For as long as I can remember my parents told me, “Find something you love to do and find a way to make a living at it.” At a very young age I took this to heart. I can remember making up 50-60 hand written business cards as a kid. I was willing to rake leaves, polish silver, untangle your jewelry–I was your go to for whatever job or project you needed done. I wanted to work!
Any time I hear a great success story I usually follow it up with, “What do they do?” I love hearing stories on how people got started in their careers. They have careers not jobs. Like Chris Rocksays, “When you have a career there aren’t enough hours in the day. When you have a job–time can’t pass fast enough!” Get a career.
And so began the idea for blogging. I’d always wanted to start a blog. But what would I blog about that hasn’t already been done by one of the other million bloggers? I love bargain shopping and running but type those into Pinterest and boom–thousands of articles from bloggers who have been doing this for years!
