We asked some fantastic entrepreneurs and creatives to tell us about their first job in their field. Check out their stories below.
I went a more unconventional way when I was ready to go into my field. Most newly certified personal trainers start their career working for a gym or a studio because it gives them the experience they need to eventually go off on their own. I decided to start getting my own clients right off the bat. I didn’t want to work for a big box gym. I knew exactly what I wanted to do and what I had to offer. My mentors were a great inspiration and I wanted to do for other what they had done for me. The word spread like wildfire and within a few months I was getting requests for training. Read more>>
The beginning of my career is different than most—my job isn’t one you can find on “indeed”. It is a unique offering that I created from my soul’s passion. Some people search for a path and for others, the path leads the way. For me, singing has always been my passion and something that I loved to do more than anything. I grew up singing with my family, taking lessons, and eventually going on to join bands and write my own music in high school. I went to college at FGCU for visual arts and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Fine Art with a focus in ceramics and painting. Read more>>
I was raised in a large family and was never a stranger to being around babies. It seemed to come natural to me but even so, when I had my first daughter, I was unprepared for the physical, mental and emotional toll it would take on me.

Well after studying at Columbia College Chicago I started applying to hospitals in major cities like NYC, LA ,Chicago ect. It didn’t really matter to me where my opportunity lies as long as I got to work in my field. Miami was the first call back and I said let’s go! First I had to fly in to my interview. I was very nervous as I was about to graduate and really wanted to get this position. The recruiting process was very easy to be honest, and here I am still in Miami. Read more>>
My “job” found me LOL! I was welcomed into the 30 & over club with the discovery of a blood clot in my neck that was extremely dangerous. After being hospitalized for 4 days, continuously pumped with blood thinner, my womb health took a turn for the worse. I experienced super heavy and painful periods, PMS, chronic infections, anxiety & depression. Read more>>
