Download My 5 Insanely Easy Ways to Live a Little More Boldly Every. Single. Day.
I'm gonna get on my soapbox here for a minute and remind you that public school was created as a way to grow good factory workers.
(That's not a jab at factory workers...it's aimed at the people who want clones rather than individuals to work for them.)
We are indoctrinated from a young age to sit in our seats, face forward, be quiet and fall into line. Do what we are told, and for God's sake...just be normal.
I'm here to tell you that there is another way.
A way for you to live your life boldly, be successful and make money doing what you love - no matter what everyone else says you *should* be doing.
Long live the pioneers, rebels and mutineers... Go forth and have no fear.
This may sound far-fetched, but I'm in my early 40s, and I've only had four "real jobs" in my whole life.
I'm not even kidding...answered phones at a pizza place for a summer, worked at a factory for three weeks, worked front desk at a hotel through college, and worked as a producer at a local TV station.
The longest any of them lasted was two years.
Other than that, I did mystery shopping for awhile, sold stuff on eBay, worked semi-regularly as a substitute teacher... dang, when you look at it like that, it seems like I can't stick to anything.
Except I've been running my own business (mostly) successfully for 12 years.
I say mostly, because there were lean times, times when I was grateful for a husband who is good with money. But the fact of the matter remains that I've paid off more debt than most people have ever thought of having. I've made enough money to comfortably pay a good chunk of the bills, and have been successful enough that my husband quit his steady teaching job so he could follow his own passion.
I refuse to live my life by anyone's rules.
If I can do it, you can too.
