From TA to brand photographer and digital marketer. The power of yet with Jane Hyde|E192

If you’ve ever read a job description and had to run off to a dark room (you know what we mean! You find your dream job, read the criteria and decide you don’t meet it all, so don’t bother applying), this episode is for you. 🤯

Because if you want to go from where you are now to where you’d love to be, there is a small but oh-so-mighty word you can use to help you get there. Just ask Jane Hyde.

She loved her job as a teaching assistant, but as a single mum with two boys growing up fast, it wasn’t bringing in the income she desired. 

So she arrived at TechPixies, got busy defining her vision for her future, added some nifty social media skills to her toolkit and began drumming up business as a brand photographer. As you’ll hear, not even the pandemic could stop her in her tracks. 📸

But after doing some major ANT (automatic negative thought) squashing and realising that although she didn’t have ALL the skills needed for a role in digital marketing YET, she could totally do it, she applied and landed a job as a digital marketing officer. 

And what’s super cool is that Jane gets to be creative and use her awesome photography skills. #winning. 🥳

Here’s why you should tune in

If you’re feeling stuck and need a little dose of inspiration from a woman who has already shown what’s possible when you find the confidence to go after what you want, hit that play button now. Because all that’s standing in the way of you and a pair of Louboutins (or whatever is in your vision of your future) is that voice inside your head.
