We had the good fortune of connecting with Myca Harrison, MBA and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Myca, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
When I graduated with my Bachelors Degree I quickly realized how much I enjoyed anything related to English & Business. Fast forward a few years later when I graduated with my Masters Degree, I knew I wanted to take things to another level and embody what my graduation cap said, “Wandering Free with a Masters Degree.” I decided to turn my hobby and expertise into a business to genuinely help people achieve developmental gains through guidance.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Being a resume writer and career empowerment coach has afforded me the opportunity to touch the lives of hundreds of people which truly gives me fulfillment. Something as simple as a resume is often a pain point for so many people but with my expertise, I make the process understandable and instantly serve as a confidence booster for my clients. Not only do I create/revamp resumes, I also help with job interviewing techniques, LinkedIn creation/revamps, dressing for success, cover letters, and a host of other career related services. Starting my business was extremely frustrating at first because I had the vision but birthing it efficiently while still being a full time employee was a challenge. Overcoming the challenges initially were successful over time but with any business, you will always have challenges but your attitude through them is what makes the difference. The name of my brand is very symbolic to me, let me break it down. The term pivot means to shift into a new strategy or drastically change by focusing on a different positioning tactic. Quest means a journey or effort in pursuit of a goal or mission. Put the two together and hence the meaning and creative thought behind the brand, Pivotal Quest Consulting. Changing lives one client at a time is my desired outcome.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my best friend was visiting Atlanta, we would have a host of fun things to do! We would start off with a morning workout at Stone Mountain Park, then catch Brunch and live music at a spot like Folk Art or Negril Village with bottomless mimosas. After that would would venture to something educational like the National Center for Civil and Human Rights Museum. Along with educational you have to add something fun into the mix, so White Water Rafting would definitely be next on the agenda to get that adrenaline rushing. Rest is always essential after a fun filled day, so naturally a nap would be next. Anyone who knows me KNOWS that I love a cute nap LOL! Once refreshed we would get dressed and head out for a night on the town with dinner at Imperial Fez enjoying cocktails, music, Indian food, and belly distancing.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’m super thankful for the support of my family!
