The Irony of this post is quite remarkable. I originally wrote it when I was still pregnant and #1 on almost every HubSpot sales chart and heading off for a planned C-Section. It's been in draft mode ever since. I wrote this 3 years ago and never finished or published it because... enter in early motherhood. I also decided to leave the title for increased irony. This last 3 year journey has had more rollercoasters than I ever dreamed possible. In the last two years at times I couldn't have been further from #1 and had to slowly change all of my life habits to get to a place where I hope to welcome another top performing year professionally but more importantly personally as a human being. I thought it only fitting as today ends the completion of a decade at HubSpot ( December 31st, 2019), I publish a blog. Finding this one in draft was serendipitous.
After reading this short list of To Do's, there's actually not much I would change 3 years later. They are a good reminder for what this upcoming year can bring.
What's also ironic is what I wrote was next. I said these things to myself many times to keep myself going over the last 3 years. Onto 2020!

I hope to post more of my journey as a working sales mom to help other parents navigate the ups and downs you can't really prepare yourself for until you are there.
