Tell us your bold boss story!:
Above all, I am an author. I have been working on creating stories for over ten years, but have yet to publish my work yet. I jumped head-first into creating my author brand online a little less than a year ago. I was finally ready to take the plunge and make my dream happen! I had been working a full-time job at home but the hours started to become too demanding. I was also a full-time work at home mom. It was all too much. I decided to quit my job and become a freelancer. I did this last September and since then I have been taking jobs as a ghostwriter and content writer. That's how I make my income for now until I become published and start selling my work. Now, I run my author business where I blog about my journey and provide tips to my readers. I also promote my freelance work.
What most inspired me to really take the plunge into becoming published was my son. He was born in November 2017 and I want to set a great example for him. I want him to know that if he has a dream, he should strive for that, whatever it is. I need to live by this in my own life! So, that's why I got started!
We're all about bold boss moments, tell us about one of yours!:
I created my own website by myself. I am not technically savvy in that sense. I was intimidated about creating my own website. I didn't have the funds to hire someone. Plus, I wanted to make it into something authentic to me. So, I created it! I did use some great tools and watched quite a few YouTube tutorials. In the end, I created a website I am so proud of. I look at it and can't believe I did that myself.
What advice or words of encouragement do you have for the #GoingBold community?:
Don't let anyone hold you back from pursuing your goals. There will be people that bring negativity to your ideas. You don't need those people. You don't need to listen to them. We should never deviate from our dreams because of other people. Find people who will support your dreams. We can literally do anything we set our minds to. So go out there and do it! You'll only regret it if you don't try.
