I Quit My Job…

If you would had told me 5 years ago that I would be an « influencer » , «  blogger », or whatever you want to call this peculiar job, I probably would’ve laughed. Not only was I not familiar with this profession, but I was well off into my legal career (read all about my legal career here). Not to mention, I am a very private, introverted person by nature and putting myself out on the internet was the last thing I thought I would be doing.

I had my path all laid out; Go to law school, get my degree, pass the Bar exam, intern and work in a firm as an attorney… and I completed every one of these goals. Apparently that wasn’t enough and I furthermore decided to specialize in real estate law (again, you can read all about my legal career in this blog post)? However, life has a funny way of taking you a different direction sometimes. Up until today, I did not want to give up something which I was so proud of and worked so hard to achieve. I didn’t want to let go of this part of my life that had taken me so much blood, sweat and tears (a lot of tears) to accomplish. But I also didn’t want to ignore another side of my life that was telling me it was probably time to let go.

Never in a million years would I have thought myself capable of building such a strong community through a little app called Instagram and I am so grateful for it. And although 151K might not seem like a lot compared to some of my peers, I’m so grateful for each and every one of you guys. I fell in love with not only sharing my outfits, but also sharing my everyday life with this community. This community I’ve built became much more than just a hobby. It became a job, a dream and a platform that I can see becoming so much more. So for that I want to thank you guys. And as cliché as this sounds, I wouldn’t be where I am without all of you.

That is why I decided to take the next step in my career… This month, I officially left my formal job as a company’s in-house lawyer behind and decided it was time to invest myself (ALL of myself) into this new venture. You might think leaving behind a part of my life I worked so hard on achieving (over 10 years when you count my college education!) is crazy. And yes, it is scary, bittersweet, or call it crazy if you’d like, but I believe it is the right path for me at this moment in time. If anything, I am excited to finally be able to give this business the time and energy it deserves. This change will allow me to not only post more content, but be a lot more present for you guys (more active on IG stories and hopefully more Youtube videos!).

So here’s to the first of many changes happening in 2020! I’m excited for what’s to come and even more excited to take you guys along for the ride.

    Mazal Tov, Steph! On following your dreams and on your pregnancy. And duh, I figured out the answer to my own question about your having earned a law degree.
