Today is a big day for me! Today officially begins my journey of being a full time blogger and social influencer! Last Friday, I walked out of my job that I had for almost 12 years and walked into the world of being my own boss. YES! While this was a super scary move and a move that will have our family really re-evaluating our spending and wants I am feeling a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders as I write this.
I have enjoyed being a writer and influencers since 2009 when I started this blog, I honestly had no idea it would take me this far but after a year of a lot of stress at work and my blog really ramping up, I had to take a hard look at what I wanted to be. That golden question – “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Well, here I am, growing up into an author, writer, creator and #bosslady!
It does not seem real yet, just seems like a vacation for now but I have work to do. Currently, I am working on my schedule, I am a planner which means I have to have my days planned and my motivation ready. Once I find my routine, I know this will be a huge relief for both myself and my family. I cannot wait to be more present in the evenings and weekends for my kids and husband. No more working 40 plus hours at the office and then coming home and working another full time job as a blogger!
I am excited to share this journey with you all and honestly, with out you all here I wouldn’t have this opportunity! This experience of making that really hard decision to put in my notice let me see that it is so important to follow your dreams and take chances in life. You wouldn’t believe how many people have told me they are jealous of me running towards my dreams. How sad is that? I would never consider myself a motivator but please, look at your dreams and try making them a reality. Life is short. Don’t dream forever.
For those of you that already work solely from home, please share your tips and experiences with me.
How do you balance your day? How do you stay focused on the work that you need to get done?
