I know everything in life is not always going to go as planned but it is at the end of those moments that leads you to Fresh new starts! Although New beginnings can be scary at times, it is in no comparison of dealing with the what ifâ€™s in your mind once that opportunity has passed you by.

Promotions, still exist in a failing economy! LaDawn Craft Parrish is originally from Detroit, Michigan , she has been a resident of Athens for 17 years and attended the University of Georgia for a short period of time. After working a stream of unfulfilling jobs she decided to go back to school in a attempt to improve her financial situation. While balancing her marriage, full time job and being a proud mom of three beautiful cats, she managed to receive her associate degree in Business Administration at the American Intercontinental University online in 2005. After finishing school she was not sure of what direction to go in and as many of us has experience the bills never stop coming. So LaDawn found herself back working unfulfilling jobs and living pay check to pay check. She wonder why it seemed that no matter how hard she worked and placed her best foot forward, she could never get ahead. What she realized later was that something was missing out of her steps and that something she soon found out was God. Now that LaDawn has begin to learn more about God she feels that it was through him that she was promoted, because none of her work ethics have changed. She has always been the employee that was at work on time, humbled, never called in , as well as a reliable hard worker. She feels like all of these are keys to success, but it does not always guaranteed success. She believe that God is the one who can put you in position for success, in work and life in general. She is still working on her relationship with God currently and is learning how to put her faith in him. She feels like God made the moves that were necessary to put her in the position to be promoted. She has always felt capable of being a leader of the store but was never giving the opportunity. New beginnings to LaDawn means a new way of doing things, a new way of thinking, and all about positivity! She plans to lead the store with positivity and her cheerful spirit! She admits being a little nervous in this new chapter in her life, but she is willing to face it with God by her side. The position has given her a lot of confidence in knowing that great things can come your way if you really believe. She now feels like she can do anything and appreciate that Debbie; her district Manager really believes in her! She is looking forward to the future and has her heart open to more promotions. LaDawn did lose her mom to aids years ago and she believes that her mom is smiling down on her. She said her mom has always seen her as a shining star and when she passed it really cause her to lose some of her ambitious. Now that she has manage to obtain such a big accomplishment, she is now finding her desire to spread her wings and fly again, something her mother had always told her she could do!
LaDawn Craft Parrish words of encouragements There is a song that I listen to by a Christian group named Switch foot called "This is Home." There is a verse that goes "I've come too far and I won't go back," and it describes how I feel at this moment. I have been working hard and waiting patiently for the success I desired in my professional life. I have been so close to achieving that success so many times, but it always seemed to pass me by. I have been through so much in my personal as well as professional life, and I sometimes wondered when it would be my time to shine. Well that the moment is finally here and I am not willing to give that up for anyone or anything. I have waited too long and worked too hard for this. Those who tried to make it seem as if I was not quite good enough or competent enough to be placed in a position of authority were not able to hold me back from what I had worked so hard for after all. Now it is my time to shine. I would just like to encourage anyone who is doing their best and it seems that their best just is not good enough to keep on doing their best because God is watching and he knows your heart and he will reward you for your efforts when it is your time. To anyone who is made to feel unworthy of a certain position in life, just remember no matter what anyone else thinks or says, that God sees the worth in all of us. He knows all of the unique gifts and talents that we each possess; after all, he is the one who gave them to us. You should just hold fast, do your best, and have faith and he will place you in a position to use your gifts and shine!
