My #Rewind2011

I hit up Twitter on my 6:30AM train out to the burbs this morning and saw that #Rewind2011 was a trending topic.  So naturally I thought back to what had happened to me in 2011 and realized a whole hell of a lot has happened in my world this year.

March: Bought a new car, resigned from Corporate America/my career in finance and started as the Community Marketing Manager at a start-up.

April:  Went on a fantastic trip to Puerto Rico for a wedding and started to realize how bat shit crazy some companies are run. Here’s a post I wrote about Interview Liars a few months ago.

July 12: Got laid off from the start-up along with a third of my co-workers.  Some of these people hadn’t even been there a month- talk about irresponsible hiring!

July 28th: Hold my first Ms. Career Girl Connect event which has approximately 50 women in attendance!

July 30: My boyfriend moves into my apartment.

July 31: I get engaged!!!  More on “The Best Week Ever” here.

August: Fiancé accepts a new job where he will not be doing 100% travel for the first time in our relationship (and for the first time in his whole 8 year career). Hello togetherness!

I meet Kovie Biakolo for coffee and instantly know I’ve made a life-long friend and someone who I can work very well with.

September: Host my 2nd Ms. Career Girl Connect event which is approximately 100 women in attendance!

October: Take a trip to Naples and South Beach, Florida for another friend’s wedding and freak out about being self-employed.  I send resumes out and start completely doubting the idea of working for myself.

Kovie reels me back in about being self-employed (as does going on a few job interviews).  We officially decide to move forward with offering digital marketing services.

November:  My company, MCG Media, Inc. brings in more revenue than I’ve ever taken home in Corporate America.

I try on wedding dresses for the first time and go from the anti-bride to someone who likes poofy tulle ball gowns and wedding planning.

December: MCG Media’s website is under construction (thanks again Proof- this will be project #4, wow!), business cards have arrived, a tiny bit of structure is put in place and the phone even starts ringing for some new work.

This story is to be continued, but – wow!- what a year.  I can only imagine what this post will look like a year from today!

I hope your #Rewind2011 was a great one too.  And if it wasn’t, maybe it’s time to turn up the heat, get uncomfortable or get weird next year!
