Much like myself, this blog/site is also a work in progress. Being a full-time working, single mom of 2 toddlers (high energy BOYS mind you) who is trying to climb the corporate ladder, manage a house, those toddlers, and still have quality time to spend with my kids, family, and friends- it’s no secret- my plate is full and I’m juggling A LOT! I’ve had no choice, but to come up with some quick life hacks, extreme organization and some solid systems- it’s called SURVIVAL! I’ve also learned to take a major chill pill, recognize that life just happens and things will fall apart and when that happens all you can do is make inappropriate jokes with your besties, adjust, and continue on!
So why am I doing this? You are probably thinking that given everything I listed above I am probably crazy to even consider adding something else to my plate and the truth is, you are right- I am totally crazy- ask anyone that knows me well ;). The real problem is on top of being crazy, I also work for an amazing lady who is way too motivational and is pursuing what she refers to as her chapter 2, which is working towards her dream of leaving corporate America and having her own business (es) that tie to her passions and allow her to travel the world. I have a major case of FOMO (fear-of-missing-out for all you un-hip people) so it’s got me thinking of what would my dream life be? I don’t know yet, but I do know I love problem solving, I love helping people (hence my career in Recruitment), and love copying other people’s hot finds and in return sharing mine (working smarter, not harder). So, this is my first step in figuring out my “chapter two”. This doesn’t mean I’m also trying to leave corporate America- not yet anyways. I absolutely love my current company and in fact, I’ve got major goals to climb the corporate ladder and maybe even be an executive one day (very very stretch goal). However, I always like to have plans B, C, and D as a backup so if things change at my current company, I don’t necessarily need to start over at a new company. I want many many options and I want to control my own destiny :).
Please bear with me as I’m doing trial and error posts trying to find the right path for myself and for this blog. At first, I was going to wait to start it until I had my big picture completely mapped out, but I know myself and that would eventually lead to me never doing it. Now I am going way outside my comfort zone and diving right in head first. Thank you for reading this, following me, and supporting me. I am overwhelmed with the support I have already received and grateful for my “village”. If you see something interesting please share it! This will be a very grassroots approach. Please share with me your thoughts, ideas, or any comments. Thank you for being a part of my next chapter!
