Hi! I was NOT raised to work in the creative sphere, but ended up a writer and had to learn from scratch, working against my natural tendencies.
So much of success is about putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward, not waiting for an obstacle-free path.
How are YOU doing in taking all of your next steps? Go for it!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: A former corporate trainer and business writer, MARILYN now writes from her studio in the Appalachian foothills of Southern Ohio. She produces feature articles and web content on leadership, technology, faith, grief, food, parenting and more. Her work has appeared in Moody Magazine, Leadership Journal, Guideposts, Upper Room and many other publications.
She is occasionally lured out of seclusion to teach about personal experience writing, lead workshops or speak at retreats. Sometimes she brings cookies.
Marilyn credits a spurt in productivity in recent years to the folks at AT&T, who have somehow managed to get her directory listing wrong for 6 years straight.
