We know it may sound cliche, but everyone has taken a different path to get to where they are. We also know most of those paths were not linear and may have involved some hills and zigzags. No matter the road it took to get you to where you are, we’re so glad you’re there, and we want to help you share your journey
Stories like yours encourage us to see new possibilities! Everyone needs a starting point, a treasure map, to help inspire them to take the next step in their journey—your story could be that!
We are building a career library to showcase the different paths people took to get to where they are. Whether you are a business owner, a freelancer, full-time, part-time–and everything in between–we’d love your help. You never know who your story will impact or who may impact yours!
There are many ways to tell a story, and we want you to share yours in the format you are most comfortable with—be it audio, written, infographic/graphics, video, or something else!
