As career women in the digital age, we’re constantly on the go, ticking off tasks from our to-do lists and moving to the next one as quickly as possible. But sometimes it’s important to take a step back and recognize what you’ve accomplished, especially if it’s a milestone like getting a big promotion or finishing a major project.
Successful entrepreneur and blogger Geri Hirsch of Because I’m Addicted, who recently sold her lifestyle video website LEAF, is a huge proponent of this: She fêted the occasion with a Baume & Mercier Classima watch.
“I obviously toasted with champagne, but I wanted to reward myself with a personal token of all the hard work too,” Hirsch says. “I needed something representative of it being a career accomplishment. A watch seemed like the ultimate treat to celebrate this fulfilling chapter.” Keep scrolling to read Hirsch's Q&A.
"Pretty much the biggest milestone yet—I sold my company LEAF after dedicating myself to it for years."
"This was a true labor of love, and I poured my all into this company. I wanted something that represented a career milestone and a serious accomplishment, so I chose a Baume & Mercier watch."
"It was a proud, guilt-free moment of pure joy. It was also an extremely empowering celebration as an independent woman."
"It’s for the same reason that I love buying mementos while traveling; it’s a permanent reminder of a great memory. I also truly believe everyone should treat themselves when accomplishing goals."
"It gives me confidence, self-worth, and happiness. Work isn’t always easy, so to see the fruits of your labor rewarded, there’s no comparison!"
