If you are feeling overwhelmed, you’re not alone. That’s because humans crave certainty. There are many things out of our control right now, including the severity of the coronavirus pandemic, the duration of social-distancing measures, the economic and financial impact, and government policy. What we can control is our own response to the current crisis.
This week’s episode is all about how you can prepare and learn to be comfortable with career uncertainty. I discussed extensively with Daniella how she was able to navigate her career despite the uncertainties thrown her way.
Daniella was born in Lagos, Nigeria, and moved with her family to Mississauga, Ontario, Canada at the age of 14.
She received an undergraduate degree in Criminology from the University of Western Ontario and later proceeded to switch gears by completing a Graduate Certificate in Marketing Management from Fanshawe College. Since then, Daniella has been employed in a variety of digital marketing roles from that of a Paid Media Specialist to a Digital Marketing Manager and currently, in her mid-20s, a Director of Paid Social at Page Zero Media, a leading digital marketing agency in Toronto, Ontario.
In her current role as Director, she oversees the agency’s Paid Social department and leads the team’s efforts of developing, implementing, and optimizing full-funnel paid social marketing strategies for their portfolio of eCommerce clients.
Daniella is also currently a Professor at Fanshawe College, where she teaches Search Engine Marketing & Google Advertising to Canada’s next generation of digital marketers.
