Decisions and choices - how do you know if you’re making the right one or the wrong one?
I’m a person who trusts my gut instincts and brain. My brain works to formulate educated guess into a Pro and Con List, while my gut influences decisions to minimize regrets in my life.
Starting Global Girl Gang was not easy. I had just moved to a new city, was reunited with my husband (after living apart for a year), was no longer studying all the time, and had started a new job. I didn’t have a background in nonprofits, but when women started reaching out saying they wanted this to become a reality, I reached out to @astronauttia
for advice and tips
We worked together to brainstorm and go through our Pro & Con list of what services and support we wanted this Girl Gang to offer
Since then, we’ve grown to having 24 amazing and talented women from across the globe
These extraordinary women are Contributors, Directors or Officers who volunteer 3-15 hours a week towards this cause
They follow their passion and work in fields that are known to them or push themselves to learn new skills. At the moment they make up the Business Development, Creative, Events, Finance, Legal, Marketing, Member Development, Mentorship Program, Product Development & Merchandising, and Technology Teams
How do I know this was the right choice? We’re building a global community where young girls can have the resources and connections we didn’t have growing up and are establishing a network to support women well past retirement
It’s a lot of hard work and there literally has been blood, sweat and tears but nothing ventured is nothing gained.
If you want tips on how I go about making my Pro & Con list, DM me or comment. As for my gut instincts, well... you’ll just have to figure that out for yourself
