“Coming to the beach?” Two words I have never used during a work day (…unfortunately). But there are some lucky ladies that call the beach their office and the sun their desk lamp running their career to its light.
As part of the article series about career women who inspire me, this week I decided to host an impressive woman who made the sea in to a glorious career. A real champion with awards (!!!) – Attorney Vered Bouskila, former Olympic sailor and vice president of business development and project management at the Israeli Olympic Committee.
The rumors are that the Israeli fashion industry is a closed, competitive and alienated field.
"It's all personal!" A colleague once told me during a professional debate we had. Despite the rumors, I decided to avoid prejudices and stick to the good. I was convinced that I would meet good people along the way … Evidently, optimism is the name of the game.
One of the first women to blossom, and that was happy to cooperate with me, was fashion designer Einav Zucker, who owns the fashion brand named – Zucker. My blog was only a few months old (between you and me, there was a time when my mom and her friends were my only followers), but Einav didn’t set conditions or ask any questions. She smiled politely and invited me to her charming studio. Today, two years later, I decided to give this talented designer a place of honor in my Career Women's Club, which is a source of inspiration for me.
Good morning to all the dreamers!
Yes, Yes… you out there. You with the amazing ideas that wake up every morning, waiting for happiness, but life doesn’t have any room in the calendar for it.
So there are reasons, excuses, detailed explanations, but between us – Why not now?
Are you moving uncomfortably in your seat right now? GOOD! But before everything, it should be made clear – There is no need for sharp movements, embarking on financial adventures or quitting your job, god forbid. You can try, taste, test and make decisions later. By the way, after the decision has been made, it’s advised to ask questions. To check whether the path you have chosen leads you to the place you were aiming for, or whether it’s appropriate to examine a change of course.
In the passing year, I’ve swapped the traditional office with the home office. The contracts and agreements have now become articles and photoshoots and even my clients are no longer investors and traders. Well… ok… except for one – Yael Glazer.
A dreamy brown eyed kid from the Kibbutz who teaches people how to make money on some of the world’s leading e-commerce sites – Ebay and Amazon, to say the least!
From the day I decided to let the comfort zone go and turn to a new profession I got a lot of support and encouragement from those around me. But the word that kept repeating itself was "courage".
But if you thought I was brave, wait till you to meet Limor Zohar Shavit! A member of the career women secret club that is a great source of inspiration to me.
