I am the career and social media stylist who uses content and social media to land ambitious side hustlers into their lasting dream careers while achieving business goals in their passion projects!
When I graduated college, I had an idea of what my life was going to be like. I was going to get an amazing corporate job in my field with a starting salary to allow for everything I wanted in my young life.
It may sound crazy, but I always wanted to be the boss lady that everyone looked up to with the big decisions. I wanted to be the head honcho.
Then, I walked across that stage, got that diploma and… none of that happened. I didn’t get that amazing job in my field, didn’t have a salary to provide anything, and I definitely wasn’t making any decisions.
Talk about being crushed, defeated, and confused. I thought that all I needed to have my killer life was to get that degree. But, I was seriously wrong.
I didn’t let being stuck in my just above minimum wage job completely destroy me. But, the constant job rejections almost did.
I was interviewing, interviewing, and interviewing multiple times a week looking for a marketing job that would whisk me away from my current hell. Anything!!!
My job was getting to me more and more. My attitude sucked. All I did was complain – about my job. I stopped caring about my appearance, my friends, my life. All because my job made me miserable and I couldn’t get out.
So, I started my blog, According to Brittney, because I knew there were other women like me out there who were feeling lost, defeated, and fed up. They don’t hand you a manual after college that says “This is everything you’re supposed to do to be a well-adjusted human being.” No, they just shove you off into the “real world” and you have to figure it out.
I didn’t want anyone else to have to figure it out alone. Little did I know, this blog would lead to so much more.
To get out of my job, I had to learn the hard way. I read a million books, blogs, and talked to people who had it figured out. As an introvert, I stepped out of my comfort zone by networking, going to conferences, working hard at internships, and did something a little unexpected.
I started According to Brittney and doing exactly what I wanted to do in my career. I wanted to write, so I started creating weekly blog posts. I wanted to be a social media manager, so I created and managed the According to Brittney accounts. I made myself different. I made myself stand out from every other applicant.
This blog has gotten people interested in me and ways I never imagined. The next resume I sent, I was sure to add According to Brittney to my experience. I got that job.
The long search for my dream job is over. Now, I want to help other women stand out, get their dream jobs, build their businesses, and live their dream life.
