Okay, so not too long ago I decided that the only way I'm really going to be truly happy is WORK.
I want to find a career that I love and pursue it and put my heart and soul into it. Unfortunately I'm here in this town that doesn't value work. In fact, it values the lack of work. It values play.
Don't get me wrong, I love to play, but I want to work. So, I've dived head first into working. I've lost the need and desire to go snowboarding (maybe because I hit a plateau and get really frustrated with how badly I suck- but that's another story) so I spend my times when I'm not working my paying-job at the VC working on "small business" ideas and expanding my knowledge and whatnot.
I have a few requirements for my business:
1- I would like to be able to conduct business from anywhere, home-bases are nice, but not really my style. I'm a nomadic and antsy person, being in one place for too long doesn't work out. Although I do like to have a (couple) of place(s) to call home.
2-Creative CONTROL. I don't work well with others because, simply put, my way is better! So if I do partner up, I would have to choose very wisely.
3-Interesting media. I like to be challenged and I like to learn constantly. I want a business that will help me grow as a person along with my growing business.
That's about it. Obviously I want to make money, but that's not where my need to work comes from. I ENJOY being responsible for something, and since it's not looking like I'm going to be a mommy anytime soon, might as well become a career woman!
I'm going to take this jewelry design thing as far as I can, but I've found out in the meantime that I'm actually pretty good at simple graphic design and website building. So maybe some schoolin' is in my future again.
Wanna see my bad-ass bio I made?!?!
check out this link. I can't convert it to a blogger-friendly document type, as they will not accept PDFs
Okay, so that's about it for today's rambling. I'll leave you with some photos of my off season, just for aesthetics's sake...
