I’ve been in a purely administrative position for about 8 months. When I say administrative, if you’ve done it, you know what I mean. Wearing 20 hats at any given time. I have learned so much! I’ve received guidance from amazing female and male mentors. I’ve strengthened many professional and personal skills. It makes me excited about what the future may hold and how I can challenge myself!
Throughout my time in this position I have listened to at least 200 inspirational and entrepreneurial training calls. One comment that sticks out in my mind is when leaders say something along the lines of “do you want to be tied to a desk, working 9-5, making a mere $15 an hour, creating someone else’s dream?” I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve heard it 😂 Truth be told... I like being the admin. I like organizing. I like playing a supporting role. I like computer work. There are so many things within the administration role that make me a better and more well-rounded person. With that being said... why do we put down people in this role? Somebody needs to do it! And it certainly takes someone special to start and stay in the role.
Don’t be afraid to take on this role. If you do, appreciate all the little things you learn from everyone “above” you. And remember, if it was easy to be an admin, they wouldn’t be paying you to do it 😘 #admin#administrativeassistant#work#werk#workflow#hustle#grind#empowered#selflove#respect#selfrespect#doyou#learn#grow#girlmom#mentor#bearolemodel
