This year, I’m especially thankful for doing work I love, the “ease” of being a Woman of the World (aka full-time entrepreneur) in the 21st century, and you.
So, when I started brainstorming a few months ago as to what I wanted to share as a Black Friday/Cyber Monday offering, it came back to the definitive how-to-plan-to-leave-your-day-job-without-having-to-live-on-Ramen-noodles guide I wrote in honor of my 2nd entrepreneuriversary.
More than anything, I want the things that I’m grateful for today to be the things you’re grateful for on Thanksgiving 2014.
I want you to not only believe that you can love what you do, but to craft a plan on how to do it based on your own grown-up values, needs, and preferences.
That’s why I’ve re-released An Effective Escape: Leaving Your Day Job Without Living In Your Parent’s Basement on Amazon, and offering it for a super low price ($2.99!Happy Hooplah
Earlier this week I revived an old blog series of mine, The Recession is Bullhonkey, and I plan on bringing one of these stories to you every month in 2014.
As I start planning for next year, I’m feeling more and more like it’s uber-important to get you real-life examples of people who’ve discovered/are working towards/are being successful in their passionate, grown-up careers.
I feel like spreading these stories is so key to actually having us believe that we can actually make a living loving what we do – and that’s the all important first step.Happy Hooplah
Talking about businesses.

l’ve been noticing that I’ve been getting lots of Who Do You Work With And What Do They Do For You questions coming my way via email, Facebook, Twitter, and face-to-face…and when I went to point ‘em to my People Who Help Me Do It All: Updated! post, I saw that it’s a year and a half old! That’s so no bueno.
So, here’s an overdue review of both the people and the platforms that currently help me do it all. It’s gonna be epic: you have been warned!
When she arrived: She joined me in August 2011 as my Virtual Wizard and a real Jill-Of-All-Trades.
How I found her: I stole her! Kinda. We were coaching together and I knew she was planning to leave her full-time job and wanted a super part-time gig while maybe-kinda-sorta considering being a coach.Happy Hooplah
