When I've said that I've been feeling a change coming, this is one of those major things I was talking about. I've been dealing with being unhappy for a long time now. It's not necessarily the job itself, but a JOB IN GENERAL. I sit at this desk every weekday of my life and daydream about a different type of life. I try to work on other endeavors while I'm off, but even something as simple as a hobby is damn near impossible because when I'm not at work, I have mommy duties. When I don't have mommy duties, I'm at work. Sometimes those two things loop into each other. And when I have a moment to have a break from both all I'm trying to do is REST.
I thank God every day that I was able to land a great-paying job at a respected agency right out of college. I was hired before I even graduated, which was a huge blessing and I am very proud of that accomplishment. I was convinced that I was going to be the w…
The problem with social media is, people tend to give you mostly the good or the bad stuff that's going on in their lives, depending on the type of attention they want (or need).

I say all of that to say.. for the most part everything in my life is going well. I just got the last room in my house rented, and we are in the process of searching for another property to rent in Cali. Health insurance, all of that is taken care of. Money is no longer the huge issue it once was.
However, right now there is a major conflict going on in my head. I'm having a problem sorting things…
God knows it hasn’t been perfect, but it’s been way more exciting than the life I was living before.
Sidney and I are finally settling on a focus for our business and it looks like we will be moving forward soon. I’m very excited about the idea of having something that’s for US: Working our asses off for our family, instead of a boss or a manager at a 9 to 5.
What I’ve learned about starting a business so far is, the process is easier than it seems. Yes you have to have some money and yes it is a LOT of work but to start a small business doesn’t require as much money as one may think. Paperwork seems fairly easy so far. It’s just a matter of how big you want your business to be.
And let me tell y’all something about me: My goal here is not to make some ridiculous amount of money. I want a modest lifestyle. I just want to find something that A) we like to do and B) that the community we live in doesn’t have. Or something they have that we can improve on and do better.…
