The truth is, I have been blogging for years. I just never knew I could make a business of it until I attended a blogger conference in 2011. I went blindly, I really didn't know what I was getting into and I still didn't when I got home. I heard what all those speakers were saying, I talked to all those brands... but it isn't as easy as it looks. Blogging is hard work but it's so rewarding because it's all yours. The first time I registered a domain was in 1996, you could only do it at one place back then and it was $70 per year. In 2013, you can register a domain for a dollar. Having worked since I was 14 years old to holding down my favorite job for 18 years, I never imagined being my own boss. Never. But here I am today, celebrating a little over a year of making my first dollar and being so happy and so free.
My favorite quote that keeps me inspired daily:
"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." -Confucius
I'm totally not working in that picture at The Hobbit event. Best thing about being my own boss is obviously picking and choosing what I want to do. Two realizations about working for yourself that also relates to life in general: You learn to say no and you go for what you are worth. I didn't learn that from working all those years and I certainly didn't learn it when I was in college. If blogging isn't for you, Amway makes it easy to own your own business!
