking for a person with experience in accounts payable, procurement, logistics...I am your girl. That will still only be a job to pay the bills. I am not sure how to get the job that I would like. I love people. I love organizing events. I love writing. I am only self published on my little blog, but people read my little blog. I have Klout. :) I smile because I have no idea what that means or what sort of algorithm they use. I love ideas. I am an idea person. Give me a problem and I will do the research to find the solution. I loved that about logistics. The challenge of someone telling me WHERE they would like to export a product to and me FINDING a way to get it there. Not just that but the cost comparisons and the interpersonal relationships that form between all parties. So much is accomplished simply by treating others well. There is much to be said for a client lunch or a taking the time to stay on a phone call and hear them out. I would like to speak and write and help change the world. I am great at everything. I am intelligent, but don't have a degree. I would like a chance to succeed at my passion. I would like to see if someone out there is willing to give me the chance to see what I can do and where I can go.

Upon realizing that we are each responsible for one another, begin to improve the circumstance of anyone you can. Share information, resources, and open yourself up to the possibility that you can do more than you realize. We have all heard the Ghandi quote, "Be the change you want to see in the world." Do it, be it, change not only your stars, but maybe someone elses. Start small in your own family or neighborhood, feed a friend that is hungry. If you see a bigger need start a food bank. If you recognize a space that needs change don't wait for someone else to do it, find the tools to do it yourself. Amazing things happen when we simply respond to need. Often we send people to government agencies and social services when if we tried just a little harder we could give them a hand up in life. I do not believe in hand outs, but I do believe that sometimes people just need the help. We are such a small dot on in the sands of time, we should use that time to make the world better for all.
Anything you want. I am open to the sharing of all ideas.
anything I put my mind to from creating the idea to the realization of it.
I don't have one yet, but I am hoping that this will change in 2012.
