BIG Changes

by Alyssa on March 7, 2013

If you follow me on Twitter and Facebook, you may have heard that I have a “big announcement” for today.

I Quit my job.

Two weeks ago, I turned in my notice that I was leaving my Marketing and Social Media position in order to pursue a career in Freelance writing. Thus, there will be some changes on the blog. I will obviously have more time to dedicate to writing and providing my readers with more useful information and more creative posts.

I can read and write anything health and fitness related from when I wake up until I fall asleep at night.

A lot of time went into making this decision, but I feel when you know that you love something and have that passion for it, it’s worth it to take a leap of faith if you have a way to earn a living from it.

Why?

Yes, I like security and knowing I’m getting paid week after week, but there’s something in the creation of your own career and lifestyle.

As you can view from previous posts over the last few months, I have been having an extremely difficult time balancing my health, personal goals, career, and social life since none of it intertwined. This is part of the reason I want to follow my dream. My personal goals and things I want to do in life – traveling and experiences – are things I want to be part of my career, as well. Now they can be. icon smile BIG Changes

I’m looking forward to loving every single day again!

I hope to give my readers more awesome giveaways, like the Ellie giveaway this month, and be more of a resource than I have been the last two years that FunFitFashionable has existed. Thanks for all of the support :). Please bare with me during this transition into “better blogging” over the next month :D.
