Buzzing with Excitement! Career Defining Moments…


A career girl will do many hours of work in her life, this includes internships, work experience, bar work, office clerk, temp jobs, the list goes on. Many of those hours will be mind numbing some will even be heart breaking but once in a blue moon you’ll experience something that puts everything in perspective for you…a career defining moment.

My employment history has been colourful to say the least. I’ve been a hip hop teacher, a go-go dancer, stuffed goodie bags in catty PR firms and even did a two year stint as a chocolatier in the most incredible chocolate factory.

For the last 2 years I’ve been working for a lingerie company. I started off selling pretty knicker and luxe toys on the shop floor and then began my career working behind the scenes in Maple HQ. A Jill of all trades, EA, social media and most excitingly copy writer.
Although I’ve been told I have a natural talent for visual merchandising truffles and g-strings I like to think my long term career lies in writing.
And the career millstone for every writer is…
At the beginning of the year I was asked to write a toy manual for Maple’s first collection of high end ‘personal massagers’.
A manual which would come with every toy and sold all over the nation, in our 40 + stores.The first person I called was my dad…
Dad I’m going to be an author!” I squealed.
Of what!?” he said.
A vibrator manual!!” I continued to tell him as many details as I could until I ran out of breath.
He gave me the classic dad response:
Well I better make room for it in the glass cabinet…next to the poem of the trees you wrote in year three.
Two months of editing later the toy manual was renamed the Pleasure Guide and turned into a 19 page glossy pamphlet about our luxury range of playmates.
When the fever hits you can now experience mind blowing thrills at your fingertips.” – Miss P.
Okay so it’s not exactly a novel. But it is a sashay in the right direction.

To celebrate the new toy range we held a launch at all of our flagship boutiques!

The Maple girls dressed to the nines to present our collection of pleasure to the masses.

After only a few moments of basking in the glory I was pulled behind the counter to play bartender to our VIPs. It didn’t take long before the champagne ran dry, lucky the Maple HQ boys had my back.
And the slender backs of our glamourous lingerie clad performers…

After the launch I went to the post office and divided one luxury vibrator into two smaller packages. I sent the Pleasure Guide pamphlet to my dad for his glass cabinet and the ‘personal massager’ to my mother to use as a ‘back massager’. A little gift to say thank you for all their motivational support and career advice thus far. Millstones no matter how small are life’s little incentives that motivate you to keep going, keep working even when you feel like you’re a breaking point. Sometimes you have to take baby steps in order to achieve bigger goals. Regardless of whether you publish a book or a pamphlet the most rewarding thing is a positive mindset, the belief in yourself.Did you get all that career girls? If I can do it then so can you!OTHER EXCITING NEWS:

Speaking of launches the new HOB website will be unveiled on the 1st of July. To celebrate I will be giving away a copy of the Pleasure Guide PLUS your very own luxury vibe to see you through the cooler months. Details on how to win will be posted soon.

The future is exciting!
