Story

Tagline Doing my best to live, love, laugh, learn, and leave a legacy!
Introduction I'm a corporate sales professional turned writer. I decided to follow my love of writing and entrepreneurial spirit instead of the security of a employer's paycheck. It was the best decision of my life! I'm so much happier doing what I love!

Writing is an old friend of mine. We just were estranged for several years. I majored in journalism and began my career writing for newspapers and producing the nightly NBC news. However, my idealism left me for the security of Procter & Gamble's paycheck. I worked for P&G for seven years before spending another two years at Colgate Palmolive. While the money was great, the stress on my family reached its height when my husband left me to hold down a mortgage while he pursued his dream of medical school. We lived apart for one year while I clung to corporate security, before realizing that I was losing my family.

I then sold everything and cut the cord of fear of the unknown to change my life, and my perspective, forever. Now, I'm finally doing what I love most - writing, running, swimming, biking, learning, loving, building up my own businesses and taking care of my family. I now have the time to devote to squeezing every last drop of out this life possible!

And the best part? I get to help others find their inner fire to do what they love too. I have the best job in the world!
