The Many Faces of Perseverance: Topic Rejections were just guiding me into the right direction

Growing up you’re always asked, what do you want to be when you grow up? Now that I’m the Sr. Marketing Manager at TuneGO and teach others how to run social media marketing for businesses, via my online course and blog, people always ask me…is this what you always wanted to do? To answer that simply…no. When I was a child I wanted to be a veterinarian or the next Britney Spears, one of the two. I realized I can’t…

The Many Faces of Perseverance: Topic Talking About Your Failures and Issues

Topic: Talking About Your Failures and Issues You know the feeling. You look at your growing to-do list, and then your blog. Its been over two weeks since you’ve last posted, and somehow you can’t think of anything else to talk about! It goes far beyond writer’s block, its a complete overwhelming feeling of not having enough hours in the day. As a blogger who goes to school full time, works 30+ hours a week and somehow tried to sustain…

The Many Faces of Perseverance: Topic Finding Yourself Through Community

As a woman and mother, something that I’m increasingly passionate about is community. I was a SAHM until my son was two, and I definitely lost myself during that time.  I started an Instagram page for my son to just post photos of him in his outfits.  Little did I know it was going to help me get out of my funk.  The best thing that came out of that page was the huge community of moms I found who…

The Many Faces of Perseverance: Topic Never let Someone else tell you who you are

Not everyone lives this pretty perfect picture of success. From the outside looking in some might assume I’ve always had all my sh** together, but really that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Yes, I’m a doctor, and a dietitian but if you had asked me 10 years ago where I would be today, I couldn’t have told you. I sure wouldn’t have believed that the girl who struggled with her weight her whole life would be teaching women to…

The Many Faces of Perseverance: Topic Losing A Parent

I try to keep things positive and not dwell on the negative in situations. But it is time for me to slow it down and get real. I was invited to take part in a blogger series by Alexa with Healthy Dash of Sass about perseverance – how I struggled through a situation and came through it. I am hoping that opening up about this and sharing my journey through the loss of a parent will somehow, someday help someone else. Help them see that there…

The Many Faces of Perseverance: Topic Persevere no Matter what Others have to say

  My story of perseverance actually doesn’t start with me, it starts with my parents. Both of my parents left their countries in their 20s to better themselves and reach their fullest potential. My mother is from Puerto Rico and my father is from Egypt. They met on the streets of New York and got married soon after. I was born in New York and lived there for about 9 years. After a few bad years of barely surviving, my…

The Many Faces of Perseverance: Featuring Jessica Pickering

I pride myself on my strength. I’ve always been resilient and for years I wouldn’t didn’t show my real emotions. I was a rock, I never asked for help when I needed it. I believed that I could work through any of my struggles on my own. I had my weaknesses, although I wouldn’t admit them to anyone. I only showed my strengths to the world and my private struggles were only known within the home. I failed out of…
