I’ve come to a point in my life where I feel incapable of working for someone else. Maybe its because I’m a “challenge person” or maybe it’s because I’m a millennial. What ever it is, my step father told me growing up to find what I love, then find a way to make money out of it. I genuinely believe that this is the only way that I will find joy and fulfillment in my work. I am taking the steps towards working and creating for myself. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do but only recently have conjured the guts to pull the trigger.I’m passionate about a lot of things. I love creating art, painting and vectorizing. I love the process of creating videos and music. I love writing poetry, blogs and short stories. I love photography. I love… lamp? For the longest time I’ve tried pinning down the one thing that I love the most to make a business out of, but truthfully, I can’t abandon them all to do just one. So screw it, I’m going to do it all.
I believe that challenge is necessary for progress and that I’m at my best when I’m helping others to see things differently. I believe that my purpose in life is to challenge the world to think, feel, act and speak for themselves. My goal is to inspire people to look past their circumstances to see what they were created to do though the artwork that I create.
What I want to do is big. It’s going to take a lot of time, a lot of work and a lot of help. This is where I plan to reach out to those who believe what I believe and they are the ones that I will build my business around serving.
I’ve made too many excuses in the past about why it’s not time and why I can’t pull this off. This isn’t the example I want to set for my little ones. A part of why I’m doing this is to prove to them that what ever you set your mind to, you can acomplish.
All that said, there’s going to be a new freelancer in town! The “dream” included it all, but instead of starting up way over my head, I figure I’ll approach it at a steady pace.
I’ll keep whoever’s interested in my journey updated here with all of the other things I have going on.
