For me, the hustle started at age nine.
I had desperately wanted a ball and mitt set that I saw at the local grocery store and begged my parents to buy it for me. My father looked me in the eye and told me that if I wanted anything badly enough, I needed to be ready to work for it.
...so I spent the next two days of my summer vacation casing the neighborhoods to determine who I could deliver the regional weekly newspaper to. The closest area was over a mile away - and off I went. For four days, I went door to door offering to be the papergirl of their dreams. I took detailed notes about who was home, who said to come back later, and who didn't answer the door - and I relentlessly knocked on doors until I had thirty houses to deliver the paper to. I worked hard. I hustled harder.
It has defined my life.
I am a customer service obsessed, endlessly driven, content writing professional with over twenty years of experience in a professional setting and over thirty years in freelancing. My combination of life experience, personal motivation, higher education, and consistently advancing professional career has left me with a wealth of knowledge that I look forward to sharing with you.
Live fiercely. Work hard. Hustle harder.
