Hello Beautiful Readers! How are you all doing? I know the “stay at home” rule has been lifted in some states but for those still in quarantine, how are you holding up? I live in Los Angeles, CA and the “stay at home” is still in place. Let me know what’s been keeping you busy these days and what you all are up to in the comment section. I didn’t know how to start off this article but I’m going to jump right into it.
Today I want to share something that’s been on my mind recent and I can’t seem to stop thinking about. I have a 2 questions for you. What was your dream job as a child or young adult? Did you end up taking that path towards your ideal career or did you take a different route? Feel free to leave your answers in the comments below. When I was 15 years old I knew I wanted to run my own business. I wanted to be that independent woman running a successful business. I’m 24 now and I still want that for myself today. After making this decision of wanting to own a business, the song that motivated almost everyday was “Miss Independent by Ne-Yo.” This song explained EVERYTHING I wanted to be. It’s still the song I listen to when I need a little motivation and when ideas for my business come to mind, along with the song “Boss by The Carters.” I did all I could to learn how to start a business and how to run it successfully. I also almost opened a business with an incredible friend of mine! But life happened for the both of us. She currently has her little side hustle now and I definitely recommend you all to check her out on Etsy her little shop is called “Ella Mineaux.” She sells all kinds of cute stuff like notebooks, coffee mugs and more!
I’m going to admit, at some point I did lose hope of owning a business for awhile. I felt like all my business ideas were impossible to reach due to my circumstance and I started doubting my leadership skills. So I started dipping into other industries like sports journalism and comedy (another thing I wanted to do at a young age but more as a hobby then a profession but I did try to make it a career at one point and maybe still am?) but that desire to own my own business never left. It was just hidden deep down inside me and resurfaced last year. I knew I had to take action.
From my pervious article one of the things I enjoy doing is making people laugh. I just absolutely love it! And another thing is, yes you guessed it, writing! Reason why I started a blog. I knew I wanted to write about things that matter to me and maybe help change the world a bit. What influenced me to start writing about topics that don’t have much light on them was “Someone Close” to me that I lost at young age and my dad. But that desire pushed me to take action and not look back. Let me tell you, I’m so happy I did. “Everything’s Otay!” is something I’m truly proud of and I absolutely love writing articles to share with you. I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon. There’s definitely improvement I need to make when it comes to blogging and so much more to learn and apply. To me, there’s always room for improvement. I hope to hear your story on what career path you chose and what motivated you to take action! I want to say, take your time. Don’t compare your progress to others. We all go at different paces and have different circumstances. Just remember to keep your head up and keep going (hard work does pays off). Write down your goals and make sure you take those necessary steps to accomplish them. Also, celebrate your successes! Big or small, they are an accomplishment. Don’t give up on your dream and DON’T GET COMFORTABLE where you’re at. Set more goals for yourself and achieve them. Remember there’s always room for improvement. Be the best you and be great! Don’t forget, everything’s otay 👌!
