“The person most likely to be a millionaire by 23”

I’m 24. That is what I wrote about myself in my Primary School leavers book lol. Gotta love the confidence

Im a big believer in “if your not happy, leave” and that goes for everything! Its also no secret that Im a university dropout. It was a path I didn’t feel right on and a course I just really wasn’t enjoying. So I came home a little disappointed with myself, degree less and to no job or car and I was broke as hell lmao but the worst part was I felt lost and pretty directionless. The only certainty I had was that I enjoyed Marketing and was pretty good at it. Why I didn’t just get a degree in Marketing I don’t know. But guess what? its been the most beneficial decision I’ve ever made.

 

The only right path is YOUR path

Now I really salute every single person that sees it through and gets there degree. Though I also salute those who find another path. University isn’t for everybody, I believe that 100%. To think that you have to have a degree to get somewhere in life is very small minded but I understand the pressures of society and your environment. Now I do think everyone is capable of getting a degree, if they put their mind to it but I just don’t think everybody needs to. My humble opinion

Law of Attraction

Anyway fast forward a year and I really spoke shit into existence. I work full time in marketing (chosen over a graduate by the grace of God) Im part of the team at Ego Ent, I have launched this site and im no longer broke! Okay I’m semi broke due to a spending addiction but thats for another story. Now I am not delusional lol, I am absolutely no where near where I plan to be in life but I’m somewhere. I’m also wayyy closer than I was this time last year and as I say on my birthday each year ‘every year better than the last’ and it really is. Growing and Glowing!

Most importantly though mentally, I am so much happier and stronger and lets be honest, that’s whats really important, cause seriously ‘how you gon’ win when you aint right within?’  you aint.

 

Your dream or theirs?

Now I definitely do not plan to work a 9 – 5 for the next 40 or even 10 years of my life and that’s no shade towards those who do, I’ve just never been that type of person. I want to create things and help people in some way or another and I don’t think I can do that behind a desk working towards someone else dreams.

Even though I have a plan, I really have no idea where I’m going to be in 5/10 years. Do any of us? But I do know the type of woman I want to be and I know God has got me. So for now I’m going where my heart takes me and I hope you all join me on this beautiful journey we call life.

 

Are you on your path?

    “Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.” – Paulo Coelho. There is a reason why he is my favorite author and there is something in your post that remind me of this quote from the Alchemist.

      Wow! That is so crazy because I love him too. I’ve read The Alchemist and Eleven Minutes uncountable times! Guess he stuck with me more than I even knew 🙏🏽

    Girl! Thank you for this! I got my degree but have chosen to taken a lesser paying job so that I can try and build up my blog and eventually be able to work from home full-time. If I’m being honest, I just want to be a stay-at-home wife that runs a successful blog (or 2). I can’t tell you how many people have turned their nose up at me after hearing my plan and tell me that I’m wasting my time and my abilities. I’m just not someone who wants to be on the rat-race of chasing money. I would rather make less and be happy! So thank you for reminding me that it’s A-Okay to feel that way and that I should just live my truth and do what makes me happy! xo

    Yes girl! I’m with you 100%! I don’t believe in quitting. I believe in following your heart! I think my family thinks I’m lowkey crazy sometime…not settling for a 9-5 (no shade thats just not what I want) but that can’t deny that I am a thousand times happier now than when i had an office job.

    xoxo

    I love this, following your own path is amazing and I totally agree that school is not for everyone. I say if you find something you love that is not school, run with it!

    Love it!! I’d rather be happy creating content and putting my time and effort into something that makes me happy. I mean thank God for 9 to 5s, but it’s not for everyone. This was a great read!!
