My first *new* blog post. Today, September 14th, a day before my 27th birthday, I am happy to launch my revamped blog and share the exciting news that – as of this coming Friday – I am no longer with a day job. Starting next week, my time will be split between running Light & Paper, and working for my parents and their two businesses.
For a long time, I’ve known that I wanted to be my own boss, and now that it’s finally beginning, I am so overjoyed (and only slightly sick with fear). I am lucky to be in a position where I can make a jump like this. I am also lucky to have enough of an impulsive personality to allow myself to make the move to something risky and fun – especially as the job that I’m leaving is one of those jobs that makes people say “you’re set for life” or “oh wow a pension!”
Over the next few weeks I’ll be building up my blog, Etsy, and main sites – and should have some exciting new designs and products to share. So! Please! Check back here for fun updates on my work, life, and various things that I think are cool. And maybe buy some Light & Paper stuff so that my dog doesn’t go hungry!
