Well, here I am. Home!
I don’t think any quote I’ve seen can sum up where I am in my life right now quite as much as this one:
AmandaLynneMurtagh.com is the only site that I have kept for years. It has been redone many times as I tried finding my brand, finding my path and figuring out how it all worked.
I have tried working with a corporation, I have tried hard sales and I have tried working with people I didn’t connect with. It all made me miserable. When you are miserable it shows in your work!
Sure we can’t do everything we love all the time but as solopreneurs we get to have more say in who we do and don’t work with. So here I am. If there is any business type or individuals I have always loved to work with it’s creatives and compassionates. People who use emotion, skill and those who want to make a difference in people’s lives.
This isn’t my final design, it will absolutely change over time. But, for now, it’s perfect.No matter how many mistakes or how many changes it still has to go through, it’s perfect! Simply because it’s where I’m meant to be, it’s home!
While building this site I realized that I was getting ahead of myself because I was excited.
I couldn’t decide what I wanted the homepage to look like because I had skipped some of the basic planning.
This got me thinking. Of course, most of the people looking for their first website don’t know what steps to take to plan out theirs either.
The homepage is going to simply be the blog until I have enough content on this site to create the homepage I wanted.
Next I will create a series of posts to help you plan your first site before having it built.
What to Expect?
For those who have joined me from past projects, I will continue to educate. I will continue to share my experiences, my research and my knowledge.
But here my personality isn’t a separate entity.
Here I will post inspiring journal entries, jewelry I have made, and so many personal statements.
Mostly I want this site to be inspiring and motivational as well as educational.
Building a business isn’t just about the building blocks and planning, it’s also about lifestyle. It’s about being motivated every step of the way. It’s about building a dream, learning new things and discovering new opportunities.
The business you start with may not be the business you end up with. It’s important for me to have this site where I can do many different things to help you see that it’s okay to find your own path rather than following the one others think you should.
I can only share what I have learned, experienced and discovered so sometimes I will post about other people’s articles and perhaps I will start having guest posts on here as well. After all I am also learning and I never want to stop!
