My mentor said this to me numerous times. She encouraged me to trust myself and what I was capable of achieving.

When I started as the digital marketing executive for an advertising agency, I had no idea the toll it would have on my life. When I was hired, I was supposed to be handling the website and social media marketing for the company. Within a few short months, I was taking on online ad sales, designing the online ads for the sales reps, managing digital accounts, as well as my own tasks. Simply put, I was overworked.

I would go to work every morning at 8am and would not get home until 7pm or later. Not only was I stressed, but I was spending less time with my family; which was the biggest issue.

I realized that I was missing out on so much of their lives and it was heartbreaking. The stress from my job also affected my mood and my health. It was just too much.

I needed an alternative.

As a digital media marketer, I was able to take a lot of online training and in-person workshops that allowed me to be well equipped in marketing and social media. My ability to teach new hires what I learned and how to put it into practice encouraged me that I would be able to do the same things outside of the workplace.

I was already blogging, but it was more of a hobby then. I began researching ways to work from home. I came to find that there were so many women who were rockin’ their blogs and making money.

I knew that is what I wanted to do.

Some people worked their full time jobs until their side hustle was able to replace their income. Thankfully, my hubbs believed in me enough to allow me to walk away from my job all together. And he could see the stress it caused me. He was more than happy to allow me the space to build something from my blog. Plus, he was glad to have me home more (or so he said haha!).

Leaving my corporate job was the best thing I have ever done.

Don’t get me wrong; this blog lifestyle is  no cakewalk. It takes a lot of patience and dedication. You have to be focused on your goals and your mission. Losing sight of that would cause you to lose period.

I still have late nights but my days are spent with my children; the best trade off ever.

There’s no greater feeling than working for yourself. My children are my motivation and my why. 

I left my corporate job for my family and my sanity. I no longer wanted to be the unhappy, empty version of myself. I deserved better. I was created to do more than sit at a desk for 8,9, or 10 hours. My purpose didn’t include dreading the work I do. I was created for more…. and so are you.
