I have to be honest… the whole “You’re a slave if you have a 9-5” narrative is getting old! Yes, I understand that being your own boss is liberating and rewarding – as it should be! But one thing that is often forgotten is that entrepreneurship isn’t for everyone. That being said, I don’t think it’s wise to give 20+ of your best years to a company that can barely remember your name either! If you have a passion in life, GO FOR IT! Does that necessarily mean that you have to quit your job? No, absolutely not. In fact, there are many benefits that come with having a good ole’ 9-5: a steady pay check, and more freedom to express your creativity without the stresses that entrepreneurship brings. Yes it can be a lot, but anything worth having isn’t easy! When it comes to walking in your purpose and handling your business, you’ll find a way. I often get asked how I’m able to balance my career with being a blogger and author (my two passions); here’s how… Continue Reading

Then you write them down and wait until January 1st to go after your goals.
Ever liked someone and they suddenly vanished out of your life without warning? You two talk pretty much every day, have gone on plenty of dates, and become close. This person really has the potential to be your next boo thing; and then all of a sudden POOF! They’re gone, suddenly evaporate into thin air like a ghost, with no rhyme or reason. I call this ghosting or being ghosted, and it can happen to any of us – no one is safe. As with many of the things that can go wrong when it comes to dating, being ghosted is another risk to add to the list. And although the idea of it happening to you may seem mortifying, the person that’s ghosted you may have done you a favor. Continue Reading
Life is a beautiful thing. One thing is for sure, nothing is perfect and nothing is guaranteed. So many things can happen, so many things can change. With that being said, why do we make things difficult by having so many expectations? Are you still waiting for that guy that keeps playing games to change? Do you wonder why that one friend is never truly excited for you? Does frustration take over you the minute you think about how hard your new job or school has been?
