“People who lack the clarity, courage, or determination to follow their own dreams will often find ways to discourage yours. Live your truth and don't EVER stop!”
― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free
I have been waiting for SO LONG to be able to reveal this awesome news!! I have finally taken the plunge, left my full time job and decided to focus on Blonde Boss while working a fun part time job along with my occasional weekend gigs! Crazy? Yes. Worth it? Most definitely.
Some of you may think, "well I could never do that financially" and "I am too worried that I will fail" and you know what I have to say to that? Screw the doubts, you can do anything you set your mind to. Of course I am terrified, I like stability and knowing I will be getting a decent paycheck every week but its not worth being unhappy just to pay bills.
One morning (after several late nights working on BBM), I woke up not wanting to go to work and literally dragging my feet because I don't find ANY joy in what I do. I am not making a difference in anyone's life, I am not doing what I went to school for and I am not being compensated properly. I know, I am such a millennial but who else feels this way?
When I was a kid and people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I told them anything from a scientist to a fashion designer to a lizard (yes, that's right, i had quite an imagination - plus I always thought lizards had the life) but when I responded to this question almost every adult would tell me "you can be anything you want to be if you put your mind to it". Now, that may not apply to the whole lizard profession but I knew that no matter what goals I had in my head for myself, if I worked hard enough, I could achieve it. THAT DOESN'T CHANGE WHEN YOU GET OLDER PEOPLE!
Hardwork, dedication, innovation, responsibility, creativity and amazing people skills - THIS is how you are going to meet your goals. I am not saying you will just be handed opportunities - you will have to go out and get those yourself! Study your field, learn as much as possible and implement this knowledge with your own twist on it! This is something I plan on working on every day.
Now that I have announced my new venture - I am currently taking on new clients for Fall 2017! I work with small businesses all over but I am also open to working with individuals who just want to build their social media presence. In addition, I have add-on services for those who don't need help with their social media but need blog writing, press release writing, email blasts, newsletters and more!
Contact me today at firstname.lastname@example.org ! Even if it's just to talk, collaborate or network! I won't bite!
