What did you want to be when you grew up? Does it match what you turned out to be? I wanted to be a 5th grade teacher when I was younger but then I made the surprising discovery that I wasn't too keen on spending the entire day with children that I didn't actually give birth to. So...the teacher thing went no further than that.
So I decided that I'd be a business chick. I knew I didn't want to be a doctor or lawyer so business it was and off I went to major in business in college.
Here's what was NEVER on my list :
I never really knew any business owners growing up. My family was made up of hardworking 9 to 5'ers. That was my example. ..it was what we did. Imagine my surprise when an annoyance turned into an actual company with a logo and checking account.
This year, I'll add "Author" to the list of things which define me and that has come as a surprise too.
The honest truth is this: while none of these things were planned, they have enriched my life in ways I couldn't imagine.
