Giving back to the community by sharing your story

I was recently invited to be part of a panel discussion called “Reshape your Future”. This event was hosted by WHW formerly known as Women Helping Women. WHW is a non-profit organization based in Irvine, CA with the mission of providing the unemployed and the underemployed the skills and resources they need to get and keep a good job.  

Each year hundreds of job seekers participate in programs focused on equipping them to be the most marketable candidate for the job they seek. Their programs include Employment Readiness Workshops, Computer Training, Job Placement Assistance, Employment Retention Support and Professional Apparel.

An amazing group of Salesforce Professionals, including myself, were invited to share our Salesforce story as they were introducing their new Salesforce Trailhead 101 Webinar which starts Tuesday, September 15th. Sharing my story was a pleasure. I hope I inspired someone out there in the same situation as me especially moms who are returning to work after taking a career break to raise their families. (Actually, I know that I did inspire other people, especially women, by the nice emails I received through LinkedIn. Thanks for your kind and empowering words!)

These are some of the things that I’m grateful for after being part of an event like this.

  1. Being a panelist not only inspires the listeners and attendees but it also inspires the panelists and the moderators too. I was inspired and learned from each of the stories I listened to. Their stories motivated me to continue growing in my field. One thing I’m sure about is that no matter the subject, I’ll never stop learning or creating. Life always teaches you something new everyday, especially if you are receptive to listening and seeing the obvious as well as the not so obvious. That’s when you are able to absorb knowledge and feed your brain and even your soul.
  2. I got the chance to strengthen my professional brand by sharing my story and offering advice from my experience, my point of view, from my end.
  3. I’m glad I was able to connect with professionals with many years of experience in Salesforce. Only good things can come from this new connections. Remember, relationships are like plants. You need to water and nurture them on a regular basis for them to survive.

I’m grateful for many other things too but it’s time to sleep in order to be productive tomorrow. Time to let the neurons and brain cells rest. Cheers for good health!
