Yesterday, I came across a great VIBE interview with Food Network TV star Sunny Anderson.
In the interview, Sunny offered some powerful career advice from her own journey:
“I had a job at this radio station doing sales and I came up with this term. I call it the 8:59:59 job. If you’re at an 8:59:59 job you might want to leave it. You pull up and you sit in that car in the parking lot until 8:59:59, then you walk upstairs at 9 o’clock and you deal with the day. Then you leave at 5 o’clock on the dot. If you’re doing that, this ain’t it. There’s gotta be something you can do that can make you happier. It might not make you money, but happiness is soul money. When I was doing that sales job I thought, this ain’t it. That let me know that this is what a lot of people feel. A lot of people feel this but they don’t know what it is. It’s where you’re not supposed to be. If you can deal with a little bit of anxiety and the fear of the unknown of the future and a little struggle to go chase down what it is, you might end up in a better place.”
Not only did Sunny’s wise words resonate on our Happy Black Woman Facebook page, she also gave us some nifty new hashtags:
Do you have an 8:59:59 job?
If so, it might be time to switch gears and start doing something you really love.
And if you want to turn what you love into a business…
