I bet you weren’t expecting to read that blog title here on Curious Robyn any time soon, huh?
Well, it’s true. After almost 7 years at Parent24.com, I handed in my resignation today. The first time I’ve ever had to do that, which is a very strange feeling to be honest.
You see, I grew up at 24.com. Literally. I started there as a wee intern with nothing but big dreams and zero life experience. I was 19 years old and despite bringing my mother to my interview (she stayed at the reception desk, okay!) Sam Wilson gave me a chance. And I’ll never be more grateful.
Almost 7 years later and I became a fully functioning adult, got married, found my best friend (that’s you, Zayaan!) and learned so much about life and business from the most incredible people. People like Sam and Adele Hamilton and Scott Dunlop, people that became more than just bosses or colleagues but friends. Let me stop now before this turns into a Grammy acceptance speech and I start to cry.
Once I pack up my things and cry all of the tears (because that’s what happens when you leave home) on the last day of July, I’ll be on a whole new adventure.
I’ll officially be a freelancer and working on some awesome projects via a business my brother started (I’ll share more on that another time) and I’ve now joined him on. Content writing, social media website managing and a load more. I’ll be doing all of the things 24.com has prepared me for and leaping into so much more that I will need to learn and develop all on my own.
To say that I am excited is an understatement. Life is about to get about 1000x more crazy and I’m leaping into the unknown, because who doesn’t love excitement!?
For now I’m chuffed and scared and excited and nervous and I’m sure I’ll continue to feel a thousand more feelings before this month is done, but for now, Robi is growing up just a little more and that’s an adventure all on its own.
If you have any questions, then ask away! For now, chat soon.
