Tricia Moving To A New City

How to Move to a New City (featuring Tricia Denci)

In this episode of Everything Speaks, Lee Caraher talks to Double Forte’s own Tricia Denci, who recently relocated from San Francisco to New York City. Tricia started her career with the agency as an intern eventually joining The Barn Group, a subsidiary of Double Forte focused on wine and artisan foods.

Lee and Tricia discuss how to survive your “freshman year of life,” how to build a life in a new city, and when and why you should shake up your career.

Key takeaways:

  1. Stay curious. In many industries, the more you learn, the more you realize there is to learn.
  2. It’s important to shake things up in your career every once in a while; but that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to find a new job. You can find new opportunities in your current company.
  3. If you’re doing a good job and you have opportunity, there’s no reason to leave your company. Don’t run from something; go toward something.
  4. If you’re complacent in your job you need to go.
  5. When you first move to a new city, expect it to feel like camping for a while.
  6. Put some boundaries around work so you have time to build a life in a new city.
  7. Your value increases as you stretch yourself into new experiences.
  8. You can’t be a fashion designer if you can’t draw.
