Becoming my own boss was the scariest but most rewarding thing that I have done so far in my life. I have been my own boss for about 2 months now and it has been CRAZY AWESOME. It hasn't been all roses though. I have been the busiest ever. Literally traveling non-stop and trying to keep up with my blog has been challenging. But I am definitely working on getting my schedule together because this is what I wanted. This is what I dreamed of for so long. I remember when I worked full time and longing for the days I could work for myself. I remember the days when I didn't even know it was possible to be an entrepreneur, but it happened for me and I am so so happy!!
Last week, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Ahyiana Angel of Switch Pivot or Quit podcast. I am a huge fan of this podcast so I was super excited to be interviewed.
