Pursuing the Possibilities...

During my junior and senior years in high school, I would get these brochures in the mail all the time from local colleges and universities luring me to attend classes at their institution.  Tag lines like "Your dreams are within your reach" and "A great career awaits you" made my eyes brighten as I flipped through the pages excited about all of the classes I could take to land my dream job and make buckets of money.  I wasn't really sure what I was looking for or what I wanted.  So I figured hey, you can't really go wrong with an education in business.  Yeah, Ariane Hunter, CEO of XYZ corporation had a nice ring to it and so I went with it.



Seven years later with a Bachelor's in Business and an MBA under my belt and after several office jobs, I find myself in a position that I would've never imagined.  Sitting at my desk writing my very own business plan with an actual mission statement and objectives.  Budgeting through finance statements, tracking my business expenses, and creating pricing strategies for Ariane Hunter Photography.  Yeah, I know, that doesn't sound like a lot of fun.  It isn't, but this is my real attempt at bringing "my dreams within my reach" and finding that "great career that awaits me".  So for all the boring spreadsheets and trying to remember what my Accounting professor said, to me it is all justified for every moment I aspire towards living creatively.
