My time here in Milan has come to end – but only for now. I need to go back to Zurich for a busy week of shootings in Switzerland and Germany. However, I am looking forward to be back soon in this sunny and fashionable city.
Although I’m starting to miss Milan a little bit already, I have to admit that the start in this city wasn’t that easy for me. I mean, I knew Milan from a touristic view already but it was my first time for work though. Therefore moving to Milano for work without knowing what I can expect out of it was quite hard. Especially since I declined jobs in Switzerland and Germany to jump into this adventure to expand my international network and gain new experiences.
The decision between staying in your comfort zone and having the security of your known environment or going beyond that and risk something new of which you don’t know the outcome yet is always very hard. But hey, I decided to take the risk. If you want to reach a higher level you have to take on new opportunities and let the safe haven behind you. Remember you can always go back. However the ones who want to have success need to work hard for it and never give up. This is at least my opinion. In doing so, of course you are not safe from failure but every mistake is a lesson, you just need to know how to take the learning points out of it.
Speaking of that, the challenging start let me reflect about myself, my job and my life. We know that everyone has this moments in which you are thinking about being on the right track or not. In my case it turned out to be a good time in Milan with lots of new insights in the model scene, interesting encounters and connections which are so important in this business and the certainty to be on the right path. And I am more than happy to be back soon to work more in this beautiful city.
Take care & write you soon...
