Not about that Corporate life!

Here we are, on the second of 4 flights, making up a 37hr journey home, and I was just struck by something that I thought I would share. We’ve all been on an aeroplane, right? Watching the crew perform their security checks and give their infamous safety demonstrations? So, regardless of which airline you have travelled with, you’ve noticed their professionalism, their poise, the fact that they (generally) look “the part”. From my own experience as a flight attendant, I know that there are a lot of company standards, department expectations and customer interface considerations behind what we as passengers see in the appearance of our crew. And I just realized that I will NEVER be able to have a job like that again! You may or may not know that while in Florida 2 months ago, I got a tattoo. On my hand. You may or may not know that customer interface airline jobs are strictly a visible-tattoo free zone. Why does this matter? Well... I don’t know about you but I have always been one to give myself a safety net of sorts. No matter what commitment I make, I have always engineered some kind of fall back / plan B scenario, in my mind at least, if not a literal PLAN! And I just realized that by getting this visual homage of who I want to be in this world permanently depicted on my hand, I have deconstructed my safety net! The entrepreneurial journey is one of the hardest things I have ever embarked upon and it is a journey with no guarantees. There are rollercoaster twists and turns, mountaineering-worthy ups and downs, as we are driven by our values and work tirelessly to create life on our terms. Yes there are no guarantees, but I know, deep in my soul, that I was meant for this life. I know that I was put on this Earth to empower other women through their struggles so that they can create whatever life it is they want, because that is what I have been able to do, and what I continue to work for every day. And for that mission, there is no plan B. It’s funny how an impromptu visit to a tattoo parlor on a fun-filled girls trip can end up having such a profound effect on one’s life, isn’t it?! xoxo Sabs
