I’ve literally spent months and months trying to figure out what to say to you all. Last summer I took a job at a beauty brand that changed my life. At that point, I was full-time on Broke & Chic, writing about 3+ articles a day, but I didn’t love the stories I published. More quantity vs. quality, if ya know what I mean. So when a part-time job opportunity fell on my lap, I took it. I mean, it was part-time, right?
Well, it took up way more time than I expected and…I loved it. But my posting became sporadic. When my contract ended, I was offered an amazing position at PRIV as their full-time Talent Acquisition Manager. As a former hairstylist, it was a perfect fit. So I took it! That was in January and since then, I have posted fewer than 15 articles. I have mixed feelings about them, too.
That Tech Startup Life, Tho…
PRIV is a startup, so I have given it my all for over 11 months, but I wanted you all to know that I haven’t forgotten about you all.
When I was full-time on B&C, my goal was growth and I noticed I was slowly but surely taking myself out of every article and to be honest, I hate that. I resent it a bit. I am the epitome of Broke & Chic and taking myself out of it wasn’t ideal. But it was no doubt a learning experience.
So What’s Next?
Going forward, my articles will be different. I want to be more real with you all. I want to share my NYC struggles with you. I want to share the best places to eat and shop in the city. I also want to help you build that confidence to take that big leap of faith into the unknown. For me, that unknown was moving to NYC with a backpack and $5,000 over five years ago.
Again, I apologize for being MIA for almost a full-year. But I promise: Broke & Chic will be back better than ever.
P.S. What would you like to see on Broke & Chic going forward? Let me know in the comments below!
