Throughout my career, life has given me a lot of opportunities. It was very unexpected in most cases. So always I had to be curious. As an example, I want to share the story of how I became a team-lead.
I was 23 years old. I got an invite to an interview, where I met a man named Alexander, who wanted to open his website development agency.
He just started a business. So he recruited people for various positions. We discussed the front-end developer position. In general, we had a good conversation. We agreed to pause for a couple of days.
During this time, I received a few job offers. Generally, I wanted to choose another offer because I was confused that the company was new.
But one day, I was doing household tasks. Suddenly the phone rang. It was Alexander. He asked if I was ready to start working. I don't know why, but I answered "Yes". We agreed to meet.
On the day of the meeting, I came to the designated place. I met the people with whom I was supposed to work. Alexander made an introductory speech. He said I will be the team lead at the end of his speech.
I was surprised. But I didn't show it. When everyone left, we talked. He said: "You have enough experience. Just try it. I trust you"
I don't know how I didn't refuse. I was just in shock. When I came home, I felt a lot of doubts. But I thought “Why not?“
After several years I've understood it was one of the best decisions. I got experience in leading people, hiring, projects planning, etc. But the main thing is I got the startupper mindset.
If I said "No" I don't get that. I wouldn't start my business. So you should be ready to say "Yes" when life will give you the opportunity.
