Laura Hartmann and Gladi Colon of H&F Redefined: The Power of Flexibility; How I Was Able To Pivot To A New Exciting Opportunity Because Of The Pandemic

Having a diversified skillset is critical, you never know when your professional life will get dismantled, so ensure you have developed skills that are cross functional for various types of roles… or your own.

This is 100% a lesson I will be teaching to my kids, that I never would have realized was so important until I was laid off. I had the luxury of working for a global hotel brand that had processes in place, and helped streamline a lot of areas such as PR, marketing, IT, website management, content creation, and now I’m learning alongside Gladi how to do things on my own vs forwarding to another department what I need produced. It’s humbling, but I look at how much I’ve learned to do from watching tutorials, stalking influencer pages, googling, and scouring YouTube to self-teach myself on areas that I took for granted were managed by other people in my past. I’m so proud of all that I’ve learned and it’s empowering to know I can still develop myself, and expand my resume skills.
