I’ve had 2 paths laid out in front of me for awhile and I had to make a decision about which one to take.
The first path involves going back to a job that I am not sure I can even handle. It’s a safe choice in some ways. I know the in’s and out’s and I’ve been managing for six years.
I loved my job for a long time, and then my body started to fight against me. A couple surgeries later and I decided I need to find another way out.
I’ve always loved writing, so I looked into jobs I could do from home. After sifting through hundreds of jobs that I was either unqualified for or had ridiculous expectations I almost gave up.
Then I saw a job listing for a copywriter, honestly I had no idea what that even was. Then I started reading and realized I already had the skill set needed.
I’ve been into marketing for years, but not professionally. I’ve helped my mom with her business and it’s something that really interested me.
So I said fuck it, let’s dive in head first. Still going to write for fun and mental sanity, but it will be good for me to use my mind to make money instead of my back.
I am finally going to write for a living and I couldn’t be happier.
I do want to take a short pause here and thank my wife for always supporting me. She’s been reading my writing for almost 12 years.
She’s always told me I should write for a living, and she has supported every endeavor I make.
I have her reread my stuff all of the time, honestly I talk about my writing and whatever else is in my head non stop. She’s a saint to put up with me.
I know she will read this because she reads every post I write as soon as it shows up in her inbox.
Thank you Kate for always believing in me and putting up with my extroverted ways.
Also thank you to all of you who have supported me, it means a lot.
I’ll be posting again soon with more details, just have to finish up with a couple of things.
Thanks again, hope you’re all safe and doing well, have a great day.
