Do you want to be safe and good, or do you want to take a chance and be great? --Jimmy Johnson
I've always been more of a safe and be good kind of person. As much as I like to say I'm not, I think I have taken fewer risks in the name of security.
Almost five and a half years ago, I started this website and decided to try my hand at life coaching as a side hustle to my full-time job in education. Although I had some wonderful clients, I wasn't building it as well as I had hoped and I let it go a couple of years ago.
I always wanted to write a book and so I worked on revising and editing essays I wrote for various online publications. It took me two years to put together my book because I continually started and stopped.
I finally got serious when (with the complete support and encouragement of my awesome husband) I walked away from education in December 2018. It was time for me to pursue this writing bug once and for all.
I finished and indie published my book on May 1. You can buy it HERE. I'm writing more consistently and submitting pieces to more online publications. Today, one of my pieces was accepted into The Startup (an online publication of 455,000+ followers). You can read it HERE.
While I'm not writing full-time, I am giving myself more opportunities to be both accepted and rejected.
I'm giving myself a chance to be great!
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
