On March 6, which was International Women’s Day, I attended the inaugural I’mPOSSIBLE NYC conversation. The panel featured Whitney-Gayle Benta SVP, REVOLT TV, Corynne Corbett of Beauty Biz Camp, Grammy award winner Estelle, founder of the Global Language Project Angela Jackson and PR maven Gilda Squire. A topic that was touched on during this conversation was the transitional point of your career. Several women hit on starting something new after being fired or leaving their previous employer. Starting something new, taking that first step can be frighten it was great to hear how these women maneuvered through that phase of their professional life.
The I’mPOSSIBLE conversation, was started in the UK in 2011 by Simone Bresi-Ando. “I started the I’mPOSSIBLE conversation event series to give a platform for women of colour to talk about their life journeys and ‘how they became POSSIBLE” The NYC edition was held at the L’Oreal Soho Academy and sponsored by Mizani.
A question in the audience that hit home for me was “what to do when your creativity wanes?’ Estelle answered: “go and live, take time off and really live” Even as a young professional, I think we experience burnout. We are trying to do so much and please so many people that we lose ourselves. Taking time to actively live life, will be beneficial in the long run. I think no matter the profession, you have to find that thing that keeps you going.
