Two years ago I retired the Skeptic Yogi (a blog you so graciously subscribed to. …Thanks for that!) because it was time to stop introspecting and start living in the reality that was happening around me. Since then, I’ve created one business, purchased and sold another, and almost completed a graduate degree. Not bad for soul-searching yogaphile like myself, eh?
The past two years have been an amazing journey for me, but alas, I find myself at yet another turning point (they never seem to end for me). Since selling my last business, and now that my few remaining grad courses are part time, it’s created space in my life for a new focus, and for once, I’m pretty clear on what that will be!
I’m combining my love of social media, my deep connection to psychology, and channeling these passions into what I’ve done for the last 13 years…. marketing. More specifically, I’m looking to get into cause marketing. Call it the intersection of promoting big business while contributing to a higher good. Whether that is in an entrepreneurial context or full time employment is less important to me than it was two years ago when I set out to leave the corporate world behind. Making an impact in the most effective way possible is more the focus. As for the entrepreneur in me, she sleeps until the next big idea comes along.
On a personal note, marriage to my beloved “macro-beau” suits me very well. We moved to SoCal last year, a decision I’m still trying to get comfortable with. The best parts of our move were a new addition to the family, (Snickers – he’s the Chihuahua) and the investment of our second home. We recently bought a lake house, which inspired a need to explore interior design sites. This led to a creative blogging eCourse that I recently signed up for, which led to an exploration of the kind of blog I would most love to author, which led me back here. I loved this blog and the community it created. So because the wonderful world of technology is so malleable, I’m back.
Ironically, I think I stopped enjoying writing the Skeptic Yogi when one of my readers coached me to become less about myself, and more about the reader in an effort to lean into entrepreneurialism. I think this was the beginning of the end for this blog. It lost it’s authentic purpose – to explore and journal the experiences of my own evolution.
This time, it will be entirely about me, my life and how the experience looks from my eyes. This is what I find most intriguing in the other blogs I read and it’s what I think is most authentic about my own writing. I have other websites that revolve around others…. This one is just for me.
