+ About the Alaant Spotlight

The Alaant Spotlight features local leaders and businesses to highlight the great work they are doing in our community, sharing their career advice and/or secrets to success—in their own words. They are the people making a powerful impact for good across our region.

What advice can you give to people (millennials, generation Z) just starting out in their careers?

Don’t underestimate the power of hiring a career coach to help you have a competitive advantage in navigating the workforce. Become a lifelong learner, never stop seeking personal, and professional development. Your network is your net worth. 

Build those genuine relationship connections. Don’t ever be discouraged by failure because it is just the process of testing ideas to solve complex problems. Pitch, invest and bet on yourself often. Success is when preparation, and opportunity finally meet. Lastly please take the time to define what success looks like for you. Give yourself much-needed mercy, and grace on your career journey.

How do you achieve a good work-life balance?  

I realized that my career doesn't define me. I can make space for quality time with family, friends, hobbies, education, and rest. I currently work 6 days a week. For me, it is important to maintain balance in order to avoid burnout. Before leaving the house, I spend at least 20 minutes doing something I enjoy. This can be meditation, dancing, watching the sunrise while drinking my coffee, or even reading. 

This allows me to be completely present, and enjoy the current moment. The future is important, but living in the present allows me to be grateful. Having a healthy balance decreases stress, anxiety, and overthinking, and I can still be very successful in my career without sacrificing my personal life. My advice is to schedule your time to work, your hobbies, your family, and your free time to just be.
