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, not improved, but different,
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.
