What makes your heart sing? 

Real talk. I’m 41 years old. By some standards, I’m young. By other standards, I’m old. I’ve been on the search as far as I can remember formsomething, anything that makes my heart sing. 

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a teacher. In high school, I wanted to be a pharmacist. In my 20’s, I wanted to be a missionary. In my 30’s, I didn’t know. I worked in 2 start up companies and a handful of dental offices. Throughout all of these things, I always liked writing, but I never had the confidence to pursue that. 

I’ve learned a few things. I’m not a team player. I work best independently. I’m more productive when I work on my own. I love helping people realize their dreams. Aside from being a pharmacist, everything that I’ve ever dreamed of being included helping people. 

In my 40’s I’ve dabbled in MLM’s. I was a Beachbody coach and a Direct Cellars rep. I learned that I love to workout, though I’ve been on a hiatus since Thanksgivng.  I love wine…and I love working for a company that helps to expand my palate. What my 40’s have shown me is that I want to be an entrepreneur.

As I write this, I’m watching Shark Tank, and I’m in the process of reading four books…three on entrepreneurship and one on forgiveness. (That one is necessary because I’m Italian and a damaged Christian…but that’s a topic for another blog post…lol!) I have finally found that thing that makes my heart sing. 

I shan’t be quitting my day job yet…but now I have something for which I am working. 

Have you found the thing that makes your heart sing? What is is? How are you working toward making it your full time gig? Let’s talk…share ideas…connect.
