It’s been six years since I’ve written a single word on this blog! SIX YEARS!!

Today, the vast majority of my clients are local businesses …and I love it. I don’t get the “Oh wow!” comments I used to get when mentioning where I work and what I do, and I’m pretty sure most people mentally dismiss me before I even finish telling them.

Some people, when they hit forty, go through a mid-life crisis. Maybe that’s what happened to me. My crisis, if that’s what it was, didn’t involve buying a Porsche. It just involved stopping long enough to realize that I wasn’t happy.
Up until that point, I always did what I was supposed to do, or what I had to do. I went my entire career without asking myself, “What do I want to do?” And that simple question changed everything.
