Meet Your Blogger

Hey y'all! I'm Katie Marie. I am about to embark on a SUPER scary journey and I'd like you to join me. Please share my blogs, spread kindness, and let me know how you are doing! I want to hear from you. 

A little bit about me and what I am intending this blog to be. First and foremost know that I have a tinge of ADHD so if i struggle to stay on topic, well that's just who I am.  I've also been recently diagnosed with Social Anxiety, Depression, and PTSD.  Wow. 2020. What a year! Not only did I end up in social isolation 700 miles from my family but I found out my mind is struggling.  

All of this lead me to move from Virginia back to a small farm town in Illinois by family and this week, I quit my job. I did it.  I couldn't manage my health and the year that is 2020 while working a 9-5 no matter how badly I wanted to succeed at it. I'll be sharing more about that in my first blog so keep an eye out! 

So I'm going to be sharing so much with you about my life, but mostly my struggles with mental health, why I chose to leave corporate america, and a little about my hobbies which are endless.  I mean, my hobby is collecting hobbies. We are talking traveling to raising monarchs.  Selling nail polish to tearing down old barns.

I would love to take you on this journey with me from a 6 figure corporate project manager to a nail boss selling a $11 to $14 product.
