My name is Christine OKelly and I am an internet entrepreneur. I work for myself entirely online through I variety of different ventures. I’m not exactly where I want to be yet, but am light years away from where I started.
Just over 2 years ago I was an operations manager for an internet start up company working 12 hour days, addicted to my Blackberry, ignoring my family, and becoming a shell of a person. My body required 10 shots of espresso per day, 1 Rockstar energy drink, and several Vivarin’s to remain functional. I was a superstar at work and unavailable to my own self and my family.
Today, I support my entire family while working around the things that are important to me. I walk my kids to and from school every day – they think I’m a stay at home mom. But it’s quite the opposite. I work when my energy is at it’s peak instead of sitting behind a desk just to fill a chair all day. I take breaks when I’m not into it. I love “working” because its a challenge and a form of creative expression.
I love talking to other people about their entrepreneurial journeys and their quests to escape the cubicle. My hope is that this blog serves as a place for like-minded, entrepreneurial free thinkers to meet and share advice and stories with one another.
I’ve introduced myself, now it’s your turn! Do you have an entrepreneurial spirit? Have you made the leap to working for yourself and pursuing your entrepreneurial dreams? Introduce your blog and/or your business – I look forward to meeting you!
