About Me

Hello! and welcome to Pursuing My Dream. My name is Sue and this website/blog has been years in the making.  Pull up a chair and let me take a few minutes to share a little bit about myself.

I am an avid reader and growing up you would find me at the library or in my favorite corner with my nose in a good book. I have  read every Nancy Drew mystery that I could get my hands on and learned a lot from the Babysitters Club and Judy Blume. I was not the kid playing in sports, but the one on the sidelines cheering the home team on. You could say that I am a natural cheerleader and supporter of others accomplishing their dreams. I am also an avid learner and love to share the knowledge that I have gained from my experiences in life.

My passions and natural ability lead me to a 20+ year career in higher education and I have done everything on the administrative side; administrative assistant, quality control analyst, team trainer, business analyst, customer service representative, evaluator, and project manager. At one time in my life, I thought I would be a grade school teacher, but a summer as a mother’s helper taught me that patience is not my best virtue.

While I was laid off for a short period of time in 2011, I bided my time dabbling into blogging and freelance writing; which I enjoyed immensely. Not knowing how to make a living off of it and needing to find a way to pay the bills, I went back in the (big) business sector with the yearning inside of me to follow my passion and to pursue my dream; a dream of becoming a successful published writer.

Jump forward a few years and I have finally decided to pursue that dream and make it a reality. While I still work a 9 to 5 job, I am trying to move out of the business sector (working for someone else) into the solo-business sector (working for me). So, come join me as I blog about my journey into freelance writing, learning to write/publish a few ebooks, try to help others learn to pursue their own dreams (whether it is to be a writer, blogger, solopreneur, or find a new career), share my knowledge and mistakes, and introduce you to new ideas.

Remember that nothing is impossible. As Walt Disney said, “If you can dream it, you can do it”!
