  • Entrepreneurship: Turning Your Passion into a Career

    By Maria Jose Monti, Business Consultant & Executive Coach, Citi Alumni Network Member October 03, 2014 10:05 AM

    This post is part of a series inspired by Pathways to Progress, a Citi Foundation initiative that works with community partners, city officials and Citi employee volunteers to help low-income urban youth develop the leadership experience, professional skills and the workplace know-how they will need on their path towards college and careers. Follow the conversation on social media using the hashtag #Pathways2Progress

    There is no single path or silver bullet to becoming an entrepreneur. For me, the myriad of meaningful opportunities throughout my Citi career allowed me to gain the valuable skills and experiences I needed to take the next step in my professional life - opening my own business.

    My entrepreneurial story was years in the making, but ultimately materialized when I homed in on my desire to help others develop their leadership skills to improve performance and productivity and create better work environments. I channeled this passion into opening my own consultancy and have learned quite a few lessons throughout my journey.

    "There is no better way to celebrate our 200th anniversary than by honoring our history, embracing the future and working together to strengthen the communities where we live and work," noted Vikram Pandit about this year's Global Community Day. And in this year's Global Community Day effort, more than 100,000 volunteers spent 500,000 hours across 92 countries supporting 1,300 projects to help local communities. These volunteers lent their time and skills to local efforts including neighborhood revitalization, housing, disaster relief, environmental protection, donation drives, and financial education and literacy.

    Citi alumni also took part in Global Community Day. As part Citi's Alumni Network, an extension of Citi's global employee network, alumni were able to join Citi colleagues on this special day. The Network provides an opportunity for former Citi colleagues to stay connected with Citi and with each other. Many organizations participated in Citi's Global Community Day effort in Guam -- children invited to the events played games, ate sweets, went rock climbing, and participated in other entertaining activities. Citibank country business manager Agustin Davalos described the event as a way of celebrating the future.
