After almost two months of working with Echo Consulting, I feel like I have won the lottery finding this team to grow with. I have spent the past 8 years working what most would consider an “alternate” career path, switching seasonally between managing Ski and Ride Schools at Bolton Valley, Stowe, and most recently, Cannon Mt., and managing my own carpentry business when there was no snow on the ground.
Starting at Echo Consulting, working remotely, and spending most of my working day at a desk are major changes to my day-to-day work life. I had a lot of nerves around making this transition; could I do it? Could I handle the multitasking? Could I learn the tools? Could I spend the day at a desk? Did I have what it takes to join this talented team?
What I have found out over the past couple of months is the answers to these questions lie within my own mindset. With a “Fixed” mindset, the answers to all these questions would have been a resounding “No" With a “Growth” mindset, a person believes they can make changes and learn beyond their existing knowledge or talents.
