I read this post today, courtesy of a Facebook share, but it really made me stop and think. The post can be accessed HERE and I would highly recommend reading it if you are contemplating a possible career change.
I have wanted to have my own business forever. I remember going on an interview when I was just starting out (like still in high school and I was about 17). The question was asked, "where do you see yourself in 20 years?" I responded, "I will own my own business." Of course that was the worst answer I could have given during the interview, but something that has stuck in my mind for years.
So here I sit, unemployed and looking for work. I have been exploring everything over the past few months, but nothing is that PERFECT job. Of course I know that work sucks, but there needs to be something out there that makes me love what I do.
There is... and I found it after my life changed in 2010. I love to crochet and make things... I like to make DIY crafts and projects. I enjoy making cards and candies. I must figure out a way to make what I love to do become my reality, my job. Like the post says, "Dreams don't work unless you do". I have my dreams, they have been with me all this time. Now I just need to work hard to make them come true.
