fresh face friday – meet me!

You didn't ask, but I answered. This week I’ve interviewed myself to provide a little bit of insight into our Fresh Face Friday posts!

how my role elevates lululemon?

I help attract and retain amazing people to lululemon every day. From exposing lululemon's freshest faces on Fridays to having an inspirational phone conversation about our newest would-be colleague, I contribute to magnetizing our future leaders and innovators every day.

something unique or surprising about me?

I collect anthologies, collections and dictionaries etc., of quotations. I have been collecting quotations since I was 16 and struggle to find the space for them in my Gastown apartment. I gather inspiration, advice, wisdom, and of course humour from our greatest recorded thinkers.

what gets me up in the morning ?

This guy, with tail wagging and tongue out!

the most beautiful place I’ve ever been?

When my best friend Maura up and moved to Bermuda I was originally a bit put out. But two fabulous trips to visit her later I have never been more convinced of paradise. Bermuda is home to some of the most beautiful and diverse beaches in the world & has a cultural history to match. Although I will be happy to have Maura back in Vancouver, I’m hoping to squeeze one more visit in before she comes home.

a goal I’ve achieved that I’m proud of?

My goal of the year was most definitely scoring my role as the lululemon athletica Attraction Ninja. Combining my creative abilities with my lust for a good joke, I wowed my interviewers with a circa late 80s marketing spoof. My only failure was my inability to execute more than 50% of the campaign before uncontrollable laughter set in - I blame my current manager who lost her composure at least two slides before I did.

why I love working at lululemon?

At lululemon I have the opportunity to celebrate my strengths, follow my goals, and most fantastically, exist as I am. Unlike many friends I know who lead a TGIF lifestyle I enjoy the privilege of anticipating my Mondays. At lululemon you don’t sludge through a 40-hour work week to make your living - you exist, create and develop for the intrinsic joy you feel as a result of your contributions to the whole as well as your own growth and development.

my biggest passion?

Whenever I see a flat green field or an open expanding trail I think of riding. I have experienced nothing more elevating than galloping across an open meadow – I think it has something to do with the complete joy radiating from the animal beneath you. Although I am currently on a lifestyle -induced hiatus (city life) from regular interaction with the beloved four-legged masterpieces, they will always be in my heart.

what do I want to be remembered for?

The best quotation anthology of all time. I’m not even joking. I’m thinking of doing a little coffee table number filled with tidbits of inspiration, joy & and wisdom. Personal goal: to avoid creating a toilet reader.

If you feel passionate about developing yourself and elevating the world you might want to consider aligning your talents and your livelihood. Live your Monday to Fridays to have fun, exist and develop and not just to survive until the weekend. Find out if your skill sets and career path align with any of our current possibilities on the lululemon careers page.

Gosh this was a beautiful post Rebecca. Is it weird that I got sort of choked up? Your passion for work, and life, and clearly all that you do is contagious.

I just think your outlook is wonderful and more of us should be thinking along these lines. Unfortunately it takes courage to move away from the rat race and be who you are – I am in the process of discovering who I am and creating a working environment around this – keep your inspirational quotes coming, Rebecca
