I never cease to shock myself. I have moments in my life when a realization smacks me in the face, and I'm nearly knocked off my feet.
1. I wake up with a stray dog in my apartment and it hits me- "I live in Cambodia"
2. I'm standing next to my art in a gallery, watching eyes scan across it, and all of a sudden I'm an artist.
3. Sitting in Starbucks, I open my computer and notice an overflowing inbox with questions about Facebook, Twitter and celebrities. For the first time I realize- "I'm an entrepreneur".
The last example just occurred a few seconds ago. I'm still reveling in the moment. After all, it was just a few weeks ago that I casually decided to start a company. A friend of mine told me it would take years to make any sort of profit and being Nikki Yeager I giggled a bit and told him I'd do it in months.
Thanks to a wonderful friend of mine, I already signed one major client and will be starting SEO/Social Media workshops next week. Due to a few strategic emails I may be booked for a speaking engagement in Ohio. My twitter has over a thousand followers (@SnagEveryone) and I've met some incredible Marketers along the way.
So here I am in Starbucks and the only thought I can manage is, "how does this happen to me?" Because it seems like I'm too lucky for my own good. I start a business and my friend hooks me up with a client that could determine the next few months of my life. I decide to be an artist and I'm in a gallery. I decide I want a boyfriend and the boy of my dreams waltzes into my life.
I don't know how I do it and I'd never give myself full credit because something else has to be helping me along.
Which is why I can't ever let go of my notion of fate. Everything has to happen for a reason because things don't fall into place without a little help from someone bigger than myself. There's just no way it'd be possible.
