Hello, and welcome to my blog! I’m glad you’re here.

I’m a newbie to the blogosphere and excited to share some content with you. This 60 Day Blogging Experiment was inspired by a Louder Than Words podcast featuring Seth Godin. The challenge Godin issued was to do something that makes you afraid every single day. I’ve always enjoyed the idea of writing but was terrified at the prospect of actually sharing my work. My goals for this blog are to (1) hone my writing skills and (2) use the fear of sharing my work to produce something helpful for other people.

Who am I? Great question. I’m still piecing that together myself.

Academics: I graduated from the University of Michigan after many sleepless nights finishing required readings and papers for my English Literature & Language and Communication Studies majors. Yes, folks, that does indeed mean I know how to communicate in English.

Profession: I am pursuing a career in marketing and advertising. I love how the Digital Age has made marketing more about solving customer problems and building relationships than it is about force-feeding product and service offers people could care less about.

Personal: I love nature, living and promoting healthy lifestyles, exploring my surroundings, pygmy goats, and understanding how and why the world works the way it does.

I would love to hear your advice, feedback and comments about my blog posts. Please feel free to reach out to me on the Contact Me page or connect on LinkedIn.
