She gave me my spark back!

I had been working at my job six years. I hate to admit it but during the last 2 years I became bored and uninspired. Each day was a drag. I looked for something to spark that interest in me… that fire!

Faari a came along and it was a refreshing experience working with her about my situation and aspirations for the future.

I found direction on what I could do to reposition myself within and outside my present place of work, how to draw strength from other sources other than my immediate self and environment.

You see when you take interest or notice others around you and empathize with them in their own challenging situation, there’s some unexplainable peace that radiates around you. It gives you a new perspective on life.

One thing I took away with the experience with Faari was I changed my way of representing myself; writing my resume and being deliberate about my LinkedIn profile – you know started networking more with influencers.

Now got a new role within the same company and seriously those last two years were a holiday!
