A “Gone With The Wind” moment triggered a remarkable life turnaround for best-selling author, Marianna Olszwski. Like Scarlett O’Hara, she reached rock bottom and vowed “never to be this broke again” when her car broke down in the middle of the George Washington Bridge, and no one would help her.
Olzwski’s book, Live It, Love It, Earn It” and reviewed on NY1.com recently, is meaningful because she went on to achieve an MBA in international finance and to create a multimillion-dollar hedge fund marketing company. Her book is aimed at women, but offers advice that could help anyone searching for a hedge fund job these days.
Among her tips: don’t limit your networking to just job fairs and career-related events. Get out there and network at charity events, religious organizations, at your previous employers, just about everywhere.
Be attuned to your instincts and talents, as well, she says. If you have a nagging dream about changing careers or starting your own business, it’s there for a reason. Follow your instincts and you may end up doing something extraordinary.
