The Art of Knowing


There is an art to knowing where to start.  And how to start.  And when to start.  I know there must be.  I also know enough to know I have not mastered that art.

There have been big changes happening for me.  Remember the job that I used to sometimes talk about, but not that openly?  The one I would sometimes mention only to say that I loved it or to show you some great pictures I had the opportunity to take there?  Well, eight and half years later, that job is over.  I've moved on and I'm in the midst of "finding myself" professionally.


Don't worry, I hate me for saying that too.

The truth is, that I'm finding my way to professional freedom.  I'm not entirely sure what that looks like yet, but I'm getting there.  I'm finding my way towards working with people and places on things and ideas that excite me and I'm using all the skills in my tool belt to do just that.  It sounds crazy, but it feels like the minute I made up my mind to do this, all of the pieces have started to fall into place.  Am I still worried that someone is going to come along and pull the rug out from under me and that I suddenly won't be able to pay the mortgage?  That everyone will realize that I'm as much of a fraud as I fear I am in my darkest moments?  Of course I'm worried about that.  But mostly I'm optimistic.

I'll be launching my new website Miss Social Media soon to let you all know about my Social Media Consulting business. Already I am working with an AMAZING client (more on that later) and I can't wait to expand. 

I'm also really excited to give Tracey Nolan Studios the time and focus it deserves.  Pop by the website to see some of my recent sessions.

Lastly, I'm hoping to find time to write more.  I'm not sure how this blog will evolve as my professional life does, but that's kind of the fun part, isn't it?  You never do know where life will lead you.
