Jack of All Trades, Master of None

Dear Readers,

Thank you for still showing up after all this time. I do not apologize for my absence, rather I welcome you back to my corner of the internet with hopes that you too have experienced a year of growth – in whatever form that may take.

If I have learned anything in this industry it is that the most vulnerable stories are the most powerful ones. I have been practicing vulnerability in “real” life, and now will share a story with you here.

Last week I had the opportunity to participate in a community story-telling event. I performed my story in a tiny dessert cafe that night, but it’s a story I’ve been living for several years. The category was “Odd Jobs,” and I could not pass up the chance to share my message.

The audio of that story is included with this post. I hope it gives you a bit of a window to where my mind has been this year. I completed my MBA this summer, and am currently working a temporary job while I look for my next “opportunity.” I have discovered – not surprisingly – that explaining my non-traditional career path to potential employers is not easy. I also continue to wrestle with the deep questions which drew me to the funeral industry in the first place. I welcome your feedback and I will be back here soon!

  1. Awesome!!I just finished working a visitation for a Hispanic family. Then, I come home and listen your story. I had tears in my eyes thinking of that family as I listened to your story. Thanks!

  2. Thank you so much for this!!! I know most of us fear the unknown…we desperately fear loosing loved ones and I have found that the older we get, for me anyway, I fear my death a little less….but I don’t want to go today!!! I am very proud to have known you and know you are and will be very capable at wherever and whatever you choose to do!!!! A. Roof
