I’ve always been the type of person who’s juggling a dozen things at once. While there’s still so much I want to accomplish in my life and career, I’ve had some amazing opportunities and accomplished a lot that I’m proud of over the past few years. I’ve filmed television pilots, written for tv, appeared on talk shows and international news programs, spoken at colleges and high schools around the country, been featured in various news publications, taken seminars, taught a few seminars, won awards, raised money for charity, mentored students, presented at tech conferences and much much more. And all while juggling different jobs, being a newlywed, maintaining a social life and spending way too much time online.
The thing is, my story isn’t that unique or special when compared to my friends and online community. We’re all doing a ton of interesting stuff and have huge goals and dreams. And when I look at my own journey, the thing that sticks out the most is the importance of visualizing what I want. It’s for that reason I’m honored to share that I’ve recently partnered with Bayer HealthCare as a digital influencer/spokeswoman for The Timeline Project™.
So what exactly is The Timeline Project™? I’d say it’s kinda like a digital vision board. The idea is pretty simple: Today’s Millennial woman wants to do it all. More importantly, she wants to do it all on her own schedule. And when it comes to figuring out what you want to do in life, family planning is and should be part of the equation. Do you want kids? Do you not want kids? How does if/when you have kids influence what you do now and what you do later? Either way, there should be some planning involved. So the Timeline Project™ gives women a place to map out what they want to accomplish and decide if/ when a family fits into that.
The site includes the ability to make your own personalized digital Timeline with life goals concerning career, education, health, family, community and health, along with deadlines for each goal. Once a Timeline is built and personalized, you’ll get linked to relevant articles that can help you achieve the goals you’ve set. Once you’ve set up your Timeline you can share with the community and your social networks, keep it private and also check out other Timelines. The goal is to not only get women thinking and visualizing their goals but also working together to inspire and motivate each other. Seeing as that’s already something I strive towards in my own online circles, I instantly knew this was a project I wanted to be involved with. In the coming weeks I’ll be doing some appearances and interviews about the project and encouraging more women to start visualizing what they want with their Timeline.
