In case you haven’t heard, I dropped out of school and started modeling. I know it probably isn’t the path that most of you thought I’d go down, but life has a weird way of winding the road when you least expect it.

As you have probably guessed, I am totally kidding. I have just started working with an amazing photographer and needed to show off some of his work from one of our most recent shoots. His name is Anton and you HAVE to check him out! If you are located in South Florida and you need a photographer, talk to him. He will take care of you.

So anyway, I am still in school (just for a few more months though). I am actually in the process of launching my own content writing business and have been lucky enough to have help from several other other entrepreneurs along the way.

New beginnings can be difficult. Starting a new business is very difficult. Even if you’re good at what you do, the technicalities and legalities can be a bit tricky.

I have learned the importance of asking for help and delegating tasks outside of my expertise sooo quickly. Collaboration is a very important part of success in any area of life.

Identifying my shortcomings has helped me to find solutions to bumps and roadblocks along the way.

Backtracking and reevaluating has become an everyday thing. I’m constantly tweaking my plan of action and seeing what I can do better. It’s so crazy to think about how this business is my brainchild and my actions will make or break it. It gets a bit overwhelming at times, but I

In the past few months, I have also learned that success does not come overnight. Every step I take is one in the right direction. No matter how big or small, every little accomplishment pushes me closer to the bigger picture. There is success in every step.

I’m not sure if the point of this post is to motivate myself or to motivate others. Maybe it was just to share those super cute pictures. Who knows?
