I Quit My Day Job To Become a Full Time Blogger

I have some HUGE news to share with you all. As of yesterday, I will no longer be teaching. I quit my day job to become a full time blogger. This is a decision I did not take lightly, and I have a million emotions running through me right now.

Watch my video to hear my story. I go over the story of my blog, my career, where they intersect, and how I got to where I am today. I’m keeping the text at a minimum today because the video is long. Hope you enjoy!

Like I said, this is a new chapter and I have a long way to go. Again, thank you so much for your support over the years. I can’t believe this is real life.

    So excited for you. I did the same thing almost 3 years ago and it was the best decision I ever made. I love what I do, I’m much happier. I love having the freedom and being able to create my own schedule.

    Happy Birthday and Best Wishes on your leap of faith! I’m a newish follower (about a year) and I still love all of the content! I especially appreciate the dupes since I can’t afford high end prices for every skincare and makeup product I use – I have to pick and choose. FYI, started following you through Veronika’s Blushing.
    Have a great week!
