New year, new blog, new outlook

I started writing this post talking about how I started this blog a year ago….only to realize that’s not true. I’ve actually had this blog for almost 2 whole years. I’m still struggling to remember to post things or even coming up with things to talk about, but it has become important to me. Even though it’s only 2 years old, I’ve had my Fashiccountant persona for almost 4 years. To say it hasn’t become a part of who I am, would be a lie. It has helped me connect with so many amazing people. It has also helped me get through some rough patches.

When I started fashiccountant, I was starting my career in accounting and I had very high aspirations about where I was going. I had no thoughts about marriage or kids….not that I didn’t want either, I was just more focused on my career. I left my first job and started working at a new company where I met my amazing husband and very quickly found out I was pregnant with bean. Career HALTED. I was out of a job, pregnant and struggling to find my place. Thankfully I had an easy pregnancy. It’s not something I particularly want to do again, but I didn’t hate it.

I had my wonderful little bean and started looking for a job. I couldn’t imagine being away from him for 40 hours a week. So I found a part time job, something I thought would be a great opportunity. Unfortunately it wasn’t. You have heard the story. A new person started and she and I just did NOT click. I started to hate my job. It was no longer the great opportunity I thought it was.

Fast forward to now. I work for an amazing company that operates world wide. No, it’s not my dream job, but I like what I do and I like who I work with. I am finally starting to feel like I’m getting my career back on track. There are times when I feel like the rest of my life is a complete mess (including my living room floor) but I know that my job is stable and it is a great place that I can see myself staying at for a very long time.

With that being said, I am happy to announce that I am starting 2016 with a new name and a new goal for my social media persona. While this blog will still be at fashiccountant.com, Fashiccountant will cease to exist. Welcome to the new, notĀ improved, but different,

 

POWER_REDHEAD!

To me, Power_redhead is a focused, proactive, strong-willed person. It is not specifically for redheads (that’s just the wonderful color of my hair). It is a way of life, a drive and a determination to succeed. I know that I will be doing my best to live my life as I feel a power_redhead would and I am hoping that I can encourage, support and inspire others to do the best that they can in whatever they do.
