Life doesn’t wait until 5 PM.
At Miss Corporate Dropout, I write about how to live an enjoyable life without the confines of a mundane corporate job. I’ll help you find side hustles that generate income and allow you to focus on living life on your terms. You’ll find tips and tricks to maximize all the available resources at your disposal that will help you lead an adventurous life. I also touch on topics that affect today’s millennial women. What my readers love most is reading content from the perspective of a woman who walked away from a well-paying job with the determination to increase income and decrease stress, all while having fun.
A Little About Me (as told by a list of random facts)
1. I was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. I’ve never met Dorothy or Toto, but I’ve seen a tornado or two in my day.
2. The Emerald City. I relocated to the Seattle, Washington area for a new job when I was 26. I believe it’s the most beautiful city in the good ‘ol U. S. of A.
3. Sayonara. I left my corporate job in January 2017 at the age of 33 to pursue “working smart, not hard” through various side hustles and revenue streams. My experiences, among other topics, will be shared on this blog.
4. Balloons are my biggest fear. Yes, that’s right. I’ve been afraid of balloons since I was a little girl because of the loud *BOOM* when they pop. I feel like this is a completely rational phobia, and it’s the people who are afraid of spiders who need to see a therapist, not me. I’m confident that I could win the Boston Marathon if someone volunteered to chase me with a balloon.
6. French Fries are my first love. I can think of nothing that makes me happier than piping hot french fries. About 10 years ago someone on an online forum perfectly captured my feelings when they summarized their hope for the afterlife:
“When I die, I want to wake up naked on a pile of french fries. They’ll be warm and seasoned with Lawry’s.”
7. I first started blogging in 2003 when Xanga was all the rage. I’ve actually met a few of my real-life friends through Xanga and old school AOL chat rooms.
8. I believe that honesty is the best policy. Sugar coating is for donuts, not people.
9. That’s what I hope to do for you here at Miss Corporate Dropout – provide an honest perspective on a variety of topics affecting millenial women.
