Lately, when I have a moment to think, the same thing pops into my mind: marshmallows. No, this isn’t another article about my obsession with food. Although fittingly, I have to put an almost herculean effort into not eating marshmallows if they’re in my eyeline. But if you want to dive into that rabbit hole,... Continue Reading →
I’m not sure about everyone else, but in my family, quitting your job without a “backup plan” (aka not having another job to go to) is something you just don’t do. Having a job is far more important than whatever fulfillment you get (or don’t get) from that job. I was trained early on that you could quit… as long as you had something stable to fall back on. I used to believe this too. I used to think that it didn’t matter if I was miserable at my job, I was lucky I had one at all.
Let me introduce you to the biggest lie I tell myself: “there’s no point in doing it when I’m not feeling it, I’ll hold off now and wait until I feel motivated.” And I tell it to myself over and over...and over.
Ok, I get that I’ve made it clear that I’m not into the 9-5 thing and that I will do anything I can to avoid going back to that place. But, there are plenty of people that I’ve talked to who want nothing more than to be employed somewhere that a name-tag is not required, but who aren’t ready to strike out on their own. I understand that. I was that person a little less than 3 years ago.
I’m not going to mince words here: the unwavering belief you have in 'self-evident truths' is a complete trap.
With a list of 23 goals (and counting) for 2018, I’ve got achievement on the brain. So today, I’m going to walk you through how to achieve anything and everything you want...as long as it’s physically possible.
If I had a dollar for every time a friend said to me: “I’m really not sure what I should do next with my career. All I know is that I’m not happy now...I think I should go back to school”, I would be a VERY rich woman.
When I graduated from University, I would have done ANYTHING to get a 9-5! Working shifts at retail stores, never having a holiday off, and having my income largely determined by the whim of the cruel shadow society known as “Head Office” had me feeling real bitter.
So, if you know anything about me, you know I have plans. BIG plans. My goal is to become a successful serial entrepreneur. And, before you start dramatically rolling your eyes and thinking: “ok, so she’s some kind of lady start up bro? Is she going to start telling us about synergy now…or like, swiping money from orphans with her corporate depravity?” know that I’m not a Wolf of Wall Street wannabe.
