I am a Girl Boss!
I am Fierce! I am Strong! I am Driven! I am Determined! I am a Woman!
I have many plans, goals, and dreams that I am working on achieving. I have an amazing job at a library where I shelve and process books, I am a freelance writer for a startup company, and I have an idea for an Etsy business. I still have plenty of free time to work on my novel and a couple of coding projects that I’m starting to develop. I have a family that loves and supports me. I graduated college Cum Laude with a degree in Creative Writing. I have some student loans but they’re manageable. And I have an amazing boyfriend who not only puts ups with my craziness and shenanigans he also supports my dreams and goals. The best part about all of this?
I decided I wanted it and I worked to get it!
I fell in love working at libraries when I needed to get a job to afford going to college, which is also where I met Adam, and gave me the experience to get the library job I have now. I decided I was going to get a degree in Creative Writing and through that I came up with the idea for my current novel and learned the skills that got me the freelance writing job. I grew up with the belief that I could do anything I set my mind to and it has led me to see opportunities for businesses and computer programs and apps. I am frugal with my money and have saved almost $1000 in a month which moves me one step closer to being independent. I found my passion in life and decided to pursue it. I took the leap to apply to the two jobs I have. I found a second passion at school and am using it to make my life and the lives of others better.
I know that there are still many challenges that I will face in these next few years as I discover the path my life is taking, but every step of the way I will be in charge. I won’t let my fears of failure (or success) get in the way, or the idea that I need to follow the traditional route of getting a “real” job to be independent make my decisions for me. If something in my life isn’t working, then I am the one that decides to change it. If I don’t like where I am, then I work to propel myself to where I want to be. No one else knows me like I do and if I don’t like something then I am the only one that can truly make it better.
I am the author of my life, I am the one that decides what makes me successful and how I go about achieving that. I am a girl (woman). I am a boss. I am a Girl Boss and I won’t let anyone tell me otherwise!
