My ideal job? Duh, Wonder Woman of course!

Today’s NaBloPoMo prompt post was about what brand or organization, real or otherwise would you like to work for? My first initial thought was Wonder Woman.

Ever since I was little, I have had Wonder Woman as my role model. I had figurines who were almost bigger than I was, a utility belt and I would often spin around ala Lynda Carter hoping to turn into the iconic Amazonian Princess. She was who I aspired to be, a protector.

Throughout my career, I have worked my way up in different facets to be the manager of any business I was in, from a restaurant GM at age 21, to a domestic wine store area manager at age 30. I have had the opportunity to nurture and mentor my team, both women and men and throughout it all, Wonder Woman or the thought of superheroes in general is always in my mind. The Pursuit of Excellence.

I have just seen a documentary on Netflix about Wonder Women! The Untold story of American Superheroines and it makes me glad that I grew up in an age where women were not suppressed and that even in my own adoptive family, I have a superhero Mom to look up to.

So ask me about my ideal job, it would be in a place of balance, using my skills, learning and honing. Being a role model, helping and aiding as I can, being part of a solution and attaining my own goals no matter what obstacle is thrown at me.

Because aren’t we all superheroes? Just because I don’t wear a cape every day (it gets caught in things all the time 😉  ……. doesn’t mean I’m not one. We all ARE.

In wine there is truth. This blog is about my own musings, from the very beginnings.... Truth. In my very first wine experience, I did not even like the smell of wine. I loved the tanks, hoses, and barrels but plugged my nose while walking around the winery. In reality, this wine ninja was all of 5 years of age and had many years to go before falling under the allure of wine. Flash forward a few years, I was culinary bound, learning about flavours, origins and the land and then discovered the concept of Wine pairings. My mind was blown :O! I needed to learn all I could, so I took a chance and applied at 3 wineries. I started at my first choice one on an entry level position, but I have never looked back. I grew with the winery, experiencing different aspects and later growing with the company in management in all aspects of retail and also in sales. Though I have done schooling for other things artistic in nature, I have always circled back to wine, the siren to my career. I have my ISG diploma, are WSET Certified and strive to learn all I can, taking my WSET Diploma with a goal in sight. This is a place where I will share my true impressions, experiences, tastings, recipes (gluten free as I am a celiac), and thoughts not of anyone else. In vino veritas, the quest for knowledge never ends.
