Vacationing in Maine The Fall is off to a great travel start. In the last few weeks we have traveled to Wells, ME, Naples, ME and Craftsbury, VT. Why so much travel in just a few weeks you ask… well … Continue reading

This past weekend Jeb and I headed out for a weekend stay in Bristol, ME. Usually while we’re vacationing I look up different islands to explore that are with-in reach prior before arriving. For this trip I discovered Monhegan Island, … Continue reading
It’s been exactly one year since I left my job and traveled the country in my boyfriend’s truck for three months! I really cannot believe it’s been a year… It seems as though I appreciate the adventure now more than ever and continually thank myself for finding the courage to take such a big leap of faith.
When I told people I quit my job to go on this trip the reactions were varied. Some people thought it was the best idea ever, while others thought I had ended my career. The good news is, my career has not ended but has taken an amazing and positive direction into me opening my own marketing & creative services company called Creative TK Consulting!
It’s funny because my company was not in my grand plan, but to be honest, I didn’t have a grand plan. After returning from my trip I began doing marketing for my sister, owner of Dragonfly Photography, in Newburyport. We would go on various networking events together and quickly I had small businesses asking me for marketing assistance. I thought about starting my own consulting company for about for a week and decided to go for it – after all what did I have to lose!
Some people would call me crazy for not doing intense market research before starting a business… but I just had a gut feeling it was going to turn out ok! It’s amazing when you have an intuition and can freely run with it. That doesn’t happen very often in our planned/calculated lives.
Each one of my clients is different and I guess that’s why I find this job perfect for me. On any given day I could be planning a grand opening party, taking photos of meat (yes, meat), convincing the papers to do a feature, writing a grassroots marketing plan or doing invoices (yay). Every day is different and everyday is meaningful to these small business owners. I really love being apart of their team and helping them succeed!
I hope you have had an amazing year as well!
