In this episode, Mallory Drury, former Executive Assistant to the President and CEO of Marcus & Millichap, shares her personal experience of being at a crossroads and thinking through next steps in her career. After eight plus years as an Executive Assistant, she finds herself in a reflective state of mind as she tries to determine what’s next for her, whether that’s another Executive Assistant position or something completely different. Jessica tackles this conversation interview-style by asking Mallory questions about what makes her tick, what contributes or detracts from her enjoyment and satisfaction and how she finds fulfillment. We hope that Mallory’s story offers some guidance and encouragement to those listeners out there who find themselves in a similar place. If you’re feeling similarly ambivalent or unsure about where you are with your Executive Assistant career, we hope hearing Mallory’s story will give you some ideas to ponder and reflect on, or even help you reignite your passion for EA work. This episode promises to be raw, heartfelt, enlightening and hopeful.
