Taking a Leap of Faith


Dear Bella Diary-


I did it. 

Today, I announce to my peeps at “The-Large-Corporation-That-I-Work-For-That-Will-Not-Be-Named” that I will be quiting.  My last day will be around July 2nd.  I’d be lying if I said I was sad.  In fact, it was the complete opposite.  It was exhilarating.  It was empowering. 

I loved my corporate adventure.  I had the best Marketing mentors anyone could ask for.  They taught me to be innovative.  Learning didn’t end at my graduation.  No.  I can honestly say, I learn something new about Marketing everyday.  However, every minute I’m down at “The-Large-Corporation-That-I-Work-For-That-Will-Not-Be-Named” I think about this blog, social media and social networking.  I need to be doing what I am passionate about.  This little dove needs to spread her wings.

I will miss my friends at “The-Large-Corporation-That-I-Work-For-That-Will-Not-Be-Named”.  They were my family away from home.  I vow to keep in touch with them.  I need the Fashionistas (Especially you Ice Queen), Lizzard, Red Boots, Jangle, Queso {Sorry about that… a lot of those names won’t make sense to you guys}!  They keep me looking young and fabulous. 

So, what’s next?

I will be doing a mixture of things.  First, I will be doing eMarketing (Social Media, Social Networking, Community Management, Email, et cetera) with a Phoenix based advertising agency, Blender Creative.  Second,  I will be working part time on this blog.  Third, I will be doing eMarketing Contract work out of my home (Just set up my own company – eSocial Strategies LLC).  

We have some big plans for this little blog and it’s going to take another 6-12 months to get there (details to come!!!).  It is time for me to take a huge leap of faith and leave my corporate nest.


Wowza! Flash Face!

    Audree - how great, but sad for those of us who were just getting to know you. But life needs risks and we need to jump when those opportunities come up. Congrats! I look forward to chatting as I want to start doing some emarketing for hubbys business soon.

    Red Boots - You’re like the baby geese who jump from the ledge outside my window and land in the shrub below–chirping and yellowish-green with both little feet on the ground. JUST like that:)
