How would you feel if you started working in a company that accepted you with a yawn? Like when you are excited to start and to make an impact with your efforts and no one seems to really care.
How would you feel working in a company with a culture that undervalues, underappreciated, and underrecognizes people like you?
If this resonates, then listen up and listen good!
This week’s episode features a fellow powerhouse, Gina McCarthy, a resilient soul with a High Achievers mindset with the same badass culture. A crucial career pivot led her to move past her own “unders” that were stirring the dark waters that would lead to burnout - and increased her salary by more than 35% in the process!
Take Inspiration from how Gina took back her own power by:
- Accepting, loving, and being damn proud of herself
- Choosing to receive and process outside criticism and comments as either positive, irrelevant, or just simply untrue
- Allowing herself to feel motivated and inspired again by what she’s doing
- Avoiding the need to give loyalty to people who don’t reciprocate it
- Finding her people that would check her a** when she’s being “swallowed up” at work
