Career Advice From The Experts

Moving into a new career? Looking to be promote?

It can be disappointing at times. Here is advice for a few experts in their fields.

Paige Adams-Geller, Founder & Creative Director of PAIGE

“I believe the most important quality to have to move ahead in your career is to show passion in every job you have. Even if you are not in your dream job, you need to put your best foot forward. You never know who you will meet or who will end up shaping your future. I would never be where I am today by taking my jobs for granted. I was able to build my dream team when I started PAIGE. Everyone I asked to come on the adventure with me said yes. I believe it is because I gave my best always.

“Remember that your career or business is a marathon, not a sprint. Do not try to be an overnight success or a one-hit wonder. Slow and steady wins the race. Take your time to develop the skills you need. No one expects you to know everything out of the gate.”

Sophie Kelly, SVP North America Whiskey

“Be audacious! Treat your career as an exciting story, one you want to tell, each chapter adding new experiences and capabilities to your professional and life journey. Be passionate, show up and do what you love. Push other women forward, too.”

Julie Smolyansky, President and CEO of Lifeway Foods

“Go with your gut. Never doubt it. Nurture it. Make it stronger. Make listening to it part of your self-care routine. It will never lead you astray. Even if it tells you something you don’t want to hear, trust that voice; it will guide you to the right destination. If it recommends a career transition, a new job or circle of friends, trust it blindly. Make that a foundation you can always turn to in moments of doubt or on hard days.”

Bruna Schmitz, Professional Surfer, Model, and Roxy Brand Ambassador

“Make realistic goals and surround yourself with people you admire. Learn to work hard and embrace setbacks as part of the process. Accept constructive criticism, but most of all, stay open to new ideas and different ways of doing things. Exploring the unknown and welcoming change is an enriching experience.”
