What would you do if you knew you COULDN’T fail? For me the answer is … pursuing a 2nd career in nonprofit.
10 years ago I set out to do some heavy duty soul searching, focused on, what I wanted to leave as a legacy at Target and as a leader. It kept coming back to … nurturing people through times of profound change.
I have been blessed to have had amazing opportunities to serve in that capacity at Target in Minneapolis, Bangalore and Toronto.
However, I knew my end goal was to make a bigger and more direct impact on the communities I live in. So, I’ve spent the last year researching, networking and expanding my nonprofit service through board leadership and volunteerism.
While I don’t have a position secured (yet), I believe it’s time to put my beliefs in action and put myself out there so that this can happen! My last day at Target will be Monday 10/17 as I head into this scary and exciting new adventure.
My goal is to be able to make a meaningful impact in the children and family services sector in a fast growing, mid to large size organization as a VP of operations or COO and where I can leverage my unique skill set while learning from experienced leaders.
LinkedIn friends – I’m going to be leaning on you to help me do that! Send me leads, connections, advice, support and … most importantly, advocate for me as you hear of opportunities.
I wouldn’t trade 1 minute of my 26 years at Target. It’s an amazing place with amazing people, around the world.
Here’s to new adventures!
