I never had a niche’. When asked what I wanted to ‘be when I grow up’ I’d throw out an answer they’d want to hear and drop it without giving much thought to it. My story would have to begin when I started working at a restaurant when I was 16 years old. (At the time I had JUST watched The Secret). I had a pretty bad group of friends at the time and was borderline dropping out of high school. I became addicted to my new friend ‘work’ and it quickly put me back on the right path.
Within 6 months I was the manager of the store (yes at 16) and as soon as I hit 18 I was regional manager of 10 restaurants. When I was 20 the stores went under forcing me to quickly find another job… and I did. I was working 40 hours a week in a Credit Union call center. I realized how pampered I had been enjoying my job the last 5 years, because to say I hated this one would be an understatement. It sucked the life out of me. I lost interest and all passion I had in my life. I was miserable. In desperation my thoughts went back to The Secret. I had read it and watched it when I was 16 but hadn’t much since…
I began reading and watching it religiously. I took the book with me everywhere. I’d read it while on the phones at work, or even just to see it there would remind me that I was close to better things. I became positive again and prayed to find my niche’.
One day I was on the internet and this girl, about my age popped up. She owned her own photography business and I was absolutely enthralled by it. I thought… ‘I could do that’. Funny how the law of attraction works isn’t it? Within a week I took a leap of faith and quit my job, bought a $3000.00 camera and went at it full speed ahead… I got a business license, branding, logo, and a style… People told me I couldn’t do it. People told me TOO many people already do it… and I cling to the words of Will Smith when he said: “There is NO reason to have a plan B because it distracts from plan A.”
This is my plan A and it has lead me down an extremely successful, profitable road. And I am forever grateful. PLEASE Read the Secret!!!!! It will change your life!!!!
