In 2003 my life was turned upside down when I lost my husband in a car accident. He was 32 at the time and our kids were only 6 & 2. This is one of those things that you think only happens to ‘other people.’ The next 5 years would prove to be the most difficult years of my life.
I decided to go ‘all in’ with an online business in 2008. Even as a kid I knew in my gut that I was meant to ‘do my own thing’ (i.e., not have a job working for someone else). I wasn’t sure what that looked like and like many other entrepreneurs tried my hand a lot of different things. I found the internet and would love to tell you that the rest is history, but it’s been a journey. Some high highs and some low lows… but every day doing this has been better than any day a ‘job’
Prior to that, I had spent most of my adult working life in retail management (even if you’ve never worked retail, you know it’s not a great quality of life) and always wanted out. I felt stuck.
When I started my business my goal was to be an information marketer, yet somehow I ended up building client websites with WordPress, built a brand around WordPress (as ‘The WordPress Chick’) and found myself with an outsourcing company.
