On Career

It’s only been a short time since I became a Mrs. and each day is more and more amazing.  Trust me, I can’t really tell you what it IS that is more amazing but it’s there and it’s very real.  Ok that’s not my point.  My point is that in making this pretty painless transition from Miss to Mrs. I am wrestling with the rest of my outside of the home life that doesn’t really match how I’m feeling or where I want to be going.

There are so so so many things that I’m passionate about.  Weddings, over course being the obvious, but I’m also in love with paper of all sorts, stickers, ribbons and stamp, baking, learning {slowly to cook} and helping others.  It’s amazing to me that in the short time we’ve been married my new, fresh and amazed take on my home life has shifted my perspective so drastically of the rest of my life.  I am not at all on a path career-wise toward where I want to go.  While the “goal” is nebulous and often changing, I can confirm with 100% certainty I’ll be very disappointed with myself if I stay on this career path. 

I’m a proactive person by nature so the obvious next questions is what to do?!  How to go?  I don’t want to jeopardize MB’s and my financial future by flaking and quitting my very well-paying full time job but I also know that what I want to do isn’t lurking in any of the nearby cubes. 

Do you have any advice?  Should I write a plan or should I just do my regular leap than look maneuver?

  1. You should start your own company. It’s something you can do even while you’re working so you don’t have to cut your good pay checks immediately. This allows you to figure out your business plan and products with very little risk.
