You’re never too old or too young or too anything to have an impact on the world. You just have to take the first step and get started.
Roughly two years ago I had a sense that I was quietly, privately disappointed in myself. I found myself sitting behind a desk in a fog of unwavering boredom. I had become a Business Manager for a wealth management firm. I had done everything I was supposed to do to become successful and yet I still found myself sucked dry and not happy.
So, I did what any rational person that has a dream would do; I quit my office job, got a fulltime job at a restaurant as a server and went back to school. I enrolled in an Esthetics school in Denver and 6 months later I had received my license.
Today, my dream is to become one of Denver’s most sought after makeup artist. My passion has always been makeup, even when I was a little kid with ratty hair and pimples I knew that this was the world in which I belonged and that makeup would make it into my future one way or another. Now I am looking to open a makeup boutique in early spring of 2016 to make my dream a reality.
You see, almost one year ago when I quit my office job I was told that I was making a huge mistake. And well, if it was a mistake, it’s the best fucking mistake I’ve ever made in my entire life! I am one step closer to achieving my dream and it all starting with me taking the first step.
