Well this is the introduction to a new blog series I am starting called "Stepping Out of the Cubicle" to chronicle my journey over the next year as I move away from "regular" jobs and into jewelry as my full time creative business.

Throughout my life I have always aspired to find a career that I truely loved.  I frequently talk about how life is too short to spend it at a job we aren't comfortable in.  I want to be able to say that I am passionate about my work. I want to have something that not only supports my financial stability, but also my mental health.  I had a wide range of jobs over the past 10 years. Some of which were to follow my dreams, some of which were to pay bills. None of them could fullfill both of my needs.

I have quite a bit planned for the next year, and am hoping that all goes as planned; however, we all know that there are bound to be some bumps in the road. I am very optimistic that it will all work out, but either way these obstacles are sure to make a good story along the way.

I am hoping these stories are inspiring, will give you a better look at how a creative business is grown, some tips to have a successful business, and most of all share the ups and downs.  Starting your creative business is not all roses! Although most people are quite jealous of my hopefully soon to be situation, it's taken a lot of work just to get to this point, and will take so much more before I can ever say I do it full time.

My goal is to post about 2 - 4 times a month with just a brief update regarding not only how the business is going, but how I am feeling about everything as we approach such a big milestone in my life. So stay tuned!
