Well, I’ve been hinting that something exciting was going to be revealed…and the time has finally come to share it with you. Today is my last day of full-time employment in my current role, and next week, I will be a full-time creative entrepreneur. But that’s not all. If you follow me on social media, you may have seen a new handle floating around. That’s because I am launching a social media and public relations agency called In Steil Comms. that specializes in helping mission-driven people, brands, and organizations tell their stories. While I’m still putting the finishing touches on the website, you can give a follow over on Instagram in the meantime. I’ll be sharing more next week about how to work with In Steil Comms., so stay tuned.
If you’re wondering how I got to this point, keep reading. It all started when I decided to hire a business coach and enroll in Camp Clarity with Diana Davis. That decision and the next 90 days changed everything for me and gave me the encouragement to do something I have always wanted to do—go out on my own. After changing jobs numerous times over the past few years, I came to realize that I have too many passions to stay in one role long-term. That knowledge made the decision to start something on my own an easier one for me. I credit the support I received from my Camp Clarity cohort and the ability to have a safe space to run business ideas by other creative entrepreneurs in this group with helping me to get this agency off the ground. When I say that Camp Clarity was a transformative experience, I really mean it. It was the best investment I have ever made!
The other factor that entered into this decision is my current full-time role as a caregiver. After balancing a full-time job with my caregiving duties for more than a year, I realized that it was taking a toll on my health and that it likely wouldn’t be a sustainable schedule for much longer. Obviously, my role as a caregiver is one that I take extremely seriously, so having the ability to work when and where I can became increasingly more important to me.
The last few months have been filled with so much personal growth, and I am proud of how far I’ve come. When I started Camp Clarity, I knew that I wanted to rebrand my blog, and I had recently launched The Hospital Bar. But I wasn’t entirely sure what my next steps were with either. Now, I’ve created an agency that ties my advocacy work with my background in social media and public relations, I have an updated blog that I love writing new posts for, and I’ve created a growing community for caregivers at The Hospital Bar.
Get ready to meet In Steil Comms. next week!
