Chic Link Up

Happy Sunday! I was doing a little reading through my blog roll and came across this fun questionnaire. I found it on the Southern Glamourista's blog. I decided to join the link up and answer the questions too! What are some of your answers to these questions? Can't wait to see what everyone shares in the comments!
1. What is your dream job?
My dream job was to become a journalist. My major in college was broadcast journalism and I loved it. Ultimately I would have loved to have made it to a major network. CNN, NBC, CBS. But that was then. After college I discovered that I enjoyed connecting with people on a different level, which is why I love doing this blog. Who knows, maybe I'll still make it to a major network. Hopefully I'll be speaking on a panel with other Moms or getting interviewed because my children's book is on the NY Times Best Seller's list. I would be happy with either one of those! :-)
2. If you had just won the lottery and didn't need to work for money, what would you do with your time?
I would definitely travel and see the world. I would also start my own foundation for military families and give back to the families that help keep this country free.
3. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was a kid I wanted to be a teacher or a news anchor. I met (when I say met I mean she shook my hand) one of the local news anchors during a parade and it just stuck with me.
4. What piece of career advice would you give to someone just starting out in your field?
I would tell them the same thing I whisper in my daughter's ear every night before bed, "Dream as big as God's promise".  Pray and have faith. You can never go wrong with that piece of advice.

5. What are your biggest pet peeves in life, blogging, or at work?
Hmmm. I would say that my biggest pet peeve would be people being late. I hate being late for anything. 

6. What are your biggest fears?
My biggest fear is not living in my purpose.  I am very big on living a purpose driven life. (That book changed me. I still read it over and over again. Right along with The Secret.)

  8. I studied journalism in school too. The Purpose Driven life is one of my favorite books. I love the fact that you whisper words of affirmation to your daughter. I do that with my son too. I think it is a powerful way to empower and encourage our children.

    1. Yep. I think it's so important to start that with her now. It helps me too.
