I’m so excited to announce the launch of my new website today, CorporateEscapeArtist.com! It’s been many months in the making and a personal passion project for me. The reason I’m so excited about this work is that I used to be THAT person—miserable in my job, going through the motions, focused on the external stuff like job titles and salary, and getting the energy sucked right out of me by trying to be someone else at work to be successful.
I DREAMED of being my own boss for years but I was afraid to step out on my own and could never figure out WHAT I wanted to do. I finally realized that I enjoy connecting with people on a personal level, mentoring, and most of all helping people grow personally and professionally so they can go beyond what they think they can do. After all, if we aren’t challenging ourselves, we aren’t growing. I would see all sorts of talented people, some who even KNEW what they would rather be doing, but they would talk themselves out of it—it’s not the right time, I’m too old, I don’t have the money, etc. etc.
After years of enlisting therapists and counselors to help me find my passion, it wasn’t until I got a coach that I had my breakthrough and now I want to help other people in the same situation. People that feel that they have to settle for a life that they aren’t really that passionate or excited about. I’m hoping that by stepping out and sharing my story that I can make others feel that they can do it too. I want you to know that if you have the desire, whatever it is, if you REALLY want it, you can do it—you CAN make the successful leap from employee to entrepreneur! The thing that is standing in your way is YOU.
I’m looking forward to continuing to share this journey with you and if you find yourself ready or almost ready to take that step so you can finally feel the freedom, flexibility and creativity you’ve been wanting—please reach out to me. After all, you can’t think outside the box if you’re trapped in one—be bold and just go for it!
