I have always dreamed about being my own boss. About setting my schedule and working on something I love through the good and the bad, and in the end having that feeling of accomplishment for what I produce. Little did I know what that journey would look like. And I still don't. My brother did it, my younger brother always had such a talent and gift and he acted on it. He became his own boss and he has grown professionally and personally.
I've seen it with my own eyes and wanted it for myself. But how would I do it, how would I get there? Jesus inspired me to start drawing again. When I was younger I always used to draw. You should look at the doodles in my notebooks for class. In high school, I even started drawing a weekly comic in one of my classes, poking fun at a few friends. When the teacher was anything but interesting, I would see myself being carried away into another world. Conflict came because as a creative soul, I found myself dabbling in all sorts of things. Graphic design - my older sister and I were even self taught in HTML by middle school! I also am a singer, and when I was young I figured I had to choose one thing to be good at. You know, with everyone always asking what are you going to do when you grow up? You could never tell them multiple things, because then you lacked focus and were not going to be successful.
I finally decided to keep my path on business with a focus in marketing. I always knew I wanted to own my own business. I felt marketing was the creative side of business so I would be able to be as creative as I needed. And although marketing turned out to be much different, I still enjoyed it and the creativity I could impute into it. I enjoyed learning and understanding people and the way they work and analysis, I love analysis.
But that still didn't fill the void in my heart. I began my blog 4 years ago to have a creative outlet and share myself with the world. I love my blog, but it only became a partial filler to what I was missing.
When I began to draw again, something started to come out of me. Confidence and natural ability started to flow and I know it is all because of God. I trust him in every aspect and consult with him on every decision I make. It's so important to me.
Though I have only just started my own business, Spoonful of Faith, weeks ago, there is so much that I have learned and so much for me to learn. Every month, I want to do a Bossy check in here on the blog. I want to give you a glimpse in my life as it comes to my business, and where I am at with things. I want you to jump in my thoughts with me to see where I am heading. I want you to experience what things are difficult for me. I want you to take this journey with me and offer tips, advice, and support if nothing else. I want to share this process step by step, month by month and see this business soar!
What types of things would you be interested in for me to talk about?
What things do you want to learn?
What experiences do you want me to share?
I'm going to be an open book through this process and hope to inspire you, challenge you, and motivate you throughout the adventure. This will be a great journal for me to keep of everything Jesus has brought me through from the start and I'm excited to share it with you.
Thanks for listening to my story!
Have a great day!
