Your self-directed employment assistant
If you were to ask every person that has made it big in the world through their career, I assure you that they would have a story to tell you about the person that made it possible for them to achieve their success.

Due to the release of these blogs, this one takes place in the past, not in the present as I had intended. I wanted to keep the authenticity of the moment, yet again :)

I will let you in on a little secret: I have always wanted to have a blog. I truly enjoy writing what is on my mind and sharing it with others. Not only is it therapeutic, but if I can help others by what I have to say, then that is a remarkable feeling.
