This month's winner is Jacqueline Seabury Mitchell from Brookline, Massachusetts. She'll receive the Aravon shoe prize from our April 2009 issue, which includes three pairs (a $450 value) of Aravon shoes, specially designed with input from podiatrists to support your feet through every step.
"A few months after being laid off from a job I loved, I thought I found my new dream position. But during the interview, my gut was screaming at me not to take the job. I didn't get the right vibes from the place or people, and I wasn't even acting like myself. However, the title was so glamorous that I accepted the position anyway. I lasted five months; the role was all wrong for me. I've since learned to follow my gut when it has something to say. I now have an amazing job that pays nearly twice as much."
