After being in the professional workforce for more than five years, I have made the executive decision to change the trajectory of my life. For the last three years, I have been searching for a purpose that adds value to my life in a colossal way. For nearly my whole life, my mindset has been:
- Go to college and finish
- Start a career
- Earn a Master’s Degree
- Get married
- Earn a Ph.D
- Have children
Somewhere between number one and number seven, my priorities and mindset changed. I learned early on that I needed a challenge that required more just being politically savvy in the workplace, which has often been the topic of discussion on thewritegirlblog.com. As a millennial and a keen observer of my peers, I increasingly became inspired by those who took a risk and plunged into the world of entrepreneurship for the sake of not settling, happiness, and fulfillment. The more I watched, the more I became convinced, that I have the ability and power to go in a direction that felt right for me — regardless if I fail or succeed.
I am proud to say that thewritegirlblog.com will deliver a culmination of content related to:
- Entrepreneurship and start-ups
- Current Events
As I write about these topics, I plan to share my journey as a (new) entrepreneur in the tech field. I will still deliver millennial advice related to career advancement, but my focus and platform is dedicated to entrepreneurship and technology that makes the world go round.
Thank you to those who have supported thewritegirlblog.com over the last two years. I hope you will continue to enjoy the content that is soon to come.
