Happy Saturday ladies! Just sending some encouragement to keep going! I am up for promotion and was faced with resistance when trying to get support. After a frustrating check in with my manager last October I started my job search. This Tuesday I finally got the job offer I have been waiting on! Don't give up and don't undervalue yourself. Have a wonderful weekend 💕
