Going against the status quo alone and following jumping into a completely different phase of your career can be daunting. There are several forces, both internal and external, that introduce doubt and anchor you into continuing down the path most others take.

How do you build the courage, fortitude, and determination to break through the inertia keeping you where you are, so you can live the life and work the job that you've been wanted?

Gabrielle Gabs Ricci shares their approach to answering this through a journey from working temp jobs to landing their first role in tech as an unpaid intern and transforming that into a full-time role. Gabs' has been able to take their creative background and interests, and turn it into a passion for marketing as a Marketplace Analyst in tech.
