I wasn’t always this way. I used to bounce from job to job for the majority of my life, never finding that one thing that felt right. As a creative person, I would get bored of a job in about 6 months. Learning everything there was to learn about it and losing interest. I used to wonder how people could get up and go do the same thing every single day and be happy. I assumed something was wrong with me.
In 2008 I quit my job as a graphic designer and started making cakes out of a tiny duplex apartment with zero experience. I literally had no idea what I was doing. I’ve never been a very social person but I’ve never been afraid to start something new. All those years of chronic job quitting served me well there.
That single leap of faith has led me to the six figure lifestyle that my husband and I are living now. We both work from home (usually in sweatpants, hanging out on the couch) and live for making travel plans, spending time with our daughter and thinking of how to help others live their lives in a more fulfilling and profitable way.
I’m the type of girl that has to always be learning. I crave knowledge and need to be constantly stimulated. I should have known all those years of trying and failing at job after job was not a sign of weakness but a hint at my highest power. I’m not weak, I’m intensely curious about how the world works and how to make things work for me.
I used to think that my calling was to be just an artist and that’s why making cakes clicked for me but what I’ve discovered in the last ten years is that I’m so much more than an artist. I love owning my own business and being in charge of my own success. I love learning everything I can about something and then teaching that to others. I love inspiring everyone around me to not only pursue their dreams but to learn how to make them successful and profitable! Whether it’s making a pretty cake or how to build your own website and build a loyal social media following or just quit your day job and do what you love for a living.
I’m writing this from my couch, still in my pjs. I just had a “meeting” with my husband where we talked about the goals we have set for the coming new year, what fun projects I have planned for the day and what kind of ice cream I need him to pick up from the store. Yea… it’s a good life.
