Say Goodbye to Survival Mode

It was almost 8 years ago that I said goodbye to survival mode.  My how time flies.  For me some key components to this included being let go from my full time job, having a third “surprise” baby and discovering how to get paid doing something I love.  All those things literally happened within a […]
