I played Hooky in high school – kind of – my parents were away and I asked my grandmother if a friend of mine and I could go to NYC to take photos for a class we were taking. She was cool with it and off we went.
Now this was back when NYC was not a pleasant place to visit– Grand Central was mostly boarded up and it was just bad atmosphere in many areas. Still, it was where we wanted to go. As we walked the blocks and took photos that you can only take in New York, we saw a star: He was old. He was in a wheel chair. He was a household name, and we were there to take photos, but we didn’t. Instead, we followed him, mesmerized– it was Groucho Marx.
We played Hooky and saw Groucho Marx, just out on the street! Looking back, I actually don’t remember much about all the photos we took that day. But I clearly recall how it felt to see Groucho and to follow him for blocks; it was cold and windy, and we wondered if he was warm enough. We hoped he was being taken care of. Our imaginations soared.
It was something completely unexpected. We saw Groucho because we happened to play hooky on that day. There was something about taking that chance and having it pay off with something totally new and wonder-filled that has made me always remember it.
I’m inviting you to play Hooky with me this summer!
I’m not quite Groucho (although I am funny and have been know to where a fake mustache) but I can tell you that if you play Hooky with me that afternoon, you will leave wonder-filled too.
It’s for women who have outgrown their roles, and are sick of the “bro-fest” at work.
Have you outgrown your role, career, or want a new approach to working in a bro fest? Maybe you are thinking of leaving?
If you have uttered at least one of the following phrases at work over the last couple of weeks then playing Hooky with me is for you:
“I hate my fucking job!”
“He’s such a dick!”
“I want to do something else but I’m not sure what!”
“I’ve got to stay at my job but something’s got to give!”
Because Hooky will be a wonderfilled experience that you will long remember!
- We will go through strategies to determine – should I stay or should I go and everything else in between. (Methods for making this kind of decision)
- I think I have a side hustle but I’m not sure. (You will leave with a basic plan)
- How to totally change your view of your current job if staying is what’s best at this time. (Learn how to be a pirate.)
