We-he-hell! I hope you girls are having an amazing week. I’m sitting on my couch enjoying a cup of coffee while I am writing this personal post. It’s getting busier and busier for the Career Girl Daily team. Meetings here, meetings there, editorial meetings, interviews, hunting for a new office space. All things, that sound like a lot of fun (and they are really fun!) but really exhausting as well. Which, I don’t realize until I’m actually in my bed.
Most of the times I leave my laptop downstairs, I don’t want it anywhere near my room. (Do you girls have this as well?) My room is a place for rest and relaxation. I take a shower throw on some ugly but comfortable PJ’s and go to bed. Often I spend 10 minutes in bed thinking about everything that happened that day. Who I’ve met, the comments we’ve received if I did my job well enough. It’s a moment where I’m critical, sometimes insecure, laugh about that funny thing that happened that day, think about my goals in life and what I need to do better tomorrow.
Yesterday, while I was reading our introvert post it made me think about something a girl once told me at Uni. We had a class in Entrepreneurship and the teacher asked us: “Who wants to become an entrepreneur later in life?” I raised my hand because I knew that I wanted to become a successful fashion entrepreneur. After that, my classmate came to me and said “Do ‘YOU’ want to become an entrepreneur? Well, if that’s so you should learn to speak up for yourself because you’re always so quiet”. Yep I am an introvert and sometimes people think we don’t have the courage to stand up for ourselves.

I am a classic introvert. I love to be surrounded by friends, family and people but after a day full of fun I need a moment to relax and recharge. I just love to be alone and spend hours on my laptop, read a new book or binge watch a tv show on Netxflix. I will never be the loudest person in the room and scream for attention. I don’t feel the need to have a wild discussion unless it’s about my job. I love to analyze people and sometimes I don’t even feel the need to talk. And that’s me. That’s who I am and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Am I shy? Well, when I was younger I was really insecure but as I got older I became more confident. Did I change and become the loudest person in the room, no not really. Am I confident? Confident yes, arrogant no. I believe in myself, but I never ever think I am better than anyone else in this world. In the end we’re all human beings made of flesh and blood. Introvert or extrovert everyone is capable of setting up a company. Never, ever let anyone tell you, you can’t do something. You can do anything if you have the talent and as long you believe in yourself. You need to be realistic of course, I wish I could sing and dance like Beyonce, but that’s never ever going to happen…
