Ashley you spoke from my own heart. I left a job after 3 years that I thought was my dream position. I had the pay I wanted and the job requirements were great. But like you stated, if direction and purpose are NOT clear, an easy job can become difficult due to poor management. THAT IS EXACTLY WHY I QUIT .. POOR LEADERSHIP AND UNNECESSARY DECISIONS MADE BY MY BOSS.. OR THE MANY DIFFERENT BOSSES THAT I HAD
..I'm currrently in the process of starting my own business but it is much more less stressful and more rewarding knowing that I'm following MY dreams with purpose and vision. Ashley YOU are a BOSS you DO NOT need a position at a corporation to validate you. If your powerpoint presentation allowed God to open up a MANAGEMENT position your 1st week out of college he is certainly showing you have the drive to build your own business. Just imagine with your passion the doors and opportunites you can open not only yourself but for others as well. Keep believing in yourself and your dreams and GOD will take you as far as your faith will allow. ** SIDE NOTE** To any body who is reading this..follow YOUR dreams and your passion and your drive to succeed will open up so many opportunities!! 💕
I've had the opportunity to work for 4 people as well - never had the luxury (if I may call that) of all 4 agreeing. Figuratively speaking, in that car I had turn left, another stay, another turn right, another go straight - many occasions where I had to email all 4, outline what each wants and which direction I need to take. When two of them had conflicting instead, then I was the go between middle person passing on messages. Stayed for 2 years and left to a new role - now working for one person. Thank God!
I'd love to see you make a video on topics about what attracts a woman to man, black Republicans, gambling addiction, the law of attracting anything you want, interracial dating, nice guy=ugly or bad boys=handsome, saving money/reducing debt, improving credit score, or even street harassment.
I would love to hear your interview story time! I also did business & marketing and had the same issues like you for a year working there, until few days ago I decided to quit! I couldn't even wait until I find a new job because it was really difficult! I better work in a random job while I look for a place that values me as a person and a professional!
i just quit my job yesterday... i was bullied and there was too much drama and no one was professional.. . i am scared but i feel so free... i got paid really well for the now 21 year old i am.. i pray that i made the right choice and find something since the clock is ticking. thank you for this video.
You live in Texas but you do not have an accent! WTF!? Are you not supposed to have an accent when you live in Texas? Where are you cowboy/cowgirl hat??? I would like to see your job interviews/jobhunt. What company would be your top five list? How old are you 19? I would like to see you go on 5 dates and give us grades, does and dont´s when dating you. I want to see you ride and do some shooting, Miss texas.
I'm so glad I watched this vid Ashley! I'm currently at a job that isn't fulfilling/isn't what I expected it would be once I started after graduation and I feel like I need to explore other careeer paths right now but I have no clue how to begin. How would you recommend cutting ties with a company amicably so that it might be possible to work with them in the future? How would that conversation even start??
Hey, I'm a sophomore in college right now, and I was wondering if you could talk about how it was to be a black woman in the business world. I just changed my major to business, and my mom is really concerned about if I could even be successful in this field.
Hey Ashley I would say to use your time wisely. If you Feel that You should be writing a book or be starting your own business then you should. Why? Because it is vital to listen to your inner voice that's what makes you unique but not just unique but You. You need a mentor to bring out or awake the giant within you. You are more then what you think Ashley. YouTube and work can make you a living which is great. But once you awaken that giant from within it will make you a fortune. Yes your young, But, don't make that an excuse from being phenomenal. Go to Eric Thomas website for assistance, listen to his videos. And invest in YOURSELF. Take the time to go to his seminars or just go to one where you see him personally to help when your feeling like you are worth more then whats around. I believe that your life will never be the same. I hope to see more of your greatness. and I know you will if you only invest in YOURrself.
you're so articulate. I wish that I had the ability to express how I feel and what I think so fluidly on the spot like you. I'm good at writing it out but having the words come to me so fluidly is so hard for me. It's like my brain freezes and lots of ummm's and uhhhh's come out. I could hear you talk all day! Good luck with your job hunt. I'm on the same journey and I know exactly what you're talking about.
Lol are we the same person? I'm also a recent Business Management graduate but my career focus is on marketing and communications. I quit my job in December in the middle of a project (which I 100% attribute to my boss - she was heavily pregnant, engaged in so many other activities like sitting on boards and chairing associations, and highly autocratic and when you mix all those with her being self-employed and choosing your own hours very little work can be done). There were so many things I saw that were wrong for myself and kind of person I am in that organisation that I finally had to cut my ties - there was very little room for career progression (she's a consultant and I was her assistant and I think that's all it ever would've been), my eagerness to learn and drive could never be nurtured and developed there because of how autocratic the environment was (I don't blame her though, it's a very lone wolf occupation to have so accommodating for others may be difficult but nonetheless I felt like a machine waiting for a command) and there was very little progress on the client work. I had briefly interned there before but I don't think it gave me a full glimpse of an organisation on top of the fact that I was still learning how to navigate the workplace. That was honestly my dream job on paper but in reality it wasn't for me and with the unemployment rate here I always feel judged explaining that to people but when you know your worth you can't ignore it. I've been looking to straight up apply to marketing consulting firms but your warning has me weary now, I'd really like to know now.
Are we still going to get the video ideas you mentioned in this video? I'm actually in the process of applying to a consulting firm's marketing internship programme right and I feel it would be a great fit in my career but I'd like to know why you advise otherwise. Also the makeup and outfit ideas would be appreciated! Thank you for speaking up on this!
Yesssss - definitely interested in your Business GRWM/Interview Looks. I'm aiming to start interviewing for career opportunities in the near future and am a bit stuck on what to wear - I've only really interviewed for retail jobs where a pair of nice pants and a cute blouse was enough. Thank you in advance!
Wishing you the best on your post-grad journey!
Bravo!!! You are still young enough to find the perfect position if you choose or start your own company ...the possibilities are endless explore all of them until you find something that brings you fulfillment and purpose.
Ashley ❤️ Like so many others are saying in the comments - I felt this in my soul too. You are so strong and so wise, thank you for sharing your words and experiences with us. I truly wish you the best in all your endeavours, thank you x
Yes Ashley! I'm a senior at The University of Mississippi majoring in Business Administration as well and I would love see more videos focusing on the business professional side. You portray a great deal of class and professionalism and who would be better to make a video on such. I am currently going through the exact same situation where I have been there for 2 yrs while in school but the experience was awesome but it is definitely time for me to move forward. I am so happy for you and thanks for the encouragement 😘
I see you as an entrepreneur. Follow your own dreams and goals. You will never feel completely satisfied working for someone else. I recommend that if you choose to work for a company, use that experience and income to build your own empire. Best of luck in everything you do beautiful!
Ashley you did the right thing.... Im praying that you get another job soon and its a job where your greatly appreciated. So sorry you dealt with some ignorant ppl. Stay positive and the right people will find you. Im so glad you had the courage to walk away. please do the job make up and clothing to help other ladies. Thanks for sharing with us your private and personal business.
I've been out of the job market/hunt for three years. I am ready to get back to work so I would like to know your interview experience. What are some of the questions they are asking these days and how did you respond? I feel like I am out of the loop so I would appreciate hearing what you are getting.
This is where a lot of companies will mess up w\ millennials. Had this same issue with the company I was working for; it was aggravating. Like you invested in yourself and gained an expertise of a subject and then someone tells you, you basically don't know how to make professional business decisions. I commend you for standing ground Ashley! Best of luck with your job search beautiful!!
New Subbie 💕 Ashley , I'm a college student majoring in Marketing with a minor in communications so a business series would be amazing and so helpful to someone like me who hasn't learned much about those thing .
I remembered when you told us that you got that job ,I said to myself that it wouldn't last. I don't know what it was. I see you having your own company maybe hair and makeup . Everything happens for a reason god has other plans for you.
They say when you have a feeling about something and you can't get rid of the feeling/thought then it's meant to be, you just have to go for it! I'm currently trying to do the same, good luck girl! You're smart and ambitious so I'm sure everything will work out
yes to interview storytime.
very yes to start your own "thing". you would be wasted working for someone else when you could be the opportunity for more brilliant ones coming through offering your own internships that lead to jobs. by all means get a job for now if it comes back to that, but ultimately, start your business. we need a better callibre of ceo's coming through for so many reasons
Love that you're so well spoken it doesn't make it difficult to comprehend what you're discussing and you have a good head on your shoulders so whether or not you're looking for a job, things happen for a reason and when a door closes, another one opens! Bless xoxo
Tomorrow I'm starting a job in my career field and my major in school, a vlog on business attire would be great. I believe I have a general ideal on my clothing but I'm not huge on makeup but would like to start wearing it more because I will be in a professional setting!
Best of wishes on your search ❤️
If you're not happy at a place whether it be work or school it is always good to take a stand a leave. I can relate I have been feeling the same way about school so I'm transferring next semester and I honestly feel my horizons will broaden even more! Good luck on your future endeavors girl!
God works in mysterious ways! I feel everything happens for a reason & it might be a sign. I feel that you can expand your own brand now until you can find your next move. I enjoyed this makeup tutorial.
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
