"You need a thick skin to survive in this business and that is what they are all teaching me as I move along in this business."

What en episode! A lot happened tonight -- I hope you loved the Jeremy Scott show as much as I did! As I've mentioned in my first blog, following your dreams is not always what it seems once you are making them into a reality --  there are many bumps along the way as seen in tonight's episode. At the end of the day I'm only human and not a robot, and with the staffing changes and my workload almost tripling, there were not enough hours in my day to get every single thing done. Crying was probably not the best thing to do, but as Kelly says, If You Have to Cry Go Outside, which I was trying to do, but Emily wouldn't let me. Ha. In all honesty, I hit my breaking point, like a crossroad, and in that moment I had to really think about what I was going to do and needed to speak with Kelly. Did I want to give up and walk away...? No. Did I need to figure out a solution in order to get the work done and stay at People's Revolution? Yes. When I went back into the office, Emily and I had a really great moment and sorted out everything that needed to get done because of course she is the color-coded genius and she is here to help me and mentor me as I grow professionally. You need a thick skin to survive in this business and that is what they are all teaching me as I move along in this business. Later that evening we had an event with Ina and it was extremely successful. High Five to the Rev!

Life is full of lessons and I've learned a lot of them at People's Revolution. In the words of Kelly: tonight's episode was not a breakdown for me, it was a breakthrough!

See you next week!
