    That Time I Quit My Job

    I quit my job 14 years ago to become a full-time songwriter.​

    Just a year after graduating from college, 1 year after landing a good paying state job, and a week before my wedding day, I turned in my resignation and leaped (head first) into the world of full-time creative entrepreneurship. 

    I want you to imagine, if you will, the countless wide-eyed conversations I had with family members, friends, ex-coworkers, and myself.  Everyone thought I was totally crazy; and to some extent I was. But I quit. I followed my instincts, listened to my heart, packed up my career in social work and quit my job.

    Did I mention how crazy this seemed? 
    Okay, so did I mention how crazy I felt?
    Well, It did.
    I felt crazy and amazing all at the same time.

    Quitting a job to pursue full-time entrepreneurship is what people who have a crazy passion for serving, creating, making, cultivating, and building, do.
    We make things happen. 

    If I could travel back in time, back 14 years ago, I would give myself a list of 10 questions to ask before turning in that letter of resignation. Since time-travel isn't a thing,  I shared my questions over at The Social Society for someone who may be just like me... and ready to make things happen.

    Until next time, Love...


    "Pursue something you freaking love!

    And the process that it will take you to get it, will be worth it."



    Your Life Matters

    I pray the hashtag before your name is inspired by what you gave in life

    and not the taking of it...

    Hashtag or the absence of it...


    Your. Life. Matters.



    The Real Reason You Should Keep Showing Up...Everyday 



    I show up everyday expecting things to happen.

    The thing is: simply showing up doesn't guarantee immediate success. (Personally, I think it should- but I digress.)

    Doing your best doesn't guarantee you'll get noticed.

    Giving your all doesn't guarantee you'll be appreciated.

    Applying for a job doesn't guarantee  you'll get an offer.

    Submitting the proposal doesn't guarantee  it'll be accepted.

    Giving good love doesn't guarantee you'll get loved really good, back.

    What showing up does is position you.

    It puts you in line, it declares your expectations...

    Showing up in life, everyday, serves notice to what you want the most.
    It tells your dreams, your hopes, and your aspirations that you really want it AND that you are willing to do what it takes to get it- even if that means waiting.

    No, showing up does not guarantee your immediate success; but not showing up at all guarantees your failure.

    So... Keep showing up, get in position, and wait.

    Your time is coming.
    You'll get there if you don't give up.



    Until next time, Love...
