Thank you for checking out my brand-spanking-new blog!! In celebration of the launch of this new blog, I hosted a Facebook contest to give away two new copies of my favorite inspirational books to one lucky reader:
Now, Discover Your Strengths by Marcus Buckingham
This fascinating book includes access to an online test to help readers identify their top 5 personal strengths. It then provides detail about those strengths to help readers better understand their motivations, goals, and how their strengths can best be leveraged to achieve personal success. I have conducted this activity with many teams I have led in the past, and have found the resulting conversations to be eye-opening and productive.
This motivating book provides a change in perspective as to how we think of work and making a living. It explores the many options available to move away from a rigid 9-5 job to building various income streams in the pursuit of greater freedom, flexibility, time, fulfillment, and income opportunities. I have referred back to this book and its updates several times over the years for inspiration as well as concrete ideas and steps for how to make my vision a reality.
Thank you to everyone who entered the Book Giveaway! I appreciate the participation and have made some wonderful new contacts and re-connected with old friends.
Now – without further ado – I would like to announce the winner of the giveaway:

To everyone else – thank you so much for your participation, and I hope you stick around to connect with me as I chronicle my journey from full-time Corporate American to independent freelancer. I will be sharing my thoughts and experiences on earning money, saving money, leaving my “regular” job, parenting, pregnancy, entertainment, and all of my other favorite topics.
Where to start? This is a good place – a post I had originally written many months before making my leap, but that continues to resonate with me today. Otherwise, you can learn more about me and my background on the About Me page. Finally, don’t forget to follow my blog with Bloglovin!
A huge congratulations again to Samantha! And thank you to everyone else for participating and joining me on this journey of learning and discovery. I can’t wait to connect with you!
