    Do What You Love, Love What You Do

    Do you have a career that you love or do you just have a job? Well let me tell you I have a career that I love. It didn’t come easy, and I had to step out of my comfort zone to achieve what I’m doing now. “And truth-be-told I am not done yet.”

    Last year while working for a company that I thought I would be a ‘lifer’ at, I came to the realization that I dreaded working there. I no longer felt the warm feeling that I was supposed to feel when I was helping others achieve their goals or when the client would appreciate my work. I was seeing how no one was working together, lots of miscommunication was happening, and other numerous reasons I rather not go into details about.

    I knew that my love for the medical field was there, and being bilingual was a plus especially in this field. I have a strong work ethic and I love to work at my pace without being micromanaged. I don’t tolerate blood well, I dislike germs, and I don’t like being around sick people. So what career did I pick in the medical field (?) – Medical Biller and Coder.

    I attended night classes at a local college near my home (Tyler Junior College), while I worked a full time stressful job, which also included full time mommy duties. It wasn’t easy like I mentioned before. I would leave work to come home and cook dinner for my family while I snacked on something to hold me through classes. If I wasn’t in class I was in my bedroom doing homework and researching things to help me better understand coding concepts. I still have to take my Medical Coding Exam, which is next to be able to complete my certification, but I’m so proud that I took a leap of faith and I love what I’m doing.

    Take that chance. If you are not happy doing what you are currently doing, find a local college and see what night classes are available. I’m glad that I did and I have bettered myself and my family. Trust me it’s never too late to get additional education.
