The People's Playlist: Vo. 22 - I Love New York
Happy Monday, party people!
It's not your typical dreadful Monday; nope, it's a holiday week! Which means short week, BBQs, warm weather, pools, etc. etc. etc. I mean, who can dread THIS Monday?!
I'm extra giddy about the start of this week, mainly because it's the start of an exciting new chapter!
By now, you should've heard me tell the story of how I quit my job in 2015. I knew my time there was up, and I was ready to take the leap and try something new. That "something new" was Leap Innovative Group, my digital marketing and brand development agency that turned 2 this past February. It's been a hell of a journey, and I'm continually blessed to be able to have the opportunities available to me today.
Well, 3 years after quitting my dream job, my old boss called me and asked to hire Leap Innovative Group. You heard that right...my old job, one of the largest non-profits in the world, is now my client! Full circle moment right there, and I couldn't thank God enough for this blessing.
Today marks the start of my journey with Girl Scouts. I'll be here in NYC the entire week, getting caught up on everything that's changed, getting reacquainted with my old teammates, and meeting the newer folks. Ultimately, I'm adjusting into my old boss' role while she's out on maternity leave. I couldn't be more thankful, more excited, more humbled, and more ready to walk in this newfound authority God has granted me with.
But okay...the music!
Since I'm back on my old stomping grounds, I'll be listening to the many songs that got me through my time here in NYC. Most of them are albums (Beyonce's '4', Drake's 'Take Care', Beyonce's 'Self-Titled', and a few others), and I'll be adding songs throughout the week as my old favorites pop in my head, which I'm certain they will.
