How I Manifested My New Career Plus More in 2017

If you have been following me, then you know that 2016 was a life-changing year for me. I said 2017 would be the year of success and my word for the year was MANIFESTIn 2017 I worked hard, prayed, and manifested a brand new career!!!

I come from a healthcare background. At the beginning of 2016, I was working in compliance as an administrative assistant. I knew this job was not for me. I was depressed, and my hair was falling out and nothing felt right about that job. I knew something had to change. After a mere 8 months, I was let go from that job. It was a blessing that I was let go.

For the next 8 months, I was a freelance writer, blogger, influencer you name it. I put in the hard work and got opportunities left and right. I began to write in my gratitude journal everything I was grateful for and also things I was worried about. I had saved money for an emergency situation like this, but I also knew that I didn’t want to exhaust my entire savings. I asked God about my financial situation and also wrote down a few of my goals for 2017.

One day on FB I wrote a caption about anyone looking for social media managers. I knew this was something that I wanted to do because I LIVE and BREATHE Social Media. It’s very interesting to me, and I have always been good at it since starting my blog and branding my social media, so I wanted to help others and provide them with guidance with what I have learned.


I landed a few clients but had no idea I would manifest this right here into a CAREER! When it comes to finding a job or career, the universe knows what you want because you have put it out there.

Here is what you need to to do Manifest anything!

Get clear about what it is that you want. I knew I wanted a job in social media, so I started talking about it and putting it out there. I even began to look up social media jobs. Even as so specific in looking up the actual job title of the career I wanted!!

You need to do Research. Research the job or role that you are interested in. Find as much information as possible. Learning about the role shows that you want it!

Write in your journal. I know this helped me. Being able to visualize what I wanted by writing it down, how it would look drew the opportunity that much closer to me. I also wrote down some of my other goals which included appearing on TV! Guess what.. I WAS ON TV THIS YEAR TOO!! 

TV appearance Nov 2017

Surrender. Once you put out into the universe, applied or asked God to send the job your way. Just surrender and let God and the universe do the rest. Once put it out there I got a phone call after speaking with someone that blew my mind. I got asked to come in for an interview with a company that I LOVE DOING MY DREAM JOB!!!

You also need to believe in yourself and your own abilities. We worry too often that after we have applied for jobs, or went on interviews whether we would get the job or not. Worrying does nothing but build resistance. So you just have to let your strengths show and know that you deserve what it is that you want. Speak and know that you are capable and deserving to receive what it is that you have asked for. From my notes above you can see that I asked to put the fear that I wasn’t good enough. I had to let those negative thoughts out to look past them. On May 15th I started my new career as a social media manager. GOD IS GOOD!

Remember that all you have to do is believe that anything is possible. Allow good things to happen, stay positive.

So let me know. Do you believe in the power of manifesting and the law of attraction?

    Yes. I believe in it all Michelle.💗 Your story is so beautiful & unique. This is one I can relate to as I am entering my last semester in undergrad. After graduating I do not want to go to school & I want to live my dreams of being a top beauty influencer, Working with Mielle Organics, being a published author and start my skin care line. In order to make any of this my reality I must apply the effort and dedicate my heart into it all. THIS is where the manifestation begins. I am so proud of you! You did just that yourself & look at where you are! It’s only up from here boo. I am rooting for you always – all ways.

    I have been following you for quite sometime and I love your post, because I seem to always relate in a way. I lost my job back in 2015 and went into depression, still suffering some now. I currently do have a new job but it’s not my dream job. I am not happy at that job and the pay is just an insult honestly, but I have 2 kids to support and take care of so I have no choice. In August I went back to school to get a paralegal certificate (because I love anything dealing with law) so I’m praying and hoping soon I will land a job in someone’s law firm. I also want to start a blog about self-care tips (which I need to practice) and just everyday mom stuff, but I don’t know where to begin and now my 4 year old daughter wants to start a YouTube channel so I’m working on that. Thank you for this post I needed to read this. I need to start writing more in my journal as well about things I want for myself and kids. (Sorry for sharing to much)

      Thank you so much for your support! I believe that you will have a major breakthrough in 2018. Keep putting out there what you want. Write it down and draw it to you. Talk about it. And yes START YOUR BLOG! Don’t wait, the time is now. You will keep talking about it and never do it. Just go for it. Start her a YouTube too!!! You didn’t share too much hun, this is what my platform is for, to connect with other women and empower them to be great. xoxo

    This was awesome, Michelle! I’m so happy our paths crossed. The day I met you, I went back and forth with myself as to whether or not I would get out of the car to go into that blogging event. I didn’t want to feel out of place being there alone but I wanted to soak up any info I could about blogging. I’m so happy that I decide to enter the building and that I got a chance to meet you that day. I had been praying that God would send me someone who would be willing to answer my blogging questions and you were that answer to my prayers. You were so helpful to me that day and any time since then that I’ve reached out to you. I pray that the Lord will enlarge your territory this coming year and shower you with even more awesome opportunities. You’re a true blessing to those who come in contact with you!

    Yes I do believe in the power of manifesting and the laws of attraction. Often we are fearful and have anxiety about taking the next step or thinking outside the box. Everyday is a learning experience. We may not have all the answers but there are so many ways in which we can work to obtain them. You need to surround yourself with people that want similar things in life, attend meetups and groups that have the same goals, read books, watch videos, be a part of an accountability group and practice self proclamations. We must first see ourselves in the positions we want to be in. Say and think positivity toward those goals. Know that we may loose friends, love ones, etc in the process but that is just the way it is. Only you can live your life so why do it the way someone else wants you to do it. The new year is a perfect time to start but if you are ready now, then do it now. We often see people with all of this success and think it came to them easy. If you ever got a chance to speak to them you will find that their journey also came with trials and tribulation, more no’s than they can count, several failures, etc. But the one thing they did was never give up and found another way to make it happen. We are all guilty of giving up when it seems hard and unobtainable. So it’s so important for people like you to share your experience because you will definitely help the next person who feels like they are the only one going through it. Thank you so much for sharing and keeping it real when you could have just put on a façade that everything was perfect in your life. That is the real purpose of social media to share positivity and uplift one another. Many blessings to you and keep inspiring! …applemacg
