Can we talk about this? 👀
There was a time for me when I cried a lot.
I'd come home from work, Caleb on the couch, and I'd just fetal position cry because I was so unhappy with my job, my mindset – it was just not a happy place. I felt bullied at work, and it was not a fun time.
So, I had to come to that fork in the road: do I continue this or find another option?
We were newlyweds, in a rental, figuring out married life – splitting bills and navigating the challenges.
Adding career stress made it very difficult for both of us.
I ended up quitting on June 1st, 2015 feeling excited initially, but two days later, panic set in. What did I do? How would I generate income?
Luckily, I had years of digital marketing experience.
I had been blogging since the Xanga days in the early 2000s, and my first big job was in digital marketing and design.
With a background in website development and digital marketing, I created a package to sell blog and website builds, marketing consultations, and more. In the first year, I offered these services online, and things aligned. I could meet virtually with clients worldwide. That was my introduction into offering services online.
And you know what? Knowing these skills helps me year after year for my own business, but also for my clients!
