I Am Going To Be Self-Employed!

I am terrified… but so excited! This is a really long term dream of mine. Something I have hoped for and wanted for such a long time I can’t even remember where it started anymore.



I’m going to be baking full time to generate an income, so I will hopefully never have turn an order away again.

I’m going to be dipping my toes in the water that is the wedding industry too. Several opportunities seem to have presented themselves and I will be investigating those to examine their potential.

I am also going to be devoting more time to my passion for supporting parents of ADHDers and creating awareness around ADHD and its treatment. Not working for a boss means I can attend more school meetings and go to more talks on the subject.


Damien no longer being in school means I have time now to focus on me… but I would never have been able to take this step and actually follow my dreams if it weren’t for my sweet Glugster’s support. I would have had to save up and stash money for a loooong time before I could give up a proper reliable salary.

I am still more than a little nervous about handing all financial responsibility over to my sweetheart… you single mom’s will get where I’m coming from on this… but as my boss says, “When its time, its time.”


My bosses are all for personal growth and have always encouraged their staff to learn and grow, so I knew I would have nothing but support from them when I spoke to them about going off on my own. I’ve been exceptionally lucky in that respect. Of course, my darling Glugs will not be “carrying” me indefinitely, if this all doesn’t work and I’m still not making a living off of it in about 6 months, I will have to go back into the work market and find employment again, so hold thumbs I don’t fork this up completely bunnies!!


So I handed in my letter of resignation.

Signed and everything.

My last day is July 22nd, shortly before the wedding. I’ll be sticking a ticker up in my sidebar, but along with the wedding ticker I don’t reeeeally need another one!
