Hi and thank you so much for taking the time to read The Chronicles of Carly. I started The Chronicles of Carly in late 2017 with the intention of sharing my experiences with the other go-getters out there. But before you binge-read my blogs, it is only fair that I tell you a little bit about myself first.
So hi, as you probably guessed, my name is Carly. I am a 20-something gal living in Brisbane, Australia. I have four-eyes, a caffeine addiction, and a severely grumpy cat. I have two day jobs (because apparently one wasn't enough); I am the Community Manager at Women in Digital (a dream come true!) and a Technical Consultant (fancy way of saying 'recruiter') at Digital Talent Co. with a focus on digital marketing roles in Brisbane.
It is no secret that I am very passionate about gender diversity which is why my role at Women in Digital is a dream come true. Working with the founder and CEO of Women in Digital, Holly Tattersall, our goal is to connect, educate and empower our way to diversity in digital.
I am a very lucky person in that I love my job (even when it has been a sh*t week). To me, as much as work-life balance sounds appealing, I am more drawn to a work-life integration setup. This could be because of my inability to turn my brain off and my incessant need to keep learning and striving for more. I studied a Bachelor of Media & Communications majoring in entrepreneurship at QUT and I hope to one day (soon) start the fun road of completing my Masters. If you want to know who inspires me in as the Queens of Work-Life Integration and general kick-assery than look no further than Emma Isaacs.

In my personal world, I was raised by my fabulous mum who taught me everything I know about money (and life). She raised my brother and me on less money than I am earning now (the fact that I felt we never went without amazes me to this day). Everything I am, from money knowledge and work ethic, come directly from witnessing her hustle when I was younger.
Anyway, that's enough from me.
