Less than three months after starting a new job in late 2007 I couldn’t believe how bored I was. After my fairy godmother - Oprah, came through my tv one afternoon and asked a simple question, “Are you living your best life?”, I knew right then what I had to do.
In January 2008 I tendered my resignation to break a two-year contract and opted to stay for just one year. I remember telling one of my closest friends my intention while driving to lunch one day and with parental nervousness, she said, “If you don’t have a job, what will you do?”
I left in September 2008 with an idea of what I wanted to do. In March 2009, I officially became a business owner, and on May 15 2009 I signed the lease to my office. In between that day and today I’ve had countless challenges, ups and downs, tears, a few phones flung across the office, some banging on my desk, but I would do it all over again in a heartbeat for the trail that my creative agency, Branes PR, has blazed.
I’m having a glass to celebrate the past and to plan the future. Cheers to you and your journey and knowing that your path is just that - your path! Celebrating #entrepreneurs and
