That's it, its only been a month?
I guess I should calm down, I get a little crazy that I'm not in charge of the world yet, but to have started this business, moved into an office, found a couple clients, put up a site, and have business cards on their way... shit. Compared to the process that goes on in-house, i'm moving at lightning speed. If I were still a corporate whore I probably wouldn't have this computer yet, let alone an entire office or business cards.
Patience has never been a virtue of mine.
On that note, I've decided to write a book. Lack of patience has to do with it because I intend to use this book to gain credibility outside of my sphere of influence, assuming I can get people to read it. I've just read Lean In and all it did was make me what to punch whats-her-face.
I understand the importance of encouraging women to "lean in" but I also don't think the author, nor many women 'creatives' i know, are born/raised with those capabilities. And I don't think her name dropping is doing any real-time inspiring for women.
So my scrappy, loud little self is going to take a crack at it. Because it's more than leaning in. Its being confident enough to say, no, I'm talking, motherfucker, so you lean in to ME.
And delightful anecdotes about why I am the way I am. It should be highly entertaining at the very least.
So there it is, one month down and I'm an author now. Think I can't?! psshhhht
stay tuned. love, kels.
