As an eyewear rep in California, I created my social media pages to network with new accounts and gain new business. After awhile, my Instagram account became much more. It has evolved to an extremely engaging audience of optometrists, opticians, eyewear reps, optical shops and optometry practices all over the country.

These followers trust my opinion because I only talk about things I believe in. I educate my followers on optical trends, technology and business best practices. Featured in the leading optical industry publication, Vision Monday, in July 2018 and part of the EyeStyle Influencers network, it's only just the beginning of California Glasses Girl.

HOWEVER, you can network and apply for jobs in your spare time, you can take classes to educate yourself for other jobs, etc, to work towards obtaining a new job aka changing your situation. However, I didn't realize until recently, how much my overall happiness effected my professional life. This Forbes article from November, discusses the happiness and success correlation and also lists 4 things you can do (from positive psychology leaders) to help you make your happiness a priority.

When Daylight Savings Time ends and sunset is before 5pm in Southern California, that means I’m spending a good amount of time driving at night. As I’m driving, I’m constantly switching from looking ahead, to my mirrors, to my dash and sometimes shifting my focus so often causes my eyes to get tired quicker, particularly at night. If you have a patient who spends long periods of time on the road commuting or otherwise, DriveSafe lenses from ZEISS could be a great recommendation to fit their driving vision needs. DriveSafe lenses cut down the glare from the headlights of oncoming cars and reflections from wet streets or street lamps while also offering unmatched clarity in poor light conditions.
