This is the start of a new chapter, and it’s one that I am excited to share with you. The sale of my half of The Everygirl is now finalized. I am no longer an owner and am no longer a part of The Everygirl or The Everymom.
At first, I stepped down to get Margot through treatment with a plan to return in early 2021. The decision to step down was a privilege that I am grateful for. Walking away from a successful, growing business is probably not what most people would do, but I’m not most people anymore. I know each day isn’t promised. I know what it’s like to live in a hospital. To know each day is a gift.
Life is different. I’m different. I only have it in me to focus on what matters and what I enjoy. Having both Anecdote and my blog made the decision to leave a lot easier. I have two things I am excited about that I can work on with flexibility.
There’s so much less pressure now. I love working for myself, taking on the partnerships I want to take on, posting when it feels right, and flexibility. My days are slower, I’m less stressed, taking better care of myself, and I have more time with my girls. Life feels really good.
I am a little nervous but mostly excited to share this news with you. I’m proud of the community I helped build, the connections I made along the way, and the women that were a part of our team throughout the years. This is a good thing and was the best decision for me and my family.
Thank you all for your support.
