A career public relations professional for 25 years, I made an ubiquitous lifestyle change and am now self employed. As I continue contract work for a local business, I also enjoy marketing my own famous salsa along with selling quartz crystal in the local market and online. I have found my own natural resources are my most enthusiastic campaigns.
I seek simplicity and stillness. I had learned the impractical lifestyle of stress and scheduling and late hours. I had become one of those "late" people who always runs into the meeting with one shoe and a purse in my hand. I, by nature, am a habitually early person. This was my first clue that I had transformed, the beginning of my plans to pursue a more quiet and less 'scheduled' life. Now, it's much easier to enjoy things including time with my family. I would rather forgo all the money I had climbed that ladder for. Now I get it, nothing is worth sacrificing family and free time. Now, I laugh all the time.
