“Do what you NEED to do now, so you can do what you WANT to do sooner.”
Part of being a professor is I was also a Department Chair. I ran the fashion department. I wrote the curriculum, I recruited students and I actually grew the department. 5 Years this position. My dean came to me and told me that I had to step down as dept chair. That was a MAJOR blow to me, because I felt like I was good enough to develop and grow the department, but not good enough run the department. So I really felt like such failure, that I couldn’t even hold on to something that I was really good at. But discovered later that is God opening up a door and a new opportunity for me.
Going back to that time of failure when my dean told me I needed to step down, turned into my “Ah-Ha” moment, because it was then that I really learned to hear God’s voice about what I should be doing, which is my current business today.
