My New Career Path!

My New Career PathWell...something you may not know about me is that I work for myself and offer web design services.  This past May (2010) I came up on a GREAT job as an Administrative Assistant, but I made the decision to resign.  I still feel like I made the right decision. 

Anyhow, I have known for a LONG time how to design websites, blogs, and various graphics, etc.  It started awhile back when I started dabbling around with building my own websites and blogging about family life and then designing blogs for various projects.  Once I spent so much time...and I do mean I was spending hours...and hours...and hours on my new hobby...and then my hobby caused me to REALLY become more experienced by being really able to "dive in" with experience in what I do.  Then others saw what I could do and without me actually offering my services I was being asked if I would help them with this project or that project.  It went from me helping out a few friends to building a site for a Church and a business, etc.  And I was even being told by others I should offer my services to others.  So I really thought I could open the door to something if I really tried and wanted to. 

So...before I ever became an Administrative Assistant (which was in May 2010), in January of 2010 I began So Stylilized as an effort to offer my design services to others.  I have MANY years of experience in designs and I LOVE design stuff plus a lot of people have told me MANY times that I should offer my services for others.  I feel that God gives us each a talent or a purpose (sometimes even more than one talent and purpose) and I don't think it is right for those talents and purposes to go to waste, and I felt before I started So Stylilized (seeing as how I had so much experience with design and I REALLY enjoy design) that God had gave me this talent and it was going to waste as I wasn't using it to help others.  So...So Stylilized was born.  It has been over a year since I started So Stylilized and I have did more with So Stylilized than I could ever, and I do mean EVER imagine.  Am I getting rich off of my services?  No! husband is the primary breadwinner and I am his wife and our kids mom first and fore-most and then I am a (website and some graphics) designer next and at this point I don't even put a price tag on my designs...I don't set an amount to charge...people can tip me in whatever amount they wish and I still am able to help people (who may or may not ordinarily be able to order a custom design while keeping it affordable for them with them just paying a tip and keeping it fair for me to get something for my time) AND I am able to still say I do my part in working at home while doing what I was put here to do first...which is my TRUE serve God and be wife and mom to the best people that God could have ever put in my life!!


  1. It's a wonderful thing to do what you love and make some money doing it. I hope to find that some day. I like my job ok, but I don't feel like I LOVE it.
