Leslie Inc WorkHappy Retreats Camp Counselor, Ana Gomez, Tells Her Story

On this episode of the State of Happiness podcast, I’ve invited by best friend and Leslie Inc Camp Counselor of WorkHappy Leadership Retreats to tell her professional story – and it’s a good one.

How Ana Succeeded In Overcoming Career Doubts

Ana’s parents didn’t understand her desire to build a career in the arts programming and non-profit world. They found it risky and unsafe. She felt it was perfect for her. Ana started her career just before the recession in 2008 and found new ways to make a name for herself in the arts industry.

In this interview, Ana tells us how she overcame career doubts by doing things differently than her baby boomer parents. She also shares her tips for building a personal brand and creating your own job security.

Recovering From Work Stress

Ana shares how what should have been a relaxing moment became a nightmare. We discover what Ana has learned from building a career in New York City and how she struggled to make time for herself. What convinced Ana to join the Leslie Inc team and how she now copes with work stress and career doubts.
