The past couple months have been very exciting for me at IMPACT as I transitioned to a new role of Account Supervisor.

In addition to being the point person for a select few clients, I now manage a team of six Account Executives. 

Without even realizing it, this new role and added responsibility has been something I've been working towards for a while now, all stemming to what I consider my passion in my career: helping people. 

Though "helping people" is a super generic passion to claim, it's something that encompasses so many aspects of my life.

But determining that passion, honestly, has not come easy... and that's OK. 

All too often we are pressured to follow our dreams and pursue our passions, but what happens when we don't really know what our passion is?

My first job out of college was as a copyeditor for a small shopper marketing agency where I worked on in-store offers for Kraft Foods.

Though I learned a lot in this role, I will never forget the day my Mom asked me how things we're going and I broke down in tears saying "I will never care enough about macaroni and cheese!"

I realized I lacked passion and actually questioned if I would ever find it in my career. 

Though that was a scary realization, it taught me how to be successful in the moment and identify my passion later in life. 

Join Marcella and I as we navigate the rocky road of finding passion in your career and explain why it's OK to not always have one particular passion defined.
