I'm Pretty Sure I'm Going To Do It

Those are the eight words Bob just texted me.  This whole idea of Bob leaving his full time job to work with me full time is getting closer and closer to becoming a reality. And I'm feeling all the feels.

We're both feeling super excited and passionate and hopeful and confident about what we can do with Silhouette School if we put our manpower together. But that doesn't make it any less scary.

This whole blogger "career" thing already confuses people and makes them cock their heads like "you make money with that?"  Not that I really care what anyone else thinks, but I understand, in a way, why they question it.  Blogging is a brand new space in the working world. It's so non-traditional. It's so "secretive" in way - even amongst bloggers who've been at it for awhile.

There are still very few 'rules' and standards.  Full time pro bloggers are paving the way right now...we're making all the rules and busting all the questions as we go. Sometimes we don't even know what we're doing.  Things are changing so fast especially in the social media world that at times you're basically flying by the seat of your pants...thinking of new ways to optimize and monetize all these different opportunities.

That's basically where a lot of the scariness comes from - where will we be in 3 years?....5 years? Even one year? I tend to think, that as I've done over the last 8 years when I left the newsrooms to become a SAHM, one thing leads to another and another and another and before you know it your husband is 90-ish percent sure he's going to put in his notice leaving behind a six figure income to work with you with all intentions of more than making up the loss by the end of the year.

Right now I'm at the top of my game in my niche. The opportunities keep on coming and I don't see any type of end in sight - I don't even see the horizon. That's what pushing us forward with this decision - the huge opportunity we see right there in front of us if only we put all those questions behind us and just go for it.
